No, nothing is worn under a kilt, unless dancing, when swimmingtrunks or jockey shorts are permissible to prevent embarrassment(of the onlooker not the dancer, why should he be embarrassed?) There is a joke about this. Posh lady: Tell me Mr McDonald isanything worn under the kilt? McDonald: No Ma'am… it is all inperfect working order. It is an old wives tale that nothing is worn under the kilt andonly practised by over-zealous and ignorant jocks. Anything can be worn under the kilt but the wearer is not supposedto answer questions as to what is being worn. (MORE)

Yes, a kilt is a skirt. Most dictionaries give the definition as a noun (skirt) or as a verb (to kilt, meaning to fit or equip [a person] with a kilt, or to kilt a garment). The word came into English early in the seventeenth century, traceable back to Scandanavian terms meaning 'to kilt': to tu…ck (a garment) up, leaving the lower legs free. The Old Norse word is kjalta , probably pronounced similarly to our current pronunciation of kilt . The Gaelic kilt, originally recorded in the 1700s as menswear in the northern Scottish Highlands, was a garment designed to have part of it thrown over the shoulder; it was known in English as the 'great kilt'. The mini version, the lower part of the 'great kilt' arrived late in the 17 th century, and by the beginning of the 19 th century was becoming a Scottish cultural symbol. Kilts, and similar skirts, have traditionally been, and are still, worn in other parts of the world by men in situations from everyday wear to formal and military dress; we see depictions of Romans wearing something similar, and the garment certainly goes back to a previous millennium. Today, kilts are sometimes worn by Western men as a fashion item, frequently as part of a suit. While the traditional men's Scottish kilt, a heavy garment of tartan, pleated at the back and fastened at the lower front with a brooch, frequently shaped like sword, is associated with Scottish Gaelic culture, it is also used as traditional wear in other Celtic cultures. The Irish kilt was not traditionally patterned, but now is frequently made of a tartan fabric. Kilts, once worn only by men, are now worn by all ages and sexes, especially in Celtic cultural festivals and as uniforms in Celtic bands and dancing troupes. Like all things traditional, the origin and history of the kilt that we might think of as Gaelic or Celtic is subject to speculation, discussion, and even heated debate. The fact that the Celts go right across Great Britain and through Europe to the Mediterranean, via Bretagne in France to Galicia in Spain, and these warmer areas still celebrate a lively Celtic history and culture, makes it all more interesting. Regardless of its origin, though, a kilt was, and is still, a skirt. See the link below for illustrations and examples of kilts in formal, traditional, and casual wear. (MORE)
Tartan (kilt) did indeed originate in Ireland, which was introduced to the then unnamed country of Scotland by the Scots, who moved from Ireland to re-found their ancient kingdom, Dalriada and gave the Scotland its name. The very first form of tartan is nothing like its modern day counterpart; it be…ing a form of shirt that ended just above the knee - known as lÃ©ine in Irish Gaelic. For the source and more detailed information concerning this subject, click on the related links section indicated below. . Tartan and Kilt are 2 separate items. The kilt is the national dress of Scotland and the 'tartan' describes the colours and pattern on the kilt.. The Kilt did NOT originate in Ireland.

Of course. Answer. Some do, some don't. Answer: Underwear is more commonly worn when engaging in dancing or athletic events where centrifugal forces may change the focus of the spectators attention (O wad some Pow'r the giftie gie us To see oursels as others see us!) In the military they a…re not supposed to wear underwear I was told. Answer: Although the correct answer of what a Scot wears under his kilt is, in most cases, socks and shoes, this is a frequent topic in Scot's humour: Lass (to kilted lad in bar): ... and what is worn under your kilt? Lad: Nothing lassie. I assure you everything is in good working condition. (MORE)
Wearing pants is entirely optional. It is traditional that Scottish military regiments wore no underwear beneath the kilt and were routinely inspected by walking over a glass panel under which an officer looked to see that each man complied. Other regiments used a mirror on the end of a stick to obt…ain the same result.. These days, probably the majority of men, especially young men would wear pants but more traditional men, myself included "go commando".. As a kilt, made of 16 or 18 oz woolen cloth is quite heavy, in winter the upper legs are quite warm, so no underwear is really necessary, while in summer, being well ventilated, likewise there is no need.. Occasionally, there is a danger of exposing oneself, if poor posture is observed when sitting, or crouching, but most kilt wearers are well aware of the dangers and are safely covered at all times..

