Regarding the above comments about uncomfortable fabric (scratching etc) I wonder how many of us have worn an underskirt under our skirts? I haven't but often considered it if the skirt's particularly itchy.
I don't have any particularly itchy skirts, but when it's colder I'll do it for warmth.

We've had a dry but cold chilly April so far with frosts most nights. This means that my obligatory dog-walk in the early mornings require all areas to be wrapped up very well, gloves on also. Thick tights over my Neanderthal unshaven legs don't itch at all, so no problem with chaffing or rubbing. My thighs don't touch as I walk....Neither do they when I do the splits either :eye:

Afternoons are different, Demure length 'minis are favoured, no tights, just socks & slip-on shoes. Kilts are also handy....the wrap round & clip-on is quick and I simply love the feel of them. Just succumbed to temptation and ordered a 'hybrid' kilt in dark green with Gordon dress Modern tartan in the pleat reveals, plus matching hose & flashes. (UK Kilts) Not by Dangerfield.

Odds are more woman will buy them for there
other half then men that walk in to get one.
Very good point Chirp and like all good little boys they will wear what they are told to.
Of the ones who do purchase for themselves, most will have consulted and obtained the consent of the women in their lives.
As for underskirts, I do wear one occasionally but for warmth or because of the translucence of some skirts and dresses.
Scratchy is for winter and that just means thicker tights.

I happened to be in the area yesterday where these guys have a store (about 10 minutes from my place) when I was getting a few things so I went in to check it out.
The store is almost completely non-gendered and the staff there told me that that's the plan, and it's proving very popular with a wider than expected range of clientele, and in the last 12 months they've been doing well in the current economic climate.
They do not have a specific men's and women's "side" of the store, which is great to see.

I was not able to see any of their kilts because they were sold out, there was a guy in with his partner while I was there who was also asking about them. They had a women's type of pinafore there which was made of the same type of fabric which looked fairly hardwearing and not very heavy like a traditional wool kilt.
The girl in the shop did say that she hopes to see more men wearing these types of things, and she said the demand is strong going by the way they've sold out so quickly. She said that as we know, we're the only ones limiting our choices and clothes are clothes. She was probably in her early to mid 30s as a guess, and not tattooed that I could see.

She said that they're expecting more to come in as weather cools a bit towards our winter, but there's still stock online.

I see they had rompers/playsuits too - they called them something else but they were so similar except they had a longer leg and not higher cur on our hips or so leg lengthening.

I do find some of the tattoos/ ink on the models wearing the clothes a bit distasteful for my liking. I can deal with delicate or smaller tattoos but most of the ink work looked very chunky/prison style/ in your face kind of ink? Not my cup of tea.

Interesting to see they have sold out though...

NZF,

I tend to agree with you on the overdone ink...
I see people, mostly women with tattoos all over their legs and arms. A lot of it is very well done and quite cool art, but there's a lot that that I don't like, but it's a matter of personal taste I guess. What will that full leg etc artwork look like in 50 or 60 years time....
I personally dislike facial tattoos, period.

It all comes down to acceptance and seeing the other person. It's what we would prefer when out there skirted. If people prefer to display tattoos, that's up to them. If we don't like it, suck it up buttercup.

I took these pics at Robina on the Gold Coast, what store did you checkout? Because, I have talked to both girls at Robina and they were also thrilled with seeing the kilts being made available for men and they also said they have become really popular.

I personally will be wearing more of my kilts now. The tartan look is in at the moment, this is our chance to capitalise of this and give the kilt some exposure as a casually everyday option. Who knows, it could just turn the tide for us men into mainstream fashion

I was at the Carindale store, which is only 10 minutes from my place. There was two women working there, one in her probably mid to late 20s and the other almost certainly in her 30s. They seemed very happy that kilts like this are out there now in the retail stores, and they said they hoped to see more men wearing them.
They were sold out and did say they were definitely going to get more in.
They had a very positive approach to clothes, and one of them said to me that they have sold out and that word of mouth appears to be a major advertising means for their kilts, and that it wasn't just the under 25s buying them, and yes, often couples have been buying them for him as well.

They did say that the fabric was the same as that used for the "womens" pleated skirts, which is cotton I think, and I felt one of those and it's definitely not scratchy.

I take it that you reduced their stock by at least one? would be interested in seeing a picture of one in real life.
