    That fits with what I've been able to glean, that the heavy "Arran" hose/ghillies/Prince Charlie/Balmoral bonnet look probably began in Canada.

    Those Arran hose, I'm almost positive, would have been "natural" hose, in the unbleached offwhite wool, rather than the bleached artificial gleaming white hose of the 1980s.

    The Canadian look invades Scotland, 1970s.
