Registration notes: George Ferguson, Architect and Past President of the Royal Institute of British Architects is well known for his penchant for red trousers, which he even wears with black tie and at other formal occasions. Having been banned for wearing his evening red trousers at a formal occasion in his home city of Bristol he decided to design and register a variation of Ferguson Tartan made entirely of red threads to thwart any such future restrictive decree. He will be wearing new trousers made from the cloth at his CBE investiture at Windsor Castle on 13th April 2010. He wishes to make it available to other members, family or friends of the Fergusons who may want to wear a variation on the traditional blue/green/red/white versions.
