    Can I wear a kilt with a moon boot

    Looking for help here, I broke my leg a few weeks ago, later this week, the plaster cast comes off and I will be given a moon boot to wear for the next few weeks.
    Now I'm off on a cruise at the end of the month where there is four formal nights over the two weeks. I always wear my kilt on these formal nights but can any member advise me whether I can be kilted with a moon boot on and not look ridiculous
    I would be grateful for your advice here.

    I think all dress codes accept medical devices.

    Pants is only a present tense verb here. I once panted, but it's all cool now.

    Of course you can. You know it is not a usual choice, but its not a choice that works for any form of attire. So grin and bear it and have a great time.

    I think it would be preferable with such a device strapped to your leg. I hope you have a full recovery and a wonderful time on the cruise.

    I agree , it would be far more comfortable than trousers especially in hot weather

    Have you noticed the knee-brace in the photo at the top of the XMarks pages? You do what you have to do.

    Just attach the flashes to the Velcro strap around the boot, and you'll be golden!

    And as a former foot surgery patient, I agree with the poster above who says the kilt will be a lot easier Id wear it on casual days, too.

    Sounds good, getting the boot on Wednesday, will try the flashes then, the cruise is at the end of the month on the Queen Elizabeth
    Maybe wearing it on casual days might be a good idea, shorts aren't allowed in the restaurant in the evening and long trousers may be just too uncomfortable
