# 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.
