What to Wear?

"What can I wear?" is usually a plaintive cry more associated with the ladies than with a macho Highlander, but newcomers to Highland dress (and even some of the oldtimers) may find the following suggestions from 6th generation Edinburgh company Kinloch Anderson, of great value. Bear in mind that they have been advisers to the British Royal family for many decades and know a thing or two about Highland dress sense and etiquette.

Oviously one doesn't have to stick to these suggestions rigidly and there's plenty room for individuality but - just like a cooking recipe - whilst you can alter some of the minor ingredients to your own taste, drastic changes to the main components may result in your creation ending up in the fashion bin.
