Plaidguy has arrived. With him, we celebrate all things plaid. If you, like us, crave plaid’s infinite patterns, colors and possibilities – for everything from furniture, to fashion, to technology accessories – welcome home.


When you’re in the mood for plaid, think The Plaidguy. Bookmark him, and come browse and shop when you’re feeling traditional, rebellious, colorful, or all highland-misty – in other words, when you’re in a plaid kind of mood.


Plaidguy was created by our passion for the Adirondack region, while celebrating creative expression. As a fourth generation Adirondack family, our roots run deep from the mountains, to the lakes, and ski slopes.


Although our roots mostly come from the Adirondacks, we are lucky enough to call many places throughout the United States our home, including northern California and New York City. Wherever you are from… show your spirit, creativity, and individual expression while creating lifelong memories and sporting your favorite Plaidguy pattern.
