I was looking at Old Fools Kilts blog. I found this posted on his blog:
So I said to the boys "hello girls".
"We're not girls" they replied.
I said "you're dressed like girls".
They immediately pointed out that I was the one wearing a skirt. I had on a kilt.
I then asked "when was the last time you saw a female in anything but pants?"
I have thought this several times. No one has said this to me yet but if I ever get a comment something like "why are you dressed like a girl" my response will be similar to the above. When I am out I see the guys and gals all dressed in jeans. So who is dressed like a girl?

Wow, it has been forever and a day since I posted anything. I still wear kilts about 50% of the time. Just busy with life I guess. Normally any complements I get wearing a kilt occur with traditional tartan kilts. Everyone identifies with style of kilt. The contemporary kilts appear to be another matter. Granted they look more casual then then their tartan brother so that may be part of the reason. I think for many they don't know what they are looking at so even if they like them they don't say anything. I ran out to lunch wearing a contemporary kilt. An attractive black lady maybe in her mid 30's walked up to me an complemented me on the kilt. Over the weekend I attended a couple of Christmas dinner events. Wearing my best tartan kilt and a little dressed up I received several questions and complements. I don't have a picture of what I had on. I will try to get one over the next few days. I have other events to attend and will wear the same thing. Wear your kilt and have some fun!
