Options is the name of the game. Nothing beats a quality handmade 16 oz worsted wool tartan kilt but you pay big money for that and you aren't likely to wear it on a daily basis. The poly blend and cotton kilts have the advantage of being machine washable with cotton requiring more ironing than poly blends. Since I wear kilts on a daily basis being machine washable is a big priority.

My kilts range form a Sport Kilt to a Lochcarron.

The SK is for woodworking and cleaning the garage.

I have a denim kilt I wear for the dirty jobs. I got the fabric on sale dirt cheap. I think it cost me all of $20 to make it so if it gets beat up it's no big thing.

Back from my day at the Maryland reniasance Festival, it was their Scotish Celtic weekend. A great day to wear the kilt. I do have one question, I did not know that there were highland belly dancers? But there were a few young ladies there moving their tartans in... wub.gif

That's new to me, so else did you see at the festival, I'd love to know more about it!

It is nice wearing a kilt around lots of others who are also kilted, you don't feel like an oddity so much!

I have no idea on the authenticity of Highlander belly dancing but one of the gals I do ceili dancing with is also part of a middle eastern dance troupe. There's a song, I think on Strictly Time, that we dance the Broadswords to and it's got an extended intro and there's a stong middle eastern influence in it . She'd always get this smile on her face, do this little scintillating move, drop into a bow and then off she went doing Scottish. Always made me smile and impressed me.

The Caber toss was a lot of fun. The reniasance festival had all of the thinks you would expect . It is loosely based in the time of Henry VIII. There was jousting, Bards, Music, Taverns, Tavern girls, armour, swords, dancing girls, clothing, extreme bodices, did I mention the girls?


The dancers had most of the middle eastern markings that you would expect, the clan shield as a tatoo in the small of one's back was fascinating. And their moves to the Badhran and the pipes jawdrop.gif inlove.gif

Well, it's nice of you to join us!

So everyone...I think I've narrowed my kilt choices down to Bear Kilts and USA Kilts. I'll make my final decision by October 1st. (that's the deadline my wife gave me...Just in case she needed to order one for me as a surprise. smile.gif) USAK will be updating their web site and tartan offerings within the next week, and that's what I'll base my final decision on. I'm getting so excited about owning my first kilt!

Brian, it's time I shared with you a little known fact about kilts, it's a real problem.

you see, the kiltmakers use a tartan that is impregnated with a chemical substance of unknown origin. All I know is that this chemical reacts in most men, it may be hormonal, not sure, but the effect is that when you put the kilt on there is an immediate feeling of euphoria, you feel "high".

What is worse, is that you body begins to get addicted to wearing the kilt and taking it off is very difficult.
Long time kilt wearers are even know to wear it to bed - it just cannot come off.

Worst of all is that this effect, this addiction, begins early and is far more severe with you first kilt.
The body slowly grows accustomed to the drug, and as with most drugs, it takes a larger "hit" to get the same "high" as time goes on.

My advise is be careful, very very careful. smile.gif
