Kilts are a fashion statement but are probably impractical. Women have taken to slacks probably for this reason. A more interesting question is when will men carry purses? Some time ago, there was a “male bag” movement that went nowhere. I carry a purse (my satchel) which I purchased in Europe (where these are more common). I do so because I often need to carry a cell phone, sunglasses, a PDA, house keys, a wallet, a large remote entry key fob for my car, office keys, a note pad and a pill case for some medication I need to have nearby. Pockets really can’t handle this and a knapsack or briefcase are often too much.
By the way, my daughter played field hockey in high school. Two guys from another school wanted to play this traditional girls’ sport and, given the state of our laws, were allowed to if they wore the regular uniform, a short skirt. They did so.
