More than just a beautiful kilt

by John Hawley September 08, 2016

Don’t box me in. I’m Kiltman, I make and sell kilts and pockets, it's true; but I’m also a man, with other interests. All sorts of things captivate me day by day. But yeah it’s true, my kilts have a box pleat. It’s the look I prefer. So that’s a kind of boxing in.

And so yeah, I’m Kiltman, it’s what I do, the kilt thing. But why should you be surprised if I savor a piece of poetry or speculate about an aspect of 3D printing, or, I don’t know, breed border collies or something?

The kiltmen out there are not defined by the kilt, it it one among an array of passions. Or it’s just a particular article of clothing, with its particular benefits and uses. I am Kiltman, but even I don’t want to get hung up about the oddity of the kilt. Wear it or don’t, and move on.
