Matt's family lives in Scotland

wedding party was this July!
Can you see the tartan he was wearing?
That is called Black Watch..it is a Scottish regiment tartan.
Do you know "regiment tartan"?
What he was wearing is quite a classic day/evening outfit.
Argyle jacket and tartan trews and waistcoat
.....often worn for formal and semi formal occasions there.
i asked him about Burberry check. and his answer was this.
"I think you mean Burberry? No, that is a check...not a tartan. The two are different"
real tartan is made by different layers of design laid on top of each other.
They signify an area or a clan or a military regiment.
Nowadays there are modern tartans made for fashion only.
In old days families came from a certain area...so the tartan told the name and the area.
This though was originally just because different areas used the local dye to colour their clothes...it wasn't really by design
of course we talked about many things.
once, he talked me about Shakespere
when we talked about "lamp of magic", he said to me.
Do you know the witches from the play Macbeth (William Shakepeare)?
When will we three meet again in thunder lightning and in raion...
Another little fact: We are going to the ballet to see Aladdin in December.....so I'll see a magic lamp
do you know the lamp of magic on Anne's guestbook? (*^_^*)
can you imagine a little about our chat?
