A friend emailed me these photos. I don't know the etiquette—don't know where they came from, who took them, who the subjects are (aside of true kilt-wearers).
But it was such a lovely photo essay—one that so clearly indicated the proper way to wear a kilt (along with some gaffe's and some clear gaps in lessons learned on "how to sit cross-legged in a skirt")—that I just had to share.
I remember with the success of Liam Neeson in Rob Roy, I got phone calls from journalists asking "Did you know that men in skirts were romantic?" Duh! I responded: "Men in skirts, men wrapped in bedsheets—Scots, Sheiks, we are on it. Wake up!"
This one is my favorite. I keep searching his face to see if this was planned... He seems rather vacuously cheerful—and surely there are easier ways to lose your job—though perhaps he needed his 15 minutes of fame. Still...!
Now you know. Happy New Year!
