Default Oil Barons Ball.....

Anyone going to the Oil Barons Ball tomorrow night or has been in the past? Got an invite to it and am unclear whether I have to wear black tie with the kilt????

In the words of the great Sean Connery, "Shurely Not...!!"

I'm sure it's not mandatory to wear a tartan boyskirt, trousers and dinner jacket should be fine ,

I'll have to have a look and see if I took my winged collar over. Anyone know where I could pick up a winged collar shirt and black bow tie???

sorry but that is appropriate attire for a piss up at a scotland footy match,

My pet hate is these ghillie shirts at weddings etc..

just doesnt fit with the occassion..

I wore a sherrifmuir jacket for my wedding. Really Really cool
