    Since I made this post I have had my initiation and I'm working on memorizing my cat right now. I still get emails saying I have received replies to this thread, and I've been enjoying my lessons on kilts!

    I'm a very private person & two types of people are always welcome; friends & family & the pizza delivery guy. And since I consider all my Brothers friends & family, they don't have to show up with a pizza to gain entry.

    I'm from the McNally clan mainly and couple more. Place close attention to the Freemason tartan. Every color was used in a ascertain building. We all know which I think.

    If you are speaking of the Freemason Universal Tartan, the Utah product is to represent differing organizations in the Masonic family.

    There is a lecture with tells content of said building and what it contains and the colors used in it and the tabard are exactly the same.

    I'm not entirely sure of what you mean, but as I was responsible for having this particular tartan registered, I am fairly familiar with its genesis.

    Additionally, there is no lecture regarding the Freemasons Universal Tartan.

    I know that but its hard to explain without just saying it. Guess we just forget about it.

    Soo, just say it. There is no ritualistic significance to the Freemasons Univeral Tartan.

    The Freemason Universal Tartan does not reference colours from any degree, but from colours attributed to various Masonuc bodies. See http://www.utahgrandlodge.org/freemasons-universal-tartan.html

    As for you wearing a dress, we don't judge :)

    A nice, informative article. Thanks for sharing Brother. I learn more about Masonry on this forum that I do in lodge. Until this discussion started on the Freemason Universal Tartan started I didn't even know that one existed.

    Dress just means "what you are wearing" if you are wearing jeans and a t shirt, that is how you are "dressed".

    As for kilts (skirts) it was a men's garment (still is) BEFORE it was ever a women's garment. Just like pants were a men's garment first.

    I dont get offended easily about kilt jokes. I participate in the jokes and laugh it off. I also give em back just as well as I take em so if you wanna throw jokes, you better able to take em too. Especially if I EVER hear you mispeak something that could be twisted against you. I will twist if for you and use it against you. :)

    Having said that, you may want to exercise caution with "dress" remarks, some of the kilt types are tough folks and dont take too kindly to that.
