    I'm betting on the ladies' curiosity factor...

    It's the wee bit that you really have to worry about in a kilt.

    The 'Irish national tartan' has a long and distinguished history

    :lol::lol::lol:

    ...and it's 'County Clare', unless you mean the one in Wisconsin

    Naw, the kilt is not a thing here. Your Patrick's day has been a lie all these years, buddy. Best to stick to trousers from now on.

    And I'll put the misspelling of Clare down to auto-correct.

    I believe American culture is Cargo-Pants and not Kilts, so you don't really need to wear one or worry about it really.

    SAHB are an interesting band to bring up in this thread (and a great band!), since while they represent something about Glasgow that I can still recognise today, they were quite happy to use all of the kilts n' bagpipes imagery on "Anthem". They're also a good example of being able to wear whatever you like if you have enough swagger to pull it off!

    Absolutely true. Alex always seemed to have a great understanding of visuals and showbiz. (The SAHB came after his stint with "Hair") I think its great to see so many clips of the band on youtube: some are funny, some are pretty subversive...

    And as a keen historian, I'm sure he would have known all about the origins of Scotlands national dress.

    Why settle for a domestic cargo kilt that is only fit for home and town use when you can have a tactical kilt. And not just any tactical kit, but one from 5.11, the preferred brand of would-be operators and commandos everywhere.

    Forget kilts, to be properly authentic it should be a belted plaid. Wrap a few yards of tartan fabric around your middle and then put a belt around it and hope it all stays in place. For those who cannot cope with kilts or plaids then there is always the fallback attire - tartan trews.:lol:

    ^^^^^Hardeep is as Scottish as me. Go to a local kilt hire shop and wear one to the wedding and just join in. As long as you are gallus enough to carry it off nobody will bat an eyelid at you....

    For a wedding? If the Groom requested it of everyone? Sure, why not. I've worn worse. I'll save you all the horror of the fishnets photo from when I went to see The Rocky Horror Picture Show. :D

    It's made me think though...if I ever find a lass crazy enough to marry me, I'm going to request that all the blokes dress up in traditional Yorkshire attire. :lol:

    I am not Scottish but the only thing between me and wearing a kilt for formal occasions is my wife
