I have always had a thing for men in kilts, or anything to that effect. Perhaps it was Mel Gibson who did it for me in 'Braveheart', or Russell Crowe in 'Gladiator'. Regardless of how it came about, I don't think this 'thing' is going anywhere anytime soon.
I am marrying a man who will be wearing a kilt in a few months time. I like what the kilt means to him, and in turn, what it means to his family. In wearing the kilt, he is proudly wearing for all the world to see, his heritage and his history and his connection to family. How could I not love and respect that? by bakba
I have always thought of it as strange! Yet I don't mind the gear that Muslim men wear -I don't think that looks stupid at all!
I think the kilt is just a ridiculous piece of clothing -hope I am not offending anyone here!
I'm not sure what you mean Finy, and I don't know what its purpose is. Perhaps it's purely decorative. I agree, I don't think there is anything strange about men in kilts. However, I did laugh my head off at a blog entry detailing a 2012 men's fashion show where the men wore dresses. Google it to see what I mean.
There is a difference between choice of fashion and beating someone up. Also, a kilt is part of Scottish culture, so I don't see why a Scotsman shouldn't wear one. If they aren't Scottish, I would find it a bit odd that they decide to wear one, but there is nothing wrong with it.
No, not at all! Looks stupid, IMO. What's the 'advantage' of it for a man?
I get chaffed to kingdom come if I wear skirts or dresses, so live in Bermuda Shorts, Slacks, Slacks Suits & Short Culottes Summer Outfits.
Do men get chaffed in kilts, particularly in our hot & humid climate? Does the hitting of the 'sporran' hurt the body?
50/50 . . . . . Other half was MC at a wedding and the groom and all wore kilts, so he wore one in his clan tartan. Looked very scrummy. Then there's the never to be unseen horror of my visit to Edinburgh Castle. Well, let me just say . . you have NO idea how high those sentries can lift their knees. *arghhhhhhhhhh*
