Timeless Tartans in Shirts and Robes
|Submitted by: Dennis Dann

|A resurgence of Timeless Plaids and Tartans from the past !
Certain things can go on and off the Fashion pages....usually in the bat of an eye. There are then the timeless items which never have to leave your wardrobe. Traditional Scottish Tartans in Shirts and Robes for men are one such item. (Scottish Kilts for the truly adventurous !)
You have likely heard the names.....Blackwatch, Red Stewart, Ancient Dress Stewart,
Dress Gordon, Weathered Campbell and many others that are simply referred to as Glen
Plaids, District Checks, Tattersalls. I love tartans under Cashmere sweater vests with a
very subtle patterned tie.......or a knit necktie. Plaid and Tartan Shirts are great with
jeans or cords.....and even mixed with Dress pants and Cashmere sweaters, good looking
Navy Blue Blazer....all timeless clothing items
There is a certain friendliness about dressing this way. You will certainly look right at home at a Brunch in a grand Country Inn in New England dressed this way but I think there is a certain warmth that it could bring to an urban life as well. We, as Men's retailers, often hear that someone is replacing a very well-loved and well worn Blackwatch Plaid shirt............after 16 years of solid duty, its time to get a new one. I love to think that someone had the good taste 16 years ago to make this purchase and it looked so good and served them so well for so many years. I also like people who are sentimental about things............it says a great deal about their warmth as a person, I think.
A traditional tartan in a Viyella robe is also something that will give years of service. All you need is someone to bring you a Scotch by the fire at night or breakfast in bed and you are really set in life !
Many men, particularly as they age a bit, reach for the familiar and the things they can count on in life. A job they enjoy, a steady income, warm companionship, a nice family and circle of friends. "Old friends" in their closet also become important. Plaid shirts and robes like Viyella (a very long standing company) and those from the new collection of Braeval (with its interesting Bi-swing backs and leather gun patches). Warm and rich colorations and the soft hand of the garment make this a very well received gift.
When you are wondering what to buy a man next, reach for something warm and familiar.
He'll love you for it !
