Yes, kilts. In 2003 I played a great Scottish warrior known as “the Douglas”, in the Cleveland Shakespeare Festival's production of Henry IV. We thought it would be appropriate for me to wear a kilt for the role, so I bought a velcro-closure, polyester “Sport Kilt”… and I loved it! I started wearing it around the house, and eventually out in public, but lack of pockets made it impractical. Then I found the Utilikilt — a kilt with cargo pockets! I wear mine all the time. I even got married in an authentic Scottish kilt, in my wife's family tartan. It cost more than her dress.
