    Thanks much

    The laced waistcoat was one that I picked up in a trade. It was 40th of Foot out of Canada. Wool is rather thin, and its linen lined. I switched out the lace and shortened it for wear with the 42nd. The Unlaced buff faced coat was bespoke, Woolrich wool and K&P bay/broadcloth lining and cuffs , the unlaced madder and buff faced red drummers coat are K&P wool, I made with the pattern that was part of the deal on the bespoke coat.

    I've only tried wearing the kilt like that a few times. More often the back just hangs long behind me. But I wanted to give it a go. I don't like the brooch and prefer to simply tie it with twill tape. Much more secure.

    I found some pictures...

    It's good for keeping off the rain and for cuddles/protecting your child from the rain as well.
