Rte. 202. (860) 482-7260. American design born of comfort time-tested classics in the Scottish tradition uniquely American and distinctly BraeVal. Form, Function & Style for the Sporting Adventurer in the field or on the town. Our symbol is derived from the Rob Roy tartan of Clan MacGregor. It was brought to America in the late 1800's by my great uncle Big Jock McCluskey who came from the crags and BraeVal of Scotland. Legend has it that Native Americans had never seen cloth dyed a brighter red, and believed it was made from the blood of McCluskey prey and enemies. Like many things that crossed the Atlantic, the tartan received a new name and became uniquely American and distinctly BraeVal - Buffalo Plaid was born.
