Buffalo Plaid Overshirt

 The Overshirt is Underrated. 

The key to fall is layering. And for that, the Wool Overshirt might just be man's (second) best friend. Often worn and rarely washed, the overshirt will find its way off a hanger on a brisk Sunday morning in September, and live on your door knob until spring.

Traditionally, Buffalo Plaid is found in red and black, and is often associated with Rob Roy MacGregor tartans. (As a side note - all tartans are plaid, but not all plaids are tartan - which you can read more about here). The pattern need not be red and black, so long as the two rows of colors’ perpendicular intersection creates a third color from the blend of the two primary colors. Our Buffalo Plaid boasts black and white, their tertiary color becoming a type of grey. 

Fabric featuring MacGregor Plaid made its way to the United States in the early 19th century and was commonly traded between the various North American cultures on the frontier. Somehow, the Rob Roy tartan made its way to Woolrich Woolen Mill, where the factory’s owner supposedly named his “Buffalo Plaid” line after his herd of buffalo (a discussion for another day).
