    My 1st hand made kilt

    Even though I made this kilt quite a few years ago I have only recently started to wear it regularly. I was given the tartan by a good friend of mine in NZ that purchased a bulk lot of Jacobite period kilts, jackets and tartan from the BBC when they finished filming the movie kidnapped in NZ several years ago. It's a nice 100% wool tartan and when I made it I was a bit bigger than now , but with a kilt belt it stays on even though the straps are loose. Yesterday on my day off my future wife & I went out for lunch and a friend took the photo below. The tweed jacket was purchased cheaply from a used clothing store and I altered the bottom to turn it into a kilt jacket , which is fantastic for the winter. Later on I will get more photos of the kilt so you can see the pleats etc.

    You both look great. The kilt is a lovely tartan, and you did a nice job on the jacket. I`m beginning to think you must be the best dressed kilty in Japan!

    Very smart indeed. Thank you for sharing this with no need to feel embarrassed over the delay in getting a photo. (the rabble knows I suffer from that a lot). Looking forward to seeing more. Nice job and nice job pulling the whole outfit together.
