Kilts, Not just for the Scottish anymore

Ok so I will freely admit that my tastes may be seen as a bit medieval...but damn I love the sight of a man in a kilt. Traditional or Informal doesn't matter it is the quickest way to get my knees to go weak. Now I have discovered a company that actually specialises in day to day kilt wear, called Utilikilt. Humina humina humina. *LOL*

Of course I showed them to hubby and got at typical response...
"NO, NO, NO, Never, not even if hell freezes over. If I saw I guy wearing that thing I'd make fun of him."
Oh come on! What is it with North American men? Have we raised multiple generations of homophobic males that are terrified of anything that might be seen as feminine? Although if anyone views a man in a kilt as looking girly then they need some serious glasses. Personally I think they are sexy as hell and would gladly ogle any man who wears them in my presence. **BG**

Utilikilt's Top 10 Reasons To Wear a Kilt!

1)Because throughout history, men have worn un-bifurcated garments. (Scots, Samoans, Egyptians, American Indians, Hawaiians, Japanese, Indians, etc.)

2)Because if women had an appendage hanging between their legs we guarantee you they wouldn't be wearing pants!

3)Freedom, and increased mobility.

4)You only go around once, so why not be as comfortable as possible?

5)All men deserve air conditioning in the summer. You will chafe no more.

6)No more adjust, right side, left side… and say goodbye to wedgies.

7)Unlike pants, the Utilikilt's pockets are only sewn down on top, so that they move with the garment but not with your leg. No more bulky crap contorting the shape of your leg. The Workman's can carry an entire six pack! You don't have to wear your cell phone on your belt. With the Workman's kilt, you don't need a tool belt.

8)The Utilikilt is made in the USA . You are supporting local industry. Your mojo will thank you.

9)Easy access...

10)Fringe benefits:
A. Physical: Your virility may increase. You will experience the pleasing sensation of air conditioning.
B. Mental: Wearing a kilt shows a sense of security with yourself, and you will inspire much debate in others.
C. Spiritual: Without physical constrictions, your burden will be lighter, your sense of freedom less impaired, and your sense of self will have room to grow.

*laughs* I have to say that some of the reasons on their list are a little suspect, but it shows some darned creative marketing. But! They forgot the most important reason to wear a kilt ........ "Dude, you'll get lots of chicks." *nods* I want the one on the top!

This would certainly seperate the men from the boys! If I remember correctly I think Ty Pennington wore one of these on one of the makeover programs.
Makes perfect sense to me.

WooHoo Michele! Congrats on having a hubby that is secure enough to look so damn sexy. *sigh* I'm envious. Mine still maintains that hell will have to freeze over first.

my only problem with the utilikilts are this... they arent quite like a real kilt, and when you get used to a real one, the utilis just dont seem right, especialy the way they hang... and no im not talkin bout whats inside mine im talkin bout the actual garment. and besides that wheres the tartan!!!! why is there no tartan!!! haha... my gf loves my kilt at first she was dead in her ways NO MEN DONT WEAR SKIRTS!!! i bought one and wore it and her reaction was only expected *GASP* i never thought you would look that good... she bout me five more and told me i was no longer allowed to wear pants... my reply was simple, isnt that supposed to wait for marrage? i got a nice herty smack for that one but it was worth it
