vogue : tartan

Since being at St. Andrews, I will admit that I haven’t really had much luck meeting too many Scottish people. There are two in my course, and Jack in particular, has been good with explaining and sharing all things Scottish culture and heritage to me. 
One thing he shared with me was the importance of the tartan and it’s identity. His scarf was his grandfather’s [from his mothers side] whose last name was Anderson, which the tartan represents. It’s a symbol of identity, pride and prestige in each family. I’ve found Jack’s outfit to be absolutely perfect on this day as it married with the colors of his tartan that I had to share. I know this is completely different from our normal fashion posts, but a little change doesn’t hurt. Right?
Plus, who would complain about a Scotsman?

    oooh hello Jack!

    haha :) technically Jon's family has a tartan because his dad's family is Scottish all the way back – this has inspired me to ask about it at Christmas!

    Jack may need to leave graduate school and pursue a career in modeling. A natural!

    Anyone who dares to complain about a handsome and stylish Scotsman should leave immediately and leave him to the rest of us!

    Never would have guessed he wasn't a professional model! Those blue eyes come out of nowhere.

    Such a dapper Scottish gent! My only experience with a true Scot was a lovely older artist whose work we carried in our gallery. He was straight out of a novel, tweed coat, cane, hankerchief and all. I have a tartan hat my grandmother purchased in Scotland.. may need to pull it out!
