Abstract: An arrangement of hyperplanes in $ {\mathbb{E}^d}$ is a "plaid" provided its hyperplanes form no multiple flats of intersection and lie in parallel families that are in general position. We develop some geometrically natural formulas for the number of $ r$-faces that are formed by such an arrangement.
