I could also be from standing on a hard surface with the wrong shoes.

One of the biggest things is, I think, that the kilt does something to the core muscles that's not completely natural. I used to work a factory job on my feet all day and I'd be fine, but six hours in a kilt would leave me with an aching back. After spending a few weeks in a kilt, though, it would go away.
