      PLEASE READ: TAMB is not closing!   10/12/2017

      Just to provide an update on the future of the Tartan Army Message Board. To be clear the board will not be closing and instead will be staying open and will hopefully go from strength to strength. Who Are We? We are a group of Scotland supporters who have varied skills and expertise, along with experience of  being involved in football and running football message boards. When we heard the TAMB faced closure, we contacted the old team with a detailed plan which involved financing and running the board. After speaking to the old team on a number of occasions they have allowed us to put our plan into action. While speaking to them and going on their experience and that of those before them, we have elected to keep our identity private, however rest assured we have the best intentions for the board and those on it. Our Plans. Our plan will involve a number of stages which we hope will not only keep the board going but help improve and rejuvenate it. Our first step will be to do a bit of a clean-up of the board. This will involve some downtime for a few hours where posting will be disabled. We plan to do this early next week, a full notice will be posted on the board then. Once that is completed we will be upgrading the current board platform, both behind the scenes and hopefully aesthetically too. There will be an ongoing process of board improvements which we hope you, the user will help us with, so you have a board you will enjoy We thank the old board team for all their hard work, dedication and their help during this handover and hope you will all help support our plans going forward.

What is the TA fashion polis' recommendation for footwear whilst wearing a kilt on tour?

I usually go for Timbies but this time I'm considering trainers as comfort is paramount. Personally I think it looks tacky as fuuck but each to their own, live and let live is my motto

I'm not one for judging others matchday attire, nor am I one to give a Donald Duck what others think of mine. My only worry with trainers while wearing the froak is that folk will think I'm a Weedgie

Adidas Sambas with a kilt fine for the football - but probably not acceptable for a wedding :lol:

Next question : kilt socks pulled up or down ?

Firstly what colour sambas are acceptable? I posses an emerald green pair and my kilt is the Ali Express of "Murray of Athol" tartan purchased from an establishment situated on Edinburghs Royal Mile

Secondly I have my kilt socks pulled all the way up, but, they have all shrunk in the wash so they look like they are rolled down

There are some things I would miss if the TAMB wasn't here. And some that I wouldn't.

Suede Addidas Samba's are probably a bit "smarter" / more "multi-use" than the classic black models ? :D

doesn't really bother me what others wear but I always wear cats because I have them and they are comfortable. trainers fine but socks have to be rolled down with both I think - just cos it looks better.

I'm actually a cat man too, my mistake in my op. My timbies when I'm in civvies going about my day to day business. They aren't for dribbling beery pish ow'er

Red suede sambas and red/navy hooped Aberdeen Umbro socks from 1998/99 season. 

Although that may change next year as I found a pair of red Adidas Haven in the cupboard the other day, assuming this years Christmas trainers have been bought early by the wife :rollsmile:

Steel toe capped wellies and a mini kilt held up with braces is my preferred combo. Can't say I have noticed any disparaging looks.
