    I typically wear bikini briefs, kilted or non-kilted. I see no reason not to wear whatever you normally find comfortable or practical.

    As with any clothing option, wear what is appropriate underneath. Athletes usually know that support is helpful for most sports while dancers normally are told to wear something, usually black. For the rest of us, that is a personal choice that might be effected by wind, temperature, and the setting.

    Here in Colorado we have days with almost no wind and days where the wind is over 20 MPH (over 32 KPH) gusting fast enough to blow the roof off a house (yes, I have seen this) and temperatures ranging from below -10 F (-23 C) to over 100 F (38 C) and this means that the answer of my preference might be different one day to the next.

    I think this is the right answer. Wear whatever you would normally wear and find comfortable.

    As a teacher, many of he times I am kilted are around kids and at school events. Obviously, the best policy in such a situation is to don some sort of underwear. Mine are boxers or boxer briefs, which may be tartan or solid colored.

    I don't often wear a sgian dubh or other Scottish weapons for the same reason. Such items generally cannot be brought onto a school campus.

    I still don't understand why all kiltmakers don't also sell underkilts. Basically a cotton skirt made of the same cotton as a tshirt. Protects the kilt from the man and still gives FREEDOM.

    One can take a black T-shirt, remove sleeves, open at shoulder seam. Velcro attached to close. From hem, split side seams up enough for
    ease of movement. It serves well.

    I am fairly sure no one has ever found out whether I do or don't unless they knew me well enough to be under there. My standard answer
    when asked is that the choices are the same whether kilts or pants.

    Riverkilt,

    According to the old catalogs OC Richard posts and some comments from Jock Scot, it seems like it was once customary for kiltmakers to include a pair of "drawers" with a new kilt. These varied from shorts made of the same wool tartan material as the kilt to silk shorts in a compatible color. Apparently the practice faded away in the 1960s-70s, unfortunately.

    I wonder if we could interest any kilt retailers in your "underkilt" idea. It sounds promising.
