Text by Cheryl and Jeffrey Katz

Growing up, did you ever crave a tartan kilt or a pair of madras shorts? Did you lust over all things plaid? Do you remember when your fascination with intersecting horizontal and vertical bands replaced your love of the humble stripe? As an adult, did a particular plaid pattern become part of every decorating scheme you ever considered? Did you sometimes mix plaids with wild abandon? Were you thankful for subtle, mono-chromatic plaids during the first decade of the 2000s, when a certain amount of restraint was de rigueur?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, take heart. We understand your plaid obsession and are delighted to share some good news: a collection of re-colored, re-scaled, unexpected, and just plain wonderful plaids. Go ahead, indulge that fancy—be it tartan, gingham, tattersall, madras, glen, or buffalo—go mad for plaid.
