So You're Going to Wear the Kilt ...
A note from the Kiltmaster of the Red Thistle Dancers:
Highland attire is one of the most striking forms of masculine dress. Wearers of the kilt often invest a lot of money in their kilt and kit, but unfortunately when they are new to highland attire they often make errors in how they wear them. The Devil (or perhaps “De'il” in this case) is in the details.
As someone who has worn the kilt for many years I would like to point out a few common mistakes, that once corrected, will ensure you look good in your highland finery. Scroll down for tips.
