Girls - what do you think of kilts? Watch

    I'm attending a wedding in Scotland next month and I've been informed that almost all the men there will be wearing kilts. I'm really against the idea of wearing one myself. I'm not Scottish after all. I have been thinking of buying a suit, perhaps a silvery grey colour, I'm just worried people there might find that a bit effeminate.

    I think kilts have been proven to be masculine enough and that a kilt is not a skirt. If you're not Scottish then personally I wouldn't wear a kilt as they're not cheap and you're unlikely to wear it again, and different patterned kilts mean different things so picking the right one may prove difficult.

    Kilts are hot :sexface: Especially if you wear them the traditional way if you catch my drift...

    ^ You don't need to buy the kilt, most people just rent them. But yeah, my dad's English and he refuses to wear kilts and stuff to weddings but mehh.

    Make sure you wear no underwear underneath your kilt if you do it's a sign of disrespect.
    In the Scottish world who ever has balls that are closest to hitting the floor, is the alpha male.

    Kilts are fine if you're Scottish. Bit weird if you're not. At a wedding in Scotland though, I'm sure it wouldn't put people off

    Do you think the Scottish blokes at the wedding wearing kilts think that they're effeminate?

    For the record, kilts = mmm.

    I live in Sweden and yesterday while at the hospital doing volunteering a man was wearing a kilt. All the old ladies there and others there were laughing and saying "this day just gets stranger". I think he unintentionally maybe brightened people's day and made them forget why they were in the hospital in the first place..just for a second at least

    saying that I think it's fine, we used to have a guy who wore them around at my upper secondary school, dunno if he was Scottish but he still looked masculine so I think kilts are fine :sexface:

    though some have made better points about whether or not you should get one, so yeah up to you really :dontknow:

    I wear a kilt for church every sunday, as is made compulsory by a higher power than myself.
    I used to hate it. Now i love it. It brings out my Scottish heritage

    I love kilts

    My fiance is Irish and has one, which he's planning on wearing when we get married (along with all the other male members of his family). He doesn't wear it often, just special occasions

    I'm not suggeting kilts aren't masculine, but I myself am not really the macho type. I don't think a kilt would suit me.

    Then don't wear one. but in that case your thread title should have been differently, so in your OP do you mean that you're afraid that the silvery grey suit would look effeminate? :dontknow:

    In that case don't worry about it and wear what you want to wear, there will probably be other men wearing suits, and a silvery one is not feminine unless it glows or sparkles :yucky: you could always go for a more festive tie or bowtie :yep:

    Have fun at the wedding

    I think kilts on men are fine. Especially when it's windy :sexface:.

    Aged 6 you would have been tempted to see what all the fuss is about I bet.
