Technically this is a variant of the Duchess of Urquhart's plaid she created for her ghillies. Prince Edward popularized the pattern for sporting use and in fact there is a POW of black,cream,red and brown he alone could wear by clan patent.
Aside from such details this is a well known but very versatile pattern . It's a every man should wear, and much more comfortable than the modern sniper ghillie suit. I believe the duchess' men could sneak up on one quiete handlily.
