    Isle of Skye redux

    When I started wearing the kilt over a decade ago I was really taken with the Isle of Skye tartan it was one of my first kilts and I loved it. My ex-wife decided to throw it away along with another kilt from What Price Glory when we were going through our divorce. I was sure I would never replace it and tried to move on. Fast forward to a month or so ago while I was checking out EBay I came across an Isle of Skye kilt at an affordable 35 I put it on my watch list and waited, at the last possible moment I put a bid on it and won it for 40. This was a far cry from the over $800 the original cost me. I am very happy with the purchase. I've worn it a few times since it arrived and I am so glad I decided to replace the kilt that was lost to me. Here are a few photos from the past couple of weeks.

    Isle of Skye is a beautiful kilt. Looks especially sharp with the waistcoat and brass cantled sporran.

    Kilts looks great for that price tag! On a side comment, I have grown so accustomed to seeing your pupper in your kilted pictures, that I find it strange when he/she is not there

    The kilt looks great Glen. I am partial to the Isle Of Skye tartan too.

    Oh, and your ex-wife sounds like a real piece of work. Glad that you have the last laugh.

    Nice kilt and an absolute steal at that price, seeing that it fits so well.

    Definitely one of the best fashion tartans. You look good in the new kilt by the way.
