    As you know, British regiments have always been tribal with jealously guarded traditions and dress minutiae which may pass-by the casual observer. Scottish regiments are even more tribal and Highland regiments most tribal of all.

    That said, do you know the special regimental traditional detail found on the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders glengarry ? (Possibly too the Calgary Highlanders, Byron Scottish etc)

    ...... The answer is ........ the bottom 2 rows of dice overlapped very slightly, so if holding their glengarry horizontally and looking along the hat, you could see a "thin red line" effect.

    Cunning stuff !!

    I wonder if it's possible to "mold" the glen to have teh slightly arched shape? I know soaking a balmoral and putting it on and forcing it to mold to your head in the shape you want has been done but could the same concept be done on a glen?

    I think it could only be done if you took the "guts" out ie the stiff inter-liner between the woollen outer shell and the inner lining. But it might lose its shape when shrunk.
