Hi,
not sure exactly how they would be for construction like when I am on the roof.
The workman's utilikilts have a 'modesty snap' between the legs that snaps the kilt together so you don't get an exciting view. Oh, and the utilikilts website has a pretty funny video on its home page right now. no, I don't work for them.

Finally pregnant with #1 and #2! Due September 9th, 2014

DH is Scottish snd owns several kilts. I had to learn how to make them to keep up with kilt ideas.
He had me make him a pinstripe kilt foor our wedding last year.

But what do they actually wear underneath? :

I pray for the day Family Court recognizes that CHILDREN have rights, parents only have PRIVILEGES.  Only then, will I know my child is safe.

My DH would look amazing in a kilt! He has great legs. He's 1/4 Irish, think that's enough to get him in a kilt?

Under a traditional kilt, a guy isn't supposed to wear anything at all. This is referred to as dressing "regimental".

I couldn't vote accurately (needed a 'dh has kilts and wears them' option); Being of the Burns clan, I wear them (trad and Utilikilt). But, dw and dd express dismay and raise such Cain I have yet to wear mine in public in our hometown with any regularity. The one time I snuck out of the house with the utilikilt on, I ran into a construction guy wearing his outside the coffee place. We enjoyed a manly embrace and a loud barbaric yawp, posed for a cellphone photo and dw was mortified when it appeared in the local rag. I find it hilarious and enjoy taunting them. At my brother's place, they relent, if only a little so I've done most of my public kilt-wearing out there. I'm vertically challenged (5-6) and have the legs from years of mountaineering and climbing but alas, my belly (I have the gut-cut in my Utilikilts) from 10 years of SAHD and a writer's sedentarism doesn't give me quite the confidence a reduced belly might bring to me. Surfing and futbol refereeing, disappointingly, has kept the legs toned but just doesn't seem to have made a dent in the spare tire. :

That being said, kilt wearing is more about the footwear (and in trad kilts, the claymore). I've found I've gotten better reactions (in my brother's hometown) when wearing combat boots than when wearing Birks with a kilt. I'm inclined to agree. The taller upper of the boot emphasizes the massiveness of the sturdy muscled leg, be a man short or tall. Long hair helps too (for some reason I cut mine off when I had kids... hmmm). I do have a photo on the Utilikilt site, thanks to my SIL. Thank the gods for her Finnish boldness. My middle eastern dw doesn't get it, bless her.

Own one, wear it. My wife isn't ecstatic about it but, she understands its part of my heritage. Sorry I can't post pics of it here, we had some good ones a few St. Patrick's Days ago...

saw a number of them at dragoncon, I can take it or leave it. DP doesn't like his thighs rubbing together, so kilts are not for him. quite frankly I can understand why. the texas heat and humidity seem like a sure fire way to get a bad rash

Though I voted that I like them, I would say not recommended as appropriate attire if you are the head bouncer at an Irish pub turned dance club after dark!

DH is a musician and played at one last week where the head bouncer wears a kilt. Apparently, there was a brawl between patrons and needless to say, the bouncer ended up bottomless!
