With their roots in the Scottish Borders, Lyle have always championed Scottish style and over the last few season’s they have introduced the newly created Lyle & Scott tartan into their collection. Drawing inspiration from the age old Scott tartan and the colours of Hawick, the town where the brand hails from this classic styled plaid is available in a number of colourways and Lyle and Scott focus on some of the strongest tones to brighten their collection.
