If you’re a longtime reader, y’all might remember seeing my husband, Sam, in a kilt. Even as recently as last month! (If not, then do yourself a favor and soak up some Scottish blue steel here, here and here.) My husband’s heritage is part Scottish — proudly of the Clan Fraser — and he’s worn his classic “Fraser red” tartan kilt several times. That kilt is fancier, so my husband also got a more casual “cargo kilt” a couple of years ago for versatility. The style is also called a “utility kilt” or “utilikit” for short.
This one’s made of thick
canvas twill and has extra cargo pockets. It’s perfect for hiking, and my husband also wears it for work sometimes or occasions that have a dress code somewhere inbetween casual and fancy. This is what my husband wore to a recent JASNA event, and he dressed up the cargo kilt a bit with a grey button-down and brown Oxfords.
And behold the handsomeness:
I mean, right?! Gotta love a man in a kilt! There’s something so down-to-earth and sexy about a man in a kilt. Perhaps it’s the confidence of the man wearing it. Sam always gets a ton of compliments when he’s out wearing a kilt — and sometimes I even get random compliments for supporting him wearing a kilt! It’s my pleasure. 😀
He still is sporting the Fraser connection — this time with his tie, which is in the “Fraser hunting” tartan. (This is my personal favorite of the Fraser tartans, by the way.) Sam also has a necktie in the classic “Fraser red” tartan, which he always wears on the first day of teaching!
Hope y’all liked a bit of Scottish flavor to your week!
