guys and ladies looks so cool with kilt during St Patrick Day Parade

I always dream to put it on
I saw some guys putting on utilikilt...

however, I have no courage to put it on
due to my race/heritage, putting kilt on looks really stupid among them

damn!!! I can't get rid of that fear/worry

There is a great company out of Atlanta that has your kilt made in Scotland and sent over here for under $200.00. The heavier the wool the more expensive. Let me know if you are interested as I have a new Dress Gordon Kilt coming and I CAN LET YOU KNOW ABOUT THE QUALITY. Let me know if you are interested in the phone number.

There is also a book you may want to read that is sold at most fairs called "So your going to wear a kilt". It's a hard back and explains many things too numerous to mention here in the book.

The store is called "Douglas House"
they are located in Marietta, Ga and their prices are very very reasonable.
1-877-513-8230
if you aren't sure which Tartan you should wear discuss it with Douglas who will most likely answere your call between 9-9 daily.
Good luck!

I actually got my husband to wear a kilt that I made myself. I made it from a cotton blend and it wears well. I could use wool because I'm allergic to it and it would have me in hives to handle it.

Trust me if my husband has the courage to wear one. (He's a redneck by the way) You shouldn't have a problem.

There are a couple of tartans that anyone could wear. There's the Caledonia tartan which is generic. There's also the Jacobite tartan; also generic. Neither is affiliated with any clan. Between the 2 I like the Caledonia. It's very nice.

How many times have you seen a white guy with an oriental tattoo? Plenty.

Go to a martial arts competition and count how many races of people are competing.

I don't think you should worry about it, man. There's nothing strange about people discovering and taking part in other cultures. smile.gif

Have no fear!. If you want to wear the kilt, just do it and damn the others. Everyone is going to have an opinion and if we were to back down from doing things that others don't look at as proper or backed down because someone, somehow felt offended by what we do, then none of us would be doing anything at all.

I live in a small Texas town and wear my kilt proudly. I remember going into the Wal-Mart here one evening after returning from the Texas Scottish Festival and, as I walked through the front doors by the registers, the place went totally quiet. lol
I never let that embarrass me or hinder me from wearing it.
Heck,I am a regular attendee of the Scarborough Faire Ren Fest, also held here in town, and have had many a photo taken or questions asked as well as phone numbers handed to me. laugh.gif

You'll find that most are more curious about the kilt and why you chose to wear it than are going to point and joke about it.

I'll surely get it once I changed my job
other than that, I may get working kilt as well
however, I'll surely put a shorts on inside
I am uncomfortable with nothing inside

Mingkee,

Wearing the kilt is easy.. just wrap it on. If you are looking for a tartan, there is a grand tartan for any American to wear. It is Red, White, and Blue and has been issued to all by Scotland. It is called the American Tartan. usaflag.gif

You will get use to going regimental with the kilt, just remember to take something along to protect your honor. Most ladies that would not think of asking a man with pants, have no objections to trying to raise the kilt. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Regimental is the only way to wear one IMHO. Although most find it amusing, I say it is actually a little more comfortable that way. As for others raising the kilt on those who wear one, your absolutely correct. laugh.gif laugh.gif
