Houndstooth Suits, Cloth, Fashion, Luxury

The houndstooth is one of Marc’s favourite fabric designs. Originated in Scotland in the 1800s, originally worn as an outer garment of woven wool cloth by shepherds. The pattern is still popular to this day in tweed and wool fabrics. It’s a duotone pattern that is characterised by its abstract four-pointed shapes, most often in black and white.
