    Here is what I wore for Easter service

    A while back I was going to have you decide by vote what I should wear for Easter. Kids came home, things got busy, and it got too late last night after company so I didn't have time to post any pictures. I couldn't find the right size ribbon for the flashes, so had to go a few shades darker. The exact color ribbon was too narrow.

    I had this kilt (UK Mocker) made smaller in the waist thinking that would help the length, but I still think it needs shortning. Actually, my wife said that she could see my knees from a distance, just not close like in the picture. We decided I didn't have any vests that matched, and so went with the white shirt, which my wife thought wouldn't work, but I guess it did.

    No comments from either church service today, sun rise at 6:30 a.m. and our regular service at 10:30. I was a reader and wanted to be dressed up more.

    DALE.

    You look very nice. Good matching hose w/shirt. The colors in the tie go well with the kilt and (if I see right), the flashes are brown, which also coordinates the outfit. Yes, you could stand to be an inch or so shorter in the kilt, but it's not bad. A nice, clean, basic outfit for any "dress casual" occasion. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Happy Eater!

    You can wear your hose less high....just double-fold the top...will look even better when we see some leg

    I did the three fingers below the knee cap, I think it is the angle of the camera. Also, the hose are folded down, and then up, as that was the size of the dsign on the hose. But thanks!

    DALE.

    what kind of buckle are you wearing? It may be my monitor, but it looks like is has some coloring on it. Can we get a closeup of the buckle?

    Belt Buckle

    I was wondering if anyone would notice. I had that belt buckle, see images below, from the 1960's when low rise pants first came out and everyone had wide belts. The price even shows $3.00 and I remember debating at the time if I wanted to spend THAT much on it. ha ha

    I was hoping it would fit on my 2" kilt belt which I had custom made from these people, who are making belts for the UK co. contact@pelicanpointtrading.com if you want a special belt made.

    I just bent the wire holder on the back of the buckle and it fit my belt which has screw rivets so buckles can be changed. This buckle is one that hooks INTO a hole in the belt and doesn't have the pokey thing that goes through a belt hole. I am sure it has a name.

    I hope to get some other belt buckles from http://www.buckleshop.com They said they should have some kilt buckles soon. Always ask if they fit your size belt, as looks and dimensions are deceiving.
