I found full formal kilt/accessories are rented out by an outfit in Utah for $165.00. This does not include the socks or hat. For $2.00 extra, a real dirk vs. a fake dirk is provided.

All in all, there is sufficient storage space provided for a significant EDC to be carried, including the dirk.

There is a wedding that I'll be attending in April, I'll let y'all know if the Groom, myself, and a nephew wear the appropriate colored kilts and if so, how it turns out in regard to the EDC.

Yes, I wear a kilt in the historically correct fashion!

Then you might want to EDC a wool sock in case it is cold that day. grin

If it is for a wedding, I recommend an Ultralight .3 and a pair of EMT shears. With the shears, wipes, 2" gauze, band-aids, antibiotic ointment and a 1/2" roll of tape, I was able to deal with two scraped knees. I used one of the safety pins to deal with a wardrobe malfunction and the ibuprofen for when the maid of honor had a headache. It was a memorable event.

Umm, what sort of wedding results in multiple scraped knees? On second thought, don't answer. This is a family-friendly forum.

What I'm wondering, is how did a thread that has been dead for 11-1/2 years get resurrected? How does one even search out a thread that old to reply to it? Holy Necropost, Batman! Inquiring minds want to know!

It is good that old questions are researched before asking them again. It is good that the old threads are still accessible. It is good that people are interested.

Many times I have seen questions or subjects get repeated without looking at what has been discussed before.

There is no rule against thread necromancy.

In some cases resurrecting old threads is done by spammers. Clearly, that's not what's going on here.

The answer is G Rated. It involves a crack in a concrete sidewalk and a person running. If you are sure you don't want me to answer, I won't.
