Was it Paul Bunyan? The lumberjacks of Maine? Where exactly did the phenomenon come from? When it comes to the classic red and black buffalo plaid, it seems this pattern has endured for a very long time.
Buffalo plaid may have originated from the N.E. Mills but probably pre dates this with its roots in bonnie old Scotland. What we do know is that the pattern has been a staple for well over 150 years and is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
This style of shirt has been a hit with workers, lumberjacks, outdoorsmen and west coast rockers for living memory and beyond. Legend has it that one of the early designers of the distinctive style owned a herd of buffalo and that’s how it got its name.
