It’s actually more the other way around. Tartan is the correct name for that type of pattern. Americans simplified and changed it. This particular pattern is tartan.
I wish they would have released the red tied waist Tartan. I could have used it. Along with other long sleeved tartan shirts like the tied ones. I want the Teal long sleeved ones and Yellow.
Overall, the flannels/tartans are pretty neat.
I may not be as well-versed in fashion and cultural history but I think Episode had good intentions in releasing some items which are associated with prior plaid clothing. They are a company based in California, US, of course they would portray ‘diverse’ fashions, albeit in a limited point of view. Everyone to some extent cannot be aware of every cultural contribution in the world, coming from a Chinese Singaporean.
Tartan has an impeccable history both in Europe and the US, expressing rebellion and national pride especially in the former. Here are some articles I found which seems interesting:
That being said, more traditional Scottish clothing as well as lesser-known yet prominent European/Asian ones would be appreciated. Literally the other ‘Scottish’ item of clothing I can think of from Episode is the Ink ‘Touch of Scotland’.
While I completely agree with what you’re saying, I feel the need to point out that what they’re trying to mimic is a flannel shirt. I live in Canada and we just call them flannels or flannel shirts.
Anyways, I hope the corresponding shirts would come soon too, maybe with some extra winter pyjama sets!

I was wondering the same thing fighting over a title for a piece of clothing. Smh disappointing to me
(Since I can call this whatever I want) I really do love these plaid flannels. They’re going to be on my story alot since it’s perfect for the theme. They look so cute I just love them.
Yeah, I was so excited about flannels being added. I’ve been begging episode for flannels and loose clothing forever. They’re finally getting into it!
I’m a big fan of loose clothing it look so cute with the LL style in my opinion. I didn’t notice the flannels till I was looking through the outfits a few days ago and I immediately fell in love with it.
Also the designs are super nice, I’m particularly fond of the teal
I figured they would, can’t bring up the term ‘cultural appropriation’ here, it’s a buzz word >.<
I’m cool, by the way. tbh I wish they’d released the red tied up shirt. If I’ve any actual complaint it’s not cultural nonsense it’s that they already have a red shirt of that design, but they didn’t release the tied one
Ik I love themm
Sadly I had to scroll for quite a time looking for a comment about someone’s opinion and not all of the other things happening
Riight? I love flannals bc they are soo cute. They should add buttoned up ones or even just a regular one as a “jacket”
@blissful.edits Ik me to! I accidentally went on clothing one day and found them they are soo cute!
@ChaoticDeluge I’m just telling u now, lmao I didn’t flag any of whatever u said
I’m sorry about that
what do you have to be sorry about?
I dunno tbh
Anyways which one is your favorite?
I have to say either the black one or the dark blue one. And not to throw shade to episode but the green one looks light blue,
I love the dark blue one
