Glenfiddich Presents Dressed To Kilt - Fashion Show

“Yo, yo, where my Scots at? Peeblesshire HOLLABACK!!!”

Thus it was with an audible gasp and a clutch at my heart (normally I prefer a shoulder bag) that I realized my invitation to the Glenfiddich-sponsored “Dressed to Kilt” event had somehow been lost in the mail.

The King of Scotland, Sean Connery, was there and I reminded him that the last time I had seen him, in Edinburgh last summer at a dinner thrown by Alex Salmond, the First Minister of Scotland, he had said he would never vote Labour as long as he had a hole in his arse!! Yes, he totally did. I love Sean, and I love that he has lines like that up his sleeve.

Matthew Modine knows there are some things one cannot do in a kilt. For these activities, God has invented knickerbockers. You might just be surprised at what is possible in a kilt.
