Just got word that I had the winning bid (pics below). Turpin tells me it's Rose Hunting. It apparently has never been used (basting still intact) and comes with a fur sporran and belt. No word on the weight, but it's wool is from Pringle Mills of Inverness and is labeled Made in Scotland. :ditto:

This shows straps and pleating

Formal sporran looks good. Just hope it's not Acryli-Beast

I've spent the last four days pretending I wasn't jonesing for it. Now I'm out of the closet - I can't wait till it gets here. B) B) :lol: B) :woot:

Maybe you should buy a lotto ticket now. :unsure:

Just one though, cause the lottery is a tax upon the stupid.

I'll probably never win the lotto because I've never bought a ticket (got a couple of instant game tickets for Christmas once, that's why I say probably).

I buy a $1 Powerball ticket every six months or so. The way I figure it, the hour or so entertainment I get daydreaming about what I would do with the money if I win is worth the $1 every now and again. Of course, you can daydream without buying a ticket, but then you can't rightly justify it.

Back on topic...looks like a nice kilt. You'll have to let us know what it's like when it arrives.

McFarkus got that outfit at an amazing price, really. The sporran alone, as a formal, Made-in-Scotland item would retail for nortwards of $225. The kilt, from the descriptions, appears to be an 11-oz. (52 inch waist, 81 inches long at waistband, assume 7 inches per pleat plus over and under aprons, etc. etc.) The seller says the whole thing weighs 2.5 pounds. Even so It'll make a good 3 season kilt.

Now McFarkas will have to move some straps and buckles.....
