Happy Argyle Day 2020

Happy Argyle Day. Its kind of a big thing with Dawn if you hadn't noticed. She has been sporting the vibrant argyle vests for years and today it is officially ARGYLE DAY so who better than Dawn Walton & Associates to wish you a very happy argyle day!

The argyle pattern comes from the tartan of Clan Campbell, which originated in Argyll in western Scotland. While this pattern was used by members of Clan Campbell for kilts and plaids, the argyle pattern has been worn in the form of patterned socks by various clans in Scotland from the 17th century.
