    Question about a USAK tartan

    Quick question about The USAK Murray tartan. Is it really as light colored as it appears in the pics on the website? It looks a bit like Murray of Atholl Ancient rather than a modern tartan. Don't get me wrong, I love the tones on the website and fully intend to order a semi-trad as soon as my budget allows.

    Ask for a swatch

    The best thing to do is contact Rocky and Kelly and ask for a swatch of the fabric. It is a service they provide at a nominal cost.

That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it." anon

    As said before, send a self addressed stamped envelope to Rocky for a swatch.

    When I was looking at the Douglas Modern Tartan, it looked lighter in the photo...but once I requested a swatch and recieved it, it was actually very nice and dark. The flash on the camera "lightens" it up.

    You can gladly send me a SASE for a swatch of the fabric.

    I WILL say though, that it IS the "Murray of Atholl Ancient". It's NOT the modern tartan (don't think we say it is MODERN on the site anywhere, but I could have mistakenly done that).

    Hope this info helps!

    That helps a lot. I prefer Murray Ancient to the Modern. It has more character. I will definitely be ordering a semi-trad now.
