Thanks Bear for the information. I really like the Xmarksthescot site. It's encouraging, along with the posts here. I will get one someday...it's just a matter of setting priorities, and right now buying a kilt is not high on the list. I'm glad to know that there is so much information available, though.

Bear do you have vest's too?

No. I've never before been asked for a vest.
It's more of a formal item than I've been making so far. I am heading in a more formal path, though. I've started making wool kilts, as well as the washable/dryable poly/viscose kilts.

Well, I still want to get one! I told my wife today that a SportKilt would make a nice Christmas present. She said she already has things in mind. sad.gif Guess I'll just have to add it to the list of not-so-important-to-get-right-away stuff.

She doesn't think I'd wear it, either.

Avonlea22,

Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and get one on your own. If we let our wives control our toys, or interest we would never have anything to play with. biggrin.gif

I put my kilt on for the first-time this past weekend. I did pick the hottest and muggiest day of the summer up here in New England to do so.

While I was warm (toasted) around the edges, I enjoyed the experience. I am looking forward to the NH Highland Games, now that I will be properly dressed to enjoy the occasion.

I haven't worn pants since January 5th, 2003.
I can tell you from personal experience and from what other guys have told me, a kilt is much healthier than pants!
I've had guys tell me of ailments just going away a week after they started wearing their kilts full time.
I think some of it is physical benefit and a lot of it is psychological. You just feel better wearing a kilt! You notice women looking at you much more often and that helps your confidence. (You don't walk in a kilt; you strut.) Your mood is better, so you feel better. That is half the battle in keeping healthy.
I haven't had a cold for over a year and I used to get them at least a couple of times each spring and fall!

I have to concur with Annabelle on this one - men in kilts, in the words of a friend of mine, "look better than a Snickers bar after a two-week diet"!! I saw a man with a kilt (and a red beard, at that) at a RenFair this summer - I could have easily lost more than my wits wink.gif - well, okay, maybe only in my imagination, but that's what it's there for! If I had not been with a friend, I might have been tempted to 'flip the skirt' just for a peek jawdrop.gif

I tend to wear my kilt as much as possible. Only times I am not in it is when wearing my chef uniform for work & school.
As Bear has already stated, you get ALOT more looks from the women folk which is a major confidence booster. In all the time I spend in my kilt, I always feel alot happier than any other time. My anger is alot slower to ignite and I tend to have a very fast temper normally.
There is no way in God's green earth I'd ever go back to jeans if given the choice. I just wish that work and school would allow me to wear the kilt with my chef's jacket and all but, I understand the hazards of the kitchen so I must digress and follow the rules like everyone else.

I think guys who wear kilts are extreamly hot!...most women are attracted to men they think might be from another country....I guess it's the mystery of it all...look at Ewoen McGreggor or Sean Connery...He's like 70 or 80 years old and women still fall all over themselves for him...even young women love him! go for it if you haven't already....go ahead and show those sexy knee's! thumbs_up.gif

I wouldn't dare without "permission". smile.gif Our financial situation just doesn't allow it at the moment. I'll just keep wishing.

Not true! tongue.gif

First off, I should introduce myself...*drum roll*...I'm Avonlea22's wife. Now that ya'll won't think some weirdo is responding, lol, I have to defend myself. wink.gif

Yes, Brian told me that he wanted a kilt for Christmas. However, we'd already decided on a certain limit for spending this year, and the kilt would blow it out of the water! Second, let's say I *was* thinking about it as a present. A present is supposed to be a SURPRISE, right? So of course I'd make like I wasn't going to get it for him, right? tongue.gif

Geez honey, make me sound like a horrible wife! wink.gif
