The History of the Kilt stretches back to at least the end of the 16th century....
Unfortunately you choose to read articles on wiki rather than history. First kilts were worn in Scotland and Ireland around 400BC if you go by statues and drawings dated back to then...
...These people are simply believing what they have been told
Hardly misconceptions, the Statue of Galician King.
Kilt, or plaid depending on what historical evidence you choose to follow is far older than a 16th century's modern romance with the highlands. It was firstly used as a blanket that would be tied around the waist. I guess you think folk walked about in adidas tracksuits lol
Geeez, wish some folk would read about history rather than google the crap ;)
The Kilt was dress for the lairds never for the common folk as myth would have you believe.
Can you imagine lairds up in the glens stealing cattle and needing a blanket lol
