Why a Kilt?

1. I have always thought they were cool. Now that I have been wearing one while working, I wish I had bought it sooner.

2. My ancestry on my mother’s side is both Scottish (MacGregor) and Irish (McIntyre). Though I do not own (yet) or work in either of those tartans, I do plan to wear a MacGregor Modern kilt when I attend the various fests.
