    This is from the MacMillan Clan Chief. "Have you any knowledge of a Branch member who likes to wear the MacMillan 'black' tartan?<snip> So far as I'm concerned, he can wear whatever he likes. But, if he tries to persuade others that it's an authentic MacMillan tartan, I suppose I'll have to disabuse him. " I'm afraid this would be me. This is a direct quote from our Clan Chief. You MacMillans now are brought up to speed. The modern black is not recognized as official. I will continue to wear mine. I will let others know of the Clan Chief's descision. Jack/Fedgunner

    Amadan, I have to ask, did you use clutch back lapel-type pins on these, or have you found 2 1/4" brooch pin backs somewhere?

    Congrats on the weight loss. I'm right behind you. 50lbs in 13 weeks. I will wait until I get close to my target weight to buy more kilts, at least anything expensive.

    Well I lost 111lbs so far and I have been lucky enough to find a kilt maker who also does alterations. I have two in right now and in November, I'll give her three more when I pass through while going to Canada. These weren't simple move the buckle alterations either and considering the cost of a new kilt....well I can get three altered (maybe four) for the cost of one new one.

    I plan to go under hers, but I haven't bought a new kilt as I am in the process of losing weight. I don't want to buy something that will be too big in 3 months as kilts don't have a lot of play. In her case, Watt falls under Buchanan. It's a very colorful tartan. I was never in the military really. AROTC for two years and then figured out I wasn't meant for it. I didn't find a tartan design app on Scotweb, I think it was. I made something that incorporated my Irish and English ancestry, but boy, it's a fortune to have it made. I don't think my schools have Tartans (SUNY, NYU and University of Phoenix), but I'll have to look. The states I've lived do, but I haven't found somewhere that sells the AZ tartan. I'll have to look harder.

    Hi all, Just got got back from Disney cruise for 8 days. Disney has some REALLY nice military discounts. Saved over 45%, couldn't pass it up and since about have the ship was filled with retirees, reservists and active duty we were in pretty good company. I brought mostly kilts for this since there was going to be a formal night, a semi-formal and a fancy brunch. Figured why pack twice the stuff since I needed to bring all the stuff for the kilts anyways. There were a couple times I did go conventional. Part of one was my limits of hose. Doing laundry on vacation is not a vacation so there was a limit to how many changes I could do. One of those times was at Animal Kingdom in Disney World. Got a back stage tour which required us to wear harnesses. Kilts and harnesses aren't the best combination. They chafe. Here is the first installment. Thought I'd hit the kilts first and than get to the rest a bit later. It will be a mix of Disney's and my pics. My kilt pin for most of the cruise - Hanging with Goofy after "running" a 5K in a Navy Sport Kilt - And with Stitch (a fav) after a shower and change into a Navy NWU kilt - Formal Night with Amy (yes I am in the photo) I decided to do the full Monty since I doubt most people would notice see the fly plaid let alone care. This is a my Kathy Lare Tank in Lamont modern - Used a clan badge with my Navy rank on it for the plaid pin from Alexis Malcolm. The sporran is a custom "rat" sporran that I had done out of nutria hide - Hanging with the main Mouse - With Miss Mouse on Semi-formal night in a USA 5 yard Dress Gordon - Back with the Goof -

    My people were mainland European Celts. The Germanic variety, they did not wear kilts simply because they were not evolved enough yet. I feel I am simply finishing the job.

    A Levi's kilt would be awesome- any chance you'll be making more?
