Why don't Scottish men wear panties under the kilts?
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 obtain 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.

Irish men wearing kilts is a recent phenomenon. If you research Irish history, you will find that many Scots as far back as the 16th century cast off their kilts when they came to Ireland. There are woodcuts depicting Scottish Redshanks in Northern Ireland dressed after the Irish fashion, that is,… leine, Ionar, and bare legs. The Irish "kilt" was called a 'Mantle' ... simply a cloak of wool with a fur lining. (not plaid worn about the waist) Kilts were too cumbersome in Irish bogland and thus were often cast aside by Galloglas once in service of Irish Gaelic Lords. (Good Source Material ... Elizabeth's Irish Wars by Cyrill Falls, Tyrone's Rebellion by Hiram Morgan, Irish Battles by G.A. Hayes-McCoy, The Irish Wars by Ian Heath and David Sque, and The Twilight Lords by Richard Berleth) Oftentimes they were made into Truibhas (Trews) or the modernday "trousers'. (Dress in Ireland by MairÃ©ad Dunlevy) The mantle was the mainstay of Irish dress and was used like a blanket at night and functionally cast side when the whether was warm. During the end of Nine Years War between Hugh O'Neill 2nd Earl of Tyrone and Queen Elizabeth I, the English were able to recognize Irish and Old Irish "Galloglas" from the "New Scots" by the fact that the "New Scots" arriving from Scotland, were still kilted. This distinguished them from their counterparts who had been assimilated into Irish society. It wasn't until recently that Irish people actually began to adopt the wearing of kilts. Various claims have been made that a number of Irish tartans were shown in a book called Clans Originaux (1880) but when the list was discovered it was more of a pattern book than a literary one and not one Irish pattern was contained. Nor have any other 19 th century books on tartan. Pictures purportedly showing the Irish wearing tartan kilts have turned out to be mail quilts (protection) or the bottom of the Irish leine. The only actual Irish historical tartan dated to the 17 th century was found in a peat bog in the 1950s in Ulster, the tartan cloth is thought to have been manufactured in Ireland but the actual trews they were made into in Scotland. Given the movement over the sea between the Gaelic cultures of Highlands of Scotland and Ireland historically hardly proof positive that it was Irish tartan. In addition: I lived in Ireland all my life and the first I learned about Irish and kilts was on American TV at a traditional Irish wedding. I have only ever seen Scottish people on stag nights wearing kilts in Ireland. I think some Irish-Americans may have simply gotten confused. The Irish tartans that exist today have nearly all been invented by the Scottish tartan manufacturers in the twentieth century to sell to tourists. They are mostly taken from the colours of the arms of the counties and regions and the colours substituted into Scottish tartans to produce them. The tourist boys produce a database of Irish surnames and link it to the regions which are linked to these spurious tartans, you put your name in and as very few names have a tartan they just pop up one of the invented counties tartan, utter nonsense. The Irish pipe bands today (usually playing a scottish bagpipe) wear a plain saffron kilt, the color just about proveable the garment not. (MORE)
In the 19th century, Sir Walter Scott 're-invented' the kilt in its modern form and from that point on it began to be recognised as our National Dress (dress as in costume, not skirt) worn mostly on ceremonial / formal occasions. Now, more and more, it is worn as a symbol of Scottishness, for instan…ce by fans attending Scotland football / rugby matches. It is not everyday wear for most Scots. The wearing of kilts goes back along time. The Scottish army wore kilts out of mere convience. In battle it is alot easier to relieve yourself if you don't have a whole bunch of buttons and a belt to undo. Its also why traditional kilt wearing does not involve the use of underwear. (MORE)
They are all different patterns. Each different pattern used to represent the different Celtic clans, they still do but they don't tend to mean anything now and there are probably patterns that have nothing to do with any of the original clans.
What the hell is wrong with you? Nothing!. Your penis is an "erogenous zone", which is a fancy way of saying that when it's stimulated, you get turned on. Most of us have lots of erogenous zones -- that's why kissing feels good -- and different kinds of stimulation turn them on. So the simple answe…r is "because it feels good." Don't worry about it.. By the way, whenever someone asks "why", it's a good idea to think about what would change if you knew the answer. (MORE)
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)

