Here's another one that I wore today. This one is all forest camo. It's more typical of my other long kilts.

It isn't obvious (which is the point) but it has 5 pockets on the front that fit cell phone, glasses, etc. and 2 large hand sized pockets behind for car keys, etc. And then on the inner apron, there are a couple more pockets for wallet or whatever you don't want easy access to or to be obvious you've got it. :)

Love the forest camo very much, some times finding a good loking camo can be hard to locate.
Is that, custom made, home made or store bought?

Home made - did it myself. I got the fabric at Handock fabrics, but they have closed up since then. At least the one here did.

Yea, sadly all Hancock Fabrics closed down, they are no more.
We had one here in Mishawaka, we shopped there a lot. My wife can sew so over the years she has made a lot of our gifts from fabric from there. I'm sitting here covered by a fleece blanket she made with fabric from there.
I wish I would have known I would be into kilts. I probably could have gotten some great prices of fabrics when they were running the going out of business sales.
I am pretty sure she could make a twill kilt for me. I have not gotten her to agree to making me one yet. She still is in the "why?" Stage when I put on one of my kilts.
Hopfully soon she will get past that soon. And not give it a second thought. And just make me that kilt :)

I'm not much for new years resolutions, I have tried to stop drinking coffee for the last three years, needless to say I'm still drinking coffee.
Moving on, my goal for 2017 is to wish I could say wear a kilt daily, but I know that is highly unlikely. My goal at minimum is at least onece a week, perhaps more.
So I wanted to start out the year on track.

Starting the year out right.

Bestwishes to everyone, and have a great 2017.

Here we are in March 2017 already. I figured I would give an update on my goal for 2017. To date I have missed three weeks of wearing a kilt at least one time durring that week. However this last week I was able to wear my kilts two evenings and skirts two
evenings, the wife was out of town for a loss in the family. I really feel bad for our loss, but a chance to go unbifiricated for four evenings, of course I am going to ditch the trousers while she is away.
Next week I will have a few more opportunities to dress comfortably after I get off work at night while she is away.
