I was able to find everything I needed to know about Scottish tartans at the
following Website:

The information to be found there includes all kinds of details - how the
Tartans are woven, their history, when and how they are worn as well as a
lot of Clan lore...

There are cities in Japan that have "official" tartans, so it seems that it
might be a personal matter as to whether you wear the McConnell tartan or
McDonald tartan. I am a McConnell but I wear the McDonald tartan mainly
because I belong to Clan Donald but also because I didn't know that there
a McConnell tartan.

Would you be so kind as to tell me where you found a McConnell tartan?
