    I have been wearing my kilt to Church since Easter and wherever I happen to be after that. This last Sunday I went to Costco and had three people comment on it; an older woman said "nice kilt," another man asked me if I was a "Scotsman" (to which I simply replied yes just to save time explaining that I have Scottish ancestry, which around here is almost always what someone means if they ask "are you [fill in the blank]?"), finally, I was asked for change by a homeless man in the parking lot who proceeded to ask me if I was Irish (I feel like there is a stingy/frugal Scottish joke in there since I only gave him a dollar but I can't articulate it right now).

    And that kind of sums up the range of comments I usually get. People love it or are curious about it. I've yet to come across anyone who felt a need to voice disapproval. I think enough people in San Diego dress like slobs that a man in a shirt, tie, and shined shoes seems well put together, whatever he wears below the equator.

    I also wear the kilt out for special occasions (like I would a suit). I took my wife out to Balboa Park for our anniversary; dinner and the performance of King Richard II at the Old Globe Theater. One funny thing that happened was that I crossed paths with a man in a black utilikilt, t-shirt, and a big, feathered, pirate hat (think Barbossa from pirates of the Caribbean) so I stopped to stare a moment and he saw me in my tartan kilt, tie, and jacket and we just kind of smiled and nodded at each other. I don't think either of us expected to see another guy in a kilt and the contrast of our outfits was extreme enough to be pretty funny.

    At the moment, not nearly enough. I currently only have one that I wear for festivals, special occasions, and piping. I think I will wear a kilt more often once I get to 2 or 3 kilts in the wardrobe.

    At least every week - if I'm not at work, and out of the house with friends or attending any kind of event - I've been kilted for about 6 months ~

    And I just came back from travelling in Europe visiting family and attending a wedding in Cornwall, and I was kilted the whole time ~
