Shiny...

My leather Utilikilt comes in on March 15.

I'm having a weird little problem with this. The leather UK' is sized at the even numbers--size 36, 38, 34. It's also really expensive. As it happens--and bear in mind, this is abnormal in a male of my age--my waistline is shrinking. Now, each leather kilt has drawstrings up the side...mmm...that give it about two inches of play. So there's a safe aura of 2 sizes.

But I was a size 35 when I measured, and they STRONGLY recommended that I go with a 36, of the two options. So, I did. That means I can get down to a size 34 and still have it sitting snugly above my hips.

I may end up with a very low waistline at the end of all this, if I continue to shrink. *grumble* maybe they'll let me return/resize, since it was their advice.

I was wearing a medium shirt for the first time in a long time yesterday :) I did have to hold in my midrift a bit, but I do that anyhow. Yay, I feel a bit less like middle-age is encroaching :)

On the upside if for any reason the utilikilt no longer fits there has always been a hot market for them on ebay. You might not get the whole value back, but at least 75%-90%.

Enjoy!

That's a good point! I'll ask UK for a return/resize first, but that might be a viable option if things go bad.

Now there's something new to worry about going to your place... your Utilikilt slipping and inadvertantly treating us to a view of what that girl at Renn Faire found under your kilt. :)

Plaid boxers? :) I've learned a few things about layered undergarments...

Yup. A real Scotsman wears MORE plaid under their plaid. ;)

*nod* and an occasional anachronist wears even more, because SCA members are grabby.
