Re: Black Friday Sale anywhere?

Most of the traders that make quality or accurate items do it as a business and we don't make much profit to the point that when you work out an hourly rate its well below the minimum wage. It's better to save up and buy well made and researched gear than buy cheap imported stuff. If you don't alrea...

Re: What was worn when Highland Dress was banned?

RLS based some of his stories on what happened but I wouldn't put much faith in any references to clothing and culture. People did alter clothing but maybe not to avoid the law as the law was difficult to enforce as it was. no police and those who did judge had little faith in the banning order henc...

Re: What was worn when Highland Dress was banned?

As you rightly say Highland clothing and tartan were banned. However overnight people were not going to change their cloths and so for sometime and certainly in the more remote Highlands people continues to wear what they had been wearing for the previous 250 years or so. Before the '45 and after th...

They have been making things up. The SK has dress regs but no mention of style or types of leather. If ECWS has dress regs I've never seen them and they would no doubt be different for the RA and KA. Some regts. in both SK and ECWS have their own dress regs. Some regts. have their own style of footw...

Re: Late/non-payments

Small claims can be done online now I think. I wouldn't bother trying to sell the debt as you won't get much. I visit those who owe me money if it gets long winded. If it's a trader name them publically.

I'm of the opinion that all Section 1 re-enactment guns come under the same basic application rules as those used by gun clubs. As far as I know they have to get approval or sponsorship from the club and prove they are trained before they get their Section 1 cert. There are way too many people out t...

Re: research / general query for sellers / traders

It depends what you want, there isn't one web page for everything from every period. If you are in a group its best to ask them where to get good items from, but ask the seller for information as well as there is a lot of inaccurate junk out there.
