Hi all! I just joined up today as I came across this site whilst shopping for cantle makers. I live in the Highlands of Scotland and I make full mask and traditional style sporrans for a living! I'm also a vegetarian so all of my fur and leather is sourced from roadkill, deceased zoo animals and vintage shops. When I'm not sporran making I'm generally with one of the many animals and I also shoot weddings with my boyfriend who is a pro photographer. So how I have the time to be on here I don't really know... Anyway just joined because I love seeing how everyone wears their kilts around the world - the variations even here in Scotland are huge. Looking forward to saying hi to everyone
My fiance and I are planning a summer wedding for next year, and he'd like to wear a kilt. I'm totally game for this- he HATES formalwear, but I love how he looks in it. Time for compromises! Simple, right? Complication 1: Neither of us like the tartans available (and he has only a smidge of Irish heritage, and little to no Scots), so we're looking for a plain black kilt in a fabric that will work with a tux jacket. The closest I've found so far is the UK's Mocker. I'd LOVE any other suggestions. I know UK used to make a tux kilt, but he dislikes it and would never wear it again. Seeing as my dress is <$150, neither of us wants a $700 kilt he'd never wear again.... halp? Complication 2: Everything I've seen so far shows formal tartans worn with black tie jackets or collared 'modern traditional,' tux jackets. My fiance prefers the mandarin collars- anyone seen a kilt tux put together with one? I'm mildly concerned that it will look slapdash and like it doesn't flow together. Specific jacket types I've looked at: Complication 3: Footwear. I'm planning to buy him boots for Father's Day, but there's a big difference between shoes appropriate for a tux and boots he'd normally wear. We have no desire for a super-formal wedding- we're doing a morning outdoor wedding in June, my dress has little to no train and a short veil, to give you an idea of the formality level otherwise. I'd really love feedback and ideas from anyone who's done this, or just is more creative than me.
