5 Reasons We Love Kilts

by | Jul 6, 2023 | All About Kilts, Categorized

We have said it here at Ozkilts® that wearing a utility kilt is more than just a fashion statement. The difference, is most people have no idea that wearing one can have different benefits.

A kilt is a piece of clothing that is known for being efficient in many ways. One undeniable benefit that wearing a kilt give is that it adds charm to you and your appearance.

In much the same way as wearing a suit, a kilt gives its wearer a sense of pride about themselves. Think of the iconic opening scenes of the movie Reservoir Dogs (1992), but the actors are in kilts, instead of suits.

5 Reasons We Love Kilts by Ozkilts Wearing a kilt also helps in building your confidence, especially if you meet up with other kilties at events where kilt wearing is normal. It feels fantastic to wear kilts at special events such as weddings, where you will stand out from the crowd of men wearing typical suits.

Being noticed in a kilt is what we consider a benefit, that is, if you like or enjoy being noticed. We are not discounting those, of course, who are more comfortable blending slightly into the background.

A kilt can be worn to almost any occasion, making it one of the most versatile garments available out there. Apart from the reasons we already stated, let’s dive deeper and explore our 5 Top Reasons why we love kilts.


1.  Kilts are comfortable

Perhaps the first observation first time kilt wearers say is how comfortable wearing a kilt can be. And we agree! Wearing a kilt is great. It provides a different sense of comfort no other piece of garment can give.

Additionally, you can wear your kilt in comfort as a daily attire or casual wear. That means you’ll be the only man among many who is wearing a kilt.

If you want to wear a kilt and join that lone wolf in a kilt, it’s not a problem at all. We at Ozkilts® provide a wide range of kilt styles to meet your sense of style.


2.  Kilts keep you cool

We can honestly say that wearing a kilt makes you look cool, but what you may not realise is that it can also keep you feeling cool. You will realise this when it is totally hot outside, and you will compare how cool wearing a kilt feels as compared to trousers in a hot climate.

Trousers will make you sweat, whereas a kilt will keep you cool, if you choose the right fabric. Ozkilts® Utility Kilts are made from 100% quality cotton stretch fabric that is breathable. They are comfortable, durable and can be worn by all genders without any spurious comment.


3.  Superb freedom of movement

If you are an active person or at a job that requires manual labour, you know how difficult it is to move in regular pants, even if they are loose enough. When your movement is restricted, it becomes tedious to perform your job or activity.

Kilts come to the rescue in situations like these. Kilts not only provide you with comfort, but also allow you to move freely. Wearing one liberates you from the feeling of being trapped, and you’ll be able to do what it is you have to do with efficiency. 


4.  Kilts are durable

Another great advantage of having a utility kilt is that it is highly durable. You can wear them whenever you like, and you don’t have to worry about it easily getting ripped or torn apart.

This reason is why many people prefer acquiring utility kilts over any type of kilts.

Additionally, kilts were also found to positively impact spermatogenesis, what this means is, wearing a kilt improves sperm quality and thus providing better fertility. Good news for couples who are trying to conceive children.

Kilts help prevent deep vein thrombosis and regulates body temperature that affects spermatogenesis.



Kilts are affordable

Yes, we acknowledge that acquiring traditional kilts is quite expensive, and with good and valid reasons too. However, a modern utility kilt, though can also be considered an investment, is not all that expensive as compared to its traditional counterpart. Plus, you get various styles to choose from to suit your taste and sense of style and fashion.
