    I think you will look rather smart and will leave many of the women guessing about whether you're wearing any underwear. :wink2:

    I suppose you have to be careful which tartan you pick, since different tartans are associated with different clans... but I say go for it!

    In my experience, the girls love it outside of Scotland; in Scotland itself, it's become a bit... passé. Everyone's doing it now, including the chavs. And for the love of God, don't get your **** out in a hired kilt - that's just gross.

    Although I own one, I'm probably a bit anti-kilt. I had to wear one at school quite a bit and at ceilidhs and so forth, so the novelty value has worn off somewhat.

    They're hot if you do it right and you're actually Scottish. English men wearing them is just weird.

    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.
    My brother-in-law is scottish and at his and my sister's wedding I wanted to wear a kilt but he said no as his family might get offended as i'm not scottish. Each tartan is individual to the clan the person's from and if you go to scotland in a kilt as abit of a joke you're taking the piss out of their heritage. (but after meeting his family they probably wouldn't have cared I think you should go for it.)

    For a Scottish wedding it would be a sign of respect to wear the traditional garb. Rent a kilt for about 40 pounds, jacobite shirt, sporran, and socks included, and get a generic tartan like Scotland Forever.

    Interesting - my experience suggests otherwise. Quite a few of my Scottish friends get really pissy when non-Scots wear kilts, especially if they do it wrong in one way or another.

    Anyway, OP, if you don't feel comfortable in one, I'm sure you won't be the only man in a suit at the wedding. And if you do get one, wear some undies unless you really want to end up flashing to lots of drunk girls who decide to test who really is a true Scotsman :rolleyes:

    Doing it wrong merits a bit of abuse, true, but unless they're complete anglophobes no one should bother.

    Last time I wore a kilt I made the mistake of not going true Scotsman- I paid for that by having a drunken lassie actually tear down my boxers in the middle of the party. Good times.

    My advice, try to wear a kilt as it might be one of the only times you do! Might as well experience it once!

    Try Houston Kiltmakers too, always go there when I need to hire, guys are brilliant to deal with and would help you out no bother!

    If you show up in a suit you'll stand out and then you'll be teased for going against tradition. You may come across as a bit 'holier than thou'.
