    Blaming Buzzfeed for being shallow and snarky is like blaming a cat for being furry. But they do occasionally run a truly funny and well-thought piece, and some of their quizzes are hilarious.

    To add insult to injury, Buzzfeed even ran articles on the Toronto Sphynx (a hairless breed of cat) and their antics.

    She is clearly trying to say she thinks all kinds of men look good in kilts, that they can get away with wearing kilts, can have fun in kilts, can be formal or casual in kilts, and that kilts are a good thing, albeit in her own Buzzfeedy way.

    I think it is churlish to take any criticism or offence from that light-hearted "listicle" that supports kilts.

    That is Tristan Cameron-Harper modelling Siobhan Mackenzie kilts. She is easily googled (I won't link here as I am not sure if it breaches forum rules).

    That was all I needed, thanks. Doesn't look like their prices are so far out of line that it wouldn't be possible in a year or so to get one.

    Well, as Jock says "Each to their own" and I'll defend to the last others right to their opinions. Wouldn't be my choice, I'm more of a traditionalist, proper hose, polished shoes, etc. though I forego a jacket or waistcoat usually (it's warm down here). I never really liked sarcasm or satire either. Perhaps it comes with the passage of time, like Jock, I've seen more than my "three score and ten" summers!
    Regards, Sav.
