For some reason I can't figure out, this photo and the kilted soldier series it came from was
 attributed by my source solely to Basil Clavering rather than to Royale or Hussar Studio.

    1. I don't know which regimental tartan that is, but it looks the real McCoy. I never realized Andy Stewart had such well-cooked buns.

    2. As the proud owner of an Edinburgh made kilt, I can tell you that the real ones are marvels of garment construction. Mine clearly shows the Clan tartan in the back through a couple dozen pleats. Can't tell if this one does due to the angle, though.

  2. I dream of having a kilt. The problem is, I won't have much opportunity to wear it. I find it really beautiful when it's a real tartan !!!

    1. I don't wear mine that often, Albert, but when I do, I get lots of compliments. The Scots were one of the first outside groups to settle in Hawaii by invitation, and several of them were advisors to the early Kings.
