The kilt the integral part of the world renowned Scottish National Dress, but what makes it unique is that even non-Scots have taken to wearing it as formal dress for special occasions.
Hire shops have become very popular Worldwide and reasonable hire charges have made it the only national dress you may see worn in almost any country in the world.
Historically it was not always as popular as it is today. In August 1747, after the defeat of Bonnie Prince Charlie in the 1745 rebellion, the British government banned the wearing of the kilt (and the bagpipes, which were seen as an instrument of war) in an attempt at suppressing highland identity. This law remained in force until 1783. During the ban the only people who were legally allowed to wear the kilt were pipers in the military and then only in their regimental tartan.
