I thought we could take this up as a separate discussion.
As a non kilt wearing Scot, I really find this intriguing.
Certainly the kilt is widely advocated as an entry level skirt for a guy. What I find interesting is that it is only one among many of a plethora of "male" skirts from around the world and I wonder why?
One factor could be, that for a small country, descendant Scots are highly represented across the world. One may even say that the claim to Scottish ancestry is often spurious and thus disproportionate.
The kilt itself is certainly not the best manskirt to wear in all climates. Heavy wool and tropical heat is not a combination to be recommended.
Then we have all the so called rules and protocols that are supposed to be adhered to when wearing the "Kilt". While we talk in jest about the Kilt Police. there are folks out there who do believe in them quite implicitly.
For this purpose anything that is not a hand made garment in a "properly" registered tartan is a skirt which knocks out an awful lot.
I have seen a discussion as to whether the addition of belt loops to a Kilt relegated it to a mere skirt, go figure.
Let us see where this may take us.