No. If you enjoy to, go ahead. You can wear what ever you want. The one key to happiness. Not care what people think of you...
because about 85 percent of women between the ages 14 and 50 wear thongs or g-strings now.
Then save your money so that you can buy some of your own. You have a right to wear the kind of underwear that appeals to you! Besides, it's just cloth. Maybe an understanding sister or cousin will give you a pair until you can buy your own.
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)
It is a personal choice to wear or not to wear panties with pantyhose; However, in reality there is no need for the panty undergarment when wearing pantyhose as it has its own panty already.
Nothing it is a personal choice we make. And noone elses business unles we decide to let them know
Society does not find it normal for men to wear panties. Pantiesare worn by women and men wear briefs or boxers.
i wear panties because i find them a better fit (like anything else you have to get the right size & style for you) more comfortable, wider choice of styles, fabrics, colours etc i have about 350 pairs
Because they are lovely and soft and arouse the genital area. ...Yes, they are lovely and soft and they do arouse! Other reasons, they come in many amazing fabrics, they are very sexy, they make me feel sexy and I have heard other men say the same, they are NOT boring unlike mens underwear! They …just feel good! I think the Question should be... Why wouldn't men wear panties? (MORE)
I think is hot, but maybe it's just me... It reminds me of Rocky Horror Picture Show.\n. \n Answer \n. \nyep.\n. \n. \nI think panties are hot but what do men need bras for? i think that men who wear bras are gay. but then again that might just be my opinion . My husband started wearing panti…es at my suggestion. We really loved the look and feel of the sexy material. Next we started wearing matching nightgowns and I loved sleeping with a silky partner. After a while, I talked him into trying bras and stockings. We were in Victoria's Secret and bought us matching bras, panties, garters and stockings. I love having sex with my husband dressed in silky undies. I think that him wearing barest forms in his bra would be hot as well. I hope to soon get him into dresses, skirts and blouses so that we can go out on a date. (MORE)
of course not...you never wear panties whilst wearing a skirt. Don't tease! It's not funny. I hate it when girls at my school get me all hot and bothered with short skirts just because they can. I can't concentrate on study or sleep at night!
The Highlanders used to wear Kilts during battle. Modern Day soldiers were the army uniform.
I prefer wearing nylon panties then cotton or silk. Lots of guys wear panties, there has always been guys who have enjoyed wearing panties whether it be bikini, thong or g string. More guys are comfortable now a days expressing that they enjoy wearing panties and it's helping those of us who wear… panties to be able to not have to hide it. Fact is that most guys who do wear panties are straight and they wear for the comfort and yes the excitement also. Wearing panties does not make you gay or bisexual. Its just clothing. When you get down to it, it is all the same. Just a piece of cloth sewen together. Here in Brazil, mens underwear is similar to panties for years, european style. No bunching up. It is very common for men to wear panties. Maybe not the pink with ruffles but solid colors without ribbons, common. (MORE)
You'd be hard pressed to find anyone outside a tourist, a New York St Patrick s day parade or a pipe band wearing one (and they wear plain saffron)..

A kilt is the traditional mode of dress for men in Scotland although it is usually only worn on formal occasions nowadays.
I have wore nylon panties for years(when I can) I think its alot more common than people think. If you are talking nylon panty hose, you would be surprised, many. Those that work on their feet all day, it is good for circulation and health. I wear them in winter under business pants, warmer. N…ow if just nylon panties, not so sure what you mean as silky ones, spandex, or what. They feel good and are comfortable. And do what you like, wear them. What I have seen in locker rooms, and others, I would agree to stats, that say about 43% men were panties 24x7 and over 60%Â¨wear them at least one day a week. We are talking panties of all types.

