    I can't explain it, but it's visible to me and others. Perhaps this will help:

    Having spent 40 years in the Pipe Band world, this is practically inconceivable.

    Because most contests require bands to state their tartan when they register, and each band's tartan is listed in the programme:



    (From the World Pipe Band Championships 2007 programme)

    Some contests require solo competitors to state their tartan also.

    However I did look at the Sherman Celtic Festival pipe band registration form and it didn't require bands to state their tartans.

    I would have to look at the registration forms of other Texas contests to see if it's a Texas thing. I know the contests in California and Scotland require it.

    All I know is what he told me. I’ll likely see him again next month at the Texas Scottish Festival and will ask a few more questions.

    Their Wiki site simply calls it a "custom tartan" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_o...orse_Pipe_Band

    It's a growing thing in the Pipe Band world for bands to have bespoke tartans.

    One especially sees that in Grade One bands, but even in the lower grades it's becoming more common.

    At Grade One at the Worlds bands with bespoke tartans include Field Marshal Montgomery, Scottish Power, Lomond & Clyde, Simon Fraser University, and the 78th Fraser Highlanders http://www.xmarksthescot.com/forum/f...-tartan-94401/

    Add to that the New Zealand Police who wear MacLeod Society Centenary.

    We have two local pipe bands who wear bespoke tartans: the Salt Lake Scots



    the University of California Riverside
