That’s right… Time to break out your kilt!
Congress declared April 6 to be National Tartan Day. It’s a day to celebrate Scottish heritage and to wear your tartan (plaid, typically in a family or clan pattern). I’d wear my kilt to work, except my boss’s boss wouldn’t approve. Now I’m not Scottish, but I do have a tartan… this one is called “American Eagle”, and it’s a “district” tartan for the United States. My formal kilt is done up in this.
They celebrate other “national dress” days at work… someday I’ll convince them to celebrate national Tartan Day too.

I ran down what was supposedly a tartan pattern for our family about 15 years ago but never did got hold of fabric or any items using it. Perhaps I need to do some genealogy research again and do that... Or not. "Time; ask me for anything but time!" N. Bonaparte(?).

If you still know which tartan you can have it custom woven through Scotweb.
That's wher I ordered my kilt and jacket.
