Kilts & Tartan Made Easy

$0.00

An expert insider’s frank views and simple tips. Lots of history, advice, and more.


FOREWARD

If you’re thinking of wearing your first kilt (or already own one, and want to learn more) how daunting it can feel. But don’t give up. You’ll be so glad you did. Few things you ever own will give you more pleasure than an authentic kilt, whether for formal wear or fashion. This short handbook will help you make sense of at least the basic questions. I hope to inform, and even entertain. It’s my own views. But it should cover most of what you need to know. The work is my personal free gift which I hope you’ll find helpful. If you want to look right at an occasion, like a wedding or formal dinner, you’ll find advice here. Otherwise, never let anyone tell you that you’re wearing it wrong. Remember, a kilt is not a uniform — it should express your personality and be a thing of joy, not an object of duty. It will make you many new friends and admirers. There are no rules, only views. It’s just a piece of clothing. What matters is to wear yours with pride. In this second edition, I have added and improved throughout, based on generous early feedback. Please do tell me still if you think anything is missing, inadequate, or just plain wrong. I intend this to be a work-in-progress. I have also changed the title to reflect the way the document’s scope has expanded since first started. I am unashamedly proud of my Scottish ancestry, and this text is written through the eyes of a Scot. But most applies too for the sons and daughters of Ireland, Wales, and other Celtic nations… or those who might wish to be, even just a little. We’re a friendly and inclusive folk. I hope you’ll join us, wherever you are. You may now look forward to enjoying your kilt!
