Did you know that there is a Japanese tartan? Designed by David McGill in 2008 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the first treaty between Japan and the UK (1858) and the arrival of the 'Scottish Samurai' Thomas Blake Glover in Nagasaki (1859) and based on the sakura (cherry blossom) in Spring (second from top). I am wholly committed to a check or plaid - particularly those by Begg & Co. (scarf and loom, above) and their recent boom on the runways - Delphine Manivet at top, Thom Browne and Derek Lam above.
