Royal Stewart is the most popular of Scottish plaids, favored by Queen Elizabeth II. Tartan Clan Plaids are an invented tradition, dating to the beginning of the 19th century. However plaids were worn for several centuries. From Wiki: “Contemporary portraits show that although tartan is of an early date, the pattern worn depended not on the wearer's clan, but upon his or her location, or personal taste. The idea of groups of men wearing the same tartan is thought to originate from the military units in the 18th century. Evidence suggests that in 1725 the Independent Highland Companies may have worn a uniform tartan.”

Clothing at The RetroFab is quality second hand vintage, newer, and new with tags. There may be small flaws, which will be noted in the descriptions. We believe in SLOW FASHION around these parts.
