I am new to this website, but I have worn a traditional 8-yard kilt for about 6 years. I was a bagpiper in a local Scottish Pipe and Drum band. I had to quit the band when I started a new job.
A traditional wool kilt is way too hot to wear most of the time here in Florida, so I am going to try a modern kilt made of a light to medium weight fabric. Also, I really like the idea of a kilt with pants-type pockets!
