    Nope, it’s a school uniform, a lot of the British schools seem to have these funny skirts for pupils to wear. And if you think that’s bad, you should see what the -girls- have to wear

    No…Im Scottish. Its a Scottish kilt missing the Sporran and a Gillie Shirt.

    You do get some Schools making pupils wearing tartan skirts but not with Gillie shirts. That would just be ridiculous (although seriously funny)

    If you look next to the kilt it looks like one of those evening function wear shops.

    @ GrgxGuru — me 2. i wish i was drunk in an English pub right now at 11:15am.

    @Chris — those skirts are uber chill.

    @Darren — it’s really what’s under the skirt that matters.

    @Chris — okok Gillie Weed may help you with swimming underwater, but facing evil will take a lot more than a Sporran.

    @Entropy — fanks.
