    Congrats Merv. I just knew you would find it worth your while to come here. It’s paying off already.

    Wow – congrats, I’d think it takes some serious guts to wear the work kilt – more power to you!

    The comments here have been priceless but the one that takes the biscuit has to be from

    Finally! And not surprisingly, it took a Scotsman to finally redeem for the kilt.

    Merv, you do a glowing review, without showing us your haggis under the kilt, I’ll go get one myself!

    Be very careful what you wish for my good friend … watch this space. As for haggis I will keep those critters well hidden on the jobsite and the review.

    Thanks Merv! I thought you’d get a chuckle out of that one. 😊

    Hahaha classic. I like the stitching, but shouldn’t it be out of tartan?

    You’re right! But more importantly, does it have a bagpipe belt loop holder? 😂

    It came from the Canadian store so a Timmie’s cup holder only.

    But isn’t Timmies American? Maybe Molson Canadian… no, wait, that’s American, too.

    Is there anything left that is still Canadian?

    I kinda do too. And it’s not like I’ve ever had a penchant to get in mommy’s clothing. It’s just different, but at the same time, on a hot summer day, they seem practical. I’ve had a lot of Scottish influences in my life surround me since childhood even though it is not my direct heritage.

    Kilts are fun to laugh at, but I actually don’t get phased by them. I’ve hung out with guys in kilts plenty AND enjoy a good bagpipe player. One of my closest buds plays the bagpipes like Frank Zappa plays a good guitar solo.

    I’m lucky. I work alone and really only on my own stuff on my property. I frankly don’t give a ‘rats bottom’ what the neighbors think if they see me in a work kilt. I’m sure they’ll talk, but that’s their hobby….talking about others. My hobby is doing/building stuff! Not wasting my time with mindless and useless chatter about others. The ‘Jones’s’ I ain’t!

    Still have to ponder whether I should order a pair though.

    I picked a bad summers day to wear it to be honest, I showed up to work as you see me in the photo above … a tee shirt, kilt and boots (yes I had jockey’s on under despite being tempted not to. We had to work on a deck in Auburn, Ontario where it rained most of the morning, you know that drizzle or light rain that you don’y think you will get wet in. Plus the temp had dropped from the low 20’s to i’d say around 10 or 11. My mate Kev showed up in long pants two sweaters and a teeshirt plus his baseball cap. He was even shivering for the first half hour till we got going … I on the other hand was warm through and through.

    @doobie … a kilt is a singular item not a pair … unless you were thinking of buying two kilts.

    Way to go @journeyman. This has definitely got to be a first for BTP.
