    MacDuck Tartan

    I didn't want to highjack Ron's other thread, so I decided to start a new one dedicated to the MacDuck tartan.

    It seems that Disney actually has registered the tartan with the Tartans Authority.

    Info

    Here's the same tartan, except from the The Tartan Store plus one variant:





    I suppose the yellow one from the Tartan Store might be considered the Dress Tartan, the green one, the Hunting Tartan, and the one from the Authority might be the Ancient Dress Tartan for the MacDucks.

    Would this be one that could be worn by anyone? Or do I have to swear my allegiance to Scrooge?

    They're all to be found, and more over HERE

    No allegiance will be required. However, you will have to wear big yellow shoes and walk like a duck when wearing this tartan. ;)

    The STA's notes on this one indicate it was used by Disney in WWII to help sales of war bonds. I think the brown version was an early prototype. The notes in the Scottish Tartans Society's old software call the yellow tartan the "final version."

    As to who could wear it, I suppose anyone, although as a corporate tartan owned by Disney, one should get their permission before producing it, so actually obtaining it might be a problem.

    Kilt Store sells the green one as a kilt (I just checked). So it would seem to me it shouldn't be too hard to find. I would imagine other kilt suppliers who have a wide variety could get it.

    Funny, I wouldn't have imagined it was still in production. That's interesting... well, I guess if anyone wants it, it's there!

    The Tartan Store has the green one available in 13oz and 16oz, and it says that the yellow one is special order.

    I kind of like the one in the "ancient" colors though.
