Prince of Wales check is probably the one we are all more familiar with and tends to be saved for tailoring jackets, trousers and skirts. Tartan is not just for kilts, Burberry being the most iconic fashion tartan. Probably best kept for accessories and not the Bay City Rollers all over look. Window pane check, clean cut square check and great on soft flannel trousers and jackets. Gingham check you can leave to the summer months.
