Ok. Iíll get this thread started. The pic is from The Mongolians ascent of Tempest a few years ago. Itís not really a kilt. Just plaid cloth I wrapped around myself.
I never wear a damn thing underneath a kilt as that would be illegal.
Iím surprised how many women try to pull up my kilt whenever I wear one.
I always remind them a guy would never get away with pulling up a womanís skirt.

Never call a kilt a skirt. If you do Iíll have to kilt you.

Donald Where's Your Troosers?

I've just come down
From the Isle of Skye
I'm not very big and I'm awful shy
And the lassies shout when I go by
Donald, where's your troosers

[Chorus:]
Let the wind blow high
Let the wind blow low
Through the streets
In my kilt, I'll go
All the lassies say hello
Donald, where's your troosers

A lassie took me to a ball
And it was slippery in the hall
And I was feared that I would fall
For I had nae on my troosers

[Repeat chorus]

Now I went down to London Town
And I had some fun in the underground
The ladies turned their heads around
Saying, Donald, where are your trousers

[Repeat chorus]

To wear the kilt is my delight
It is not wrong I know it's right
The Highlanders would get a fright
If they saw me in the trousers

[Repeat chorus]

The lassies want me every one
Well, let them catch me if they can
You canna take the breaks
If a Highland man
And I don't wear the troosers

[Repeat chorus]

Donald, where's your troosers
Donald, where's your troosers

Do you know why Scotsmen wear kilts?

Because the damn sheep can hear a zipper from a mile away!

Oi mate do yah know the difference between an Englishman and a Scotsman?

No Jimmy.

An Englishman says "hey you get off of my cloud......."

and a Scotsman says

"Hey McCloud get off of my ewe."

I used to wear a kilt when I guided certain river trips and women customers were always trying to pull it up to see if I was wearing anything underneath. Always thought that was a bit of a double standard, but at least nobody got kilt doing it.

Apparently novelist Sir Walter Scott popularized the kilt. Scotland's largest train station is named after one of his pieces -- Waverly.

So, how did the whole kilt-wearing business get started? Seems more suited to places like Ethiopia or Venezuela, rather than drafty Scotland.

It doesn't go as far back as you think, while the tartan (plaid draped over the shoulder) does.

Scotland's greatest poet, Robert Burns. His poem, "To a Mouse" inspires John Steinbeck when he pens Of Mice and Men. You'll find the phrase in one of the stanzas.

To a Mouse

by Robert Burns 1785

Wee, sleeket, cowran, timírous beastie,
O, what a panicís in thy breastie!
Thou need na start awa sae hasty,
Wií bickerin brattle!
I wad be laith to rin aní chase thee
Wií murdíring pattle!

Iím truly sorry Manís dominion
Has broken Natureís social union,
Aní justifies that ill opinion,
Which makes thee startle,
At me, thy poor, earth-born companion,
Aní fellow-mortal!

I doubt na, whyles, but thou may thieve;
What then? poor beastie, thou maun live!
A daimen-icker in a thrave
íS a smaí request:
Iíll get a blessin wií the lave,
Aní never miss ít!

Thy wee-bit housie, too, in ruin!
Itís silly waís the winís are strewin!
Aní naething, now, to big a new ane,
Oí foggage green!
Aní bleak Decemberís winds ensuin,
Baith snell aní keen!

Thou saw the fields laid bare aní waste,
Aní weary Winter comin fast,
Aní cozie here, beneath the blast,
Thou thought to dwell,
Till crash! the cruel coulter past
Out throí thy cell.

That wee-bit heap oí leaves aní stibble
Has cost thee monie a weary nibble!
Now thouís turníd out, for aí thy trouble,
But house or hald,
To thole the Winterís sleety dribble,
Aní cranreuch cauld!

But Mousie, thou art no thy-lane,
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best laid schemes oí Mice aní Men
Gang aft agley,
Aní leaíe us nought but grief aní pain,
For promisíd joy!

Still, thou art blest, comparíd wií me!
The present only toucheth thee:
But Och! I backward cast my eíe,
On prospects drear!
Aní forward thoí I canna see,
I guess aní fear!

Speaking of film noir, Hitchcock's 29 Steps was a novel written by a Scot. A train station memorializes the man with a bust.

Fun stuff Plaid. ! I would never venture to peek under a man's kilt (uninvited). So rude!

I was ignorant on the exact history so I googled^^^ I thought they were imported from the mainland but there's evidently no evidence of that.

I also never understood the adoption of a style of dress that leaves so much unprotected skin in such a cold wet country... but what do I know? I've never tromped around in a bog trying to find a sheep or kill an Englishman. 😀 Evidently there are advantages.
