    I'm so embarrassed.

    My son and his family, and the family of his wife, eleven folks total, just returned from two weeks in Scotland trying to track some of their Irish/Scottish roots. Son, Evan, took about 1000 photos and posted half of them. Here is one of him wearing a kilt. Those shoes and the T shirt don't exactly compliment the outfit. And, he is more Italian than anything. What have I wrought?

    It's okay Frank, seems the kilt is worn by rednecks as well.



    ....and have a look at those shoes.

    Cheer up Frank. He may not be Mel Gibson, but it could be worse. Though I'm guessing the folk in Michigan might be more, uh, open to different dress than those in the Ozarks.

    The few times I've seen guys here in LA wearing kilts, they were not plaid, but solid color. And they guys wearing them were big and burly enough that I don't suspect anyone gave them a hard time about it.

    These guys make kilts as utility clothing:

    I asked son, Evan, and, yes, that is the tartan of clan McAlister. They were at some kind of event or reunion for McAlisters. He was the only American present that would put on a kilt. And, he was the only one present that wasn't a McAlister. I think I will have to make him a sgian dubh to go with it.
