Here s a good one of Patrick

Mel GibsonThe very first Kilts originated from across the end of 16th Century. These ‘Great Kilts’, while they had been understood, can be distinct from the present day Kilts which can be preferred these days. The original Kilts had been used as Belted Plaids, one huge little bit of material that was wrapped around the waist and belted like a contemporary kilt, with the rest of this material cast throughout the shoulder and connected on the front side. Top of the one half could possibly be utilized as a cloak, to cover your head throughout the rainfall, collected to hold across the waistline if not needed and also used as a blanket when camping.

An iconic user of Great Kilt had been Mel Gibson as William Wallace within the movie ‘Braveheart’, though Wallace most likely never wore an excellent Kilt himself.

an information from the 1800′s informs how the Kilt:

‘…is certainly really loose, and fits guys inured to it to go through great fatigues, to produce very quick marches, to keep aside against the inclemency of weather condition, to wade through streams, and housing in huts, forests, and rocks upon celebration; which men wearing the low nation garb cannot perhaps endure.’

Note the Tartan Pattern from the Kilt German printing of Highlanders from 1630
