Dear Clan Folk,

With Tartan Day approaching, I wonder which ones y'all will be wearing.

Cruach Mor!
Jennifer

Good Morning Jennifer:

You know, that is a tough question...For me anyway.

Ofcourse, I am partial to the Thompson blue. However, I also love the Hunting. I was surprised to see how nice it looks on people.

I had occasion to visit the Scottish shop in Moultenboro, NH and saw a NEW tartan. The lady said it was a millennium pattern. The wool was from Locharron and it was absolutely beautiful. Though not a "family pattern," I would not mind owning a skirt like that one.

Lochcarron does excellent work.

In kinship

Joan(n)

While I have a kilt in the Modern Red, I love the Ancient.

Are there any others out there who prefer the Ancient?

Predictably the Dress Blue is quite popular among those that voted.

I want to apologize for forgetting to include the Stevenson tartan. Embarassed Is that what the 2 "other" votes were for?

It is a challenging choice, they are all so lovely Wink

Larry - I must admit the ancient didn't interest me much until I saw a real live kilt of the ancient in person . . . I think it makes a beautifully classic looking kilt!

Have a great Tartan Day everyone showing off our MacTavish and Stevenson Tartans!

aye,
Jennifer

Hi,

I like:
1. MacTavish Modern Red
2. Thompson Dress Blue
3. Hunting
4. Ancient

I chose to splurge and get sashes of the first three. I would also like to have a sash of the Ancient.

The "other" could refer to either the Stevenson tartan or the Thompson Grey tartan. I'm wearing the Hunting as I write this since it is April 6th.

Hi Friends,

All of our tartans are nice. I would be proud to wear any of them.

I prefer the Dress Blue Modern. My kilt is that one. Perhaps, if I should buy a second kilt, it would be the Red Modern.

In kinship,

Bill Thompson from Michigan.

I prefer the MacTavish Red modern and the Hunting tartans myself. The blue reminds me too much of the Carolina Tarheels, and being a Duke fan I just can't bring myself to like anything light blue HAHAHA.

Time to resurrect the poll for this year. Any additions? Or maybe a change of taste over last year? Very Happy

You can see samples of the clan tartans @ http://mysite.verizon.net/resrz8zf/clanmactavishseannachie/id24.html

I have to admit that I think the modern red will always be my favorite Cool

Slainte,
Jennifer

I like the MacTavish Modern Red but, like Charlie, can not figure out how to vote for it.
