Does any one who where I can get diced hose? I'm after the red and white ones. I think some of NA might wear them (Scots Regts).

We tried sourcing these for F&I stuff...all we could find were Pipe band suppliers(and ,Boy,do they cost the earth)...further reseach showed we couldn't find provenance for the knitted ones before the 1770's..still looking for red/white plaids of right size to cut up!!

Hi Steve
Ken's the man who knows about this, and I think he took out a second mortgage to buy his.
Doing Derby?

Found this on the web. Not necessarily perfect but cheap!
