Great find on Ebay

Well it came today in the mail. I made a great find on eBay, which I THOUGHT was OD Green, like I reported in the last post. But when it arrived it turned out to be a black kilt. To be honest, I do not mind, one can never have to many kilts.

You can see the sporran that I also got on eBay and the kilt belt, also on eBay. You have to keep your eyes open to get good deals. This kilt was $25 and only worn once. Tags are in tact and it really good shape.

I am pleased and can't wait to debut it in public. All around I am pleased with the purchase.

Getting some new kilts in a few days

Well I am excited, I have two kilts that I will be getting this week.

First is a UTK Deluxe Dark Gray Utilikilt and the other is an OD Green Deluxe Utilikilt.

Both of these are Ebay find and I am proud to get them at a good price. The OD Green was a steal for $25.00 and just my size. 

When I get them, I will post some picts of me wearing them.

Getting The Tooth Pulled

Even Real Men have to have teeth pulled. I hate the dentist. Well not the guy himself, but the act of going. I am one who does not care for going to doctors and such.

But I had to have a tooth pulled and it is looking like I might have a couple more needed and then on top of that, a plate put in. Oh joy.

Then I think that once I have this done I will not have to only eat the soft food and that maybe I can eat more things, which is a good thing for us kilt wearing men.

Needless to say, I am not fond of the dentist. He is doing his job and as much as I hate admiting it, he is doing it pretty well.

Once I get the work done, I hope to be able to partake in much of the food items that I have missed over the months.

Just so you know, real men who wear kilts, well the dentist is one of those things that the magic aura of the kilt does not help.. at least not much.

Kilts Equals Freedom

I have a new favorite book. It is called "Kiltology Volume 1: Words of Wisdom for the Kilted Universe" By Kevin M. Thompson

It is a great book, easy to read and filled with a lot of great kilt wisdom.

One of those wisdoms is 

Kiltology #7

It is your kilt, wear it as you wish.

Anyone who tells you otherwise can fork over the hundreds or thousands of dollars necessary to meet their definition of "properly kilted". Living "properly kilted" is VERY expensive.

I like to peruse the kilt forums and group pages on Facebook. You get to see a lot of cool kilts and kilt accessories.

While checking out some of the Facebook pages I ran across one of my favorited kilt makers "North of Hadrian's Kilts and Celtic clothing" they just created a new video displaying their goods. Jackson is the owner and provides great customer service.

 Here is his vidoe that he produced --

I was thankful that Jackson shared the video and then we had a person who was kind of showing off their kilt knowledge complaining about the footware they saw in the video.

Great, one of those kilt-know-it-alls and the person is a woman to boot.

Folks, everything goes well with a kilt, it is the freedom that kilts exude and represents. We are not confined to the vogue trends and such which is the wonderful thing about kilts.

So if you are a kiltie, and someone comes up expressing their fashion opinion, tip your hat and let them know that it is your kilt and you will wear it and accessorize it any way that one should want.

When one wears a kilt, one has freedom.

No Shave November

Hey all,

Well it is No Shave November. To be honest I have always sported a beard and I can only think of several times where I shaved it in the last 20+ years.

Thing is that I can not remember if I have ever grown it out. So I have taken the No Shave challenge and going to see if I can grow my beard out.

The first pict is of me starting out in the last week of October. 

This is a pict of me Nov 8th 2014. I have been trying to shape it and you can see it is a little longer and I am trying to shape it to be more tapered. 

 I will add more updates as the month progresses. This will be a lot of fun.
