    I myself wear kilts pretty much exclusively unless I'm at work because they won't let me

    1. traditional Scottish kilt in my family tartan (MacEwan) made of heavy wool. not fun on a hot day.
    2. black canvas Utilikilt, carpenter model. very useful, not as stylish, has odd symmetrical pleats.
    3. homemade summer kilt made of lightweight cotton in Marpat. no pockets, very light, wonderful for Texas summers.

    I'm English with some Irish ancestry so I have an Irish tartan somewhere but I don't wear it. I married a Scots woman who's father was a Highlander and part of the Farquharson clan - he welcomed me into the family and invited me to wear the family tartan.

    So I've a medium weight kilt in the Farquharson Modern tartan, and I've also got an Olive Survival Utilikilt.

    So I was reading up on kilts in both this thread and some info from that corsets thread and it has sparked my interest. I think I want a utilikilt. lol

    Sounds funny to say, but it seriously sounds like some great freedom. Who wears them often? Anyone besides Jockeys? I remember at the MA get-together Gustav had one on but I didn't really inquire. lol. Are they really that comfortable and functional? What kind of looks do you get from people? Any other info that is a kilt FAQ must?

    I wish I had the "b*lls" to wear mine more often. Surprisingly in Scotland one can get a lot of flack for wearing a kilt - especially if it isn't a traditional tartan one.

    I have a strong urge to wear mine to work tomorrow

    1. yes. once you wear one, you'll never want to put pants on again.
    2. all kinds of looks, plus all sorts of comments ranging from: "are you gay?" to "that kilt is sexy" (totally serious, Scout's Honor!)
    3. if you choose to go "au natural" beneath the kilt, don't call it "commando". in proper terms, it is "regimental"
    4. kilts are not for those who are not secure in their masculinity, especially on windy days when you are going regimental.
    5. if some smartass asks what is worn under the kilt, an appropriate response is "well, it's definitely seen a lot of action, but it's not WORN... still in perfect working order"
    6. many kilts don't have pockets, so be prepared to carry a purse. (or sporran if you wanna be traditional) see number 4.

    I have a few, although my tartans don't get worn much during the late spring/summer (they could since I've moved north, but it's habit at this point). My everyday kilts are utilikilts (originals) but I've been eyeing the survivor utilikilt. (I looked at the mocker, but I'm pretty sure that wouldn't fly at the office).

    I wear Mactavish Dress (sometimes called Thompson Blue) on any occasion I can. I find that the only problem with wearing a kilt is that I tend to feel like I want to drink a ton! It makes me feel like I can throw a car over a building for some reason. LOL.

    My favorite response to the question "what are you wearing under there?" depends on who's asking and how they ask. If it is the smartass that jockeys mentioned above (and more often than not it is) I like this response (to be uttered with eye contact and a grin):

    "Your mother's lipstick."

    If it is a pretty girl, I like this one:

    "A blue ribbon for first prize."
