True Scotsman” is a term used in Scotland for a man wearing a kilt without undergarments. Though the tradition originated in the military, it has entered Scottish lore as a rite, an expression of light-hearted curiosity about the custom, and even as a subversive gesture.

  1. Golly. The essence of a true Scotsman is to keep the boys airey and breezy below the fèileadh beag, or the “little kilt”, as it’s known to the Sassanach. We’re hard men north of the border with rough worsted wool scratching our Ben Nevis, our purple headed mountain up amongst the Heather in the Hills o’ Benanchie is just one of the many tactile pleasures of going out on the town dressed like a man. But the best part is that it’s become traditional for many lads and lassies to take it upon themselves to check if it’s true. So no matter if you’re into a Gay Gordon’s or a Strip the Willow, your 8ths and Reel is off to a good start. No need to toss your own Caber. You’ll always have a Cock o’ the North to slap your Jock all the way to Cumlodden.
