    ďMilitary specĒ reenactment version, not museum version

    It is not.

    Just a heads-up in case anyone was looking for an accurate military kilt, this isn't it.

    . I have 3 government issue Black Watch kilts, 2 RRS and an Argyle and Sutherland. Iíve never seen one with double bar harness buckles, like this one. Is that common? This guy, WPG, caters to the re-enactment crowd. His stuff looks great, but itís not mil-spec, if you look closely. If you look at the sellerís off eBay website, youíll find he normally sells these for $195.00USD. Seems odd heís trying to blow this one out on eBay, for barely 1/4 of that.

    With the re-enacting folks the devil is in the details, and they want everything just right.

    This kilt wouldn't do, it's too "farby" in their lingo.
