Give him a chance, Tom, he's only just started posting pictures of himself! The professional photoshoots can wait. Mind you, my phone can do 10 seconds self-timer...

Hi Kilty,

You do look great in your kilt suit.

Don’t let the photo snobs get to you. You’ll notice in most of my pics I’m holding my phone.

Hi Kitty I have to agree with both Tom and Pdx don't get pressured but a camera with a tripod would be nice.

The outfit is very nice. I am not to familiar with kilts .I only have one utility kilt. But its hard to distinguish what makes it a kilt it looks like a very nice skirt suit. Which I think are great.

I am by no means a computer or camera expert it is still a struggle for me to get a photo posted. I am afraid to use my phone because I fear I may be sending my photos to the entire world.

If you had a camera it would give you a chance to present you fine outfits in a more relaxed and complimentary setting. Dan

Kilty, when I first read this I was not logged in so I had to log in to see your picture. Nothing wrong with it what so ever, the outfit suits you good and you could go out and and about where you want like that ,Its good. I take ages trying to resize my pics and post them here.

Try these on for size... a variety of Kilt Suits

I still have the first one in the picture, the other two were sold off (to finance another kilt suit) - the Pinstripe one was mistaken for a ladies' business suit if I had no sporran :roll:

The mirror and phone is lazy but will do :wink:

... and a more casual outfit with a denim jacket

or a Colquhoun tartan teamed with a jumper (sold this kilt as it was too baggy and gathered at the top)

Kilts are my favourite, hence my username - kilts now outnumber skirts :mrgreen:

Hey kilty, all those look gorgeous. You could wear them anytime although I bet they will be expensive to clean! 8)
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

I think you mean other skirts. Kilts are a variety of skirt, right?

True... I wear them now and then, but more for functions... like their non pleat relatives, kilts require accessories too... sporran, hose, boots or brogues with smart casual jumper or jacket and tie, more towards the formal. With a jeans skirt, I can get away with a T shirt, or pencil with tights, booties, smart mens shirt, 'Mark as in Mark' style :mrgreen:

Dry cleaning is expensive, but I wear a slip under my kilts to keep them clean, as well as add some warmth in winter. Also with kilts come the inevitable questions of underwear, funny enough when in a regular skirt, no one asks me :roll:

Kilts are a type of skirt, but not all skirts are kilts :lol: I have 3 denim pencil skirts (one a longer midi for winter), of the work/formal ones there's one grey, one tartan, one floral, one navy, one brown tweed, one black, one crimson... I try not to buy any more, the royal blue one was cute but too tight for trips to the loo so that's gone... compared to over 35 kilts, 3 kilt suits plus Highlandwear accessories such as hose (socks), sporrans etc :shock: :roll:

Hey kilty, they are all good. The tartan jacket is a bit much, that is a loud enough tartan even with a dark jacket. Maybe there should be a rule against double tartan just like the one against double denim. The pinstripe and the plain suits are excellent, so I hope you got something extra special with the money from selling them! And you can never go wrong with a kilt and a big thick jumper in a matching shade.

Lol the Hebridean Fire is not for the faint hearted... very bold tartan, I usually save it for summer as it's quite light. Both the Pinstripe (from KiltStore, now 8 Yards) and the 21st Century Kilts Navy has gone, but I have calmer peat brown jackets with Henderson Weathered and richer brown coloured tartans for something more low profile :wink:
