A true Scotsman is said to never wear anything under his kilt. But now Scots are being warned that the sartorial tradition could be both indecent and unhygienic. The organization charged with maintaining standards in Highland dress, the Scottish Tartans Authority, is supporting kilt rental firms that want to banish the age-old custom of “going commando.” On Tuesday, Brian Wilton, a spokesman for the group, said: “We are saying, please use common sense and decency, as it can be unhygienic and it can be offensive. If you are out and about in a kilt, then remember to show some decorum. If you are hiring a kilt, then wear underwear because some of them are left in a horrible state.”
This on the heels of word that the Free Church has voted to allow musical instruments and hymns. Scotland may never be the same.
