Pringle of Scotland has had an enduring love affair with the Argyle pattern since first developing it in the 1930’s. The iconic diamond pattern was invented in Hawick by turning the knitting machine patterns 90 degrees creating the unique design. The Duke of Windsor was one of the first wearers.
If the words “golfing attire” conjure up images of lush green fairways, socks pulled up high, and diamond pattern jumpers – you’re on the right track. Golf originated in Scotland and argyle attire has become an essential element of on course fashion. In the 1980’s, the vivid colour combinations created by the argyle pattern became fashionable on the catwalk, and our argyle diamonds shined once more. The bolder and brighter the better!
Today, we continue to develop the Argyle pattern for current connoisseurs – whether on the Golf course or on the Street. Vintage styles for women made modern, and always with a Pringle of Scotland twist. More than just a pattern, the Argyle is an icon.
