    Strange position for buttons. Do they do any actual buttoning ?

    They are in a place that there used to be buttons in the past (a massive cuff). But, no, they're just patter nowadays.

    Same. When I was a kid it was mostly suits but in the last 3 weddings I've been to up there, all about 10 years ago, there were many kilts. At one of the weddings only one man was wearing a suit.

    I like the fashion. Mens suits are so dull. It's good to see them looking a bit more colourful.

    If by "help" you mean a link to somewhere selling tartan trews cheaply, then yes it is.

    I'd go for this, but I'd wear a plain black waistcoat. If I were you I'd also have a self tie bowtie, they look great when untied worn with an open necked shirt and full formal dress. Think like this, but with the trews etc (he should have his finger off the trigger, and should be wearing a cummerbund, otherwise this is a very sexy look)

    Don't think I'd do trews and cummerbund

    I reckon trews and waistcoat

    or just cummerbund.

    Agree on the tie though.

    I think the whole kilt thing would look better with doc martens imo.

    here used to be a bloke in the Barras markets in Glasgow who sold proper, old skool, quality kilts. i got a rather lovely Buchannan one for about £40 - however, as this information 10 years old, and its quite possible that neither the bloke, nor the markets, still exist, you may not want to rely on it too heavily...

    anyway, i think i may have solved both of chilango's problems - a cheap kilt, and not being invited to the next shindig.

    Sadly, my wife doesn't seem as keen on the trews as I am :(

    Looking more likely to be a hire outfit supplemented by buying a cheapish kilt in MacDonald tartan. I think.

    i see your drama, but i'd still be pushing for forgetting the rest of the outfit, and spending as much as poss on a decent kilt, rather than spending what you've got on on stuff you're not going to keep. cheap kilt - itchy bits...

    I agree.

    But it's simply not going to happen.

    I think this might be like the Stanley Boil Thread, and there is no real intention to purchase or wear a kilt at all.

    chilango you should take a trip to Glasgow this weekend on the off chance the trader kebabking remembers is still trading.

    I want to know why it hasn't descended into a bitter war of words on appropriation of pseudo-cultural tosh?
