"Oh, the HUMANITY!
MsD...you said it...it's a matter of misguided priorities. Pure selfishnes, this lack o' kilts. What are we bonnie lassies to DO?"


We start a thread devoted entirely to kilts, that's what we do! Maybe we'll finally get results!!

We won't take it anymore! We want backpacker boys in kilts and we want 'em now! Mad

Nicklebag keeps harping on me to wear one and take pictures of the event. If she and her crew pony up with one of the MH kilts I’d spend a weekend in one to see how it was.

mmmmm, that bit o'quad right above the knees...oh baby...

No qualifiers! It's hard enough to get the boys into the kilts. We can see who needs to wear 'em more AFTER we have the pics, agreed?

I kind of put mine on the back burnner while working on my summer remodeling project. I think it's time to worry about it again. I need to find a nice purple cloth for it.

Really my legs aren't going to do much for you though. I don't work them out like I used to and there is that great big scar right down the middle of the one. May be one on the other knee in a few months.

And just a quote from the utilikilt website from a, erm, satisfied customer:

I just bought my utilikilt today at Folsom street faire. Within 3 hours I had a girl groping up around in it, who wasn't my wife.
