    Just ordered my first USA Kilts kilt!

    Ten years ago I bought my last kilt, an Isle Of Skye, and it's been my go-to kilt ever since.

    With the recent discovery of Stewart ancestry a hankering for a Stewart kilt has been growing.

    Finally today I put in my order with USA Kilts! I exchanged some messages with Rocky, got the details sorted; now the wait begins.

    I went with the 5 yard kilt.

    The fabric is the 16oz tweed tartan from Marton Mills in Hunting Stewart Weathered. I've never had a weathered tartan kilt and I'm really looking forward to it.

    Here's what the fabric looks like. I love the subtle and muted appearance.

    Gorgeous, Richard! I like the muted tones in that too! Can't wait to see your pix when it comes through, and Rocky always delights.

    Look's great, I've been intrigued by the Tweed Tartans also. Can't wait to see and read your review.

    Thanks! Yes it will be!

    A small wardrobe it is, and in the last week it shrank even more!

    I just sold on Ebay a kilt, several kilt jackets, several sporrans, brooches, crossbelts, a feather bonnet, a sgian, a dirk, all the military-style things I haven't worn in ages.

    That has left me with a nice war chest to get things that will be worn! And first on the list was a Stewart kilt.

    Other hankerings have been for brown ghillies, and check tweed. We shall see.
