        Quite some time ago, I had come across the tartan pattern that Stanton had made and filed it away for a future when I had the time and funds to get some made and have a proper McCandlish/McCandless kilt. In 2014, I finally got my act together and surveyed my family (McCandless of Butler, PA) to see what they wanted. Enough of us wanted kilts and accessories that we were able to order an entire bolt of fabric and have kilts and some other things made.

        The fabric was ordered through Rocky Roeger from USAKilts. I believe he used Martin Mills to produce it, but I’m not positive. Once the fabric was in, those of us who wanted items made by Rocky paid him to have it done. The extended family ended up ordering 7 kilts, several dresses, an entire box of ties and bowties, and a variety of other accessories.

        If anyone else out there wants to do something similar, working with Rocky was excellent, and I’d be more than happy to share the story of how this all came together and what pitfalls exist (and how we tried to avoid them).

        That would be great, and is just what this topic is for. šŸ™‚

        I’m in process of getting some stuff made myself, and will be documenting that, too.