They are traditional Scottish dress. The kilt is a traditional item of clothing worn by members of the Scottish clans, long before modern clothing fashions made pants so widely accepted.
The first written record in Scotland dates from the 16 th century and the first pictorial evidence of what we would recognise as a kilt turned up in the 17 th century (Scottish mercenaries in Germany). There are records before this which are cited as proof of kilts but they turn out to be just des…criptions of bare legged people usually wearing shirt and tunics similar to the Irish Leine which is not a kilt. The first kilts were a belted blanket of cloth, the great kilt, Plaid or Feileadh Mor. The little kilt which is just the lower half is now the norm (Philibeg), the upper half can still be worn in addition. The stitched pleating is a late 18th century invention. Kilts were briefly banned under the act of proscription from 1747-1782 in the Highlands following the battle of Culloden but were still allowed in the Lowlands and by the military. Originally just a Highland dress they became national dress in the 19th century following a revival. Made of tartan (known confusingly as plaid in the US which was the Great kilt itself not the material) which was originally tied into districts not clans and produced locally. The revival changed the use of tartan and tied it into specific clans, a function it never had historically. (MORE)
Hardly anyone wears a kilt for normal daily wear. However, formal wear in Scotland (for weddings etc.) is a kilt and all it's accoutrements.
Is it considered sexually deviant behaviour for men to wearwomens' panties? Yes, Deuteronomy 22:5 according to thislets stone everyone to death including non virgin women. A bitextreme inst it?
Traditionally, panties are generally only worn by women. However,if men choose to wear panties, that is a private decision on theirpart.
Yes, the Indian village girls wear panties under the saree. Thesaree is an Indian tradition wear that is worn by both the men andwomen. No- Men don't wear saree in the name of tradition, only women wearsarees.
Scottish (2 't's). The kilt is mainly worn at weddings and special occasions these days.
Panties provide better support for the nads, preventing injury from the balls getting yanked when jumping or running. Granted a male athletic supporter (jock strap) would do this, but the panties are softer than most mans underwear (especially Barely There, Ambrielle, and Jockey brands and some of t…he Victoria's Secret line). Sometimes the thong rides between my nutsack and my leg, but some thongs are so comfortable I have to be careful that I don't go to the bathroom without remembering to take off the thong panty first. Another thing is it's kinda fun to go out in public and talk and act like a typical straight man when little do the people know that under them man's clothes is a pair of pretty pink panties with lace and bows and the like :). And what a surprise for the women who "sleep" with me. (MORE)

If this skirt is really short, then there is bound to be the possibility of an accidental panty flash, or you may even find yourself in a situation where someone may get a good look up your skirt. So avoid wearing bright colored regular panties which will draw way too much attention. I would su…ggest wearing very minimal pantiesâ¦ Either a tiny string thong (which will make it seem like you're not wearing any panties at all)â¦ Or if you do want to wear panties make sure they are a small bikini cut and very sheer so that your skin tone really shows through them. Hopefully, opaque (and not transparent) ones! (MORE)
some do and some dont..... just ask the on you have in mind to findout
Only if they are into that. While cuckolding is a masochistic emasculation fetish, that doesn't mean that every cuckold is also turned on by crossdressing or petticoat discipline.
They don't for day to day use but the kilt is still worn on formal occasions as it is the national dress of Scotland.
Only if you're a boy. Crossdressers who only wear panties or other lingerie are known as underdressers.
Cause it wouldn't be right!! Men need more space duhh! Just kiidin i really don't know Dx sorry bout' that... good question!
A kilt is part of the national dress of Scotland and bagpipes are mainly associated with Scotland. The traditional dress (not just in Scotland) of anyone playing bagpipes is usually full Highland Dress.
Yes, in the past it was the normal dress of the Scots people but is now usually only worn at formal occasions like weddings etc.
I have always loved the feel and look of womens panties. My girlfiends was going into my dresser when we first started to date and she discovered my collection. At first she thought they were another womens, but immediately told her they were mine. She got so turned on. She intoduced me to crotchles…s panties. We both wear them and have the greatest sex with them on. The silk caresses our bodies as we grab each other. It adds an addtional dimension to the experience. Ladies try them, and get a pair for your man! (MORE)
Scottish kilts come from Scottish Highlands. The first historical records of Scottish kilts are from the 16th century. Since then, kilt was used as a traditional Scottish army uniform.
Absolutely not. You are only gay if you are sexually attracted tomembers of the same gender. "Shemales" are women, and a better termwould be transgender women.
Wearing womens clothing does not make you gay. Wanting to have sex with men and no desire to have sex with women pretty much meets the label requirement though. .
Men wear kilts in Scotland and Ireland. Sean Connery is very famous for wearing kilts on official events and since he has played the role of James Bond several times, thus having maximum mainstream media success, he is often associated with kilts.
A scottish kilt is worn for decorative purposes today however they were used originally as battle dress. Similar in appearance to a skirt, kilts are mainly worn by males. They are still worn today in traditional circumstances such as weddings and other celebrations along with highland dancing.
