As for the name of the pattern the main distinguishing characteristic of mens houndstooth coats when compared with the checked coats is that the former has jagged edges that are caused by the tangent twill lines which flare out from the sides. The jagged edges on the squares make it seem like the back teeth of the dogs and hence the name. Mens houndstooth coats are one of the most popular choices when it comes to patterned coats.

Houndstooth pattern is known to be one of the most popular patterns in menswear history for a long time. The houndstooth pattern first came into use in the 1800s and the place of its origin was Scotland. It was famously known as the Shepherd's check or Dogtooth at that time and was used mostly as an outerwear for the sheepherders. Today the houndstooth pattern has become more universal and even has surpassed the clothing industry. In the start of the 1900s the English came to vacation in the Scottish Highlands and even bought estates there. At that time Scottish clans were in existence and the patterns were borrowed from the sheepherders and was used in creation of the tartan designs. The Houndstooth pattern was more of a neutral designs for the Scotlanders and were not restricted to a certain clan.

By the mid 1930s the houndstooth patterned clothes were seen to be the indication of wealth. This was because of the fact that the then Prince of Wales, Edward the VII wore the pattern almost everyday. The tailoring houses worked with the Royal tailors to produce the houndstooth suits that the Prince greatly favored.

When the British produced their houndstooth clothing they would usually weave the design on the garments but this was not the case with Dior. Dior and also the other brands like Louis Vuitton and Chanel which later adopted the style simply opted to print the houndstooth pattern on the garments.
