Men in Skirts

Until this summer, I had been wearing Utilikilts almost exclusively for about two or three years. As much as it was to me merely a personal choice, I could not deny that it was also a political and social statement, one which I eventually tired of making every day. So, this summer, I hung the kilts up and began wearing Thai shorts.

I don’t know if I will go back to the kilt when I start teaching again this fall. I am known on campus as the “guy who wears the kilt,” and to judge by the infrequent times I have come to class in other attire, my kilt is now pretty much an expectation for both students and colleagues.

In any case, the subject is still prominent enough in my life that it deserves a category of its own on this blog. This category will contain articles and links related to kilts and kilt-wearing. Click here to see posts in this category.
