P.S. Most of the lasses are more interested in what is underneath the Kilt and I am not talking about yer legs.

Yeah, so be sure to wear some quality shoes and socks.

That's what you meant, right?

I too thought the itch factor would drive me nuts but, since the first day I put my kilt on there has yet to be any kind of discomfort from the wool. They comb it so well that it feels more like cotton on the skin.

As for the white legs, mine also are pale. Look more like I'm a ghost from the knees down but I don't let it bother me any.

Lord knows I get enough positive comments from the lasses to bolster my ego up far enough that the few rude comments I get just kinda go in one ear and out the other.

I'm actually getting the chance to wear it to school tomorrow so it'll be a whole new experience for my classmates. It's the last day of this module and only thing going on is finals. Practicals are all out of the way (thankfully) so the teacher gave us permission to wear street clothes. Heh, I think I scared him when I asked if that meant what we were most comfy in. laugh.gif

I've let it go by for a few days, but curiosity finally got the best of me, (I think my nickname probably should be "Pandora")... So since I'm here, you know how us women are... hard not to give our opinions.. wink.gif Anyway, here in Tennessee, I haven't noticed too many men wearing Kilts around, actually none, but I think they do look pretty handsome.

Don't fret over it
MEN IN KILTS ARE HOT!!!! tongue.gif That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it! thumbs_up.gif

Well in times past in England and even today in Japan, pale skin is something to be desired, so don't worry!

now...get back to your ladies room! biggrin.gif

Going to the Maryland Renaissance Festival this weekend. It is their Celtic weekend and yes, I will be kilted. biggrin.gif

It is interesting that when you talk about Men and Kilts, the lasses can not keep away.

I peeped!!!!!! Men in kilts do turn a woman's head. wink.gif Around here where I live, that is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Maybe one day, I'll be able to travel over the big pond and get an eyefull! wink.gif

Have fun Madadh at the Renaissance Festival. Sounds like a fun time to me!

Madadh, I hope you have a wonderful time, I wish I could come, it sounds lovely.

We have a highland gathering in the south of the state next month, that will be something to look forward to.

maggie, even in Scotland you'll be hard pressed to see kilts worn casually. while the trend is increasing all over the world, trousers still dominate in the western world.

In many other countries unbifurcated garments are the norm, such as India, south east Asia etc.

Here in Tasmania I am one of only two or three in the State who wear kilts outside of "special events" or Pipe Bands, guys don;t know what they are missing!

As far as turning lassies heads, I don't get that a lot, besides, I'm 52 and my wife wouldn't like it anyway angel_not.gif

I am really excited to for out some family history!!! biggrin.gif On my dad's side of the family his mother's maiden name was Keith, so it looks like my ancestry has scottish blood in it. So does that mean I can claim the clan Keith as my clan? If it does then I would really like to get a Tartan and wear it all the time but only if I can. Does anyone know or can they help me on this? BTW: why are kilts so expensive?? Wow, $384.00 for a kilt?

Has anybody worn a utilikilt? They look like they would be durable but not nearly as comfortable as a wool or poly/viscose one. I've looked at Bear's website and Utilikilts' website and can't decide which way I'd like to go. Any thoughts?

Two, sometimes 3 things go into the cost. A) Labour intensive to make. cool.gif Wool costs money and there's a few yards of it in a typical kilt. C) Registered tartans add an additional cost to the material.

Well, it was initial sticker shock that prompted me to write that. I have seen kilts on the web but I think the true value is in actually being able to touch the fabric and see the kilt right in front of you. I would spend the money for one and I have been looking at the utilikilts and I think they look good.

You might want to look into a Sportkilt, too.

also, there is a website/forum about kilts that's very informative, from what I've looked over so far. it's X Marks the Scot

there is an entire section in the forum dedicated to discussing different brands of kilts.
