Plaid makes its annual comeback when cold weather arrives. Cozy wool skirts and coats bring warmth and cheer to the winter season. Cleveland’s Steve Cagliostro Jr. even designed his own wool jacket for Christmas Day while working for the menswear brand Joseph & Feiss. Many American families carry on a tradition of pulling out the same garment each year at holiday time. For some, the festivities provide an excuse to wear a vibrant pattern such as Chisholm Halle’s Buchanan tartan pants. Others use holiday parties as an excuse to wear something new, such as this 1976 plaid jumpsuit.
