  • Tartan frockery on parade as Scotland takes on Italy

    November 17, 2007

    Scotland's tartan army has taken to the streets and pubs of Glasgow today in hugely optimistic and probably over-confident anticipation of our national football team winning today’s match against world champions, Italy.

    It fair warms the cockles of this Scottish lassie’s heart to see so many saltires, kilts and tartan on parade across the land, and with St Andrew's Day approaching on 30 November, it's time to get kitted out in some fetching tartan frockery.

    The Frockery has a good selection of Scottish tartans, tweeds and knitwear in stock, so . For the ladies, how about a tartan party dress, or perhaps this vintage A-line tartan maxi skirt? If traditional tweeds are more your scene, why not check out our selection of Harris tweed items, like this Argyll kilt jacket; or you may prefer to sport a Country Life tweed hat. For sophisticated and understated elegance, however, this Austin Reed tartan skirt will be hard to beat, just like Italy!

    The Frockery wishes the Scotland team the very best of luck today (you'll need it, boys).

    Slainte mhath!
