    Oh, but I haven't just started, I wore my first kilt at about age 6. (I still have it, along with my Montrose doublet, hose, lace Jabot, etc. I wish I knew where that little sporran was!) I just took a long break.

    Welcome from Sunny Southern California!



    I came to kilt-wearing much later than you, I got my first kilt at the age of 18. I'd been playing the pipes for a year or so and it was time to get the outfit to go with it. 45 years kilted now.

    Welcome from midlands of South Carolina.
    I've found that most relationships work best when no one wears pants.

    Thanks again, all. So, I'm, taking bagpipe lessons, got a set of pipes, fixing (tailoring) my own kilt and jackets.

    I have a Thos. Gordon and Sons kilt that was my Dad's. It's about 60 years old, maybe older. The straps and buckle tabs, which I can only assume were original, were pretty poor, in my view. I replaced the straps with new belt-leather ones I made, and made new buckle tabs, all per Robert MacDonald's method. The lining was very yellowed, so I've made a new lining, and it only remains now to stitch-in the lining.
