Menswear Trend Bold Argyle

Burberry Menswear argyle print SS22

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but where does that leave argyle? This classic Scottish diamond pattern beloved of golfers is seeing a style renaissance. This bold and often colour print is great way for men to add both colour and pattern to their spring wardrobes. 

The argyle pattern derives from the tartan of Clan Campbell of Argyll in western Scotland. The 11th Duke of Argyll was recently played by Paul Bettany as a volatile aristocrat in the BBC drama, A Very British Scandal. He was even seen unhappily seen advertising argyle socks to pay the castle bills.

Here are TheChicGeek's handpicked argyle pieces of the season with a smattering of vintage inspiration:

Trend - Bright Tartan

Timothee Chalamet in Prada GQ tartan coatEverybody loves tartan, well, they should do. The brighter the better in our books.

Bright tartans are nothing new, historically, the Victorians loved going bold with their family checks. Regardless of your clan, think strong clashing colours, especially in your outerwear and accessories.

And, you can always wear more than one at a time, just look at the Johnstons of Elgin 'Clash of the Clans' scarf below. The Gloverall Lochcarron coat is womenswear, but would fit and look good on anybody. Check it all out.

Luke Edward Hall for Gant double breasted corduroy jacket

He has previously done collections/collaborations with John Smedley, Kurt Geiger, Rowing Blazers, Habitat, Anthropologie, Lucy Folk, Richard Ginori, Stubbs & Wootton, and now GANT is added to the list. The man in question is Luke Edward Hall, a modern day Hockney with the eye for colour to match.

When GANT’s current Global Artistic Director, Christopher Bastin, return last year, the brand was due some quirky direction. I’ve always been a fan of what he did at the now defunct GANT Rugger brand.

"This collection takes its inspiration from my home in the English countryside, and how I spend weekends there with friends. From jumpers and tweed coats for stalking through fields to 1970s-inspired velvet suits and silk shirts for candlelit dinners, it’s ruggedly elegant and very English.” says Edward Hall.

Luke Edward Hall for Gant double breasted corduroy jacketHe does the same thing for everybody, but that’s okay, because I like it. It’s the same eclectic rift as Gucci.

The standout piece is this cosy corduroy DB in rich reddy brown with brass buttons. It’s a shame they didn’t include one of Luke Edward Hall’s classical heads as pictured. They could have made it detachable. That aside, this is a classic and lifetime wearable piece.

Just add a pink dahlia!
