Scottish kilts - Page 2

I strongly dislike utility kilts and the like; nothing beats a heavyweight wool kilt from Scotland.

So, last year, one of my bigger clients was a platinum sponsor for an outing benefitting the Scottish Rite Hospital.

I was playing on their golf team and the decision was made to wear kilts... A "Kilts for Kids" thing. Our tee off time was 10:30... the problem... I had to be in court that same day at 9:00.

I knew I would not have time to change sooo....

I go off to court in kilt, the socks and tassels... white dress shirt with tie and jacket (have to adhere to decorum after all).

The judge calls our case, gives a perfunctory good morning.. looks up.. looks down.. looks up with his eyes wide open and I greet him with a ...

"Top of the mornin' ye Honor."

Yes.. I prevailed on my motion that day.

The Vestiarium Scoticum is still being taken seriously? Let the Japanese have their kilts I say. "idea of distinguishing the clans by their tartans is but a fashion of modern date . . ." -- Sir Walter Scott. Thank you wikipedia.
