    LOL!

    56 Pleats

    To SlagerDummer: The number 56 has a tremendous Kabbalistic significance to the Rabbinate. Although when you make a kilt with so many pleats, the result was a remarkable peace of art and craftmanship.

    The pleats are variable (hour glass shapped) and range from 0.9 cm to just over 1.12 cm. The depth of the pleats are almost 10 cm ( close to 4 inches), hence the tremedously large amount of tartam employed.

    Cheers,

    Rabbi_Pazo

    It is my understanding, that it is appropriate, upon hearing good news that benefits others, to recite the ha'tov ha'metiv blessing. As it's clear that you are absolutely stoked and excited about the completion of this huge project, congratulations and Mazel Tov!

    To my eye, the peacock -- the male peacock, has escaped his cage, and I don't think anyone's going to be able to corral him or get him back into the cage of conformity. He's on his own now, and he's flying high!

    Congratulations, Raphael, but we have a saying here on this forum: it didn't happen if there are no photos to prove it. We've seen the tartan and it's lovely, but to keep us happy and believing you, you must show us the kilt and you in it! Well, hmmm, really two pics are required: one from the front and the second a Hamish shot of the pleats (just visit the Hamish-the-Legend section of the forum for the finest of style examples).

    We don't need to see how it was made -- almost all of us have been there and done that inumerable times in our lives -- but we drool to see finished work, especially when it is of such a massive undertaking as this kilt of yours.

    No excuses now, just two little pics; just two

    I, too, congratulate you, Bro.'. Raphael on your single-minded determination to bring this impressive project to fruition.

    I must, however, agree with Rex, i.e. "pictures or it didn't happen."

    In other words, please stop teasing us and post some pictures of this unique kilt!!

    Cordially and Fraternally,

    To which Geoff Withnell responded: AMEN.

    AMEN to that, brothers!
    This is an extraordinary garment, Rabbi, and I congratulate you on its completion.
    Mazel tov!
