    USA National Tartan Day 4/6/2018

    I wore a casual Royal Stewart sport kilt all day and enjoyed boiled crawfish at Rick's Crab Trap.
  2. Likewise, still nothing received here. @KT, Are you sure you sent them?
  3. I paid for an annual membership in November of last year. I have not received any membership materials. Have you stopped the benefits and sending the materials?

    Greetings from a first timer...

    Welcome aboard. I'm pretty new at kilts myself. I live in a flip-flop kind of town and haven't had an opportunity to dress up for anything in quite a while. That said, I go barefoot everywhere whether in a kilt or not. I only have a sport kilt and a utility kilt so far.

    Greetings from Louisiana

    Um. OK, I - an even newer member - will jump on the bandwagon and welcome a year-old introduction to the forum C'mon back Toastie! Here's hoping you still fit in your kilts after all that good southern cookin' (and eatin').

    Year in a kilt

    That is very cool! Young minds need to understand true diversity and learn how not to need "safe spaces".

    Thank you, Oh great Wisecracker! It's been a week for me in a kilt in the Redneck Riviera with nary a negative comment. Even the local yocals have given me positive comments. So I ordered a UT Kilt and look forward to all its pockets. I'm thinking I need some alternatives so I'm not wearing the same kilt every day, but dad gummit, here I am buying clothes again ! At least it'll be kilts from now on P.S. Is there any real $ benefit to membership here? I donated, but I've only seen a bunch of dead links so far . . . Not a big worry for me, but just wondering?

    Non Celt Kilt wearers

    Growing up, we were told we were Scots/Irish. Decades later, I got interested in tracing the Boyd line back to Scotland. I was only able to go back 4 or 5 generations (I'd have to double check) in the USA before losing the trail. I assume that happened when we crossed the pond. About the same distance on the maternal sides, so I'm going with "Not close - 3 to 5 generations". I took one of those DNA tests a couple of years ago, but haven't yet learned the lingo required to decipher the results. The summary says I'm British Isles: 39%, West and Central Europe: 34%, Scandinavia: 20%, Southeast Europe: 7%. I got interested in kilts when I began doing the research. But this is the first year I've actually bought and worn a kilt. Lovin' it so far!

    Year in a kilt

    That sounds like a great experience! I hope to have as good a story to relate at my 1-year milestone (364 days to go )

    The only rocks around here are imported and hot surfaces don't bother me anymore. I would probably not go barefoot all the time in AZ, though. Not with all those tire-piercing goad head burrs! (Or was that in the Mojave Desert - or both?)
  11. Greetings and Happy Thanksgiving to all! I've been kilt-curious for long time and was "Recently Enlightened" I bought a Sport Kilt and wore it out & about for the first time yesterday. Totally casual with a long-sleeve t-shirt and barefoot (I am always barefoot). I went to Sam's Club, Wal-Mart, and Winn-Dixie and, while there were a few double-takes, no negative comments or sneers. In fact as I was going back to my car, a lady shouted "I love your kilt - My husband is Scottish". That made my day and I expect to wear it when ever I go into town. I guess I'll need to get a couple more kilts, though. If all goes well, I hope to connect the dots across the pond with Clan Boyd and eventually get a formal outfit.
