I bought a kilt online recently. Fits perfectly and came with belt and sporran. $30 for everything. Only issue is that it's not my tartan - it's Duncan and mine is Ross.

Is it just me, or is the headline a little creepy?

""It gives kilts a bad name," Jonny McLain..."

Toy up the crotch and you're to blame,
Laddie you give kilts a bad name!

I was looking for an Armagh county kilt last week, and apparently there's rules to county kilts and how you can get them, so $350 for one (that's not an obvious knock-off)...

I thought $150 for a utilikilt was pricey...

That's not a kilt, that's a Halloween costume.

Yeah. The, uh, Tartan patterns. They weren't actually associated with specific clans until plaid was mass produced in the Victorian Era.

"The patterns were simply different regional checked-cloth patterns, chosen by the wearer's preference - in the same way as people nowadays choose what colours and patterns they like in their clothing, without particular reference to propriety. It was not until the mid-nineteenth century that many patterns were created and artificially associated with Scottish clans, families, or institutions who were (or wished to be seen as) associated in some way with a Scottish heritage.[1] The Victorians' penchant for ordered taxonomy and the new chemical dyes then available meant that the idea of specific patterns of bright colours, or 'dress' tartans could be created and applied to a faux-nostalgic view of Scottish history" -- from Wikipedia

"So what's worn under the kilt?"
"Nothing's worn! It's all new, and still in the package."

So basically, a clan tartan is about as legit as one of those coats of arms you can buy on the Internet?

And King George III was pretty much responsible for the fashion of kilt we think of. But hey, cool stuff.

Slightly moreso- Coats of Arms are really only granted to one person- not a family. Also, those people who view Castle McSomething as the ancestral home? Yeah, more likely your family has the surname McSomething because you worked for the guy, not that you were related to the Boss.

I am a Ross too!  Spem Successus Alit!  I wear a Black watch at the moment as our tartan is pricey.  I will have one in our ancient hunting tartan, eventually.  Where in the heck did you get a full set for $30!?

"What's under the kilt?"
"If I show you, you have to promise to kiss it."

That's pretty smart, dress in a way that draws attention then steal shiat. I guess a kilt would be fine if you live someplace that isn't hot and humid.

"Your wife's lipstick."

That's the best reason/place to wear a kilt.

"I don't think there's a graceful way to stick stuff inside a kilt," he told the station."

Knew a woman once who made a living from shoplifting. She would wear a skirt or dress and shove stuff up between her thighs, squeeze, and walk out with it. She once bragged she could shove a dozen steaks up there and still walk normally. Of course, this was back in the late 70s, early 80s before stores had all the security they do now.

"Ok, ma'am, we saw you put the steaks in there. But where is that fish we smell?"

Bought it used on ShopGoodwill.com Got damn lucky. Most of the ones you find on their are for very thin people, women, and children. To find one in size 36 for that price was insanely lucky. Sure it's not the greatest kilt in the world but it fits and I enjoy it.

it seems weird to use a person's name in a headline.  it made me feel like i was supposed to know who the guy was.
