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.
