Kilts

Any guys here wear the kilt? Where? When?

I married DW in my formal kilt rig -- I also wear my dress kilt to the orchestra -- and regularly wear my casual kilts in the late spring to early fall (Northeast USA).

I just got an Inverness Cape to go with the rig (think of Sherlock Holmes -- "Quick, Watson, the game's afoot" -- recreation suited only to monopeds).

Kilts must get a little drafty on a motorcycle.

Here in the pacific NW it's not unusual to see guys in Utilikilts. They are made from the same stuff that carharts are made from and fairly rugged. I have to say... a hunky guy in one of these gets my attention

Only one time while visiting Scotland, that was enough.

Ed - if you're curious about the motorcycle thing - watch the mockumentary titled Call Me.
