    so it wasn't just a typo?
    I did a web search for "Glenalendale", and only get references to "Glenaladale".

You may just want to periodically press the fold to keep it crisp.
    The length was close to be right. It could be lengthened if needed. I like the fabric. The kilt at waist fits right. It is machine sewn.
    If I wear a belt, the black trim at the top hardly shows.

    I was stressed at the time that I received it.

    For a custom tartan, it looks pretty good.

    The Dalgliesh 16oz fabric is nice!.

    The clearance kilt that I got last summer was in Glenaladale Plaid

    I probably would not have sought it out. It appeared in the clearance list and the sizing was close to what I needed. It was my second kilt.

    I will put up a picture of the kilt this weekend.


    As a matter of interest, what height are you?
    Long Legged 6'2". The 24" kilt looks short.
