Doddie'5 Tartan

About the Doddie'5 Tartan

Doddie’5 Tartan has been designed to support the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, raising funds to aid research into Motor Neurone Disease. The blue and white within the tartan are to represent the colours of Scotland, Doddie’s Home Nation and The black and yellow within the tartan represent Melrose RFC, the first amateur senior team that Doddie played for, with black and white for Newcastle Falcons.

Our association with the legend that is Doddie Weir is a long and personal one stretching far back beyond us making the tartan suits he is so famous for. The idea of a “Doddie tartan” has been one mooted for several years and our in-house designer Emily was delighted when Doddie finally said “Let’s do it” and the serious business of colour and sett design could begin. Tartans traditionally have 5 colours but Doddie is a man of his own mind and 4 tartans it was to be. We love the resulting combinations of colour and I am sure you will agree they are a great representation of Doddie’s positive attitude and optimism as our favourite rugby hero makes his mark in the world of tartan design and raises much needed funds to find a cure for MND.
