I thought X Marks The Scot was going to be a multi-subject site for Scots/Scots diaspora and friends of Scots. But it's all about kilts, even Off Topic was about kilts (as they later warned me as I was about to get banned for repeated infractions !)

Same here

Me telling them that their cotten and canvas so called utility kilts were just pleated skirts with lots pockets didn't go down too well ,
but when it came to the camouflage cloth ones , I couldn't bite me tongue any longer and asked the silly buggas want the hell they thought hunting tartans were for .
After that me number was up with the eX men

Just mention white hose and they get their possum-tail tassels in a twist ! Even the mere mention of trews is likely to get them apoplectic !

It's funny but I knew of other Scots who got banned from X Marks. It's an American mutual appreciation society for deranged dandies. I think some of them imagine they're wearing skirts.

I remember one burly fellow showed photos of himself in Walmart wearing his utilikilt. Apparently he got a few odd looks which he thought were of admiration. Just the sort of thing you could wear in the Bronx really

Well whether you're after vampires or ladies the ultilikilt is the thing to have. It's things like this that show the true beauty of the sporran.

Certainly is !

As you can see from the photo, the sporran is worn outside to hide whatever's inside and keep it flat ! The problem comes when a young blade meets the infatuation of his life at a wedding and develops shoogly sporran as he's making a tent !
