The Kilt Isn't For Scots Only, Exhibit #10000

Switzerland now has its own tartan a reminder that kilts aren't just for Scottish people.

I was thinking about this tonight. So many people think you have to have scottish heritage where the kilt. That's simply not the case. Consider that tartans have been commissioned for every Canadian province, American military units, and 7 US States.

Now, what might this suggest. Hmmm. Maybe you don't have to be Scottish to wear the kilt. If all the websites on the Internet don't convince you then hopefully the fact that so many tartans are made for things not scottish will make the case.
