    In my opinion that article is terrible in that it makes the quite recent Kilt Hire look seem acceptable, normal, and traditional.

    Yes and no, I'd say. For example, he does say things like "note that white and off-white hose are often seen but are deplored by some" so he's seen some anti-kilt-hire advice.

    Troglodyte - note that he seems to have given in on the brogues, although he mentions only buckled and ghillie.

    For people who scan the article and don't read every word, the photos promote the Kilt Hire look.

    Since that is diametrically opposed to their normal ethos (if doing a video about tuxedos they wouldn't only show photos of modern cheap Tux Shop attire) I can only assume that they really don't know much about Highland wear.

    All of this is true.

    Tons of articles and videos including one on highland wear which appears to be mostly accurate.

    (Yes, that's a picture of Panache towards the bottom.)
    I'm flattered, I like the GG videos

    I like the Gentleman's Gazette and think there is some great advice there. I find it particularly useful for stuff I find in thrift and vintage shops. However, I take what they say as advice rather than law, and have no problem ignoring it when I chose. For example, they have a lot of prescriptions about what watch to wear with black tie. They say, that it's not supposed to have a day date complication, roman numerals or no numerals, must be black face. I find this a bit persnickety considering nobody is supposed to see your watch when you are wearing black tie.
