Strome 16oz Tartan Fabric, sold by the metre, 138cm wide

Modern Gow Heavy Weight Tartan. This name is of Gaelic origin and comes from gobha, meaning a “smith”. It also takes the form of Magobhann (MacGowan), purely an occupational surname, the work of the smith being common in all clans. People of the name are now claimed as septs of Clan Macpherson and to have had connection with Badenoch and the Clan Chattan countryside. At the battle of the North Inch of Perth in 1396, Hal o’ the Wynd, a Perth smith, took the place of one of the combatants who was ill. After the battle he went north and settled near the Clan Chattan lands.

WORKMANSHIP: The quality of this garment is first class, including the tailored lining, hanger loops, waist button, matching up of pattern etc. The overall hang, not to mention the glorious 'swirl', makes it a dream to wear.
