Yesterday I attended the Western Mass. highland games in Greenfield, MA. It was a perfect day save for the occasional strong gust that challenged even the heaviest kilt pin. (I'll post some pics of the games later in another thread.)
As the thread title states I'm wearing Rose modern hunting. It's an 8yd., 16oz. tank by Lochassynt:
I should be wearing a new Rkilts braided leather sporran strap but the idiots at the postal service lost it somewhere between Roberts shop and my home. Robert was nice enough to ship me out another one right away but it hasn't gotten to me yet. Let's hope this one makes it.
The pleat shot didn't come out great because of the wind:
I wasn't planning to buy anything more than a pair of hose but I found a beautiful Lochcarron argyle jacket that fit me perfectly. The vendor was Bernard McGrath of Heather And Thistle from Keene, NH. http://www.heatherandthistle.com I'm specifically mentioning him because he was a great guy who gave me an awesome deal on the jacket. Plus, he immediately recognized my tartan and told me details about clan Rose that I didn't even know.
...and the gratuitous Hamish shot:
I'm also throwing in a shot of my pictish boar tattoo just 'cause I think it goes well with my kilt:
