British Tattersall Shirt
First seen on blankets at Tattersall’s Horse Market in London (“Old Tatt”) around 1766, where the Duke of Kingston and Prince of Wales auctioned off their horses.
Didn’t take long for the check pattern to find its way onto other things, giving stripes, plaids, tartans and ginghams a run for their money.
Even today, the race is neck and neck.
