  1. ( if you are seeing this on social media, please visit the entire post on kiltsrock.com ) what is your favorite kilt right now? Tastes and preferences change over time, cycling from kilt to kilt. which one is your "go-to" kilt now? Mine is my new Brotherhood of the Kilt tartan kilt by Got-Kilt. It just feels right. how about you?
  2. When looking at a sgain dubh, I highly suggest you save your hard-earned money and buy a quality sgain made by a reputable blade smith. If you are formally dressed, don't cheap out on a piece of mass-produced junk! You wouldn't wear a knock-off cheapie sporran with your hand-sewn heirloom-quality kilt, would you? I have been lucky in my sgains, having them made by many amazing blade smiths. My prized sgain is a custom-made blade from Sgains by Raptor. It is made of Red Ironbark which required special permits to obtain and a hand-made blade. I'm told the tree was about 2,000 years old. it is easily my favorite of all sgains I've ever had. It does not see much use as I know I can never replace it. It is just that amazing. Second in the image is a Damascus style blade, also by Raptor. It also has the heft and beauty of design as the blade previously described, and is #37. I love the simplicity of design which masks the strength of this blade. I do not recall who sent me the 3rd sgain, but it bears mention as the antler handle has petrified mammoth tusk as the blade. Another amazing sgain, but the blade is a little fragile so I rarely use this one. I have a few others, which I have not pictured as you can find cheap sgains all over the web, and I'll not get into those. Hope fully these examples of superior workmanship will help you see the value and beauty of a well-made sgain! Please share with others so they can see the beauty of a well made sgain!
  3. What is your favorite kilt accessory? is it a custom or special sporran? is it a sgain you found or had made? is it something else? I am torn between two. I have a custom BOTK sporran by Wyvern Leather Works and a custom sgain made from a 2000-year olf australian iron bark tree and hand-made blade from Raptor. what is your favorite kilt accessory?
  4. On the subject of traditional kilt-wearing theory. At the Brotherhood of the Kilt we accept ALL kilt-loving folks. While tradition says kilts should be worn a specific way, I will NOT stand for people belittling, disparaging or otherwise maligning other people here, members or not, regarding how they wear the kilt. We are NOT the Kilt police. I do encourage active discussions on different ways to wear the kilt, and suggestions for formal or semi-formal wear "corrections" but claiming anyone is more or less manly based on the cut or wear of their kilt is simply ridiculous. To those who dedicate their lives in trying to enforce traditional kilt wearing method, I ask this. Why are you not going after anyone wearing blue jeans if they are not some kind of factory worker, cowboy or miner? That is why blue jeans exists in their original version, loose and for workers. The evolution of the Blue Jeans as fashion staple vs. work clothes has a decent article on wikipedia, I suggest anyone who is going to get all pissy about someone wearing a kilt a little different read that, as I firmly believe the kilt is going through a similar process of changing from a limited-use garment by specific people to generally accepted clothing for the masses. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeans

    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

  21. What great stories do you have from your weekend? My kilted story comes not from the fireworks show, but from the hurricane that delayed them. I had a stillwater Blackwatch medium weight kilt on for the day, and it started pouring like mad. We got roughly 8 inches of rain over the span of the day. The gutters on my new house started backing up, clogged with pine needles again. I threw on my rain jacket ( which is not hurricane proof ) and ventured out. Ladder went on the house, up the ladder I went and the gutters were cleared in a glorious battle of man vs. nature. The rain soaked me to the bone. The wind did things with my kilt that would drive the ladies mad . In one spot the water played havok with the dirt, and I sank up to my knees in mud. It was a disaster. Once everything was cleared and the torrential downpour was directed away from the house, I began the process of cleaning up. I wrang about a quart of water from my kilt, and chucked it into the tub. My boots are STILL caked with mud and wet inside. The raincoat? Finally dry it has been relegated to the back of the closet in case every other rain protection garment fails, including a trashbag with holes in it. For the fireworks, I was off to Onset, MA to watch them with the kids. Mother Nature was at it again, blowing wind up my kilt like a crazed loon with a leaf blower before I left the house, so I went the safe route and opted for shorts. I had no plans to wear my kilt as a shirt that night. The show was great and the kids had a blast with family and friends. What kind of great fun did you have over the weekend?
