"Can always find a local shop that deals in kilts or has dealings with kilt manufacturers in Scotland. Have them measure you up and they will order it. Had good dealings with Strathmore in Forfar Scotland. 100% New Wool, well made etc,…"
"I have no personal experience with these folks, but a kilt-wearing acquainteance swears by Stillwater Kilts. They have numerous plaids and their non-wool fabrics come in under $100 for most patterns.
Greetings gentlemen,I currently have one kilt, a St. Patrick's tartan from Sport Kilt. I like it. It's well made, a comfortable fit, and this thing repels stains like you wouldn't believe. It's a perfect everyday kilt.However, I'm looking to get 2 more kilts. I'm going to get a great kilt and another causal wear kilt. For the great kilt, I know it's limiting, but I'm looking to spend $150 or less. I've seen a couple of places online that do it in tartan fabric made from polyviscose (which my…See More
"Charles: that's the tartan I wear in honor of three successive generations of Irish women who married into my Scottish family. The McCaw clan has no official tartan, and I won't wear another's last name. I'm getting a great kilt…"
"It was kind of tongue in cheek, but sincere. I mean, if you're a flaming anything, you stand out as a representative of that group. It'd be a shame to make Jesus look like the kind of dude who tolerates cheap jerks hanging around…"
"Charles, is that the St. Patrick tartan?Brian, do tell. We all envy you. I'd emigrate to Scotland if I could make it happen. And, Middle Eastern men tend to wear more open, one-piece style garments, not wholly unlike a kilt if the shirt were…"
"Dude...if I could write a letter to my 20 year old self, it'd go a bit like this:Dear 20 year old me,
First, yes, you do get married and have sex. It's awesome! Really, it's better than you even thought it could be.
Second, if you see…"
"I understand the apprehension. The looks and comments from the slack-jawed banjo pluckers about "the guy in the skirt" can get to you. I got that just Saturday. I'm rarely out of my kilt, anymore. It still gets to me (especially when…"
"As a son of the Scottish diaspora with clan roots reaching back to the 7th century, there's little I'd love more than the ideal notion of a free Scotland.
However, I also wonder if it will be the right move. I don't know if tax…"
Thanks for the critique. My shop is in Sacramento Ca but there is a great shop in Vancouver called Moe's Barbershop. I used to sell pomade to them years ago if go in and run into the owner tell them the Madcats Pomade guy sent you in :)
"After I got married, I found out that I'd gone on many "dates" that I didn't realize were dates. I wouldn't worry about it. Be kind, be honest, don't lead anyone on, but don't worry about declaring any…"
Looking for some advice, or similar experiences from others here. Sorry for the cheesy content.Just a little background, some of my friends are trying to set me and another friend of mine up. She's a very nice girl and I enjoy hanging out with her, but I just don't feel attracted to her in a romantic way. At first I didn't do much about it, thinking that they would eventually get the point that I wasn't interested (I really didn't think that she had any feelings either). Now it's to the…See More
"Violent crimes would include gun violence. But yes, it's possible that gun violence is up, while other types of violence are down, leading to a net reduction in overall violence. Certainly none of these reports are doing much in the way of…"
"I will say that the "expose" is skirting some of the claims made by the other expose. Specifically, the first expose states that the amount of gun violence has increased despite very tight gun control laws. However, the article you listed…"
