The argyle pattern is said to have been derived from the tartan of Clan Campbell, of Argyll in western Scotland. It has seen a resurgence in popularity in the last few years, due to its adoption by Stuart Stockdale in collections produced by luxury clothing manufacturer, Pringle of Scotland.
As a knitting pattern, argyle is generally accomplished using the intarsia technique. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argyle
You will come to know that I love most things J.Crew, I especially love their argyle pieces year after year (I even own a few). Great color combinations and fabrics.
This Gap sweater looks cozy and is subtle enough for those not very daring in the bold prints, patterns and colors department (perhaps someone like my dear friend Mrs. Reynolds).
And these socks just look just as cozy. Gap socks are my favorite. Such cute patterns, even if no one ever sees them.
I think this outfit from J. Crew is h.o.t. Or maybe its just the guy....
This simple and not OTT (over the top) t-shirt from Urban Outfitters would be cute on a guy who is not uber preppy.
I have a little friend named Waldo who would look oh so adorable in this little sweater and/or collar from Old Navy
