......I was really hoping for something tartan in my stocking! Black Watch is my favorite and in the '50's, in my teens, I was an 'it girl' dressed to kill in a pair of trendy wool Black Watch tartan trews with little slits at the ankle. I saved forever to buy them and wore them until threadbare....often with a lovely navy duffel coat. Today they'd be classified as skinny pants or cigarette pants, narrow through the hip and thigh, tapered to just above the ankle. These above were online some months back, perhaps at Zara, along with the fabulous warm looking tartan duffel coat. Apparently neither item would fit in my little stocking hanging on the mantel Christmas Eve! However, I did find a soft brushed Black Watch flannel shirt for my DH - perhaps he'll share it with me - I could wear it around the house on chilly evenings.
