Unexpected kilt sighting
« on: June 21, 2008, 09:05:42 AM »
We saw a Garry Allan music video and his backup guitarist was wearing a kilt that looked like Dress Stewart.
It was certainly unexpected.

Where have you seen a kilt that you didn't expect?

While watching the DIY network TV show Cool Tools. They were doing a special for some fathers day gift ideas and had the creator of the Utilikilts on the show!

They had people modeling them as well as the Host wearing one! It was beautiful!

Just a little while ago, at a Steak & Grape festival in downtown Bryan Tx. Nicely made modern kilt in weathered hunting colors.

I knew I was working at the right place for me when our regional head grocery buyer came in wearing a kilt!

The other day, watching "Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares" (or something close to that), Gordon did his thing at a restaurant in Scotland. For opening day, he took the whole kitchen crew and waitstaff and got kilts and kilt socks and for them to wear. The looked quite handsome, especially the witty fellow who put the dessert spoon in his socks where you'd normally have your little knife stashed.

I was at the Minnesota Zoo the other day and saw a gentleman with a large orange mohawk sporting what looked to be a Black Watch Tartan kilt, with Sporran.

every so often i see a bagpiper in the nyc subway system, or in one of the parks around here, and they're wearing some form of kilt/sporran gear.
