    Red face Electric Mackenzie silk kilt

    Iím sure the traditionalists are experiencing nervous twitches just in reading the title on this oneÖ. Let alone the product itselfÖ But I think itís gorgeous! The colour and something thatís 100% silk and made in Scotland. Iíd buy it in an instant but I just donít have $700+ to burn on something, as cool as it may be.

    Guess Iíll just have to enjoy it from a distance. :-)

    The company is Siobhan Mackenzie. They seem to have a very playful attitude toward modern Highland attire.

    Was expecting maybe a paisley pattern from silk...

    Victorian gentlemen night well have had a silk kilt, shirt, lace and hose for evening wear, in a more standard format of course, but silk none the less.

    Siobhan Mackenzie has received some write-ups in the fashion press and awards for her creative approach to kilts, tartan, and tweed. Definitely not traditional, but certainly no more far out than some of the Geoffrey (Tailor) or Utilikilt designs that have found a sizable following. And I definitely prefer silk over acrylic, rayon, polyester and most other "alternatives" to wool being sold for kilting.
