Of course.


Some do, some don't.


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 are not supposed to wear underwear I was told.


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.
