Re: Utilikilt, noticed or not

I have been wearing my 5.11 Tactical Kilts a lot. The only people that seem to notice are the people that seem a bit jealous (the last 4 people to approach me have asked me where to buy my kilt). Most people don't really pay too much attention to 40yo white dad (normally accompanied by my very blond...

Re: Camouflage skirt

5.11 Multicam TDK. Useful pockets and, as far as I am concerned, it's my clan colors (same pattern that I wore while serving my country in AFG).

Re: Women not in skirts

I see women wearing skirts more often in dressier situation rather than casual. But I'm sure skirts will come around again in the fashion cycle. That may explain why here in Washington DC there are more women wearing skirts/dresses. Beyond the fact that I see a lot more of what people are wearing b...

Re: Sportkilt

No difference between the men's and women's line (interesting quirk is that if you want a shorter kilt (since I like it just above the knee and wear at normal pant's waist as oppose to belly-button waist) it is cheaper to buy the women's. Like 20 bucks cheaper..... I am looking forward to giving my ...

Re: Do folks notice or not?

I wore my 5.11 Multicam TDK yesterday (big travel day for Americans) at both a super crowded rest stop and country dairy. I just think most people don't notice (particularly men, since most of us have it drilled in not to really notice/care what other men are wearing) and if they did I was so focuse...

Re: New Sport Kilt!

Yeah, I probably will go with "thanks, I thought it was a nice kilt too" in the future. My nature is to correct someone when they are wrong, not my best nature but, at 40 years, I don't see much of a course change there.

Re: New Sport Kilt!

I normally wear 5.11 TD Kilts and since they seem to bear a resemblance to shorts no one takes note. Was out last night in this with my wife and kid (taking a walk around the block) and some smart ass older woman remarks "Nice Skirt". I just replied that it was a kilt.. (was more focused on other th...

Re: 5-11 Tactical kilt!

5-11 released these again on their website. I think they just order a set number of them and when they are out, they are out. I just ordered on in the hip new color, Storm.

Re: The Tactical Kilt Dialectic

Overall not a bad article. So rare to see kilts in the regular media.
The 5.11 TDK's are pretty great kilts. They are what drew me in in the first place.

New Sport Kilt!

And I picked one up for my lovely little daughter as well (she loves twirling around in it and dancing with Daddy). Ironically the person least likely to be wearing un-bifurcated garments in my house? My wife... love my new one as it has pockets (not sure what possessed me to not order pockets in th...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

I have been working on checkout for about a month now at Dunelm and I have seen large numbers of women of all ages come through my till. Depressingly the number skirted is very small - sometimes only about a dozen or two in any day. Sometimes I get too busy to remember to look but I will try and ge...

Re: Kilt purchase

Sport Kilt has a sale going on now (15% off and free shipping) so now I have a new kilt (with pockets!) and a mini-kilt (for now just to be used for running) on the way. And the same pattern for sized for my 18 month daughter. They are all the same pattern as my other sport kilt so the question will...
