WEARING YOUR TARTAN KILT

***********************************************************
***********************************************************
Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

For the best effect, please be sure to watch, in "FULL SCREEN" mode, these instructive video recordings.



I purchased my kilt here in the United States of America, from J. Higgins, Ltd. as import duties from Scotland can greatly increase the original purchase price.

Here I am, wearing my brand new Clan Henderson kilt for the very first time, while attending a National Tartan Day celebration in Alexandria, Virginia!



For anyone who is not part of a Scottish clan, but would still like to wear a tartan kilt, there ARE officially approved tartan designs for almost anyone!

For instance, there is a national tartan for the United States of America, and several other nations, including - - - the good ol' CONFEDERATE States of America!!!

There is a military tartan for the United States Army, as well as each of the other branches of America's military services, and there are tartan kilts for police and firefighters.

A kilt is ideal for wear at formal occasions, celebrations, parades, and patriotic events.

Because kilt outfits can be expensive, the most economical and practical all-purpose outfit is the Argyll jacket with a semi-formal sporran.

As for myself, I choose to wear ordinary street shoes instead of the more traditional Ghillies.

When attired in the Highland kilt, it is customary for military veterans to wear their decorations on their jacket.

After all, by tradition, each Highland clan is its own military unit, and the tartan kilt has ever been a military uniform worn by male warriors of the clan.

So, don't be forgetting your sword!

Thank you.
