You can always tell what clan a Scotsman belongs to by looking under his kilt. If it's a half-pounder he's a MacDonald

Depends on the sex of the person wearing it. There is a well-known joke about a young lady who asks a similiar question of a gnarled old scotsman. He tells her to put her hand up his kilt and find out. "Ooh - it's gruesome" she says. "Aye", he said "And it's grew some more since since you felt it !".

Addendum to previous item. If you were to ask a scotsman the question, "What is worn under your kilt ?", you'd probably get the answer "Nothing - it's all in perfect working order".

Skarpi, it depends on whether the wearer is a "traditionalist" or a "modernist" , usually "traditionalists" only wear underpants when taking part in Highland sports or in public dancing displays, this is because during these activities the sporran ( the flat poch worn hanging in front of the kilt)is usually pivoted onto the hip ( so it doesnt swing out and beat your partner black and blue on the turns) does not keep the front of the kilt in place as it usually does and preserve ( somewhat) the modesty of the wearer, but otherwise they probably go "Commando"(that is wear nothing at all underneath) Micca .

Many kilt wearers whose tackle is in full working order always wear jockey shorts or some such in order to avoid the horror of "horizontal sporran syndrome" caused by close contact with a member of the opposite sex. Perhaps in a dancing situation. Many who "commando" might be less than gifted in the tackle department.

I have heard that in highland regiments, that if a soldier's wedding tackle is too long he is advised to "Wind it round yer leg, tuck it into the top o' yer sock and preten' it's a varicose vein". The old ones are best.

The kilt is traditionally only worn by men; women just wear tartan skirts, which tend to have less material than the kilt.
Having worn the kilt with and without undergarments I would warn anybody wishing to go 'commando' to be aware of midges!

What Jock says is true. Women don't wwear kilts unless they are play in a Pipe band or participate in Highland dancing competition. A kilt is not a tartan skirt and vice versa.

We perform celtic music from the Renaissance through the Early American time periods. As such we perform in "period costume" which often includes the "Great Kilt" or more correctly, "The Belted Plaid". We perform at Museums, Renaissance Faires, and various Celtic Festivals and Highland Games throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region as far North as NY and as far south as NC.

At the Maryland Renaissance Festival, one of our standard places to perform is on top of the Middleton Tavern ( see picture: http://members.prestige.net/TomLori/Gallery/Gallry2000/MDRF2000/DSC00031.jpg )

All this said to introduce the following discourse:

We get tired of the tired old standard kilt jokes, but once in a while a patron will ask me:

"Isn't it a little daring to stand so close to the edge?"

Answer: "Not unless you have something to hide!"

Skarpi - Sounds like you need to get a kilt of your own! If MY lady friend was that interested in kilts I'd definately get one and model it for her.

Second point. Also remember that the traditional kilt/tartan is more of a wrap around thing made with quite a lot of fabric - it wasn't exactly a skirt that could "fly-up" in a gust of wind.

Third point. ummm - hell, I don't have one - but it's 85 degrees (F) here in sunny Florida.

Skarpi - If you are going to wear a kilt then it's probably best to avoid "Hard Feelings" anyway - might be a bit too obvious. I've never worn a kilt - but if your girlfiend really wants to know what's under one - perhaps I ought to get one and volunteer myself. I think maybe, though, that she should satisfy her curiosity with you.

Poor Skarpi it sounds like its all getting too much. Lady folks the world over be aware you are VERY welcome to come over to Scotland and discover what's under our kilts. We will deem it an honour to educate our cousins from overseas.

Skarpi when in Edinburgh get yourself alongto the folk club at the Cafe Royal, and ask if they still hold Ceilidhs at the Assembly rooms in George St. I've not been for a while myself, but there's usually enough birling to make the answer to your lady friend's question self-evident.

Correct, it's approximately 7 to 9 yards long and 40" wide, pleated in the back and wrapped around and belted, thus the term the "Belted Plaid", however it does "fly-up" in a gust of wind, I've both seen and experienced it myself. Couple years ago at National Tartan Day in D.C. the wind picked up and my partner said, "I hope you're wearing something under there..."

How goes things at the Pleasance? I take my 10 year old daughter with me, would she be welcome?

I also had it in mind to go down to Haddington sometime, any info there?

Your daughter would be more than welcome, the Club is always delighted to see young recruits. It is also a no-smoking venue as far as I remember (I haven't been back to Britain for a few years).

Haddington Folk Club is great. Wonderfully friendly, but probably not as suitable for a ten year old. Davie Robertson, who wrote "Star of the Bar" is a regular there. Meetings used to be on Wednesdays (maybe still are ), same night as Edinburgh Club, unfortunately.

I take it you go to the "first Tuesday of the month" meeting in Balerno? Used to be in the Grey Horse, but I think they changed the venue.

