    Now that is gutsy

    If I were to wear a kilt I would make sure I had short hair or a beard. Or maybe both

    I have worn a kilt. I own a sporran. I have eaten haggis a number of times (it's not bad, really). But I doubt I was flying free underneath.

    Oh, I'm also not Scottish.

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    Methinks I like the lasses better.
    Myers bit of a tribute to Sean Connery.

    I'm Scottish on my Dad's side, but I'd never wear a kilt.
    Looks silly with cowboy wannabe boots and a (bald guy) leather biker wannabe hat.:oops:
    I prefer to look silly in 501s and dark T shirt.
    Thank for askin' though.:lol:

    Kilt is formalwear, in general.

    Yes, I would wear a kilt to an "event"

    I used to wear mine just doing the gardening. I'm a Scot, wearing a kilt is no big deal.

    Grimesinma, listen to Western Power. Don't do it. If you are Scottish, who are a Scotsman in a kilt, if you are not Scottish, you are just a nut in a skirt. As Western Power has pointed out, kilts are relatively new in terms of the country's history. Stick with your original thought and go in slacks. You will thank us for it after. If your future daughter-in-laws family think it will be a good idea for you to wear a kilt, let them give you one. Don't bring up the conversation that you considered wearing one. Eat haggis and drink scotch. You will truly be in touch with your roots then.

    My bagpipe instructor showed the class the dagger in his sock , and informed us that was for anyone who called his kilt a skirt

    I used to regularly wear a 'rain skirt' when hiking. Just a hefty bag with the bottom cut open. Already has it's own drawstring tie. Almost never commando. ;)

    Here's me and a friend hitching back to the AT from a tiny deep south Appalachian mountain town. Friend is pretty sure we're never getting a ride. Au contraire, ride came along quickly. Most people picking up hikers in trailhead areas want a story. I got stories.

    I only wore this wool blend kilt for ten days. After the initial VERY exposed feeling, it was extremely comfortable. But too warm, even in 60 deg temps. Always commando :eek:

    Five minutes before this was taken, we were having lunch in the diner behind us (not in picture). Had a Deliverance moment walking past the booths to the men's room. The silent stares from a group of manly-men roadworkers was just priceless.
