What are the rules for men wearing Kilts?
The kilt is a knee-length skirt with pleats. It originates from Scotland.
This gentleman is NOT wearing a man's kilt; he's wearing a skirt. A kilt has all its pleats in the back and sides; the front panel is flat. He should also be wearing a sporran. The kilt is properly worn at the navel, NOT on the hips like jeans.
LOL, I dont think there are any rules when it comes to Men and KIlts, especially Scottish Men. I think it is a fraternity though and the rules and regulations are only made known to the members! I have a few pictures in my vault of some of these Scots and I keep them safe. I hold on to them as a trump card, in case l ever need to use this Ace up my sleeve!
I believe it is a Scottish thing and it is only okay to wear in Scotland, that's my view.
A victorian invention. Basically you have to be Scottish or Irish Scots or any more of the diaspra. You really need to wear the whole thing, the funny little purse on the front of the belly, the white stockings and the knife (skean dhu), take care of the latter as unlike the sikh knife (kirpan or sometime mini-kirpan) very few airlines will let you on with it.
Just a thought the "great kilt" is said to have been like a toga rather than a cape.
Shoes are more open. I see that relache has her views on the matter. And of course no under-trews
As long as the men wearing skirts keep the length below their knees it should be okay, I just would not want to see men in mini skirts. LOL
What are the rules???? OH MY LORD my rule is wear them and wear them well. I love a man in a kilt. nothing sexier but of course you have to find the person attractive but DAMN ITS HOT HOT HOT!!!!!!!!! Have to say after spending time in Scotland with our Celtic brothers and with the kilt being a huge part of life even in Ireland, I have to say it shows a mans real buffness to wear them and not care. And just a note Kilts are not skirts!!!!!
I only know of one. no underware. And you have to be scottish
Just wear UNDERWEAR and NO "cheeky mini-kilts" PLEASE! =P
But seriously, it isn't just Scottish men who wear skirt-like attire. Asian men wear skirt-like or dress-like Cultural attire, such as the Hakama or Sarong. Some Muslim men wear dress-like attire used mainly as outerwear or prayer clothing such as Dishdaasha, Galabiyyas, Furwah, Abaya, or Jubba. And Bengali, Pakistani, and Indian men wear skirt-like garments called lungee, dhoti, pancha or veshti. These are just SOME examples of men's clothing in other parts of the world which westernized cultures may think of as skirt or dress-like.
My Husband is from Bangladesh and he wears a lungee. And I think it is DAMN HOTT! (so hot it deserves an extra T) when he wears it. (Hey it's easy access... ;D)
Conclusion: Straight men wear "skirts" too!
Definitely underwear needs to be a rule...and not a g-string. Gross.
Hah,i have not seen a man wearing Kilts ever before. i think it would look strange if a man wearing skirt. So i do not know what's the rules for men wearing Kilts clearly.
Kilts historically originate from Ireland and moved over to Scotland through immigration.
There are no set rules as such but there are a few guidelines;
A true kilt must be of a approved Tartan (the pattern), Tartan's denote what clan you come from and so are very important.
For men kilts are generally knee high, although for women it may be slightly shorter.
Usually those wearing traditional kilts at formal events (such as weddings) will have knee-high socks called Hose's.
Kilts usually have what is called a Sporran (pouch) on the front, this acts as the pocket of the kilt.
Traditionally those wearing kilts on formal occasions also have a small knife called a Sgian Dubh, which in modern times is more decorative than defensive.
Unlike your picture the appropriate top half is a formal shirt or blouse .
No mention of underwear - but when Kilts were standard dress there was no affordable equivalent, so they did without! I suppose in the modern day this would depend on the occasion and how, erm, proud the particular individual was
Well I think if you're going to wear a kilt then you need to be pretty well coordinated with the rest of the outfit. If you don't look fierce AND like you just stepped off the runway, I'd no...
Uh, maybe wear underwear too? lol, not sure there are really rules per say.
Just look at the picture and do everything different.
1) The pleats go in the back; straight panels go in the front.
2) The kilt is not worn at the pants waist; it's worn at or slightly above the navel.
3) The kilt should fall to mid-knee.
4) When sitting, sweep the back under your butt and make sure the front falls between your knees; you have nothing on underneath. In fact, in inspecting the mustered troops, the commander used to use a mirror on a stick to assure the troops were properly (un)uniformed. That's the origin of the phrase "going regimental"
Q) What does a Scotsman wear under his kilt?
A) His shoes.
Actually I think the Kilt originated in Wales,-Celts,, But I think traditionally they supposed to wear nothing underneath. (so no peeping now). Thats why traditionally the 'Sporron' was also a must to wear,originally to protect his private parts when in battle,ie-sword fight or knife charge by enemy (anglo-Saxons) on horseback.
I believe I remember being told by a few Scottish Elders, the men are suppose wear shorts, like walking shorts, to be more covering of their personal area under the skirt. When the men dress up in their formal attire on special events. Its impressive. The color code and design of the kilt, does or use to in tradition , makes you distinctive in What Can you associate yourself with. There are many family clans recognized today that are traced back to 'olden' times of the days of early Scotland. So, if ever you are invited to sit next to a kilt clad man, if he's a gentleman, he will be following traditions of family and clan!
As a general rule, 1. men should not wear dresses. 2. Definitely no trampolines.

What's the difference between a kilt and a skirt?My friend just took a trip to Scotland and came back with lots of pictures of men in kilts. What are the key differences between kilts and skirts? Do women in Scotland ever wear kilts, or are they just for men?
