Argyle Day is observed next on Monday, January 8th, 2024 (33 days from today).
Argyle - you may think of socks and sweaters when you hear the name argyle, but there is no reason to limit its use to such types when there is a wide variety of argyle designs. The argyle pattern is made of diamonds or rhombuses, with overlapping motifs often containing an overlay of interwoven diagonal lines over the solid diamonds.
You've seen it on the tartan faucet that Scots wear by the kilo, on old golf outfits and on countless pairs of socks. We must say that this model has become more widely used in recent years, everything from leggings to kinesiology tape.
History of Argyle Day
The argyle pattern originates from Clan Campbell's tartan, which originated in Argyll in the west of Scotland. While this pattern was used by members of Clan Campbell for trousers and plaids, the argyle motif has been worn by various clans in Scotland since the 17th century.
After World War I, the pattern became popular first in England and then in the United States because of its association with the Duke of Windsor. The duke used an argyle motif for his golf attire, incorporating it for both the jersey as well as the long socks commonly used as part of golf wear during the period. Later, other golf enthusiasts have adopted argyle. Today it is known "preppy".
The One Argyle Day celebration seems to be the brainchild of Richard Fletcher, but that particular Argyle Day doesn't fall on the same day that the holiday appears to be celebrated in other rings. In other words, some people think argyle is amazing (which we don't argue with) and so we have Argyle Day.
However, there is no official date on which all events occur, so this remains a mystery as to its origins. Therefore, it is difficult to know if Argyle Day is the same holiday as National Day. So instead, we will tell you that you should wear ao dai in celebration without forcing you to choose a day of the year. Unfortunately, you can observe every Argyle Day you pass.
How to celebrate Argyle Day
Argyle has never really left the fashion world. Whether an outfit embellishes a wardrobe or adds charm to a home, argyle delivers classic style. Share your favorite argyle pattern.

Argyle goes on your feet, around your neck, or even on your fingernails.
Hold a contest to see who is the best among you. From head to toe, we're sure someone loves their shirt more than anyone else.
