  1. When they do send you please let me know.
  2. Thought I'd add the group photo from a special Tartan Tuesday, David and Anna were in from Victoria for a wedding and asked for a kilt night, we were only to happy to oblige. It was a great night and I can't remember a better time out honestly.
  3. We are having a second Tartan Tuesday this month in honour of Macman's visit to Toronto, at his request we will be at The Caledonian tonight July 25th. Looking forward to seeing you all there. If you are in Toronto and want to join in please let me know here or on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/events/579401932449686/

  5. This last Tuesday was our monthly Tartan Tuesday kilt night. We decided to try out The Feathers Pub as they are 100% accessible and they offer a gluten free menu. We had a good night and the staff and patrons were great. Here is the group shot from the night.
  6. Carl It looks great with the new jacket and waistcoat, well done.
  7. This was the outfit for today, we had a memorial to go to for an elder in the church I work at, Bea was a wonderful woman who did much for the community in Toronto starting an Out of the Cold program to get people a place to sleep and the churches on the hill food bank which helps feed those same people. Her smile and laughter are missed already she was truly one of a kind. I decided on the black barathea argyll as the tweed was simply too hot, this was also the first time I've ever worn a semi-dress sporran, this one belonged to Vanessa's Grandfather and is from Nicholl Brothers.
  8. This was taken before the rain yesterday, I had planned on wearing this outfit for Tartan Tuesday, I thought as it was June the 6th, the 73rd Anniversary of the D-Day landings that the Royal Naval Association tartan would be appropriate. We did get caught in an absolute deluge which caused a migraine. I changed as soon as we got home but was unable to make it to Tartan Tuesday last night. We rescheduled it for the 13th as there was only Nathan and myself confirmed.
  9. Welcome to the Brotherhood, I know what you mean about shorts, I never wear them. I think it comes from riding a motorcycle, and yes a kilt is different from shorts, not sure why.
  10. It was on Discovery channel. Not a bad mini series. I'll probably watch it again at some point.
  11. Glad to be some inspiration. Well done on the tartan design.
  12. Thanks FJR, and Tribal Wolf you would be most welcome.
  13. Has it really been 3 years? To everyone who has made Tartan Tuesday what it has become, I wanted to say thank you all each and everyone who has attended our little kilt night, be it once or if you are a regular, you have made me proud to be a part of this.
  14. So I am getting ready for the Tartan Tuesday 3rd Anniversary tonight and thought I would up my outfit a bit. I just got this sporran, dated 1911, and the kilt pin is one I've been looking for, for about a decade and just got last month.
  15. When I first got my Royal Naval Association kilt in honour of my Uncle McMurdo (Murdy) I wanted to get a Scottish Agate Anchor Pin. The problem has been that everyone I've seen on eBay has gone over hundreds of dollars completely out of my budget. Recently I decided to look on a different vintage site and found one suitable at a reasonable price. My only problem now was that the seller would only ship to the United States. I was lucky in that another member of xmarks graciously agreed to ship it to Canada for me. Now that I have the pin in place I will take a trip up to Uncle Murdy's final resting place. Thanks to Kilted Cole for all his help, it means the world to me. Without further ado from me, here are the photos.
