    My preference would be the single dark stripe.

    The dark stripe in the reddish field. It would give a flash of Ocker, with every swish.

    (I write this not sure whether Peter is referring to the narrow dark stripe centred in the wide amber-tan field, or the wide brick-red stripe.)

    With pleating. one of the several things I like about pleating "to the stripe" or "to the block" is that you get two looks for the price of one.

    That is, there's an opportunity to create a nice contrast between the front and back of the kilt.

    Being that the front of a Glen Affiric kilt is going to be over two-thirds amber-tan, I would want the back of the kilt to not be amber-tan.

    So I would go with the broad brick-red band for the pleats.

    This is nice because you get a dark/light contrast between the front and back of the kilt, and also you might get that effect when you walk and the pleats swish that the lighter colour will flash from beneath the darker colour.

    Feels like a fun thing to announce you're wearing the "Bog Tartan" and then get to go into a ramble about it's history when people ask :0)
    Uh, I would suggest referring to it as the "Peat Bog Tartan" just to be a bit more clear. In the UK, "bog" is slang for the toilet.

    Interesting!

    An Irish guy I did a couple gigs with used the term "bog Irish" to mean rural peasant Irish, sort of the Irish equivalent of the US hillbilly.

    Now I'm unsure which meaning of "bog" he had in mind!

    The Glen Affric certainly isn't 'bog' standard.

    I think most within the Uk would understand the intended meaning of the word in general conversation, without a second thought.
