    New kilt arrived!

    It's been around ten years since I got a new kilt. Then it was the Isle Of Skye which has been my go-to kilt ever since.

    Within the last couple years I discovered I had Stewart ancestry so I wanted a Stewart kilt. Now I have one!

    I got a kilt from USA Kilts in the Marton Mills 16oz tweed Hunting Stewart Weathered. The fabric is gorgeous.

    I haven't had an opportunity to get pics of me wearing it (nobody to take the photos) so these will have to do, three possible outfits.



    About hose, I'm not thrilled with how any of my current hose look with this tartan.

    Probably the best is this soft Ancient Blue.

    Would a thistle coloured hose work? Thatís the first thing I thought. I do also like your ancient light blue.

    Great looking kilt.

    I'd go for a lighter blue/grey to pull out the colour in the kilt - or a muted pair similar to HoC Byson, but maybe a custom knit with diced tops to pull out the red stripe.

    Richard,

    Beautiful kilt. I particularly like your lovat green jacket with it. I'd suggest to pick up a pair of brick red or mustard yellow hose- something that would draw out the stripes in the HS. Lovat blue would also look nice.

    Thanks for all the hose suggestions! I hadn't thought of most of those.

    Thistle? Like a pinkish/purplish colour?

    The next time I'm at a Games hopefully there will be some hose to be seen and I can check out some of your ideas.

    I have the Cheviot "bison" but they look a bit too taupe/purple to me.

    The jacket that's middle in the collage above and to the right is the photo below is an interesting colour. Not really Lovat nor grey nor moss, the closest thing to it is Feldgrau, perhaps. In any case I really like how it goes with that kilt. (That jacket sort of goes with anything I've put it with.)

    Here's my three tweed jackets, the centre one wasn't included in the collage above because I didn't care for the look with the Hunting Stewart Weathered.

    Richard, the third jacket to the right is a standout- both in color and design detail on the cuffs. Where did you get it? What tweed is it made of?

    Which one would you say goes with the Stewart of Atholl?

    They all look great to me.
    Those ancient U Nialls from Donegal were a randy bunch.

    It is a standout. The label says Cooper & McKenzie, which is a shop in Dundee. I don't know anything more about it, sorry.

    I got it on Ebay for around $100.

    As you noticed it has much nicer cuffs than those other two jackets. (Those aren't separate cuffs per se, they're entirely sewn onto and into the sleeves.)

    The Cooper & McKenzie jacket has elaborately made separate cuffs, which are satin-lined like the rest of the jacket.

    They're only held onto the sleeve by a small bit of stitching. I tried to take photos of how they're made:

    I think it depends on the colours, if they're Modern, Ancient, Weathered, or Muted colours.
