Houndstooth Outfits: The new “wow” pattern in fashion first emerged in Scotland in the 18th century. This pattern was called “shepherd’s plaid” or “dog’s tooth” because it was the first in woven woolen fabric, originally used to make traditional shepherd outerwear to protect against extreme cold. It was later adopted by various prestige fashion brands to use it for commercial purposes.
The modern houndstooth pattern is an alternating light and dark contrast thread pattern, conventionally crafted in classic black and white contrast. Nowadays, however, the houndstooth pattern is also used in various other color combinations.
