The Tartan Pants
If you buy one new pair of trousers this Winter, it’s got to be the tartan pants. The Scottish fabric, originally made for the kilt, goes thousands of years back in time. Each sort and colour of tartan used to link to a sudden district, and later each tartan was linked to a Scottish clan. in 1747 there was the ‘Dress Act’, tartan was not allowed to be worn anymore when England and Scotland became one. After 35 years the ‘Dress Act’ was over, however most of the cultural history of Scotland was already gone and so was the combination of the tartan with the clan. Now-a-days still some tartan patterns are only allowed to be worn by the clan. And a few patterns have a patent, like Burberry for example. The red ‘Royal Stewart Tartan’ is the most popular.
