    a couple new items

    I finally managed to get an official necktie for my university. It's scarlet with small "SD" spear logos on it in black and darker red.

    I also have a new sporran (had it a couple months now). It is a black hunting sporran from Margaret Morisson sporranmakers. It's a thousand times better than my old pakistani sporran from a material and construction standpoint alone. Much more durable with thick leather gusseting and a suede lining whereas the old one was made of stiff, cheap leather, unlined, with a thin pleather gusset.

    Lighting is bad in these photos but I have a shirt with a green gingham check on.

    There's a weird perspective thing with the photos that makes my kilt look longer than it is. I think the photographers was angling the phone down a bit.

    I found my old cheapo sporran. I will have to do a thread comparing the two with photos as it might help some people to see just how big of a difference in quality there is between an inferior copy and the "real deal." I originally balked at the cost of Scottish sporrans but the difference really is night and day.
