Another Milestone


This weathered Gordon box pleated beauty above, made for Turpin Ballard (proprietor of Thorfinn's Sporrans), represents another Milestone in my kiltmaking carier. It's the 200th kilt I have made! It was only September 27th of last year that I posted on this blog of my 100th kilt. At that time, I listed out all 100 tartans (and a few non-tartans) of the kilts I had made. I didn't anticipate that such a list would generate much interest, but a lot of you seem to have gotten a kick out of seeing the variety in the list (or finding where your tartan stood on the list, I suppose).

So, in keeping with that tradition, here is the second "century" of my kilts. As was the case with the first 100, the great majority of these have been box pleated kilts made from heavy weight cloth. There were a few five yard knife pleated kilts and a couple of lady's skirts thrown into the mix, but most of these were four yard box pleaters.

Hey dude, congrats on the milestone!

Maybe by the time you reach 300 there'll be a Ryan Ross Commemorative and an Oglethorpe tartan on the list. :)

Matt,

Congratulations! I'm proud to have kilt 101 and almost a year later find it still an exceptional piece of work.

That's an amazing number of kilts! May this avocation never become tiresome . . . I look forward to ordering a few more kilts from you.

Thanks for number 135 :)
