    Noticed the Blaklader UK Gardener’s kilt also.

    https://www.blaklader.uk/en/product/14741835-garden-kilt#11289

    I spoke to the fellow at Blaklader Canada the other day to ask if the black kilt they offer here in Canada is at risk of being delisted and he said it sells well. But I did ask if there was a tartan kilt they made. He did not know, but I know that would sell even better. Ask any Scot! Although some may now want certain tartan colours, I still think it would fly off the shelves.

    What do you think Mervyn @journeyman?

    I gotta say, I am. Hot summer days…makes a lot of sense. I don’t give a rats arse what my persnickety neighbors see me wear and I’ve got some distant Scottish heritage somewhat. I’ve always had close Scottish friends I’ve had as buds all my life. I could never get into Haggis though. 😉

    lol a couple buddies have tried it on in store but cant bite teh bullet and pay 180 for a tool kilt

    the tartan print would be a awesome idea.. that way it will look more like a kilt from a distance as opposed to those extra baggy shorts that ravers and goths wear

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    With the heat we have had down here the past week or so I could go for a little extra ventilation.

    What a pity they missed out the freedom you get is awesome … I don’t think the tartan idea would be good if they make it as long as the cotton was as tough as Blaklader make them.

    I might get the opposite and have a fan club. My wife said that one of the things that attracted her to me when we first met was my muscular legs. But that was back in my hiking days. There not near as in shape like they used to be. 🙁

    I played a lot of tennis too years ago. I was more into the lesser round ball game of Rugby though.

    I once heard somebody astutely refer to the two sports in this manner….”Soccer is a gentlemen’s sport, enjoyed by hooligans. Rugby is a hooligan sport, enjoyed by gentlemen”. That just made so much sense to me, I never forgot it.

    I have heard that many times … no segregation needed at rugby matches, pubs and trains etc shared fans … never any problems. It’s a real tough sport on the pitch but again after the match the players end up having beers together and are best of friends.

    Now … you want to see a tough sport … watch shinty or hurling … man thats murder.

    Shinty … a game from the Scottish Highlands … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcRwbuSoGyc

    Hurling … very similar to Shinty but from Ireland … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzwzVg7Gmfg … only shin pads used and very little head gear used unless someone has had a previous head injury.

    Never seen it up close. I’m actually amazed I’ve never been to a Highland games. I have so many Scottish friends over the years and many either compete, judge or play at them regularly.

    One of my old friends and good buds plays the bagpipes like Frank Zappa. Just wails on them. He marathon runs to keep his lungs up to par and while he’s getting older, he’s won many competitions. He has piped in the last two Toronto Chiefs of Police. He’s quite the bagpiper.

    Shinty or Hurling is like field hockey’s version of mixed martial arts (MMA).

    Now a bagpiper playing Frank Zappa … thats a must see. Zappa was often over looked but his playing skills (guitar) were second to none.
