  • Good for you, c_b!

    November 18, 2008

  • Photographic evidence will be required.

  • Except this wee lassie, who had one custom-made and expects to take delivery this week.

    November 18, 2008

  • The kilt's nae fer wee lassies.

    November 18, 2008

  • P.S. Shouldn't this be "kiltsperson"? :->

    November 18, 2008

  • I'd have to think on that. Frankly, I've never been asked to describe a kilt without using the word "skirt." Then again, I've never been asked to describe a kilt while using the word "skirt."

    Besides, I mostly prefer pants. :-)

  • "A knee-length men's garment with pleats at the back, usually of a woolen fabric woven with a precise colored pattern"? (It's much shorter to say kilt.)

    November 18, 2008

  • Well, r, how would you describe a kilt without using the word skirt? BTW: I'm 25% Scotch ("Scotch and water" - according to me da), and I would never dream of killing you -- you are far too amusing to off. ;-)

    November 18, 2008

  • I wouldn't--but that's because my Scottish friends would kill me. ;-)

    November 18, 2008

  • Okay, if you were describing a kilt to someone who had never seen one, tell me you wouldn't be tempted to use the word skirt.

    November 18, 2008

  • And more in Nova Scotia (as I discovered last year).

    That's right, c_b--I've heard that too. And it's true. So no mocking the kilts. :-)

    November 17, 2008

  • Real kilts are expensive. Fayve hondrred poonds for the full get up in bonnie (no, not her) Scotland.

    November 16, 2008

  • Ohhh, Utilikilts... I am a sucker for those too—with the right shoes.

    Yes, reesetee! Particularly actual pipe band people—I overheard one man telling someone "Men have died defending their country wearing this uniform. There's nothing you can say to make me laugh at it." (or something to that effect--the first sentence is the one I remember)

    November 16, 2008

  • Authentic kilts are awesome. Utility kilts, not so much.

    November 16, 2008

  • Around here, if you call them skirts in front of a Scotsman or -woman, you're in big trouble.

    November 16, 2008

  • Most women I know are fond of a kilt, too.

    November 15, 2008

  • Ptero, I don't know what kind of crowd you hang with. All the women I know fairly drool over them. :) (Though admittedly I hang out with a bunch of weirdos.) Actually the big debate, to use that word rather ill-advisedly, is whether women fawn more over the pipers or the snare drummers. Drummers say pipers, pipers say drummers... The only agreement seems to be that women snare drummers are hotter than women pipers.

    Which is good for me so I won't complain. :)

    November 15, 2008

  • We call them skirts.

    November 15, 2008

  • Some years ago, there was a fad for kilts among my (male) friends. I think they thought it would drive the girls wild. I asked the girls about it, and as it turned out, absolutely none of them liked the idea of guys in kilts.

    C_b, you're the exception that proves the rule. :-)

    November 15, 2008

  • Pipe band festish.

    November 15, 2008

  • Either one, really. Festish is such a good (non)word. :-)

    November 15, 2008

  • ?? Me or bilby?

    Edit: Pipe Bands are unfuckwithable.

    November 15, 2008

  • Brackets!

    November 15, 2008

  • Pipe Bands are pretty festish.

    November 15, 2008

  • Does this have something to do with the Pipe Band festish?

    November 14, 2008

  • Well! We know where your tastes lie. :-)

    November 14, 2008

  • Also, "sexy hot bastard."

    November 14, 2008

  • One who wears a kilt. Also kiltman.
