Video On How To Sit In A Kilt

I ran across this video again on how to sit in a kilt. This video was done by a kilt rental company. I may have posted this before but I did not find the post so maybe not. One point not covered is standing up after sitting in a kilt. One would think that standing up would not be a problem but I see this problem over and over again. It comes from not sweeping the pleats correctly when sitting down. If you don't sweep the pleats under you, as shown in the video, the pleats will be bunched up under you. For those with short arms you may need to use both hands to sweep the pleats. Otherwise you will only sweep the the pleats on one side and the other side will be bunched up. You will still need to push that Sporran down in front so once you are all most down bring one hand forward to push down the Sporran. If the pleats are bunched up under you they will remain bunched up when you stand. From the back you will show more upper leg than you should. This looks bad. So, when standing take one hand and swipe across the pleats in the back to make sure they drop down. I see this problem on traditional tartan kilts as well as contemporary kilts like the Utilikilt.

The link above should take you to their video page. About half way down you will find the video "How To Sit In A Kilt".

Kilt On!
