FabSugar have an article describing the fashion term argyle:
“Diamond shapes in colorful patterns on a solid background. Primarily used in sweaters and socks. Original pattern of the Clan Campbell, of Argyll in western Scotland. Often associated with a polished and classic style of dressing.”
The best known use of the argyle pattern in street fashion is Russell Simmons’ latest venture, Argyle Culture.
