    And now for my second kilt....

    My second kilt came in, (ordered it first) Macdonald of the Isles hunting ancient colors.
    Medium weight... my mom's family heritage.
    Went for a stroll about the yard in the 90 degree heat. The kilt was far cooler than I anticipated. Much cooler than the cotton shirt! And WAY better than wearing shorts!

    Looking a bit slumped due to allergies acting up.Click image for larger version.

    You could have even more air circulating if you raised the kilt a couple of inches. As a guide, the bottom of the kilt needs to be somewhere between the centre of the kneecap and better still, at the top of the kneecap.

    Thanks, I am considering wearing it to work tomorrow for a "kilted Friday" should liven up the day in the engineering office.

    Did you wear it on Friday? What was the response from coworkers?

    I did wear my kilt to work on Friday. The reaction of co-workers was quite positive. A little joking around of course. The most common question was "What is the occasion?" I replied, it is kilted friday!... Being a casual Friday, most of my co- workers were wearing jeans and t-shirts.
