  1. Greetings. Why do we wear p@nt$? That is a question for which I have no answer. And that is why I decided to take the plunge. Of course, there were all the highlanders whom I knew in the Canadian army. Many were not Scottish, but were nonetheless proud to wear a kilt. The highlanders commanded the most attention on the parade square, every time. Of course a band full of pipes blaring at 120db each helps to get you noticed as well. However, I am not Scottish (gasp) nor have I ever been in a highland regiment (almost). Being Canadian, tartan patterns are nothing new to me. I can identify the tartan patterns of my province, the Maple Leaf national tartan, and even some of the more popular ones like Black Watch. But being familiar with and heavily influenced by Scottish-Canadian culture is not a sufficient reason for some random Canadian with no Scotch or Irish background to go galavanting in a kilt. So you still ask why. Let's dig a little deeper... Throughout my life, I have been quite active. In the outdoors and in the gym. Through all these activities, I've had to deal with the issue of discomfort caused by the seams of various p@nt$. When moving, the seam can be pulled tight, like a strangulation cord around your more sensitive areas. Then one day it hit me: Kilts don't have seams that lower your testosterone. Indeed, there were studies that found the wearing of kilts to be likely to produce higher levels of fertility in men. Of course, that could be due to the fact that many more women were now approaching them because they were wearing kilts! So I took the plunge. I have not yet worn any kilt. I ordered an entry level kilt that looked appropriate for some experimentation in the area of weight lifting. In particular, the deadlift and the squat. Right now I am in the extreme contemplation zone. The time between the moment of decision and the moment of action. On the day the kilt arrives, I will probably inspect it, make sure it fits, and then try to do my next work out with it. In this period of contemplation there are questions: Will this thing fit? Will I look foolish? Will the kilt live up to expectations? Even worse, what will happen to me when I put on the kilt? Will I become a different person? Will I be forever changed, converted to a kiltie? Or will I throw it down in disappointment? If you're interested, I'll be back next week with my answer.
  2. Hey, new here. My name's Christian, I'm a 20 year old film student from Michigan. Have lots of cats. Stuff like that. I've never worn a kilt, but I've recently had an urge to go for it. Something about it is pretty awesome, and I think I could pull it off. I have no Celtic ancestry of any significance(I don't think 1/16 Irish counts), but as far as I can tell, it doesn't matter. It's irrelevant, but I'm 1/4 Norwegian, 1/4 Polish, maybe 1/8 German and then it breaks down into 1/16ths. I live in Michigan, so I understand there's one manufacturer, Got Kilt, in the area. But I wanted to ask if somebody would be able to help me in finding one that works when I've had no experience buying a kilt. What do I need to look for, and all that. I have a while until buying, I mean to lose weight this summer, so I'd rather not buy it and then not be able to wear the thing. So no rush. Not sure if I'd want a utilikilt, or a tartan one. The former would be for more casual use, the latter for more important functions. But yeah, no rush, I'll figure it out.

    Greetings Brothers!

    As a proud man of Scots/Irish decent, I have wanted a kilt for most of my adult life. About a year and a half ago one of best friends who is kilted 90% of the time, sent me a kilt that he had ordered for himself and they double shipped it. He offered to send it back, but when they told him to keep it, he sent it straight to me and I have been hooked ever since. I now own 3 kilts. 1 traditional kilt in the Hunting Stewart tartan, 1 black utility kilt with blue flame material in the pleats hand made by Starr Kilts in NC. And now an Olive drab utility kilt. I love the freedom a kilt gives you as well as the attention! I am proud to be a new member of this brotherhood and will do my best to further it's cause!
