PLAID

Dead men don't wear plaid!

Apparently, the living should fear  wearing plaid as well!


For example a Californian man who was pissed with his wife channeled his anger by trying to run down a walker, he chose the guy because he was wearing  a plaid jacket!

 The pedestrian jumped safely away, and the driver is jailed on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

 I like the casual plaid shirt, it has had a place in my closet for years.I don't like change.

Tartan plaid usage dates back to 16th-century Scotland, specifically the Highlands area, says Jeffrey Banks, co-author of the 2007 book "Tartan: Romancing the Plaid." Plaid has long been a staple at places like Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren, and versions have been widely used for decades, from Burberry's iconic pattern to red-and-black buffalo checks.

  Lately, designers have moved towards bolder, brighter colors. In fact, I get tormented at times by younger co-workers about my plaid shirts because they make me look old. I normally retort that Arnold Palmer is my best bud!

Plaid is a genuine hit that can be sold to all types of men—from those who never read fashion magazines to those who watch live-streamed runway shows. It has a  rare universal appeal, but it does drive some people nuts.
