    Black Watch, Ancient, from Lochannon.

    Edited to add, that I attached an image, it was less than the maximum file size for a jpg, but it still does not show up. Im no luddite when it comes to computers, but I do not for the life of me understand why the photos will not upload and show.

    I too have had some trouble attaching photos. To the point of almost giving up. Not that my photos are supremely interesting but I have been told by some members the ones I have been able to post are good. Last week I was in Victoria so I stopped in to Freedom Kilts and got to talking to Steve about the problem. He explained what was going on with a site wanting payment to store pictures but I don't use that site. He then suggested it was likely my Firewall that was preventing the photos from being posted on XMTS, He was adamant that the problem was not with the XMTS site . He suggested using postimage.org to hold the photos I would like to post. I tried it and with a bit of stumbling, (I am hugely a "computer illiterate" so far things are working .....Steve was absolutely right the XMTS site isn't at fault, it appears it is the Firewall setting on my computer. I'll try again now with a photo of the pleating of my Canadian Maple Leaf tartan on my newest kilt to see if I'm still successful 7_Maple_Leaf_in_16_oz._wool_pleat_centred_on_the_thin_green_stri.jpg

    I think I have the photo issue taken care of, here is an OK shot, shows how Ive pleated to hide the black vertical bars of the Govt Sett tartan. But most of the time, the drape of tartan above the belt droops to cover the majority of the pleating in the back, so its not that big of a deal. I hope Bess's being in the photo does not offend.

    Very nice Luke! I like the look of the top of the plaid pinned to the shoulder. I'm hesitant to do it cuz I don't want to put holes in my clothes. I usually pin opposite ends of the top of the plaid together and drape it over my left shoulder, or just tuck the front in the back and let it hang behind me.

    That is not pinned, I have a strip of cloth that follows the back shoulder seam of the coat, and the tartan has a bit of ribbon sewed to it, the tartan goes under the loop and then the ribbon is tied around the plaid in a nice bow knot

    When I wear my belted plaid, I pleat one sett deep. There was no reason to it other than creating a standard to have consistent pleats. I have thought of creating loops to pleat more efficiently, but I rarely wear the great kilt anymore to prompt me to it.
