From the Kilts in the Media-Why Jack Bauer is cool thread Jock Scot had this quote about the pic posted there:
"I have to admit that I have no idea who the fellow is.To his credit he is smartly turned out with well polished brogues and not those awful ghillie things. Mael, you make an interesting comment about the colour of his hose(I assume you are talking about the green ones?). I would guess that that colour would be "the best seller" here in Scotland."
This is the first reference I noticed about there being a difference between "brogues" and "ghillies". Are they the same shoe only one without the longer laces? Wanting to put a PC outfit together I've only heard of ghillie brogues.
Here's to a long life and a merry one, A quick death and an easy one,
A pretty girl and an honest one, A cold beer and another one.
