# Where does the Houndstooth pattern come from?
Houndstooth was created in Scotland in the 1880s. It involves weaving black and white yarns together and was originally used to make warm clothing for shepherds.
# How should I wear Houndstooth socks?
Revived by the house of Dior, the Houndstooth pattern has now become a timeless classic! For socks and knee-highs, we recommend wearing this pattern but avoid contrasting it with other patterns! If you prefer a more understated look, combine this pattern with a more neutral and plain suit. On the other hand, you might want to show off your shoes with a Houndstooth pattern with colours which contrast with the rest of your outfit.
