All About Kilts

An Intelligent Question

You get a lot of interesting questions as a full-time kilt wearer. Well, not really interesting. Unless you consider, "Do you play the bagpipes?" for the thousandth time interesting or someone asking whether you're Scottish/Irish/English.

I walked into Albertson's tonight and a guy asked me, "What's the difference between a Scottish and an Irish kilt?" I explained the Irish kilts were generally either District Tartans or Plain Kilts while the Scottish Kilts preferred Family Plaids. (Clearly, there are exceptions to this.) He then asked whether my kilt was Scottish or Irish. I responded that it was Royal Stewart which was Scottish. The man nodded and walked away. "You learn something every day." Indeed, if you ask the right questions.
