A bit of history

The checkered print is traditionally associated with the Scottish kilt, which depicts the well-known tartan check. It is worth noting that in Scotland there are quite strict rules for wearing tartans, depending on the locality, clan and even military unit.

An interesting fact is that a certain prototype of a man's suit in a cage is found among the Ancient Celts, the ancestors of the Scots.

However, the history of this print goes back to ancient times.

In ancient Rome, the nobility always wore caged outerwear, and in Japan, samurai dressed in plaid kimonos. Moreover, relatively recently, archaeologists have discovered a mummy dressed in a checkered shroud.
