It's hard to say how much of the history of the buffalo plaid is true and how much is legend.What is known is that the pattern is an iconic one that has withstood the test of time. Although the name Buffalo plaid sounds like an of American origin, the buffalo plaid is actually the MacGregor Red and Black pattern.
In Scotland, the pattern is associated with the folk hero Rob Roy MacGregor, and the pattern there is often referred to simply as the Rob Roy. According to legend and the Scottish Tartan Authority, the pattern was brought over to the U. In the 1800's by Jock McCluskey, a descendent of Rob Roy.
Jock was a character who sympathized with the native people and befriended folks from many tribes as he worked as a trader, offering finished goods for buffalo pelts and other items. According to stories, the Native Americans with whom he worked prized the heavy Scottish blankets in the MacGregor Red and Black, which they believed got its red color from a sorcerer's hex, a dye distilled from the spirit blood and ghostly souls of McCluskey's prey and enemies. And so was said to bring good luck in battle.
According to legend, the Native Americans couldn't pronounce the Scottish Gaelic word for blanket, pladger, and instead referred to the blankets as plaids. Eventually, the buffalo plaid made its way up to the northeast to the Woolrich Woolen Mill where their buffalo plaid shirts became an immediate hit.
