    Off to Work Kilted

    Playing with my new digital camera. Set it up on a tripod and took pics of what I wore to work the last two weeks. Certainly no where in Ham's league but not bad for the dusty canyonlands of Arizona.

    They're on p 6 of my gallery if you dare.

    The red Ecuadorian shirt with red sox is the outfit that drew the "Halloween was yesterday" comment.

    All great pics Ron. Below is what I wore to work yesterday. Ladies gave me style points for the flashes, semi-trad, and belt, but deducted for the Disney shirt!

    Hey KCW,

    Good look...Disney or no...

    I think you're right...ladies at work are one of the best fashion boards there is...they're not shy about compliments or suggestions for improvement... Just gotta watch for their personal biases.

    Ron, you're comparing ... well, not apples and oranges, but different types of apples. True, Hamish pretty much covers British business formal and non-business casual, but for working/outdoor wear in an UK style I would look at Graham's gallery, not Hamish's. It looks to me like you may end up the reference for American outdoors and American business casual.

    And as for the shirt - I'm more of an subdued/earthtones sort of guy, and even I like it! Makes me wish my one Hawaiian shirt went with one of my kilts ...

    I have a plain white Ecuadorian, just like your red patterened one. It is my dress shirt of choice unless I have to wear a tie.

    Riverkilt - I like your outfits. They reflect your cultural interests and personal style.

    You certainly have a point there, Wompet.

    Ron and I ARE different kinds of guys, in different environments and, indeed, in countries with different standards. Ron is a total free spirit with tattoos and long hair whereas I am much more of a conventional type who comforms (pretty much) to our society's norms. Our dress styles will inevitably reflect this. I greatly admire Ron and his choices of clothing, much of which I could not possibly wear: a) because it would not suit me, and b) because it would not be accepted by the society in which I choose to live! There have been times in later life when I wished I might have had a small tattoo somewhere and, about four years ago, I actually tried to grow my hair rebelliously long - well, it reached my collar! However, I know I could not really be comfortable walking around with 'body art' or modification and I certainly WAS uncomfortable with hair that was just long enough to pull back into a 4" ponytail - as were my friends and neighbours!!

    Well, Rob, those ladies know what they are talking about, don't they? ;) I am afraid I would certainly have deducted for the Disney shirt too - a nice plain Polo shirt would have been SO much more appropriate. The belt, also, would lose my marks - sorry. That is really a Dress belt, normally worn semi-formally, or formally with evening dress (not a Prince Charlie, of course!!). A simple plain black belt with a chrome pronged buckle would, again, be more suited to your environment, and to the time of day. But then, as Wompet rightly points out, I am seeing you with British eyes not American ones!

    Ham,

    You sir are THE man. Don't think I'd be having as much fun kilted as I am today without you as an inspiration.

    While we are different men in different cultures, I think we have the same kilted heart.

    I aspire to acquire the grace you ooze.

    And, I was really quite "conventional" for most of my life. Didn't start growing my hair long until age 50. Didn't get my first tattoo until age 59. And, the kilts came into my life at 59 too.

    So, its never too late

    Ron
