    Your 2019 Burns supper outfit

    With Burns suppers the world over upon us now, I was wondering what us XMarks gents were wearing.

    (I feel that ladies' dress deserves its own poll.)

    To clarify the poll options:

    1 through 8 assume a kilt outfit.

    3: This is for Highland kilt outfits featuring Prince Charlies or Argylls in other colours such as green, blue, etc. except for tartan or tweed which have their own options.

    4: This is for Highland kilt outfits featuring jacket styles other than Prince Charlie or Argyll such as Montrose, Kenmore, Sheriffmuir, Regulation Doublet, etc in all colours except for tartan or tweed which have their own options.

    5. Any Highland kilt outfit which includes a tartan jacket of any style.

    6. Any Highland Evening Dress kilt outfit which does not fall within the above categories, say gents wearing waistcoats without jackets, or in shirtsleeves.

    7. Any Highland kilt outfit featuring a tweed jacket of any style or colour including charcoal grey, lovat blues or greens, check tweed, or any tweed except black. (Black jackets are covered in other options.)

    8. Casual kilt outfits of any sort not covered by the options above: kilts with jumpers, utility kilts, kilts with golf shirts, kilts with t-shirts, and so forth.

    9. Tartan trousers/trews outfits.

    10. Sassunach/Saxon dress of any sort including ordinary suits, outfits including slacks with sports coats, waistcoats, or shirtsleeves, casual attire, and so forth. For the sake of the poll (having only ten options) gents wearing tartan jackets with Saxon dress fall under this option.

    A note for pipers: Many of us are pipers who might be wearing Pipe Band kit at the Burns event we are piping at.

    For the vast majority of Pipe Bands the world over this includes a black Barathea waistcoat with silver buttons and a black sporran with silver cantle. Option #6 is the appropriate one for this form of dress. Also for the sake of the poll we could consider the small number of pipers wearing the full military-style Full Dress as falling under option #6 "other".

    However many pipers will be wearing outfits falling under one of the other options, say pipers wearing black Argylls falling under option #2, and so forth.


    Thanks!!

    And it would be very nice if people in addition to voting in the poll also posted pics of their outfits. Group photos are always nice in that they give a wider impression of the dress at various Burns dinners.

    I'll be wearing my Black PC, thinking of going in my Scottish wildcat kilt with purple hose and black gillie brogues.

    This Saturday will be my first Burns Night outing and my first time in a non-utility kilt in about a dozen years. I'll be wearing a black Argyll and 5-button waistcoat with my New World Celts tartan, bottle green hose with red flashes (and a red pocket square, if I can find one that's a close enough match to the flashes), brogued black Florsheim wingtips, dress sporran, white shirt with French cuffs and turn-down collar, and an emerald green tie.

    In the past, I have usually gone with option 1 (Black PC outfit). Last year I went with option 7 (Tweed jacket outfit). Our Burns Supper is this Saturday, and I'm still undecided which way to go. I'll do the poll and post pictures after the event.

    I won’t be able to make the Burns Dinner either in DC, where I am for work, or in Milwaukee, which I’d normally attend.

    So instead I will wear my lovat green tweed jacket and waistcoat with my kilt to the office tomorrow and bring Walker’s Shortbread for my colleagues to enjoy (more than they’d enjoy haggis, probably).

    I'm piping at two Burns events again this year, Friday night with the Pipe Band and Saturday night just me.

    The band will be dressed like this: Prince Charles Edward Stuart kilts, black Barathea waistcoats with silver buttons, black sporrans with silver cantles, black hose, ghillies



    For my solo gig I'll probably be dressed in my usual go-to outfit: black Argyll, Isle Of Skye kilt, Edwardian goathair sporran, Cheviot hose, ghillies

    Burns Supper here is not very formal. I'll be wearing MacPhail with a charcoal tweed Wallace Jacket & Waistcoat. I will wear a tie.
