    Sorry to keep you waiting!

    Great story, great music, lovely film and by all accounts, a great show, but as an example of traditional kilt attire in that picture, it is not in the least bit great. It’s a shame that the kilt is not even being worn properly, even though the actor is using artistic licence with his attire.

    That was exactly the reason I posted the photo, it is the first time I can recall seeing something like this in the wild so to speak. While it may not be my preferred style I cannot deny that some do find this appropriate.

    That doesn't quite look like a Sheriffmuir doublet, though, more like someone just added sleeves to a chieftain's vest. So I suppose that makes the Jacobite shirt rather appropriate, since I honestly can't imagine a chieftain's vest with anything but a Jacobite shirt. The only thing I can see lamenting is the mistaken belief that such garments are traditional, as opposed to a romanticized homage to historical styles. But if someone who's aware of this wears them anyway because they like the look, then I agree, more power to 'em.

    I suppose it's worth mentioning that I saw a video today from some random YouTuber on how to put on a kilt outfit, and he paired a Jacobite shirt with a Prince Charlie jacket and waistcoat. Yes, that made me cringe just a teensy bit...
