    I think there's a bit of both.

    Part of the not understanding, which I've mentioned several times, is the widely-held notion that Highland Dress floats outside of time itself.

    I have never seen men in Highland Dress at Dickens, Victorian, or American Civil War events who didn't mix period-appropriate items with 20th century items. (These same people would never dream of mixing non-Highland 19th and 20th century clothing.)

    The guy I mentioned was exceptionally resourceful and successful at era-conflation. He not only combined items from a several-hundred-year timespan but also from different degrees of formality and different nationalities to boot (literally; the Native American moccasins were a brilliant touch).
