    Year in a kilt

    So it has been over a year now that i have been wearing the kilts 24/7. I was very self conscious of what people would say at first, but now i have gotten over that. I loo forward to gatherings and parties and being the only one in kilts. I used to be the guy in the back that usually didn’t say much, now i get questions about the kilt and get pulled into conversations i never used to. It is awesome to get noticed. A couple weeks ago i got stopped by a guy in Target and was asked if i was wearing a Utilikilt. I said i was and he said it looked awesome, then he asked if i would mind if he got his sons to see the kilt. I ended up talking to him, his wife and 3 boys for about an hour. We talked about my being embarrassed at first and growing to like being in the kilts and the acceptance of my friends and family. He told me he was a high school teacher and asked it i could come talk to his classed about the kilts and being accepted for who i was and what i decided to wear. I was lucky enough to have some time off i needed to use up so i spent 3 days talking to classes about the kilts and how i had started wearing them and gotten acceptance. It was awesome to go in talk to a bunch of people about being in the kilts and hear how i was able to show that it is ok to be different than those around you and kilts are awesome. I want to say thank you to all my friends that have encouraged me to stay in the kilts and all the positive comments i have had on here that have inspired me to stay in the kilts.

    Adventures in rebirth

    A whole long time ago, I figured it would be great to wear a kilt. Not long after that, I built a place where kilted folks can go to talk about almost anything, and wear the kilt as they want. That was more than 10 years ago now. As I work to bring this great Brotherhood into the modern era of technology, I find myself wishing I had something to bang my head against. The number of things that can and have cause me a headache are innumerable. It is like trying to push a rope uphill. On the upside, I am sitting here in my Brotherhood of the Kilt tartan kilt from Got Kilt, knowing that I will get this crazy finished. I am also looking to add a great many features to the site, including blogging and areas for clans / societies / festivals who do not currently have their own site. All these things will come soon. Be Strong. Put a Kilt On. -kt
  8. In the past few weeks I have heard some very odd comments regarding my kilt. I have been called "awesome", "cool", "retro" and a few other fairly normal things. One guy said "that guy is wearing a camo skirt. That is so gangsta". I'm not sure what he meant by that, but I'll take it as a compliment. The kilt in question was a vietnam-era jungle camo UT Kilt.

    Don't be afraid to be "that guy" at work. be strong. put a kilt on.
  10. In hindsight I believe there is no sillier sight than a kiltie working a plunger. Ever seen the shake weight commercials? imagine that, soaking wet staring a bathroom sink down. Not fun. *****do not repost without a link to this page***** Get your own copy of Kiltology here! www.amazon.com
  11. Just wondering if anyone else here is into motorcycles. Racing, touring, restoring, collecting, or just enjoying. I've currently got possession of about 7 complete motorcycles worth of parts, most are even assembled and functioning. I don't find much to be as relaxing as tearing into one for several hours, whether to repair, maintain, or just modify. Here's my current stable: 2007 Triumph Sprint ST - I like my bikes like I like my women: naked. 1992 Honda Z50 - This one was purchased as a basket case, and is in the process of undergoing a "resto-mod". It now has a 125cc engine, and future plans include making it look presentable, 12" wheels, extended swing arm, and upgraded forks. 1987 Yamaha Venture - This one is a bit of a rat, and is also naked. This bike is a bit of a survivor, having been wrecked and / or dropped by me nearly countless times while racking up over 100k miles (a little over 30k at my hand). Also happens to double as my tow rig. Future plans include Vmax heads/cams, fabricating a leading link fork setup, and the addition of a sidecar. 1986 Yamaha Venture - This was the original tug for my sidecar setup, but I was riding the bike detached last June and went down at about 60 mph on the highway. Apparently the suspension was a bit worn after 86k miles (who knows how many with the car attached). It's been pieced back together and is currently for sale (sans sidecar). 2007 Hyosung GV650 - This was my first bike, purchased new in 2007. It survived me, as well as my brother (his first bike as well), and is soon to be on to my kilt-wearing cousin as his first bike. Closest to the camera in this pic. 2005 Hyosung GT650 - This bike was received in parts batches for free, and I just happened to end up with enough parts to put a full bike together. It's in a bit of transition as I plan to make a hardtail chopper out of it... some day. (artist's rendering) 2006 Hyosung GV650 - One of those projects I picked up cheap from a friend who couldn't follow through on his grand plans. Frankly, with the design and quality of the welds on the frame modifications, it's for everyone's best that he never had it on the road. However, it does have a title and usable neck, so maybe something fun will come out of it one of these days. 2006 (?) Hyosung GV650 - This bike was purchased originally to be my brother's first bike, and it turned out there was not much usable on it. Now it's just a pile of parts in the garage. 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) 8)
  12. Well, I am new here, so please don't get too rough... I usually wear my kilts traditional, and with gillie brogues. What can I say, I learned to wear them while stationed in Holy Loch Scotland in the early 1990's. But I have wore modern kilts (Utilikilts, and other variants) with Sandals, and lace-up combat boots both, as well as a style similar to Doc Martens. I have seen and liked the Pipers Shoes that are the Buckle style shoe, but I like lugged soles for daily wear. I Know some do not like the buckle style, as they are also known as "Mary Jane's" which people think are girls shoes... I ran across a similar buckle style Brogue shoe, that I liked, but did not come in my size, so I turned to a well known boot maker in Mexico, that has made me several pairs of Custom Cowboy boots, and asked him to take this style of shoe and build me a pair in my shoe size. This is the picture that I sent to him, and he is in the process of making me a pair. But I thought it might be interesting to get your thoughts before the finished product arrives... So now is where I brace myself for the slams.... maybe... What I like about these shoes, is that they have the Brogue look and feel, but they have the chunky Boot feel to them, and they are able to show off the kilt hose like traditional gillies. Let me know what you think! Garry in Alaska

