If you are ready to free yourself from the tyranny of trousers, then you must know where to buy kilts for men. No longer interested in bifurcated bloomers? If ladies can wear pants, why can't men wear skirts? Or in this case, a kilt? No longer just for bravehearts honoring their Scottish ancestry, the men pioneering the modern clansman's wear are interested in the masculine freedom without the constriction of pants. Traditionally, many skirt-like garments have been worn by men throughout history, including, but not limited to, the kilt. Tunics, sarongs, robes and caftans are other skirt-like pieces of apparel that have been replaced, over the ages and in certain cultures especially, by an unspoken rule about wearing pants as a badge of manhood. Throw off the culture shackles and enjoy the benefits of an open environment around your anatomy, the way nature always intended.
However, not every hot-blooded Scot-at-heart has a kilt clothier within reach down the road. For those living where pants reign, do your nether regions a favor and hop online, where a fine selection of kilts awaits you. If your aim is to honor your ancestry, an authentic kilt fashioned by Heritage of Scotland is the way to go. Search for your clan's distinguishing fabric, or browse over 5,000 unique Tartans for a kilt that is truly your own. Become part of the legacy of the bravehearts.
For more modern men, an updated version of a kilt might be a more functional investment. Utilikilts, or American-made kilts for everyday wear, seeks to bridge the divide between the ancient and the new with a masculine garment made to be sweat in. Fashioned from rugged fabrics in your favorite colors such as khaki, army green, black, and the ever-popular camouflage, the Utilikilt has updated the design with the addition of features like cargo pockets, belt loops, and studs. Don't worry about working hard in a Utilikilt! Not only does every tool have a pocket for easy access, but the free-flowing air feature allows you to regulate your body temperature. Whether you are on the roof, hauling rocks, nailing studs, or tussling on the moor, you'll be the most man you can be in a Utilikilt.
Maybe you prefer the best of both worlds. Combine the elegance of ancient lore and clan colors with the durability of modern fabrics, the Sports Kilt features highlights from kilts across the ages. With more wearable styling, these kilts go from boardroom to bedroom, from office to outdoors. Offered in several specific designs, such as the hiking kilt, team kilt, or comfy kilt, this garment keeps Scottish heritage alive while allowing for modern flexibility.
Tired of people asking why you're wearing a skirt? Or, perhaps you are looking for a community of brethren who share your feelings of freedom? Then head to Kiltmen.com, where you can read up on the Bravehearts, a global group of men who seek to bring skirt consciousness to the world while supporting each other in the movement. If you consider yourself a kilt kinsman, then this is your clan.
