The Missus, Young Son and I were touring around downtown Seattle when we came across this establishment. Given our Irish/Scots roots and the chance to see men in kilts we felt compelled to enter the store.
The young man working in the store was pleasant and wearing a kilt so we know that he walked the walk or in this case, wore the kilt. I resisted asking what he was wearing under the kilt. the Utilikilt is a heavy duty work kilt, seemingly stout enough to resist a .303 ball round or the teeth of a charging lion. I started to see myself in a Utilikilt and thought that the sight would be too frightening so I backed away from the idea of trying one on. Young son was braver than I and went for it. Young Son felt that it was the real him but we had to pass on buying one right now.
A Scotsman once said the kilt is excellent for two things, neither of which I can repeat in this blog.

|It is good to know that this store takes safety very seriously!|
|Young Son looking manly in his Utilikilt. I can see that this might be the garment for me hiking in the mountains and the desert. Nice and cool! I liked the one on the half manikin in the background.|
