Occasionally, at a renaissance faire
you will find men who have made the choice to wear kilts
. This choice is not an easy one, from deciding that they don't mind being men in skirts
to finding out how to wear a great kilt
There does, however, tend to be just one problem.
Not everything that is considered plaid by Americans is a tartan. I don't mean that one has to wear an official tartan of a given clan; at the time that was period for faires and the SCA, clans did not have specific tartans.
What I mean is that taking that plaid tablecloth that has that pattern you find at Italian restaurants is not a good idea. It makes you part of Clan Pizza Hut, and Scotsmen who know better will laugh at you behind your back.
