    Maybe Nuri can enlighten us, but I don't think Scotsmen generally wear kilts. Don't they just wear them at special occasions, like weddings or Hogmanay?

    You are probably right, Tsuyoiko - but having said that, I did know a Scotsman (this was in the 1980s and '90s) who used to wear a kilt everyday as his general wear. I think it's not usual... but it does happen!

    LOL! I love that second link you posted, Comfortable Man (and lol @ your name! - I assume you are Enlightened!)

    "The Men in skirts movement is currently at the same stage as the women in trousers movement was 50 years ago."
    That made me laugh... and also to think, actually; I'd never considered things that way before! ^^

    "Is It Just About Unbifurcated Clothing?"

    "Unbifurcated" is such a lovely word! Thank you for bringing it to my attention! I want to find an opportunity to use it as soon as possible, now!

    But, though I laugh, there is a good point about the comfort aspect. Skirts are cooler to wear in the hot weather, too, which is probably why skirts/sarongs/robes are more generally worn in warmer countries. (?) As for the kilt, maybe it allows for greater freedom of movement when leaping over the rugged Scottish mountainsides? Or maybe there is a "warmth factor" as well as a "chill factor" (XD), in the same way that mittens are warmer than gloves because all your fingers are together and warm each other...? Oh my... I don't think I'm going to continue down that road... O_o

    Cool yup

    Comfortable Man (and lol @ your name! - I assume you are Enlightened!)
    I'm comfortable for the last 24 years, and very comfortable for the last 2 years. Which means that I started wearing sarongs most of the time in 1982 but mainly inside and around my house. Very comfortable means I've been wearing sarongs etc. and real actual men's skirts outside my home and in public for the last 2 years. I own no trousers at all anymore. All were converted to denim skirts. With a males genitalia, a crotch is simply nothing short of an edged cloth knife slicing vertically into my private areas. Now I have no crotch and am a "Comfortable Man"
    A few more links for skirted men AND a bunch of links of places for heterosexual MASCULINE MEN to buy masculine skirts.

    Cool Links

    I hope I didnt kill this thread with all those links. By the way, PittsburghKilts.com is no longer active. I think he moved to a smaller house. No room to sew.

    What fascinating forums. I only opened the first 4 or 5 links, but I noticed quite a long post by a man who had been wearing a skirt while strolling down New Walk. That is a pedestrianised area in my city, where I walk each day at lunch time - I'll have to keep my eyes open for "Ash" and give him a wave if I see him!

    Without question, men CAN and SHOULD wear skirts in public. I have worn them myself at home and consider them extremely comfortable. If women can wear trousers, then men can wear skirts / dresse etc. As William Shakespeare once said, "To Thine Own Self Be True"

    It is interesting to note that the word "kilt" has been stretched to include several varieties of miniskirts. Why should a man be so timid as to be compelled to label his skirt as a "kilt" when everyone else knows that it isn't one? One thing is for certain, that being that adding a "kilt" designation makes the skirt much more expensive. Why are men so cowardly when women feel free to shop in the men's departments for pants in their size? Likewise, women do not have a problem referring to pants as pants, quite unlike sexually insecure men who insist that their skirts are actually "kilts".

    That reminds me of a man who went to a talk show explaining that he prefered women's dresses because they were very comfortable and was fed up with people insulting him. While he had a point because of the comfort factor, I can't imagine a man wearing high heels just because women can wear trousers. There are certain things that must be used by women or by men depending on the case. Period.

    Skirts as in like women/girl skirts? No - they can but they will look gay - however if its part of traditional garment then yes. Such as in the case of fustanella - which is part of traditional dress of Albanian men

    Why not? Skirts look very comfortable , specially in summer time . If tradition can justify men wearing skirts let alone practical purposes like comfort and energy saving. If you are so worried about looking gay forget the traditional thing, you'll look gay to everyone else who is not familiar with that tradition anyways.

    Live and let live. I probably wouldn't find it attractive. However, a man in a kilt...purrrrrrrr...t'is a beautiful thing indeed!
