Imitation Skilts

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

They say that imitation is a form of flattery, well, I’m flattered.  Many thanks to Bruce for bringing these jokers (are there more??) to my attention.

I’m offended by the punctuation in Kiltailor‘s “Utility Kilt For Active Men’s”.

I notice that Royal Kilt likes the denim design so much they list it twice: an ordinary one cut out in photoshop and a “stylish” version (presumably due to the presence of my legs).

Euro Kilt‘s Union Flag “Sublimation” kilt is a bit of a mystery.  According to Freud sublimation is the process of transforming libido into “socially useful” achievements, including artistic, cultural and intellectual pursuits.  I can only assume they don’t have much libido to transform if their socially useful pursuits involve ripping off other designers.  Can someone please order one so we can see what a dog’s breakfast they make of it?

Noel is “always a Fusilier” his Royal Regiment of Fusiliers Skilt

20161231_205416

The Royal Fusiliers were originally formed from two companies of the Tower of London guard, and called the Ordnance Regiment. Most regiments were equipped with matchlock muskets at the time, but the Ordnance Regiment were armed with flintlock fusils. This was because their task was to be an escort for the artillery, for which matchlocks would have carried the risk of igniting the open-topped barrels of gunpowder.

Drop us a line if you would like us to make a Skilt in your regiment’s colours.
