    Almost five years.

    Almost five years ago I decided to sink a weeks pay or so into my FK cargo model. I have abused this kilt beyond belief.

    It has primer on the apron from my latest boat build, and still wears well.

    Now I wear it for knocking around, but that's about all I do. I've lost weight, but the fit was so precise that it still does good.

    If anyone is wondering about the value, an FK is a bargain. I still wear my X-Kilt, and like it but I can't match the workmanship from BC.

    I'll try to get some pics soon, but for now would like to know what other folks who have spent a few years in their FKs' think.

    If I ever pop for a family tartan ( beatty ) trad, I know who I'm going to call.

    If you're thinking about it, do it. I seriously have abused this garment and I'd buy it all over again.

    Re: Almost five years.

    I would love to see some photos of this kilt. I remember making it for you.

    We do, on occasion, have customers from many years ago stop into the shop or send us photos of their Freedom Kilts.

    I am amazed and humbled to think that what I have made is appreciated in this way.

    Thank you and awaiting some 'after' shots.
