As someone who was in Scotland just last summer, I can attest to the shocking dearth of kilt-wearers within the Jewish community (in Glasgow, at least).

But then again, that's not so surprising: do you know how much a kilt costs?!

A properly fitted kilt just comes to the middle of the kneecap, though modern style is to wear it slightly shorter

Well, if you are going to define "properly" using the secular standards then I gues we have nothing to talk about!



Yes, they are! http://www.jewishtartan.com/jewisht...

Lord George Gordon died childless in prison for rabble-rousing. We're hoping he really escaped to Eastern Europe secretly and fathered a dozen children, but...

Another possible Scottish connection is that Peter the Great brought Gordons back to Russia to teach his generals to fight. Possibly one converted?

The most likely answer is that it's a distortion of a name of a Russian town.

A properly fitted kilt just comes to the middle of the kneecap, though modern style is to wear it slightly shorter. Or are Jewish kilt-wearers going to copy bais yaakov maidels and wear it to the ground?

Of course my dear, we have full tights over our feet.... Not even an inch of leg showing.... (blech) LOL

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!
MAZAL TOV!

Seriously, I always wondered if there was a Jewish Tartan. It'll look good with my bagpipes! And I can wear it to Whiskeyfest.

But I'm curious if these two sites have anything to do with eachother:
http://jewishtartan.org/
http://www.jewishtartan.com/index.htm

Because if they don't, then before you know it we'll have 2 Jewish Tartans! I guess one will be the Frummer one and one will be the less Frum one.

And there is already one Tartan associated with the Jewish people. The Clan Gordon tartan(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clan_Gordon) is associated with Jews from this guy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lord_George_Gordon

Heaven Forefend!

What kind of Kilts do you take these for?
I don't know what they wear where you come from but of course it goes without saying that there will be no knees showing...hairy or otherwise!

No pictures? Disappointing. But there's usually black as a background filler color.


Yet somehow... I just can't visualize the heimish crowd proudly baring their hairy knees no matter what the color scheme. There's nae a gallus man among them - at least in the wardrobe department.
