going (bespoke) native

This website started almost a year ago with a post about Howie Nicholsby and 21st Century Kilts, so it seems logical that I would eventually circle back to Howie with a post about what is now my second kilt:  a mossy green tweed that Howie measured me for way back in May.  My first bespoke kilt, we designed it together, adding two detachable front pockets with a reverse pleat, two detachable rear pockets for a wallet and cell phone, and a matching waistcoat with an added ticket pocket.  Best of all is the flash lining, which you can’t see here:  bright orange polka-dotted silk that picks up a faint trace of rust in the tweed.   Conveniently in Edinburgh right now, I was able to swing by the shop and pick it up in person – and get the VAT back, too.  My Kitty librettist joined me and was so taken with it that he took the plunge and bought one off the peg himself.
