Plaid is a textile pattern that has been around for centuries. According to textile historian E. J. W. Barber, the Hallstatt culture, which is linked with ancient Celtic populations produced tartan-like textiles as long ago as 100 BC. So, plaid has been in and out of style for hundreds of years. Nowadays, plaid is a relatively widely used pattern, and can be seen on both the haute couture runways and out on fields and ranches around the world. It can be dressed up or down and gives an effortless, carefree look to any outfit.
While some think that plaid should be reserved for farmers, it’s been seen on stylish men all over the globe, rocking it as hard as ever. Here are a few stylish guys from all over the world in various patterns and textiles of plaid.
