Originally worn as a symbol of the wearer’s clan, tartan used to signify the life of the gentry and the wearer’s long and noble heritage. It was adopted into streetwear a couple of centuries later for very different reasons: a metaphorical two fingers to the establishment. Instantly recognisable, look more closely and you find strands of tartan woven throughout key subcultures past and present – from the flared trousers of Bowie, to the grungy shirts of Cobain – its design is timeless.
