    Great look Jamie.

    These are beautiful shots Jamie, Well done!

    I think the portrait shot is marvelous. You wear it very well.

    Here's a group of Scots who have worn Highland Dress regularly since they were youths- they're pipers.

    As you can see the Evening Dress of the 1930s has changed little, the main difference being that until fairly recently buckled shoes and tartan hose were considered standard for Evening Dress, and plain shoes and plain hose were considered squarely in the realm of Day Dress.

    Here half the men are wearing tartan hose and only one gent is wearing buckles, the always dapper Gordon Walker, who tends to be the most dressed-up man at any occasion.

    He's also the only man not wearing the currently ubiquitous black Prince Charlie.

    What you don't see are ruffles, crossbelts, weaponry, brooches, plaids, and all the other things now considered oldfashioned in Evening Dress.