Murray,

Knowing Davy Robertson's 'The Hanky' I understand perfectly why you'd say any club with him as a regular isn't suitable for 10 year olds:-)

Sorry about this, but I am piddling with laughter at the thought of telling someone off for being rude in a thread about what is under the kilt......
I dare say I'm missing some history somewhere, but it seems that some people are allowed to be rude & some aren't. Some cats more equal than others??

Sheeshe. This thread musta sunk in subliminally-- last night the Three Stooges episode had them in Scotland wearing kilts. I had this frightening momentary flash of a vision of their "wee little men" being miniature versions of their Stoogely selves. Scary antics.

Skarpi: I think you misread my message. It was not I that called you a "dumb ass." I said you were "anything but," which was said in your defense.

Someone else did, out of anger, and I know for a fact that he regrets it. The anger, I am sure, was really not directed at you anyway.

I don't make it a practice to attack anyone (I might make some snide remarks in the political threads from time to time I admit)on the Mudcat. You have never given me cause to criticize you in anyway. I think you are a good guy.

Kris, I think you are indeed missing some history. There is a difference between light-hearted risqué humor and in -your-face obscenity. Check out the "Sears Catalog model thread" for a further example of that.

Of course, we know now that Bob has severe problems but when he was taken to task on this thread we didn't know that.

Murray,

No Balerno met in the Kestrel Bar up until last year when they moved to the rugby club.

It was Davie Robertson's apparent participation that made me interested in H'ton as I'm a big "Star of the Bar" fan. Is that a one-off or does he have more of that calibre?

I guess I ahould get myself along and find out huh.

Sorry I've jsut realised this has nothing to do with kilts. THREAD CREEP...sorry

Zipster, Davie has many songs of that calibre. IMHO some of them are even better. If you search the Forum using the filter box and input "Noran Water" (Or is it "Norran Water") you will find a parody of Jim Reid's song written by Davie.

The first Tuesday in Balerno (which used to be and may still be held in the Grey Horse) is NOT the Folk Club meeting, btw, it is an informal singaround led my Morag Dunbar. It is a really enjoyable evening, as I recollect.

Thread creep be buggered, post away ....

Murray, thanks for that. It should be enough to get me down to Haddington, I've been thinking of going for ages

The Balerno evening sounds good as well, though I'm always intimidated by sing-rounds. Lets just say I make a better audience than I do a performer.

Where are you based now?

PS Genie I'd noticed that too, I think we're seeing the global effect of "Friends"

We use the term "regimental" at our Renaissance Faires. Though why anybody would want to wear a short wool skirt with no underwear to sit around on hay bales in 95 degree weather is beyond me. There are such things as tiny bugs called hay bale mites...I would also like to remind gentlemen who are not used to wearing skirts to be very aware of how they sit when wearing kilts! ;-)

Heck - the wool constantly rubbing would be a pain at the very least. That's why I wear underwear anyhow - to avoid wear and tear on the dangly bits.

Scotmen average around 5ft 10 inches tall. Thistles grow about three foot high. That's why I find it hard to believe that the highlanders wore nothing under their kilts!!!

Scotsmen may average 5ft 10. I'm A 6ft 7 Scot and always wear underpants under the kilt for fear of wee Edinburgh grannies sneaking a a peek at what dangles there.

The thought of their laghter ringing along Prince's Street is painfult to imagine.

What do Americans wear under their trousers? What do American girls wear under their skirts? Smirk smirk, giggle behind your hand. This is the kind of question that drives me away from Mudcat in despair at the sad stereotypes that infest it. My ancestors wore the kilt, but not the sewn / military one currently affected by the affected and those in the fashion, plus three reasonable people who I know, who wear it in and out of the fashion, in the city or collecting the sheep up the hills. What is under the scalp of the people who keep mauling this dead rabbit? Porridge for brains, I fear.

On the sidetrack about Haddington Folk Club and Davie Robertson, it depends on the ten-year-old.... I went with my mum when I was about that age (it was in the Pheasant then) and was always made very welcome. I have fond memories of Davie singing 'Sairly Plagued by the Wind'

Long long ago I was a very bad highland dancer. The Scottish Official Board of Highland Dancing decreed that we should wear black briefs beneath our kilts when dancing. A friend went into one of the better department stores and asked for a pair. The clerk said, "Does your MOTHER know you're buying those?" So much for the SOBHD.

I knew a kid in a pipe band, who wore a very elaborate uniform. When we kidded him about it, he kidded back telling everyone that he had $500 worth of plaid underwear under it. Now, when you are 15 that is a challenge. So three of us bought a pair of plaid boxer shorts and sent them to him for his birthday. Mother spent years avoiding his mother, because they fit, and the good lady would never believe we had guessed his size.

At an SCA event, one of the Scots was quite drunk. Some female asked him what he had under his kilt, he whooped and pulled it up to show her. She reacted like she'd never seen one before. (And I know for a fact she'd seen several.) Screamed and hid her face.
He was so pleased with the reaction that he showed Justinian, our resident fop.
Justinian eyed the display, clucked his tongue and said, "Is that all?"
