    A number of 'firsts' this year. Not only is this my first time kilted at our local event but my first public appearance semi-formal attire, including the debut of my 5yrd Strathmore in Kennedy Modern and Nicoll Bros sporran. In my opinion it was a successful sartorial ensemble.

    You look great! Actually, we’d probably class that as ‘daywear’ but it’s the right outfit for sure.

    Our Lodge's Burns Night is this Thursday. Aside from the Brigadoonery, the consensus for dress code seems to be black tie so PC and dress sporrans. I will take photos (that's my job that night, in fact, as I will be shooting for the state's Masonic newspaper)

    Typically black argyll with silver buttons, tie, dress sporran.

    Basically as below (although this was taken at a wedding, so no button-hole for Burns') but with different hose as I rarely wear the black ones these days...

    cool shots

    There have been a lot of threads lately about black sporrans so I am making two one for McKenzie and one Anderson. Maybe I'll look as good as everybody here.

    Our local Burns Supper was a little early...

    For the past few years, we've attended the Burns Supper conducted by the Houston District of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society with our friends, the McIntyres ("Jack Daw", a former XMarker). The RSCDS puts on a nice event which we always enjoy.

    My wife and I before the event:



    And at the event:



    Apologies for the distortion on the second photo... I can't explain it, but my iPhone seems to do that. Or maybe my head is just misshapen!)

    A good time was had by all!

    Cheers,
