A Military Hunting Stewart joins my collection

Recommended Posts

I got this old military kilt from eBay a while ago with the intention of wearing it in the winter. My old What Price Glory Gordon Highlander kilt was never returned to me from my ex-wife. At any rate I got this for a song and it came with kilt extenders that I don’t need. With the recent weight loss it is one of the kilts that actually fits without adjustments. I am trying it today for the first time with a pair of Argyll hose that Kilted Cole sent up as they did not fit him just to see if these work with the Hunting Stewart tartan. I think this kilt will see lots of wear in the colder months. The label inside is faded to the point where I can not read it so idea of the provenance of the garment.

Thanks, I think I need to look for more military kilts for the winter.

Looks great.  I was just admiring this tartan yesterday, wondering how it would look as a kilt and there it is.   Nice effect of the yellow and red on the pleats, and an interesting find.  Perhaps the mystery label enhances the mystique.

It does, I would like to know which regiment it was from originally, as there are a few that use this tartan, but I don't think I'll ever find that out. I'm just glad that it is military weight tartan.
