The Look goes on... - Page 151

post #2251 of 2264

You've got quite a lot of time to think about it, but the quicker the better for the travel arrangements. 

 

The Paris meet-up, Saturday 28 January 2017

 

As usual we will probably meet in a Pub at noon (well we call them Café here) then visit some interesting areas. It will be during the winter sales, so a bit of shopping is possible.

 

PM me if you are interested. 

 

Cheers

C.

Cordings v Bruar - does anyone notice any subtle differences between English and Scottish country wear? Just interested.

Only have a couple Bruar knits and don't see much of a difference between theirs and Cordings' ... but Cordings' tweed jackets are really amazing. Working cuffs, beautiful tweeds, and I guess proportions that suit me well.

Not got much experience of Scottish country myself but I think of it as being more broadly greenish than the yellowish of English country, and perhaps with more heather-toned touches (reds, purples) than in English country. Just an impression, the Scottish lovat green probably encapsulates it.

(excluding the obvious tartan/plaid)

And while we are at it, favourite tartan anyone? I think Dress Gordon looks good on a woman

Having gone to a Catholic parochial school where the girls wore said tartan-patterned skirts,  I fully endorse your statement about Dress Gordon.  

That being said, I dig a simple Blackwatch tartan.

The closest I ever came to wearing a kilt was Farquharson Modern, which seems pleasantly simple for a tartan

I already mentioned on the M to S thread this lovely little book - The Scottish Tartans - with exquisite drawings, that i bought in 1980 during my only trip to scotland.

 

 

i confess my love for the Fraser tartan, one of the reasons why i' m very fond of my Baracutas.

Now i suppose it is not the taste of everyone, but Tartans are like colors a matter of personal preference.

I have a hacking jacket from House of Bruar. I got it for £40 at the charity shop, good as new biggrin.gif

Round here Bruar is thought of as exclusively for country toffs (the sort that wear pink trousers, yellow shoes, green sweater, mauve shirt, and blue jacket), so I love to subvert their clobber.

Lads, seriously, jackets with quilting? They look inside-out to me!

Always been partial to my own family tartan.



My daughter had a skirt in that. I certainly have a scarf.

I also rather like the Edinburgh University tartan.



Campbell of Argyll is quite nice too.

I think that P.o.W check is derived from a tartan ? I always like the light blue overcheck on pale grey.

 

I got a Lyle and Scott lambswool scarf a couple of years ago,its a blue tartan of their design,I just looked on their website and they have different designs now,one is based on Black Watch which I also think looks good.

 

Also on the LS website is an article about wearing to much navy blue (Covskin mentioned this a while back) apparently you need to buy Lyle and Scott clothes and socks in different colours to break the navy up, its amazing.

Funny, those folk you describe sound like a more temperate-weathered version of the privileged Nantucket set. Technicolor nightmare. My retinas are receding in fear of having such colors burned into them forever.
Question: does your Bruar jacket have working cuffs? Good charity shop score, by the way!
