    That whole punk-rock Dropkick Murphy's hipster look?

    It seems like most of the guys on here, even in the contemporary section, are really down on the whole "Kilt/t-shirt/sneakers-or-combat-boots" kinda look. As much as I love the more traditional, more dressy looks, I'm a big fan of just throwing on a utility kilt with a t shirt and a pair of vans or docs or desert boots for a show or a street festival or a beer fest or whatever. Anybody else on this board into this sorta thing?

    No, not really. Its been months since I have worn a t shirt in public. I hardly ever leave the house without at least a shirt with a collar, and usually also a waistcoat.

    But then I also hardly ever wear jeans, dont own a pair of tennis shoes, and my combat boot wearing is decidedly in the past.

    The last time I went with a contemporary kilt wear look, it was at a camp/party after Tartan day where I changed out my wingtip ankle boots for a pair of Merrel hiking boots, and waistcoat shirt and tie for a kuhl pullover.

    There is alot to be said for dressing "up" all the time, but all the positives have pretty much been lost on the kids today.


    Yea, Get off my lawn LOL Ive just become an old foggy

    You're only as young (or old) as you feel. I will dress for the occasion and even mood (as these photo depict). However, I'm with you Luke, stay off my lawn, unless you're pushing a mower.

    I certainly wear a t shirt around the house, but If im going to load up and drive 30 miles to town, if you see me in a t shirt it probably means something broke, and im angrier than normal :-)

    One thing I want to say, Im very pro freedom, dress how you wish. During parts of my life I have been what some may call a punk rocker, other times a hippy, but Ive settled into a mode of dress that is decidedly "North Briton" and the advantages of that mode of dress present themselves in the form of quicker and better service at restaurants, bars, pipe shops and the like. So my visits to towns and cities are much quicker and I can get back home to my books and things that cant be spoken of here ;-)

    I just got a sport kilt at the end of last year and a utility kilt last month, so . . . I'm a kilt newbie for sure.

    I live in a VERY casual area - sandals/flip-flops are the norm and are acceptable in the finest of restaurants. I can't remember the last time I wore shoes & socks, let alone a tie. Before I got a kilt, I wore jeans & flannel shirts in the winter. In the warm months, nothing is best, but in town I wore shorts and a shirt (T or otherwise). Or just shorts on the fishing docks. I go barefoot everywhere.

    So naturally, I wear my casual kilts barefoot. It just warmed up enough to wear short sleeves, and I wore a fishing shirt with the kilt yesterday. I will likely wear a t-shirt sometimes as well. Barefoot.

    That said, I have just about finished choosing a "Pub Package" to order that will include a nicer kilt, hose, flashes, shirt, etc... and look forward to wearing it for those few times I would have worn slacks and a nice shirt or tie. It's going to feel very strange the first time I put on hose and shoes, though.

    Who knows, maybe I'll ramp up my style after getting the kit.

    Just substitute the kilt for the shorts or slacks and leave the rest alone if that's what's comfortable for you. Even in the UK, when the weather is tolerably warm, I'm in kilt, sandals and polo shirt, finding hose too warm and even with hose on, am often in sandals or similar in the winter. The flashes only appear on more formal occasions.
    If you are going to do it, do it in a kilt!

    Kilt,tee shirt, sneakers are my every day work clothes (self employed contractor ). But i must admit....i hate the sneaker and kilt look. Sneakers are just best for my feet. I wear doc martins almost everywhere else.
