How do people in the UK feel about Americans wearing kilts?
Most in the UK wont have a view but In Scotland you'll prob be seen as being "another American dick in a kilt" Edinburgh's full of them, they come over to trace their ancestry get kilted up (in what are really tartan skirts) then run around town and the highlands (till the midges get them) pretending to be authentic jocks. Edinburgh is like Disney world in tartan, its all geared up for the tourist industry and theres at least three kilt shops on every street all desperately trying to flog their tartan skirts to stupid tourists.
Question from the
SCOTLAND DRAFT HIGHER GRADE MODERN MATHEMATICS PAPER 2003
3. An Afro-American called Zachary Obisanjo Kokobobo asks a Tartan Shop in Inverness if he has any Scottish Genealogy. How long does it take to flog him full Highland dress and matching kilts for his wife and 10 kids?
Seriously though - if you are going to buy a kilt its going to cost you over 300 quid for a proper one, the ones you see on line and in tourist shops are not the real deal and a real Scot will laugh at you in it. Make sure the kilt finishes 2" above the knee other wise its not a kilt but a skirt.
Back to the matter in hand though, do brothers that wear kilts to Assembly's wear them in the traditional manner or does modesty forbid that?
