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. ;-)
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)
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.
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. :-)
