Donald Trump “may well place an order” for a Gordon tartan kilt after seeing Michael Gove sport one to the state banquet on Monday night.
The US President and the First Lady were apparently “very taken” with the environment secretary’s wears and could be considering an order.
Mr Gove, appearing before the Scottish Affairs Committee yesterday, said it was another example of the “successful trading relationship between the UK and America”.
He said: “I had an opportunity to say a few words to the president on Monday night.
“These occasions require people to wear evening dress. I had the opportunity to wear the kilt. It was very interesting that my wife was talking to the First Lady, who was very taken with that.
“I think the president may well be placing an order for a dress Gordon tartan.
“That is another example of a successful trading relationship between the UK and America that we have brokered.”
