    I go back and forth with the belt issue.

    Generally I don't wear one. However most of the time I'm out in Highland Dress it's because I'm performing on the pipes somewhere, and for those occasions I usually button my jacket.

    Yes I know that it's standard to not button Argyll jackets! But if I don't, when I strike in the pipes one side of the jacket can get pulled up by the bag, an unsightly look.

    Since I'll be buttoning the jacket when it's Showtime the belt wouldn't be seen anyway.

    When in Highland Dress and not playing the pipes (which is rare) I will keep the jacket unbuttoned and wear a belt if not wearing a waistcoat.

    I did just throw together this belt a couple weeks ago to sort of go with my new Margaret Morrison hunting sporran.

    I guess the belt should be darker...it's the leather I had. (I bought the buckle in the early 1970s at a craft fair in West Virginia.)
