"Can always find a local shop that deals in kilts or has dealings with kilt manufacturers in Scotland. Have them measure you up and they will order it. Had good dealings with Strathmore in Forfar Scotland. 100% New Wool, well made etc,…"
"I have no personal experience with these folks, but a kilt-wearing acquainteance swears by Stillwater Kilts. They have numerous plaids and their non-wool fabrics come in under $100 for most patterns.
Greetings gentlemen,I currently have one kilt, a St. Patrick's tartan from Sport Kilt. I like it. It's well made, a comfortable fit, and this thing repels stains like you wouldn't believe. It's a perfect everyday kilt.However, I'm looking to get 2 more kilts. I'm going to get a great kilt and another causal wear kilt. For the great kilt, I know it's limiting, but I'm looking to spend $150 or less. I've seen a couple of places online that do it in tartan fabric made from polyviscose (which my…See More
"Charles: that's the tartan I wear in honor of three successive generations of Irish women who married into my Scottish family. The McCaw clan has no official tartan, and I won't wear another's last name. I'm getting a great kilt…"
"It was kind of tongue in cheek, but sincere. I mean, if you're a flaming anything, you stand out as a representative of that group. It'd be a shame to make Jesus look like the kind of dude who tolerates cheap jerks hanging around…"
"Charles, is that the St. Patrick tartan?Brian, do tell. We all envy you. I'd emigrate to Scotland if I could make it happen. And, Middle Eastern men tend to wear more open, one-piece style garments, not wholly unlike a kilt if the shirt were…"
"Dude...if I could write a letter to my 20 year old self, it'd go a bit like this:Dear 20 year old me,
First, yes, you do get married and have sex. It's awesome! Really, it's better than you even thought it could be.
Second, if you see…"
"I understand the apprehension. The looks and comments from the slack-jawed banjo pluckers about "the guy in the skirt" can get to you. I got that just Saturday. I'm rarely out of my kilt, anymore. It still gets to me (especially when…"
"As a son of the Scottish diaspora with clan roots reaching back to the 7th century, there's little I'd love more than the ideal notion of a free Scotland.
However, I also wonder if it will be the right move. I don't know if tax…"
Thanks for the critique. My shop is in Sacramento Ca but there is a great shop in Vancouver called Moe's Barbershop. I used to sell pomade to them years ago if go in and run into the owner tell them the Madcats Pomade guy sent you in :)
As a devoted Auburn fan, I can easily say that the Auburn vs Alabama game is the biggest game of the year for us. After last year it would be hard to ask for a better performance from our boys, especially since we've been in a slump these last few weeks. So that being said I think that Alabama is going to win this year, especially since they're so good (like always). Plus it's going to be Tuscaloosa this year.If anything Bama is going to get back at us for making them look stupid last year with…See More

My main point is that the much over-vaunted local control is not the panacea it is oft promoted as being.
