The avant-garde kilt

Scottish men do not consider the kilt a skirt but a distinctive garment in its own right. This is primarily because of its unique design - a pleated section at the back with two overlapping flat aprons at the front.
However, since the 1960s, many designers have produced "fashionable" versions of the kilt in an attempt to blur the lines between the kilt and the skirt.
