    Kilted for Graduation

    I'm a high school physics teacher and have been wearing my kilt to graduation for the last few years. It's a morning graduation and the dress for many is usually pretty casual (khakis and shirt, open collar or with tie) although there are several who wear a suit.

    As, IMO, it should be a formal event, I went with the closest thing I have to morning dress.

    I think auto correct got you on your title.

    I think it looks professional and appropriate for the event.

    I think the kids that are graduating need to see educators dressed to honor their achievement. As a former student I would have appreciated the gesture. As a parent and soon to be grandparent of a High School graduate, I congratulate you.

    Completely agree; it always blows my mind when people arrive to graduation in jeans, t-shirts or golf shirts.

    Thanks! It was my first time wearing them - I got them from a fellow Xmarker, Highland Logan.

    I believe they are these ones - https://houseoflabhran.net/product/s...tan-kilt-hose/
