You might ask, what’s the big deal with a lot of people around the globe over a piece of clothing? Well, let us enlighten you. People kilt up for a number of reasons: to try something new, as a display of masculinity and manliness, as a fashion statement, and other reasons.
But for many kilt wearers worldwide, Australians included, the garment has popped up a number of times in men’s fashion in various forms. We’ve seen it in shows, a few runway collections and fashion campaigns. To say it has been booming is putting it mildly.
The kilt has been reborn thanks to a combination of people’s increasing approach to no label or gender approach to style, alleviated by a bold post-pandemic style of dressing. With respect to its Gaelic origins, modern interpretations of the traditional kilt are bold and demand attention in a way no pair of pants ever could. How awesome is that?
When it comes to wearing a kilt and going mainstream, perhaps no one can dispute Harry Styles’ contribution to the canon. Styles was the first celebrity to appear solo on the cover of US Vogue in the mag that featured not one, but two kilted looks.
Kilted Up, Suited, and in Boots.
All this talk of kilts is great, but what if you’d need to attend an occasion in formal wear? Can you attend the event in a kilt with a dress shirt and tailored suit jacket to, say, a friend’s wedding?
To which we say: yes! Trust us, you’ll be in the spotlight, dead centre in your formal suit jacket, your kilt, and your boots. And who can blame them? It has already gained the status and foothold that charms both wearers and onlookers.
Want to go but not be too ‘flashy’? Not a problem. Choose one in black with a tux, and it is more than enough to be subdued and different, but still enough to steal the show.
Time to Kilt Up and join the Kilted Clan.
With the Australian summer already in full swing, and with the summer festival season underway left and right, it’s the perfect time to kilt up. As far as modern utility kilts are concerned, there are no fashion rules or boundaries that may discourage you to bond with like-minded kilt wearers to congregate and have some good ‘ol Aussie fun.
Seeing men wearing utility kilts the world over may not be all too common yet, but the good news is, there’s no longer a need for them to justify why they are wearing it. This can be attributed largely to visionary designers such as Goddard and the late Virgil Abloh who reimagined the historic garment into modernity.
International celebrities wear them on the red carpet, Harry Styles got featured on US Vogue in a kilt. A rapper named Lord Ramar even wrote a whole song about the kilt. To say the kilt is now everywhere, is an understatement.
