Re: 5.11 kilts

Where did you find the kilt on their web site?
I cannot find it, could they have sold out already?
Thanks

Searching for "hiking skirts" is how I found this forum.

Re: This on-line blog gets it!!

I have two of the Elkommando kilts from Mountain Hardwear. (one XL, one L: need to keep a consistent weight!) Unfortunately, it is not a regular stocked item. I also hike in converted skorts (liner removed). Also in the really light weight "Running Kilt" (which is really a skirt). Most of the commen...

His interviews were so much fun to watch.
Look for his interview with Robin Williams, it's hysteric!

Re: Non Gendered Children

I think I get it now: "Men, don't bring your daughter into the men's room" "Women, don't bring your son into the women's room" I see this on occasion in restaurants, the daughter has to go, when out with her dad. He has no choice as she is too young to send on her own. And vice versa. The sign wordi...

Re: How the Kilt was designed to be opposite to the English! | Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow

Frantastic: No offence taken! As I am on the other side of the Atlantic, this comedian was new to me. I find him humorous, but maybe only in small batches. I have two pairs of tights, one athletic style for cold weather walks. The other more sheer from G Leiberman (Glamory Thermoman 100 Footless Tig...

Re: I wore a man-skirts WSJ

Here's the text from the WSJ: I Wore a Man-Skirt (and I Honestly Didn’t Hate It) Though Scots—and fans of their style—have worn kilts for centuries, the garment is still heavily gendered.

How the Kilt was designed to be opposite to the English! | Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow

Just found this online.
Dates from 2009, may be old news to the forum.
I found it funny. I do have three kilts.

Re: High voltage transmission lines

Having caused inadvertent incandescence in power-carrying conductors a few times myself I've learnt my lesson on that one. Watching what happens to wire-wrapped 26-gauge that's been accidentally strapped from VCC to ground is, shall we say, "jarring". I recall using that technique to find an inadve...

Have you tried Kohls? I have found plenty of skirts and skorts there.
I have cut out the shorts from the skorts.
