    Seeking a Tartan Pattern

    Hey Everyone,

    My name is Brandon and I am seeking a Tartan pattern. I have attached a copy here. I had a flannel shirt that I loved (Currently it keeps my Pipes wrapped up) and if I could find out what Tartan it is, I will certainly get a kilt and accessories with it. Currently I have one kilt maker looking for it. The closest that I have seen is Ancient MacLean of Duart and Lindsay. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If this is not the right location for this message please direct me where I can go. Thank you.
    Sincerely,
    Brandon

    Tartan Finder

    House of Tartan has a way to search by the colors and pattern in a tartan.
    https://www.houseoftartan.co.uk/house/reverse.asp

    But it's also possible that the flannel shirt won't exactly match any registered tartan. You may have to search for a close match instead.

    Good luck.

    This is a typical 'fashion tartan' of the type produced in many places, not just the UK. Given that is is from a shirt it was probably made for the manufacturer. It is not a Scottish clan/family tartan.

    Hi Brandon

    Ancient MacLean is maybe more orangey than your sample and Lindsey is quite dark, burgundy and green - although maybe a weathered or ancient version would be closer to the purple/pink hues in you photo (assuming that's not down to my laptop settings).

    A couple of other options that might match these tones - if that's what you are after rather than the matching the set - are Ancient Hunting MacGregor, which is a much brighter purple than Lindsey, although it also has a lot of green in it, and Weathered MacFarlane, which has a pinkish cast to it and the other colours are fairly muted.

    There aren't any pink dance tartans that also have red like that, though (I'm actually trying to think of any that have pink and red at all). Any dance tartan is going to be a dress tartan, as that's what has been in style for some time now. If you wanted to replace the pink or red with white, you'd have a better chance of getting close with a dance tartan, but then it wouldn't be the same as the one you like!

    The MacNab tartan, standard clan and the so called chief's sett, were originally woven in scarlet and rose (red and pink). So much nicer than the modern versions.
