A trademark of the legendary Sherlock Holmes, houndstooth fabric was first worn by shepherds in the 1800s and eventually made chic by high fashion and Hollywood in the 1950s. It remains popular to this day. Sherlock injects this utilitarian classic with a touch of glamour through structure, color and pattern.