A kilt should be dry cleaned. Most are made of wool, and so should be treated accordingly.
The Great Kilt is also known as the "breacan an fheilidh" or "feile mor". The first known reference to this mode of dress was made in 1594 in The Life of Red Hugh O'Donnell in a description of a corps of Hebrideans who had come to The O'Donnell's assistance: "They were recognised among the Irish sol…diers by the distinction of their arms and clothing, their habits and language, for their exterior dress was mottled cloaks of many colours with a fringe to their shins and calves, their belts were over their loins outside their cloaks.". The Great Kilt was made from wool, often grown on one's own sheep. It could take a year for someone to shear and spin enough wool to make one kilt. The yarn would then be taken to the local weaver to weave into cloth. Looms of the time wove a piece of cloth 27" wide and up to 30" wide. And, like today, cloth is easiest to handle if it doesn't get to be too much of it. Today when you by cloth it comes on a bolt. The thinner the cloth, the more that is on the bolt; the thicker the cloth, the less is on the bolt. A finely made silk may have 30 yards on the bolt, but once folded and wrapped, it would constitute about 8" thick by 21"-30" long. (MORE)

The word for Scotland in classical Latin was Caledonia , named for its inhabitants, whom the Romans called Caledones . A singular form of this noun is not recorded. However, the adjective Caledonius , "Caledonian," did exist, and Latin regularly used adjectives as nouns, so the term Caledonius …for "a Caledonian" would certainly have been understood. In Later Latin Scotland became known as Scotia, a name that had originally referred to Ireland (the Scoti were raiders from Ireland who harried British shores during the Roman occupation). In Medieval times the corresponding adjective scotus was used to refer to Scotsmen; the most famous example is the philosopher Johannes Duns Scotus , " John Duns the Scotsman", from whose name we - unjustly - get the term "dunce." Duns Scotus was reknowned for his intellect in his own time, and was nicknamed Doctor Subtilis , which is to say "Subtle Teacher." (MORE)

The "kilt" is, at its simplest, a piece of cloth or even an animal hide wrapped around a person's waist. It could be said to be the earliest of all garments and its origin reaching back to prehistory. if by kilt you mean the complex folded and pleated garment worn by Scottish and Irish clans which i…ncorporate traditional woven patterns to identify family ties, then the kilt goes back to Scotland in the 16th century. It first appeared as the "great kilt" (a full-length garment) then as a small kilt or walking kilt more like the "modern" kilt.It actually originated from france. from contributor benjamin markiewicz if you dont want to read all of that the answer is scotland (MORE)

I believe Charles McIntosh experimented with latex to make tyres somewhere in the early 1800's.

That was in 1888, though he was beaten by Robert W Thomson apparently, who patented a pneumatic rubber tyre in 1845. (MORE)
Many Scots today more commonly wear pants. The kilt was never a universal garment for all Scots, but it was confined in use to the Highlands of Scotland, originally. Before the kilt was developed in the Highlands, the Gaelic peoples often wore a long tunic called a leine with no breeches or leggings… underneath. In fact, most peoples of the world began with a simple tunic of some sort and no pants. Pants were never needed until the development of horsemanship in a society. Romans considered pants a low class garment because only the slave class rode horses in their society. Affluent men and women were pulled in chariots and wore tunics or togas. In the Highlands of Scotland, most people could not afford horses as they were uncommon in the region. Those who did ride horses wore pants or tights, but most men never had need for them. For this reason, their dress evolved along different lines than in places like England or the continent, where horsemanship was an integral part of society.. (MORE)
