    Took me a while to get to like the Dewi Sant, but I think I was looking at original runs of the tartan. The 'new' colours seem much better and 'show' well now. Thanks for the welcome.

    Hi Tokareva. Thank you for the welcome. Not sure what you mean about the fabric? Scotweb (easy Google search) have the Pritchard tartan in their Welsh Tartans range (modern, hunting etc). It's a medium weight tartan, has no kilting selvedge but otherwise is great for kilts, and wider. Its Welsh origins clearly means an unusual approach to sett and to colour! Never had a problem with them as a supplier. Cilts in Cymru are on the up certainly, hence the Dewi Sant official tartan. I am not convinced there is any historical evidence supporting Welsh cilt wearing, but as with the other Celtic nations, it sure upsets the English ����. Our jackets, predominantly the Charlie are similar although the cuff and tail buttons have a swatch of the matching cilt tartan behind them. If like me, you wear several cilts you tend to go for a standard Scottish pattern. Additionally, eppoulettes are normally missing. We also tend to wear stand shoes (brogues) rather than gillies but it's personal choice. Let me know about the material thing in case I can help. As for Scottish tartans..... Not sure anyone would care/mind ��

    Welcome to the board, from the dry side of Washington State!
    New thing I learned today, no K in the Welsh language... cool.

    Thank you for the info, Blaidd. When I say I'm waiting for the fabric to improve, I'm referring to the 14 oz WTC Welsh Tartan Centre fabric from Cambrian woolen mill. It is a very flimsy fabric, very airy and light, you can see a lot of light through it if held up against a light source. They are however in the process of updating it with higher quality wool, from my understanding.
    The kilt company I buy from gets their Welsh tartans from WTC.

    Here is a link so you can see the specifics.

    Hi Blaidd ... Welcome to XMTS. Ive been wearing Welsh Cilts (and others) full time now for over 8 years here in South Wales. Never any problem. Only on very rare occasion do you see anyone else wearing one. They are now very popular at weddings though and also on rugby international days. Im lucky the wife is fine with it. If your moving back to Wales we must try and meet up.

    That's interesting. My original Pride of... came from there and it is heavy wool. I confess my Dewi Sant came from a 'more economical' supplier, so was unaware of any concerns. I look forward to any update!

    Good to hear, Derek! I confess, I have never had any problems, in fact quite the opposite! I have posed for more photos in a Cilt than anything! It's good to know that popularity is growing - we could perhaps claim to be trail blazers! Would certainly enjoy meeting up...!
    Diolch.

    Shwmae!

    I have a Roberts (my last name), a Vaughn (it is the colors of my undergrad and i liked the look), and a Pride of Wales (one of those fashion tartans, that I bought for a wedding I was part of).

    Happy cilting! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿
