my wedding photo
The last time I sent a blog I was contemplating purchasing a new kilt, this I did, since then I have remarried so it has had three outings already.
This is an ancient Mckenzie, but it has more blue than my old kilt. I now have to order a day jacket because one is a bit overdressed wearing evening wear during the day.
In Finland one gets sideways looks, they are curious but will not say anything as they are mostly shy, but it does break the ice quickly.
Today the first winter snow has arrived so I do not think I will be wearing my kilt outdoors for a while.
I used to wear it whilst working as a shepherd and it was easy to wear, but in Scotland with all the rain it would take one day to wear and two-three days to dry out.
I was working in the southwest of Scotland and I had more comments from the locals than anywhere else.
I saw very few people there wearing kilts.
Hope you enjoy my comments, wear a kilt as often as possible and do not give a toss what people think or say, they are mostly jealous anyway.
