An History of the Check Shirt 

An enduring menswear classic, the checked/plaid shirt is something every man should own. With a history that dates right back to Scottish tartan in the 1500s, and with some evidence that checked pieces even existed as far back as Europe in 400BC, it certainly is a style we can’t seem to get away from. Why? Because it’s a classic.

Check/plaid shirts first became particularly popular in the early 20th century when lumberjacks, cowboys and hunters took a liking to the check design. We have American cult folklore figure, Paul Bunyan, to thank as well for promoting the signature red plaid shirt. Back then, the check shirt was a symbol and a uniform for manual work, rather than a casual, stylish piece.

After the Second World War, plaid and check shirts garnered more and more attention and soon made its way into popular culture. In 1945 a women’s version was created. People were attracted to its adventurous, laid-back and rugged appeal. Idols began wearing check shirts which made them even more appealing. In 1963, The Beach Boys all wore plaid shirts on the cover of their album, Surfer Girl. Then the grunge movement in 1990 positioned the check/plaid shirt as an iconic fashionable piece worn by the likes of Kurt Cobain, Pearl Jam and other musicians associated with rock.  And today, the check/plaid shirt is still as iconic as ever.
