Reply To: Draping the Great Kilt


But that’s the thing — clearly Jamie’s not wearing just one belt in the wedding episode because Claire very clearly takes his belt off and throws it aside … and Jamie’s kilt stays right where it was.

I did watch the video Glam posted, and if Jamie had been wearing his kilt the same way the man in the video was, it would have fallen when Claire took off the belt. In fact, you can see that Jamie isn’t wearing his belt that same way because it’s visible on the outside of the fold of his kilt in the back. So obviously he has something else holding it up. I just wondered what that “something else” is, and if it was included for historical accuracy or for other show-related reasons.
