Merry Christmas "A Year In A Kilt" fans! Well, we're coming to the close of 2011 and that means it will soon be 2012 and moving ever so closer to my year in a kilt. The first part of 2012 will allow me to try out my kilts in more situations so keep checking in to the site for updates.
For Christmas I decided to wear my Wallace Hunting kilt I purchased from Sport Kilt. I have two other Sport Kilts, one which I reviewed earlier. The description of "The Works Kilt" on the Sport Kilt website says:
"The Works Kilt" is our world-famous Sport Kilt with four custom options already included.
The Works Sport Kilt includes:
- Belt Loops
- Sewn Down Pleats
- Fringed Front Panel Edge
- Leather Buckle Strap Closures
The material is the same great Sport Kilt poly-blend (no itch!) fabric with superb "swing" and "drape". It's Cool, (No wool!) Machine washable, and holds a crisp pleat well. Each also features our original velcro closure, and elastic in the waistband for comfort and fit, with just a bit of give. Each includes a hidden, 5 by 6 inch stash pocket behind the front panel waistband.
As was the case for my other Sport Kilt, the Wallace Hunting kilt is extremely comfortable. I had to drive almost two hours while wearing this kilt and the pleats stayed nice and straight. It is a lighter weight kilt so if it had been colder I might have complained a bit. Fortunately it was a warmer Christmas so there was no problem. I'm sure I'll have plenty opportunities to test the kilt in colder weather during the next couple months. Regardless this is a great kilt and I look forward to wearing it in 2012!
