    I know most would consider it tacky, but for Highland Games here in the US most competitors just wear a Sportkilt. Not traditional by any means but who wants to destroy a $300 custom wool kilt with cabers, sheaf toss and weight over bar? A lot of games here are pretty informal as well and unless youre part of a piping band or dance troupe you can get away with it.

    That said, I would like to eventually get a bonnie prince charlie, custom made kilt and the works for the more formal events.

    In almost all cultures, traditional dress does undergo changes at some point in time.

    Depends on how much you're looking to spend, the usage of your kilt, and etc. I personally have two, one for formal events and the other for informal / festivals. Feel free to send me the details via PM if you'd like. I'm happy to help either way.

    My family comes from the non-kilt wearing part of Scotland for the most part...

    Not one picture of anyone wearing Highland dress going back 200 years, as you would expect, since there were no Highland members...

    And the only actual Tartan items we owned were from a Regimental Tartan...

    Still I found this strangely disturbing:

    I find it odd that there's this 'traditional' Manx dress being pushed that includes a Manx tartan and kilt, despite neither existing in Mann before the 1920s and having absolutely nothing to do with the culture.

    That's also the American who claims to be the King of Mann despite having no decent claim to the title.

    Lets just all declare ourselves King of Mann
    I'm a rover, seldom sober. I'm a rover of high degree. And when I'm drinking I'm always thinking of how to gain my love's company.
