Not wearing anything special now, but got my kilt yesterday. Here's the first pic of it on!



Gonna try and put it on more proper later today, i wear an actually proper shirt instead of my work shirt, and take some more pics of it with better lighting.
Dashing! I really dig the color choice!

Looking good, Emher! I love kilts.

Do you realize that now I'm bound to share my kilt picture too, right?
We're waiting.

Ew?

For me today, tweedy black trousers and a tweedy grey vest over a black lacy tank top. Black and tan shoes. Didn't have time to snap a pic this morning, but I will if I'm not too grumpy when I get home.

I am also wearing a new medic alert bracelet. I admit that passive stubbornness has kept me from wearing one for the past several years. I always felt they were cramping my style, they're kind of ugly, and always much too big. Just annoying overall. Recently, though, I've been experiencing more wobbliness and faint when my blood sugar drops -- and if I do pass out it's really only a matter of minutes, maybe a half hour till I'm dead. I figured I should suck it up and be mature and start wearing one again. I splurged on the sterling silver and custom chain, which helps because it's not as ugly and it actually fits my tiny wrist. I was pleasantly surprised at how many styles they offer these days!

^ Sorry you need it, but that does look very nice for a medical alert bracelet. Congrats on your new-found maturity!

Re: What Are You Wearing?

I agree, it's quite pretty!

Jewellery is not really my thing, even tho it's not uncommon in Italy for men to wear a ring or a gold chain necklace. I have a couple that I got as gifts when I was a boy, but I never actually wore them. I used to wear a leather cord necklace when I was younger (mostly in summer), but these days I don't really care about it.

Showing off my legs, what else!

I have been told it's too short, so I probably need to wear it lower. But I'm just the kind of guy that could wear a mini-kilt. Dekerd notoriously called me a tart for that. I cannot really argue with it.

Re: What Are You Wearing?

Today it is raining, so it's a raincoat-over-hoodie day. Plus a rain hat I picked up from the north of England a few years ago.

I could do with a second hoodie. It can't be healthy, wearing the same one all the time.

Yay, the famous kilt! Awesome stuff.

I don't think that's too short at all, although with the impressively sized sporran I can see why people might suggest it's a little short. From my experience, the best guide for kilt length is that you should be able to flash a bit of kneecap while walking. The jacket and dark kneesocks combo goes brilliantly with the rest of the gear - I can imagine you striding down the streets of Aberdeen in all of that. If you can get hold of a skean dhu tucked underneath one of the stockings, that'll complete the awesomeness.

I'm not big into jewelry either, and I have very little and wear even less. The ring in that picture is a pearl set in silver that my mother gave me, and I have a sapphire in silver that my dad gave me. I swap those out. I have a silver key I've worn around my neck for about 12 years, and I hardly ever wear other necklaces. I go through phases with earrings (I do have some amazing earrings, though: silver TARDISes, silver fibonacci spirals, Scrabble tile WTF/OMG earrings, etc). I just find too much jewelry feels in the way.

On men I don't really find too much jewelry attractive. I do like a piece or two here and there: I like rings -- simple, thick bands, not bling. I like a nice watch. Maybe an earring on the right guy. Maybe a bracelet on the right guy.

Thanks! I did look for a while on the site I ordered from before settling on the Douglas tartan. It really is perfectly in my color set. Can't say the same about my work shirt. I am going to get better pics of the kilt and it on me, it's just that I've been home sick for two days and have looked like shit.

Great looking bracelet!

And iguana, looking good! I was to get a sporran as well but messed up. Will see if I have room to order it on my next salary.

Stupidly I left my snug grey oversized Faroese jumper somewhere (but I don't know where), so tonight I'm cold.
