Lumberjack Chic & Buffalo Plaid

I've noticed as the weather gets colder I seem to dress like a lumberjack. Lumberjack chic?

I learned today that this particular plaid pattern is called "Buffalo Plaid". Some note the first shirt with this broad, two color, checked pattern was produced by Woolrich around 1850. Woolrich is in Pennsylvania, and I have been there several times. I can attest that they have a boatload of Buffalo Plaid there.

The history seems to go back a little further to the Rob Roy tartan of Clan MacGregor in Scotland. One of the clan descendants settled in Montana and traded blankets with the pattern for buffalo pelts - thus the name.

Aaron got me this outfit! I wasn't sure if I would like skinny cords or not... it seems contradictory, but I love them!


  1. Love those brown boots! Where from?

    1. Carol, they are from Sole Society. I think it is online only.

  2. Thanks! Natasha? Sadly out of stock though
