So, argyle is a pattern of rhombuses or squares, which transforms into parallel or transverse stripes of different shades. Usually the brightest colors! The term came from amazing Scotland, namely the Campbell clan from the west of the state. At the beginning of the 20th century, the pattern gained incredible popularity: probably, the Duke of Windsor, who played golf in a similar form, contributed to this. Players began to repeat this image.
After the First World War, argyle did not stand aside, then it was a little forgotten. The tradition was revived with renewed vigor in 2019 – the most successful podiums in the world showed collections of clothes with patterns to the public. Originally associated with golf, the design now refers to everyday wear and even football uniforms – the American club “Sporting Kansas City” was crazy about this style.
