As a kilt wearer for the last 12 years, I have come to realize that my life has been better since I wear kilts. I get to be me, and I don’t have to dress to impress anyone else or follow some trend. For those that are thinking about taking the leap — and getting a kilt — here are some reasons to give it a try.
- You’ll find hidden confidence.
I thought that kilts looked cool. I had no idea, that I would take to them like I have. I know I rock it, and I prefer to wear them over my regular clothes.
- You will set yourself apart.
For a long time in life, I wanted to fit in. I would pray to fit in, that I was one of the in-crowd. Now, I realize I was born to stand out and I honestly don’t care what people think of me.
- You will find people approaching you.
For a shy guy like me, this is a new thing. People are intrigued by a kilt. They want to know you and ask you about your wardrobe.
- You will be seen as fashion forward.
Even if people don’t remember my name, they know I love kilts. And when I don’t wear one, I am asked “Where’s the kilt?”.
- You find you’ll smile more.
There is a sense of fun about a kilt. I says to other people I don’t take myself too seriously and I know how to have fun.
- You will assert your individuality and masculinity.
Why be boring? A kilt says that you march to the beat of your own drum, and don’t care what other people think about you. Contrary to what some people may think, a kilt is one of the most masculine things you can wear.
- And lest we forget, easy access.
Your partners will like this one! No fumbling with some cumbersome pants and underwear.
I urge all guys to give a kilt a try. You will love the comfort, and there are plenty of traditional and modern styles to choose from.