  16. Looking for reviews on any Irish restaurants in Cleveland area. Any special events coming up.
  17. Hello Group, As a man who's worn kilts for over 5 years now, I've been a lurker on a number of forums for quite a while; The Brotherhood being my favorite, I've officially decided to become active in it as it is by far the most diverse, accommodating, friendly, and open group out there, and in these forums I feel I could participate and be open in asking questions and sharing my views. Having stated that I've been a follower of other forums I've always been fascinated by the extreme in which some men "kilt" - in particular I’m referencing threads on other forums about the level of dress that a man can achieve when wearing a kilt: festival wear, sporty wear, highland games dress, daywear, smart daywear, semi-formal, white-tie, all-in all there are threads that list about 10 differing levels of formality or appropriateness available to men dressing in a kilt. Just starting out I was amazed at the different levels that so many men seems to participate in when wearing the kilt: the sheer number of accessories it would take to accomplish 8-10 varying levels of formality around just one kilt, and the amount of money it would take to complete these looks as well as the level of effort of obtaining and maintaining them. I have to admit I continually had to revisit these discussions and wonder if I really should be kilting because after all - if I'm running to the bank doesn't that mean I should dress in "dressy daywear"? I can't pull off a pith helmet or a Glengarry with ribbons. I'm frugal - how can I really get my money’s-worth out of a blue velvet Sheffimuir jacket and vest? Buckle Brogues? Some men have it, but I'd look like a grown man wearing my sister's Mary Janes, it’s just not my style… Then it finally hit me - yes I am a little slow on the uptake sometimes - I don't have 10 varying levels of dress when I am not wearing a kilt, why do I need to subscribe to the mentality that I needed to retain some levels of formality that I consider somewhat antiquated when I do wear one? Before I go further - I am not criticizing those that men that do subscribe to this and get great joy from doing so - instead I am saying that for myself and possibly a great number of other men the standard in which we dress in a kilt can follow what we do and how we live today. After a sigh of relief that I was not required to invest in diced hose, a doublet, any hats with feathers or rosettes, walking sticks or a jabot, I realized that as a middle-aged, middle-income man living in the Western US that I have approximately 3 levels of dress: 1. Casual (Jean/Shorts and T-Shirt/Polo equivalent) - Could be anything from a kilt and nothing else when painting the house or cutting the grass to a kilt with a t-shirt or polo. The kilt itself could be traditional or a utility kilt. Sneakers, boots, or sandals would be the footwear of choice and the option to wear hose or not, and if so they might be pushed down. Belts and sporrans if worn could be simple or unique. 2. Business casual (Jeans/Dress p@nt$ and Polo/Dress-Shirt equivalent) - Tartan or non-tartan kilt, dressier shoes or boots - hose could still be pushed down with boots. A collared shirt would be the standard, a polo or an oxford, possibly with a sweater, vest, or open jacket without a tie, and a simple, matching belt and sporran if in a traditional kilt. 3.Dressy (Suit/Tux equivalent) - Dress shoes or ghillies, shirt, jacket and tie. At a dress event an Argyll would be sufficient to that of a tuxedo jacket. Transitioning from dressy to formal depends on the choice of jacket and tie as well as the shoes and accessories. I'd like to add the caveat that just because my level of dress is more casual that it's never sloppy; I'm a fastidious dresser - items are always neat, clean and pressed. Color is key and when I pull out a kilt it's a concerted effort to make sure that every detail has been paid attention to, accessories are appropriate and polished. Maybe it's because I'm in the West and standards are more relaxed, possibly it's because I'm American, could be that in my lifetime I don't see men putting on suits and ties because they have to run downtown to do their banking - nope, we're running to the local ATM and a visit to downtown isn't the same as it was in 1950s. Standards of dress have changed over the years and as a kilt wearer, (who does happen to believe that they are the preferable alternative to p@nt$ but they are just that - an alternative to p@nt$ and not a costume), I feel that I need to treat the remainder of my dress as such. I feel that I look better when the remainder of my clothes are appropriate to the setting or situation and I just happen to be wearing a kilt instead of shorts or jeans or p@nt$. I also counter that in a great number of locales a night at a play doesn't require a suit or tuxedo or that a dinner-date doesn't require a tie, so wearing a kilt shouldn't alter the remainder of your clothing selection for these events or any other. I just think that the days of dressing as your great, great grandfather would should he have worn a kilt when you wear a kilt is isn't for me - it's a different world and I think you can do the kilt justice, wear it well, and still be a current and sharp-dressed man. My goal here is not to ostracize anyone who has certain likes when wearing the kilt, anyone who is keen on broader options, who has a more historical approach to the kilt or who enjoys a huge spectrum of accessories and varying levels of formality, but instead I am looking for confirmation from others that wearing a kilt need not take so much time and effort and money, nor should dressing in one be a rigorous or rigid event - dress as you normally would, just swap out the kilt for a pair of p@nt$, own it, look sharp, and have fun. Anyone else feel the same?
