    Happy Purchase!

    Received my order of 3 yards of 16oz Blackwatch today, its my new great kilt. Very happy with how easy the purchase was, especially how quickly the fabric made it all the way to Indiana, via Canada from Scotland.

    I will be sending folks your way for sure!

    Thanks so much

    Luke

    Here you can see me wearing it, rather striking compared to the ordinary average "Black Watchish" tartan.

    Nice vibrant color there Luke. As your jacket fades with use in the sun, it will look even better.

    I doubt that the coat will fade like the guy next to me. Different dyes. My coat is a Deep Madder, while my waistcoat and everyone else's garments are just plain madder red. But my cuffs may end going from the buff color to the camel color of theirs!

    How much fade do you think the kilt will receive?

    I get what you mean about the shade difference of the waistcoat and jacket now. I agree your cuffs will lighten a bit.

    its aniline dyed, so not as much as it would if using period dyes. I really admire some of the 19th century reenactors that have weavers who are really doing fabric that even on a molecular level is correct. Seeing how even over one year the oxidation of the dye in say a logwood or sumac dyed garment is so interesting
