The question remains whether this garment would be considered "Acceptable Highland Dress", as I have not seen anyone wearing anything like this to compete or perform in. Discuss.

Let's look at those rules, shall we...

Quote:
2.10 Acceptable Highland Dress
2.10.1 Competitors may be prevented from competing and accepting trophies onstage for not wearing acceptable and properly worn highland dress. Kilt (or trews), shirt, hose and shoes are the minimum requirement. For beginners, dress pants, shirt and shoes (for boys or girls) & skirt, blouse & shoes (for girls) are acceptable.
I don't see anything in those regulations relating to the material, construction, or style of dress other than saying kilt or trews, shirt, hose, and shoes. One could wear the 5.11 Kilt and a 5.11 polo shirt, and by that definition be "acceptable" to the association.

Competitive piping requires "highland dress" is usually how it's stated. Would that not include trews? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trews

And I guess I should have stated that my new kilt is for solo competing and non band performances.

Yeah, I guess trews count, didn't come to mind. I've never seen them for sale.

Iv had a green camo kilt for years,it started a mini trend in the local community,even some of those who didn't get one secretly wanted it to but it takes balls to wear one! Plus triple bonus they only cost 27 instead of 300-400! Shame it fizzled out wen everyone started thinking we was barking! Mines screwed up under the bed! Think I might resurrect it!

Best guess is that the credit card companies won't let them accept pre-orders for international shipment. Check the thread on XMarks for more details.

The boss lady and her friends have been in Seattle all week end and she said last night she nearly bought me a utilikilt but couldn't decide on color. I have seen lots of chaps wearing them and I do wonder why but I don't find them offensive and they seem to suit the guys (bald, big muscles) I saw wearing them. You can pay nearly $500 for these things and I said for that money I can buy a real kilt. Is there such a thing as a wash n wear bumming around kilt?

From the shop in Pioneer Square? Great city, can't wait to go back. Taking the ferry to Vancouver is on the list for the next trip.


Oops, was that "not piping related"?
