Scottish Camo from the 18th Century
What: The Ludlow fielding suit in Black Watch Harris Tweed wool.
The story: Since 1739, the Black Watch, an elite infantry battalion of the Royal Regiment of Scotland, has claimed this unique Scottish tartan as its own. The pattern may have first been designed to blend into the night, but today there’s little chance of it going unnoticed, especially when it’s found on a slim Ludlow suit cut from Harris Tweed wool. Spun by local artisans on Scotland’s Outer Hebrides islands, Harris Tweed wool is the final word in Scottish fabrics and a fine choice to battle freezing walks to work this winter.
