Saw a couple of kilts at Disneyland the other day. Appeared to be the utilikilts or similar.

On dogs, don't suggest that to Kassia, she's made Klingon, hot dog, soccer player and other outfits for our basset hounds. Kilts may be too much of a challenge. Since they're both females, I guess we woudna hae to wurry boot catching a sporran on an obstacle. You know like a sprinkler head in the grass.

Since there are festivals around the country and especially winding into full swing in the fall make sure you order your kilts now. I've posted a couple of sites that I find reasonable so enjoy and get your's ordered today!

Love my new kilt! just going to have to find a good blouse now!

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

Finally, a topic in which I can speak with some knowledge!
Mingkee,
Go for it. We have a Kilts Night in Vancouver every first Saturday of the month. After me, the most regular guy to show up is Chinese. Then a Mexican. I'm not Scottish, either. Get a tartan that is for anyone to wear, or just pick one you like.
Check out http://www.xmarksthescot.com/. It's the biggest and busiest kilt forum. There are tons of stories about guys worrying about their first time in a kilt.
I think it's easier to put on a kilt for the first time if it's a tartan kilt, rather than a plain coloured kilt. That way there's no chance of someone mistaking it for a woman's skirt.
Buy one, put it on, and walk out your door with attitude. It;s the only way to do it. Women love a man in a kilt. Men wish they had the guts to wear one.
I know. I've been wearing a kilt full time since January 5th, 2003.

Kilts are garments, not costumes!

    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

I can't stand going regimental.

Can you say "chafing"? I know you can.

I always wear underpants. If I'm at a competition and I've been wearing a kilt all day, the last thing I want is to face a long drive home with a raw "little scotsman".

tsargent62,
There's a guy hiking the Appalachian trail in one of my kilts. He let a bunch of us in on his secret against chafing. It's called Body Glide. I found some in Vancouver at a Runner's Store. It looks like an underarm deodorant stick and works perfectly! The hotter the weather gets, the better it works!
I'm thinking of adding it to my site.

I've found the best answer to the common question "What do you wear under that?" is simply to reply "Why, my hose, flashings, and ghillies of course!"  Well, unless I'm asked in a flirty nature by the ladies.  Then, it's a simple "Only what the good Lord graced me with".  laugh.gif

My favourite is, "How warm are your hands?"

While some are talking about bargain kilts, I was wondering if anybody has a source for cheap kids kilts. My 10 yr old twin grandsons would love to kilt up but I can't see spending $100 or more apiece for a garment that they will only have the opportunity to wear several times before they outgrow it. While browsing the other night I'm sure I saw a site that advertised $39 boys kilts but like a fool or the forgetful old man that I'm becoming, I didn't bookmark it and haven't been able to find it.

The difference between double and single width tartan is that double width can be split and only takes half as much to make a kilt

High Plains Drifter,
I sell kid's kilts for $60.00 Canadian but you might also look at SportKilts.
In fact, check out a bunch of casual kilt suppliers from one page at my Compare Kilts page.

Sorry for all the posts in a row but I just found this thread and as you can imagine, a kiltmaker has to stick his nose in here!

I've always wanted to wear a kilt. I'm of Irish heritage, and I'm under the impression that it was really only the Scottish that wore kilts, but what the heck. I just can't see spending the money to buy a kilt that I might just wear a few times a year, if that. I think the only opportunities I'd have is at Highland games or Ren fairs.

Avonlea22,
I wear a kilt everyday, all day, and have for over a year and a half. I wore it while working in a lumber yard!
The kilt is also the National costume of Ireland. Check out the Irish Kilt Club at:
http://www.somebody.to/irishkiltclub.htm
There's a lot of good info there about Irish Kilts and some cool pics.
My kilts start at $150.00 Canadian. ($115.00 US), they're machine washable, and I've got Irish kilts.
Every guy that buys his first kilt says the same thing after two days of wearing it, "Why didn't anyone tell me kilts were so comfortable? I've wasted (age) years in pants!"
(And the attention from women is a socialogical phenomenon! Someone ought to write a paper!)
If you think I'm just trying to sell kilts, check out:
http://www.xmarksthescot.com/
All the guys there will tell you the same story.
