A bunch of the messages from the Rialto and elsewhere that Wolf mentions
can be found in this file in the CLOTHING section of my Florilegium:
cl-Scotland-msg  (125K)  5/21/99    Clothing of Scotland. folding of

These two files might also be of interest:
cl-Scot-fem-art   (14K)  7/ 2/96    Scottish women's clothing.
cl-Scot-male-art  (18K)  6/20/96    Scottish men's clothing.

The Florilegium is at:
