One of the defining characteristics of glen plaid is the presence of several rows of thin lines forming large squares filled with hounds tooth check. The lines can be of different shades, but they are always similar in colours, without sharp contrasts. Classic colours are white, black and grey, but others can also be used. It is important to use dim, muted shades.
The pattern was invented in the 19th century and quickly became popular. Not only suits were sewn with it, but even military uniforms. As a rule, glen is applied to woolen materials, but both dense cotton and mixed fabrics with the addition of synthetic threads are appropriate. While purchasing in our shop, you can be sure that all materials are of high quality, and the classic pattern will only emphasizes their excellent characteristics and great appearance.
Traditionally, glen plaid is used for tailoring costumes, both male and female. Jackets, trousers and coats are the main clothes where this recognizable pattern is applied. It is combined not only with plain materials, but also with other check varieties. For example, with a large check on a plain background.
However, today designers are moving away from traditional models and offer more ways to use this pattern. For instance, our collection presents materials with brighter check that can dilute a strict office style. Modern fashion designers introduce new images involving a combination of glen plaid with bright, contrasting accessories. You can find such materials for sewing in the Tessuti dell'Arte online shop.
