Re: Dresses marketed to both men and women

I might consider some of the asymmetric styles (which I normally don’t like) but the price is way to high.

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

As some of you may remember, my wife is not fond of skirts and even sometimes grumbles at me "wearing a kilt al the time" (which is an exaggeration). This Sunday we did our regular delivery of the service sheets then feigned home to prepare for the arrival of family in the evening. I simply swapped ...

Re: How old were you . . . . ?

I can't remember if I've written this elsewhere. I vaguely remember being interested in the girls' summer dresses whilst in primary school. and did once in my teens try on a dress of my mother's. Occasionally I would see a girl wearing something "interesting", and later I would see a female friend i...

Re: Here we go again...

I still have my STAR NX1000, 9-pin, Dot-matrix printer. It works if I have the correct connections on the back of the PC. I was able to find a box of ribbons for it. All is packed away - - somewhere...... ;) Uncle Al :mrgreen: :ugeek: :mrgreen: Wow! I remember using one of those (and also the IBM p...

Re: Interesting article about the origin of Mary Jane shoes

Back when I went to lots of meetings in Edinburgh, there was a young woman in one group about 6ft tall with feet as large as mine. She often wore a white Dr Marten Mary Jane that I would have like to try. I see DM no longer make them. A pity.

Re: Skirts to dresses

I once picked up a dress in the sale at Sainsburys. It was very comfortable but in the heatwave at the time, it was shorter than I was willing to go with bare legs. And MOH would have got really worried about me!

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

I'm a volunteer driver for a local group that provides chicken dinners to older people and families in need. Each Saturday for the last 7 weeks I have turned up in either my plain black Tartanista value kilt or a Union Kilts charcoal grey denim cargo kilt. Last week in the latter I got several compl...

Re: Are you using the remain in place rule to your advantage?

I have been wearing my black casual kilt a fair bit lately, often with tights as the weather is not too warm (10°C today with stiff breeze off the North Sea). Even went shopping in said gear with MOH who raised no objection. I need to iron my charcoal denim cargo kilt for variety. Incidentally, I no...

Re: Sightings "in the wild"

I've had several outings in the past couple of weeks in my new charcoal denim Indie kilt from Union Kilts: £12.50 in the closing down sale. On a reasonably warm day (6-8°C) I wear knee length kilt socks but a couple of times I've resorted to 200 denier thermal tights, brr! The proprietor of Thmoson'...

Re: Skirts and health?

Some years ago there was an article in I believe the Scottish Guardian or so. It revered to research executed by a Dutch doctor with the Erasmus Universiteit who had done research on the effects of skirt wearing, or as it was for Scotland kilt wearing, and indicated that such would be much healthie...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

This past week, I had to journey south to Hertfordshire for a 24 hour conference. I set off early Monday morning, in the usual black casual kilt and long socks. Breakfast at the Purdey Lodge on the A1 (I can recommend it!), where a quick change into black 200 denier tights took place as it was a bit...

Re: UnionKilts

Then again, maybe not! all my sizes gone, including the Hill Walking kilt, which I thought about ordering a while back but never got around to it!

Ah well, I hope you are able to enjoy retirement despite health problems.

Re: UnionKilts

Thanks Richard. I ordered a kilt today, but in view of the possible demise, I'll probably go back and order some other stuff in the next few days. I came today as a first time customer to order a kilt, based on positive reviews from members here, so let us hope you find a buyer to help this excellen...
