My boyfriend wears a Kilt (not a plaid) about once a week.  It is a teal green, flat pannel in the front, and pleated on the sides and back.  I goes from his waist to about the middle of his kneecap.  It has belt loops, and no pockets.  However he is getting a Utilikilt for his birthday.  Same style, just with cargo pockets on the sides.  We get stared at all the time.  Everyone on campus that has seen him is amazed, I watched a girl almost drop her tray in the dining hall.  We scare little old ladies in town, they clutch their purses close to their bodies.  I will admit he is 6'3" Shaved head, and Big bushy beard.  But the nicest guy ever.

I, too, want to mention the thickness of the insert fabric. As was mentioned by Jillie, if it's too much softer there will be problems with the flow and all that. Corduroy, twill, more denim, something like that would hang better.

Looks like the actual construction process has been covered, though.

Opinion on length, I'd go full length. You'll get a lot less grief. It just...looks better.

I knew a couple guys in HS who wore skirts. Even better, there was an English teacher who had this one student twice before & the kid kept failing the class. So the 3rd time he got the kid in his class he made a deal with the kid, if the kid passes, the teacher would wear a skirt to school the last full day of the year. Kid passed with a B. The teacher borrowed the skirt he wore from one of my friends. Good stuff.

Wow a sudden influx of replies, fantastic!  Grin

Righty then, i shall stsrt the answeringness

Melladh: Well i'm kinda going for an androgynous kinda look (as in, genderless appearence, to be specific) so feminine is fine with me, i've got stripey leg warmer things i can wear if i don't fancy shaving my legs lol. I have the skinniest little legs though, so i'll probly be fine.

I was thinking about using the main part of the jeans as a skirt to wear on its own, but with the off-cuts i could make a skirt to wear over jeans, but that will come later.

globox: Thankies  Cheesy I'd quite like that to happen to me, lol. on a slightly odd note, the hospitals around here keep thinking i am a girl, named eugine. go figure  Huh

j_en: Thanks for the link, just reading through it now  Smiley

July_July: Well, i do own a pair of docs, but they're leather and i've since turned vegetarian and animal rights-ey now since buying them, so i tend to avoid my leather stuff nowadays. Though i do have a pair of new-rocks which would be awesome to wear with a skirt... hmm..

Jillie: Hmm... i did not think about the weight, i'll try and run some offcuts of denim behind the tarten to re-enforce it, i'll be adding bodage strap type things and chains and whatnot too, so i can pull things around a little bit hopefully.

rachikus: My style toootally changes all the time, i seem to go through phases of goth, punk, and grunde/hippy thing. As a result my wardrobe is a mismatch of hemp, studded things, and black.  Roll Eyes

spaz2phreek: Full length, hmm. I'm not sure, i was kinda aiming for those types of baggy shorts alternative kids wear with spikes and chains, only in skirt form. The monstrocity i end up making will probly half resemble a skirt if i'm lucky  Tongue

misplacedhippie: Pockets! I sooo nearly forgot pockets, i should make some from tartan to go on the black denim, awesome...

Thanks again dudes and dudettes, off to work on it some more  Cheesy

I'm an old lady and I love men in skirts! Kilts, skirts, doesn't matter, I wish there were more of you. Sexy, sexy, sexy...wish I could get my Beloved to wear one...I put the bug in his ear every so often.
