I've always wanted to where a utilikilt playing paintball.  I'd where one to work if it wasn't for all the freaks that would lit it up.  I've only seen one brave soul play paintball in a kilt, in my 20 plus years of playing paintball  and that was at The Edge in Wichita KS.

I'd always heard that underwear was the difference between a kilt and skirt.

The Friday before this last St. Patrick's Day, our foreman included this on the morning walkaround notes:
Press 21, killer outfit on operator.  Some flash at runner.
The operator in question - who already sports a big, red beard - was wearing a Utilikilt and a Flogging Molly T-shirt.  When I went to see, he told me he'd gotten more visitors that day than in the last month combined.

(And maybe I'll track down my wife's video of me singing "The Scotsman" at an open mic night on our trip to Juneau last summer when I'm off work.  "I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt . . . .")

5.11 tactical did, as an april fool's prank ~5-6 years ago, a 'new product' called the tactical duty kilt. Their customer base petitioned them to offer it as an actual product, and as a result, I have three of them. (one from 2013 in black, and two newer ones purchased earlier this year when the black one started showing it's age more.)

That, and a requisite 'punk-esque' t-shirt, gets me more comments than anything.

If I had the money, I might consider a mocker Utilikilt and proper McPherson tartan.

From what I gather, if you're not regimental then it becomes a skirt.

Alright, there are about million jokes about what's worn under the kilt.  As a regular kilt wearer, I have heard them all.  Consider this:  A normal, full up tartan kilt is about 8 yards of expensive heavy wool - Scottish wool at that.  And so very scratchy on tender bits.  So one needs protection from the kilt.  Also, the last time I had to dry clean one of my kilts, it cost me $45 - and they screwed up the pleats.  So the kilt needs protection from me.  And finally, if you are out and about, those of you who wear bifurcated clothing may not realize how common updrafts are around building corners, etc.  "Marilyn Monroe" moments are embarrassing, especially if there are kids around.  What do I wear under the kilt?  Three people know.  Me, my wife, and God.  And that's the way it should be.

God looks down on the kilted man and smiles.  The Devil looks up at the kilted man and fears.

I'd always heard that Daniel Boone "kilt a bar" under this or that tree, but I didn't think that's what they meant.
