    And I third you. This is certainly the place for honest questions and honest answers. I probably would have kept the basting in if I hadn't done a lot of research here and watched the videos put out by Mr. Ashton and the good folks at USAK.

    And, Riverkilt, you may be on to something there with pleats up front - I mean, they are often the best part of the kilt. Why should everyone else get to enjoy them? Put'em up front and you can admire the lines in every mirror and storefront!

    Time to start a new tradition?

    Riverkilt, we often go to a favourite ocean-side park, which is equipped with traditional style slatted park benches - except the slats are made of steel and not wood. When the sun's been shining on them all morning, you really know why you need the layers of pleats at the back!

    Crack me up. For sure!

    For some reason reminded me of a hot day in Northern Arizona when I stopped to take a kilt pic at a scenic overlook.

    I had to step over the guard rail to get to the more scenic area. As I straddled the HOT metal guard rail I got an intense burst of heat on one of my sensitive body parts...the downside of being regimental.....and too olde to hop over....

    On more than one occasion I have had to find an opportune time and way to suggest stepping into the restroom
    to remove basting; I as well would like to see those instructions arrive with the kilt. I'm careful to reassure that
    it's an honest mistake, no red face needed. Same with pleats in front. Slide around, smile, stand tall.

    True, but why deny your public a bit of eye-candy swish?
