An even check or plaid with fine lines in two, sometimes three colors, tattersall is now mainly seen in shirt weight fabrics of cotton in a plain weave.

Originally the pattern was woven of wool in a twill weave, and named for a renowned horse auction house in London where horse blankets featured this check.

Uses: Wool used for coats, jackets and suits; cotton for shirts
