I do think he needs to shave his chest to be convincing.....

You're probably correct. I never saw Edith Piaf's chest. ...  ;D

I'll volunteer to do the shaving for him. ...  8)

Is that really a dress? I know nothing about its construction, but to me it looks like a coat of some kind worn over trousers.

Yeah I'd agree from my visit to India. Not a dress...

^Yeah, I was thinking that the recent episode of Glee was relevant here! :)

 Yes, I've always understood that a kilt isn't supposed to be called a "skirt."  But, to me, it's a matter of semantics... because, in its physical aspects, clearly a kilt *is* a skirt.  The word "skirt" can clearly be provocative.


I would defer to Kelda, our native expert on all things Scottish, however, Wiki does distinguish between the kilt and the full length garment known as the 'great kilt' which has the over-shoulder portion.  The kilt part IS essentially - a skirt.

Yes Scots would never call a kilt a skirt although for description purposes thats essentially what it is. A kilt is a mnaly thing.. skirt is essentially a feminine expression.

My thinking, too. Some fine, manly looking men.  :)
