8 January - Argyle Day
Argyle is derived from the 17th century tartan of Clan Campbell of Argyll in western Scotland. Such is the origin of the funky kilts and Scottish Highlander socks.
During the early twentieth century Pringle introduced the intarsia design that became its signature 'Argyle' pattern. It was adopted by the Duke of Windsor and became immediately popular with the fashionable set of the 1920s.
During the 1940s and 50s, after World War II, the Argyle pattern once again grew in popularity. Beginning in England, the craze spread across the pond to the US, where girls learning to knit would create Argyle patterned socks for the boys they were sweet on.
