Plaid booster and critter aficionado David Hart just unleashed a new set of tartan ties via a charming web video. The ties are ultra-thin plaids that call Ed Sullivan to mind. If you’ve got any razor-lapeled suits in your closet (or you just love jazz violin), this one’s for you.
We’ve been a little hard on plaid lately…but maybe it’s because we haven’t seen anything from a real Scot.
This Tartaned trench comes from one more of J. Crew’s impeccable collaborations. This time, it’s the Scottish brand Mackintosh: the company more responsible than any other for protecting the Britons from near-constant rain. Their first collab showed up at the Tribeca store in a flat navy, but they just updated it into a plaid that gives it a little more cultural charm.
