Kilt comment by author Lillian Stewart Carl

Ran across this blog entry written by author Lillian Stewart Carl.  I wanted to post it here otherwise I will forget where I found it.   Good for future reference.  I particularly liked the comment about modern kilts including utility type kilts. 

In addition to kilt quotes don't forget about this classic from the Honorable Stuart R. Erskine in his book The Kilt and How to Wear it, published in 1901:
 "The Highland dress is essentially a 'free' dress -- that is to say, a man's taste and circumstances must alone be permitted to decide when and where and how he should wear it... I presume to dictate to no man what he shall eat or drink or wherewithal he shall be clothed."

  1. Hello! :)

    I couldn't find a contact page so I decided to write here. I hope it is OK.

    I have seen your blog about kilts and I was wondering if it would be possible to have a link to our website there?

    Our website is: www.HeritageOfScotland.com

    and it is an online shop with kilts and everything that is Scotland related.

    We will be more than happy to send you a gift from our store or simply pay for it if preferred to show our gratitude.

    Please let me know what you think.

    regards! :)
