Legend has it this distinctive Scottish pattern, known for centuries as Rob Roy,
was dubbed "Buffalo Check Plaid" by our designer (circa 1850) in honor of the small herd
of buffalo he owned here in central Pennsylvania. By the late 1800s, American buffalo
hunters commonly wore the now-famous Woolrich Buffalo Check Shirt. Today, people the world
over associate Woolrich with this iconic pattern even though
it is used by many companies in many different ways… and we take that as a compliment.
