I've got both types of those kilts. The material used for the Craftsmen is very heavy, and probably in my view best suited for work in an outdoor environment. It has plenty of pockets, and can be washed at very high temperatures if necessary to get it clean. The Gardener is probably my favourite kilt, a medium weight material, washable at normal temperatures, and ok, in my view, for smart casual wear, but still tough enough for gardening and the like if required.

Oh. I did that yesterday and the only thing I saw was across the Pond. But this morning I see outlets here. Thanks. (Although the closest is 500 miles away, I do make it to those locations from time to time.)

I thought that 500 miles was local to you guys. :)
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

While it is not that far as things go it still is 500 miles! :D We have a lot of land in between big cities and it is not all jammed up like Briton and Europe. We do have some areas like that but they tend to be on the coasts. The US and Canada are quite unique in the we are well landed.

It's still an 8-10 hour ride, even on a freeway (i.e. motorway).

Much easier to buy on-line and drink beer until it comes.
Courage, conviction, nerve, verve, dash, panache, guts, nuts, balls, gall, élan, stones, whatever. Get some and get skirted.

As near as I could tell they don't do online orders. But maybe one of the stores that carries their products does.
