I always thought that I wanted to see what I would look like in a kilt. I made the mistake of telling my big brother, and he decided to "arrange" it for me. He took an OLD picture of me (high school photo from 82) and cut and pasted it onto a picture of a guy in a kilt. I was so heart broken after seeing the results that I decided that I would NEVER put on an actual kilt! sad.gif

I have posted the pic below. Please don't rib me too hard over it. I HATE it and wonder if I should post it at all...! unsure.gif

Wizard, paper dolls never do a guy justice so go to a festival with a pair of shorts on and slip a kilt on over and then take a peek at yourself!
You may be pleasantly surprised.

A great company that has yet to be mentioned is USAKilts. You can find them at USAKilts.com. They have kilts in wool, wool blends, & cotton/poly blends. Kilts generally go for $80-$180, and Rocky (the proprietor) will make it in just about any tartan or solid. One variable is the material cost - if you want a pricey tartan, it will cost you more. I have 2 kilts from them, and my wife has one in a matching tartan.

As for the wind issue, a loaded sporran helps. Kilt pins will keep the front flap from opening up on a windy day. But in the winter, there's nothing like a nice, heavy wool to keep the back from blowing up.

On the pleats, I would definitely go full hand width, if you can afford it (more material). They hang and move better.

I love my kilts, wear them any opportunity I get. They are the most comfortable things that I own.

BTW - 2 words on chafing - Gold Bond. It's never failed me. biggrin.gif

As for wearing shorts beneath the kilt, consider bicycle shorts. If it's cool enough to wear them, try it. It'll certainly maintain your dignity!

Camchak, give them a try and we expect you to model your kilt for all of us girls!
I am the unofficial official here to represent all females that all memebers must have at least one kilt! And they must wear them to all celticreadio activities, right girls?
