Mingkee,
Here's some pics of our Robbie Burns Night celebrations this year.
http://bearkilts.com/burnsnight2004/burnsn...snight2004.html
Raphael is the Chinese guy in the photos and he wears his kilts every chance he gets. Nobody seems to mind. He even gets asked of he is Scottish!
Raphael is the guy who helped me move all the stuff down to the Bear Kilts store I opened today in Vancouver.
Celebrations start tomorrow afternoon and will blend into Kilts Night and well into the wee hours for the Granville stroll. It's gonna be a long night, folks!

While we were at Bethlehem over the weekend, we ran into Rocky, Kelly and crew, from USA Kilts http://www.usakilts.com/ . Besides being a fun bunch, they took the time to explain the differences in how a kilt is made, materials used and something that is a one size fits all is not the same as a custom made kilt.

Since Rocky and Kelly are long time listeners of CR, give them a buzz and see if they can take care of your needs. Let them know that you heard about them from CR.

A Shrule Egan, I wish I could have been there at Bethlehem, I would have loved to see the USAK display.

I didn't know that Rocky and Kelly are long time listeners of CR!

I recently had the privelege of providing a new sign for their new business premises (it's what I do).
I have a picture of it in my gallery.

That's not a very decent picture of all of us. It was getting hot and Kelly was busting her butt helping customers.

True but it gave her a few minutes to catch her breath and put a smile back on her face.

It did seem that we had that effect on a lot of the vendors that we stopped in to see. angel_not.gif angel_not.gif

You look fine to me Annabelle, nice to put a face to the name! I really liked the photo! It's of special interest to me since I have a reasonable investment in USAK! smile.gif

bear,
Just out of curiosity, the two gents wearing the same tartan (brown/blue/red), I didn't see that on your site, is it one you offer or did they get thier kilt elsewhere?

I came upon a gentleman at the Bethlhem Festival whom had a Gordon Tartan on. I asked him if he was a Gordon as he had the same Tartan on as I did. He told me his was a MacBuchanan tartan.
I smiled and told him I'd never heard of it but that was a Gordon Tartan he had on.
He looked at mine and then looked at his and commented "who's he had on?"

Then he asked me if I wore the same thing under mine as He wore under his?

Do you think he had too much that day?

He wasen't even sure the tartan he had on was even his.....what's with that?

Practice Safe Tartan!

That is the Anderson tartan. I made all those kilts, except Heather's, which is a family heirloom. Andrew and Ian are brothers, both in the Canadian Coast Guard.
From left to right, Vic, Heather, Andrew, Colin, and Ian.
To give you an idea of height of that crew, Andrew is 6' 7" tall. I'm about the same height as Vic.
It's hard to see but Vic's kilt is a Mexican motif kilt. It's all black, with an Aztec trim along the bottom. The sporran is hemp with a blocky Aztec bird design I liked.
Vic got bored and moved to Costa Rica for a change in weather and to try to spice up his life.

It took my 5 minutes to look for this topic, I just wanted to say that I am at school today, a University in NY USA. I am wearing my tan utilikilt, and boy do I look awesome in it. I walked over to the full length mirror, and just thought about how much I like wearin in because I look so good in it. Not like I am an Adonis or anything, it just really boosts my self-esteem. Besides that from the general population at the college, you would never have thought that these people have ever seen a kilt before, or that the fact of a man wearing a "skirt" is just wrong. It is like the looks that I get are the looks that you give a person who is wearing the "emperors new clothes." If more men knew how comfortable the kilt is, IMHO more men would where them. I am so comfortable, and so happy to be wearin this today I just had to say something!
