    Its very cool. I have a passing interest in the great kilt but I don't know when I would ever wear it.

    Those guys in the pictures were pretty medieval looking! Remind me of Gandalf!

    I looked at the Great Kilt once. Decided it's nice for reenacting and costumes but I sure wouldn't have any place to wear one. Besides, I live in an apartment and the parking lot is the only place big enough to get it on. Imagine explaining to the police that you got run over trying to get dressed

    Instead of letting it moulder away in a cupboard, I cut it in half and had a modern 8 yard kilt made up from it. At least I get to wear it now!

    I own one great kilt, and no, I don't really have any use for it other than renaissance faires. I dummy-stitched mine, just like the ones I offer on my website. Easy to get on, tho I haven't worn it in two years.
