"Buffalo plaid originated from none other than Woolrich Woolen Mills. The company began producing the Buffalo Check shirt around 1850, which means we've been rocking this plaid for over 150 years. ... Legend has it that Woolrich's designer of the distinctive style owned a herd of buffalo and that's how it got its name" - The Internet
Which if you ask me makes no sense, because buffaloes and red and black checkered boxes have nothing in common. Unless buffaloes are really good at playing checkers and we just don't know it...But I digress because the buffalo check kimono is a holiday print kimono we clearly had to make. When you wear this red and black checkered kimono it just exudes the confident message, "King me, baby."
