    NYT: Buffalo plaid, an uncomplicated icon of woodsy masculinity, is now a bit of a camp classic.

    Buffalo plaid emulates a pattern, or ‘‘sett,’’ that the Scottish Register of Tartans calls Rob Roy Macgregor. Bold and primitive, it entered the record of design in 1704 and evolved in a context where the politics of style were matters of war.

    What does this have to do with art and entertainment???
    Plaid shirts are worn by lumber jacks and lesbians.
    A sure sign of masculinity and ruggedness

    A VERY cool look for cool heads circa 1969.

    I like plaid flannel shirts, especially the Portuguese kind, but HATE it when the pockets are askew with the overall plaid on the shirt, as shown in the 5th post, above. Sure sign of a cheap POS! icon_evil.gif

    Square/rectangular shapes tend to be seen as more masculine in design I've noticed. Whereas circular shapes tend to be seen as more feminine. Not sure why. Maybe it has to do with sharp edges and lines.

    Frankly, I think it is more the man in the plaid than the plaid itself.
