    Mr Boyce; Its a Scottish thing...only an English twit would suspect a kilt had any thing to do with sex(or a lack of it). Metrosexual...bollocks! Sounds like a bleedin' bar fo' barmy ol' men in trenchcoats!

        The kilt is a fad that I wish would just die. contrary to what kilt wearers beleive it does not look good. I don't care of any percieved historical significance.

          After you talk your Scouts into kilts, what methods do you have to coax them into mini skirts and white knee high boots?(This message has been edited by seattlepioneer)

            A fad by definition passes quickly, as this thread was resurrected after 3 years might cause some to say this is more than a fad.

              That's your opinion, and it's my family heritage. Also, scouting has a Scottish background with Woodbadge. There is an official Tarten patern and the Woodbadge use the Mclearen Tarten as their offical patern. Maybe you should think about that before you start stomping on others background. And here is many examples of Scouts in Kilts, and there are also examples in the original Scout books. You can find many examples of Scouts in Kilts including the old Scout books.

                I wore the kilt part of the time at Jambo 2010. No problems. I often wear one on cruises for formal night, and the ladies love it. (It's the most strongly male apparel around.)

                For those with no Scottish family connections, there are many other tartans available. Carolina Tartan, California, Texas Bluebonnet, U.S.A. tartan, Marine Corps Tartan, Confederate Memorial, and many others. Hunting Stewart is another that is traditionally acceptable for non-Scots.

                Fad? That's hilarious; fads don't stay around for hundreds of years.

                    A kilt is not part of the BSA uniform, Woodbadge neckerchief tartan, Scottish history, and personal likes notwithstanding.

                      Not true there is a guide to wearing a kilt on the Wood Badge site.

                            I don't know what anybody has against the kilt. As a direct descendant of a MacLaren who died on the field at Culloden, I wear it proudly and once had a troop honor guard that wore the tartan and appropriate regalia for special occasions. One of our reviewers was Bill Hillcourt, who heartily approved.

                            As to it being a fad, it's been fairly popular in Scotland for over 400 years. I have pictures of Lord Rowallan, Chief Scout of Great Britain wearing his clan kilt at Schiff in the 1940's.

                              The link you provided is a paper written by a member of The Clan MacLaren Society. It's just a personal opinion. Give us something from the Insignia Guide or BSA about kilts. Anyone can and will wear other stuff with the BSA uniform, but it's only a personal thing. BSA does not endorse kilts or other additions/subtractions from the uniform other than what BSA has published.

                              To Kahuna, it's not that there is objections to kilts or Scottish history or tradtions. The objection is when someone says that it is OK to mix one with the BSA uniform or that BSA or Woodbadge endorses it.
