    Hello Christoph, I was wondering if you've considered posting pictures of your 1894 tailor's cutting manual, or have done so already in another thread? As someone interested in learning to create my own kilt what you mentioned sounds fascinating. Granted, it's probably the 1894 version of a technical stereo manual, so anyone outside of a professional tailor would have a hard time understanding... but still

    I think that I may have posted this info in another thread but, here goes.

    I hope that this information is of use.

    The Cutters' Practical Guides by W.D.F. Vincent were not just one book but 13 volumes covering just about every aspect of making garments.

    I downloaded and printed Vol 14 which covers Trousers, Breeches & Knickers and the added chapters which cover The Cutting & Making of Highland Kilts, Leggings, Gaiters &c.

    Try doing a search and you can find it and print a copy. But notice that the complete instruction for a kilt in the guide are just over one page. Barb's TAoK is 142 pages.

    Not for me

    I personally am not a fan of tats. I do admit that I occasionally admire some that are well done.
    Do you really need another thing the police can identify you by? We all have our own ideas of whats appropriate to wear with our kilts.
    After spending considerable money for mine I don't see the point in being anything less than well dressed all the time. Can't quite see distracting from it with a T shirt character, no matter how well revered. This is one of those arguments no one can win.
    Be seeing you.

    I am quite interested in your data find and will be looking at it. In the addition that I have "Trousers" is volume 3. and volume 13 (the last book that I have) is "Military".
