The only appropriate thing to wear under a kilt is shoes and socks. ;)

While normally I'd agree with you, there are a couple reason why one might put on underpants underneath a kilt. #1 on that list is health reasons, followed closely with sanitary (depending on the person, obviously.)

Another I can think of would be for winter...

Some while ago I was wondering how kilts are structured, and ended up looking at the site of a tailor who makes and sells them. This guy said that anybody with sense damn well does put on underwear with them--not least because it's a woolen formal garment, and costs like it.   😄

And depending on the grade of wool and your sensitivities Kilts and other items can be rather itchy.  Regimental, Schmegimental - I wouldn't wear "tighty whities" with it, but some cotton Boxer Briefs should do. Either grey blue or black depending on the kilt in question.   

Oh, and have a "Doc Special" Rock Maple Mallet on hand (or if out of stock a Louisville Slugger) in case some wag insists on trying a Short Arm Check - and you've been warned ahead of time.  Homey don't do sexual harassment,. if that Sporran moves...  3:-) 😈

This is a secret, so don't tell anyone. :) I wear black boxer briefs under mine. You're right about the wool effect, but I also used to do Scottish country dancing, which can make kilts fly around a bit. I made my own kilt, but I've got better things to do now.

If you're covered with fur, that might reduce the woolly itches.

The dancers of Scottish Regimental Pipe Bands wear black Speedos -- "containment issues", you see, esp. with some of the more-spectacular moves....

Personally: I wouldn't be wearing a kilt on a woodsball field, as there might be Poison Ivy or similar out there; never mind certain realities of Nature as detailed in Michael Longcor's "Pennsic War IV". ("...I've been stung....")

On of the first time I ever wore a kilt in public I spent the day walking around Toronto. Five plus hours of walking meant that when I sobered up the next day I went and bought come briefs, but by then it was way to late and they just made things worse.
