    Re: Balmoral not acceptable?

    Personally, I don't get the whole hat thing. What has it to do with music? And we don't wear a military uniform, we wear the highland equivalent of a suit. How many people wear a hat with a suit these days?

    And what about the madness of wearing a hat indoors?

        Of course, Colin is bang on. This stuff is really silly.

        Just to add more fuel to the fire: Glenn Brown just won the Senior Piobaireachd at Oban wearing a powder-blue balmoral. Pipes|drums has a nice pic of him wearing it, holding the silverware. I'm sure he was in Pipe Sergeant's spot for the next day's march to the games, probably wearing the same headgear.
