I’ve decided I want a kilt. No, I need a kilt.
I’ve actually been toying around with the idea for a couple of years, but it always gets back-burnered for some reason. Probably because there isn’t a convenient Kilts-R-Us store where I can just go and be instantly gratified.
No, instead I need to take measurements, order one, and wait.
I’m not very good at waiting.
At the moment I’m somewhat torn between a cargo/utility type kilt and a tartan. Both are viable options that can look good:
And I am certain that I want the more modern fitting of the kilt (like those pictured) with it sitting at my hips/waist, not the traditional high riding style over the belly button.
The trouble with an all tartan look is that I want pockets. And daily wearability. Not to work (you silly geese!) but after work, to the bar, bombing around on weekends, etc.
Yeah, just like I made fetch happen, I wanna make kilts happen.
But slouchier. Maybe with the socks not as high.
Kilted Bros in Cleveland actually makes a cool hybrid kilt– part utility, part tartan. And I think I may get it. You can choose your colors and they’ll make it for you. Here’s an example:
I like the pop of color under the black. And it has snaps and leather belt closures, pockets, etc.
I’m thinking it could be fun! Like shorts only breezier. And eye-catching. Because, let’s face it, if you wear a kilt you’re wanting to be noticed. Plus there are those other benefits- like when you’re at a bar…..
The key to successfully wearing a kilt is in the boots, socks and shirt. (They’re always good w/o) but the boots and socks have to be the right style, color and length (socks). remember to take your harness into consideration as well. I think kilts are like tattoos. You rarely stop at one. My fave is the 1st
Is the hipster waxed moustache mandatory with the kilt?
I think kilts look cool with no shirt or with a white wife-beater tank. I have a hard time with the knee socks and boots though. They seem so ‘heavy’ for the ‘breeziness’ of a kilt.
But I think kilts wearing people are always looking great either they wear shirts or not. But yeah without shirts they look cool and also sexy:p
