    Rugby Wear

    I'm considering a favorite rugby shirt with kilt as casual pub wear. This may be a dweeby question, but should the rugby shirt be tucked or un-tucked? If tucked, I presume a belt is in order. Any suggestions on a casual belt/buckle if this is the case?
    Cheers

    Others may not agree, but always tucked with a kilt or it looks more like a skirt, but the belt is still optional. If you do choose a belt, you should likely avoid one of those 'belly-plate' buckles in favour of a two or one tongue buckle. The plate is fairly formal.

    Not 'dweeby' at all.

    I sometimes wear a polo shirt with a kilt. I think tucked is about the only way to go that looks good (in my opinion).

    Personally I think you could go beltless. Itís a casual look (rugby shirt) and sometimes I forgo a belt when Iím dressing down.

    If you want a belt, I would avoid the plate buckles as Father Bill suggested. Though I have occasionally seen brass versions of plate buckles worn to good effect with more casual outfits.

    I don't think there are any hard rules to follow here and you should feel free to experiment with what is most comfortable for you - tucked/untucked and belt/beltless. However, if you choose to wear a belt you might find it looks better if you try something different with the buckle as the large silver plate buckle can look out of place with casual kilt. I have a round bronzed-effect buckle that looks fine for casual kilt, but I think a black buckle would look good too.

    I always wear mine tucked in (and wear a belt) - but go with whatever works best for you.



    Kinloch Anderson (who now have the licence for the SRU Tartan) apparently recommend untucked:



    Now the next question: socks up or down?

    I don't think it matters. I always tuck, but my two Scottish friends are untucked.



    Here, both tucked, both socks up. The whisky is the important thing.

    Awesome, guys! Tucked it is! BTW, I did order a kilt belt with simple (no plate) buckle.

    Actually highlights the point I was going to make, most (not all) Brits tend to go untucked for a rugby event. That said, it's all about personal preference.

    No hard and fast rule, but in my opinion shirt tucked under kilt is better as it exposes the belt and shows more of the kilt.
