    Cool wasnt sure where to put this .... but

    received my new casual Ferguson Modern kilt , navy hose and red flashes from USA Kilts today ... admittedly I'm not the most photogenic sort .
    Everything seems to fit well and it arrived in plenty of time for a few test drives in the heat here in Illinois before I goto the heat in California

    I think the navy hose are a bit too dark ... but they may grow on me
    House of Cheviat hose should be here end of next week

    Very nice and relaxed looking, I do like the polo/golf shirt with a kilt when the temps climb above 80F.

    I'm quite partial to the more casual style of dress. Looking good!

    Looks good. Personally I don't wear flashes or a formal kilt belt when casually (polo shirt) dressed. I did put on a formal belt for the Clan Derby event, because it seemed from their Facebook page that that was part of their look, but drew the line at boots and scrunched up socks on a warm (in UK terms) day.
    If you are going to do it, do it in a kilt!

    Sir,

    I have ordered a Ferguson modern kilt too (distant ancestor) - it should arrive in the next 6-8 weeks. I have not seen one worn as yet. In my tie, the red shows up more, as it takes up a higher proportion of the tie than it does on the area of a kilt apron. It looks good! Mine is being made in Brisbane Australia out of 16Oz Lochcarron.

    Cool awesome

    Welcome kilted kousin from downunder ... I have been thinking alot about our clan afilliates in Australia , Holland and New Zealand since the mothballing of the Society in Scotland but there has been no formal talks nor have we been approached officially to join together under CFSNA here . Time will tell . My MacGregor and MacDuff 16oz wool is from House of Edgar , but I reserve that for formal occasions & cooler weather . The casual kilt in the pics is from USA kilts , and its way more comfortable in 80F plus weather . I have 2 more kilts on my to do list and that would be a casual style in Ancient Ferguson , and an XMARK tartan . But that may have to waait untill Xmess unless some vendors have my precise size at the Pleasanton California Games later this week .

    As far as I know, the only Australian presence for any kind of Clan society in Australia is the facebook group, which is affiliated with CFSNA.

    I don't have the name, as I am descended from the first Scot in my family to set foot in Australia, Elizabeth Ferguson (my father's mother's father's mother's mother's mother), born 1814 in Campbeltown Argyll, convicted of house-breaking and transported to Van Diemens Land (now Tasmania) in 1835. She is my 4x great grandmother. There are other Scots of more recent heritage in my line (the Forrests of Aberdeen and Leith/Edinburgh, who are descended maternally from Arthur Millar, non-juring Bishop of Edinburgh in 1727, who was fined 20 pounds in 1716 for failing to pray for King George I), but they have had their day in the sun. I prefer to honour the 18 year-old dauther of David Ferguson and Elizabeth McLean, the transported convict who, after she married on ticket-of-leave, raised her four surviving children after her husband (my 4x gg) was murdered.

    It sort of encapsulates the Australian story, of low-born people made good, whereas the Forrest line has come a long way down from Scots-Jamaican sugar barons, navy heroes, and famous artists, to just ordinary citizens.
