The dress uniform was worn when soldiers left the barracks for visiting civilians or meeting people. The glengarry was worn instead of the feather bonnet, and a cane was carried. ╩Most cartes de visites, like this photo, showed soldiers in this order of dress. ╩The doublet is scarlet with yellow collar and gauntlet cuffs. ╩The buttons and Tiger badges are of brass. ╩White piping traces the front edge and the edges of the Inverness skirts and false pocket flaps. ╩The white leather waist-belt has no pouches or straps attached to it.
The kilt was worn in most orders of dress and came with a plaid which cannot be seen easily. ╩It is attached to the back of his left shoulder and hangs down, the lower part being attached to his waist. ╩The sporran is the usual rank and file type for the Gordons. ╩Little can be seen of the black and red hose with red garter ribbons.
