B.Lower attire = Here I take "liberties" He was a Scot/Enlish & there is a ref. that a Piper played during "recruitment" & a "parade". So I often wear a KILT or Trews (early 1800s period pattern)

2. NWC/HBC Employee- !820-1850s in the PNW.
A. Clothing = According to my "station" in society (upper middle class & position in the NWC/HBC ( upper level) Note- you dressed basicly as you would "back east". If in the field then "field gear"
