The claims that women dig men in kilts is NOT an exaggeration. I've noticed women in public checking me out up and down, female co-workers telling me I "rock the kilt," other random women literally walking up to me just to give their compliments. Some even ask me if I'm in the military, though I'm not sure why the kilt would give them that impression... but hey, I accept all compliments from the ladies, ^_^. I get props from some of the bros too, but so far the gals have given me the most.
Personally, I like the heavier material on the kilt. This one's denim and the weight allows the kilt to stay down when I sit, squat or when it's a bit windy. The material is NOT stiff, as one reviewer claims and doesn't make it difficult to bend at the knees... I don't even know why it would be difficult to "bend at the knees" when there's no fabric obstructing your leg's full range of motion. There's also a hidden pocket at the inside of the apron big enough for a wallet, keys, or even a folding knife. I like the large cargo pockets, though the straps on the right side kinda bugs me a little. Looks cool though, so I basically only use the right cargo pocket to hold my edc knife. The chain on the left side is a nice touch and I like the apron snaps. The drop length is also an inch longer than my other kilts (DKNE's is 24"), which I also like because I prefer my kilt to fall below my knees a bit and I got enough extra length if I decide to wear my kilt even higher.
Before you buy, MEASURE FIRST. I took a tape measure around my waist, about belly button area then chose the size they have within my range (I'm 38.5", so I went with a med/lg for 39-40). Another reviewer claimed there's "no adjustment'... well that's why you wear a belt, duh! It looks best with a belt anyway. I suggest a leather belt or a tactical belt about 1.75" to 2".
How to look manly in your DNKE Smithy utility kilt - Stand with confidence, walk with purpose, be a gentleman especially to the ladies, smile and be polite to everyone... but give the impression you're ready for war at the drop of a hat. Posture is very important - Stand up straight, keep your core tight. Chest out, don't slouch, especially when wearing the kilt.
So yeah, I'm very happy with this purchase. I'll take a picture soon and share it on DNKE's facebook page with a my review. I'm considering the (olive) sport kilt next.
Suggestion to DNKE crew: You MUST add a tactical-kilt in your line-up, maybe in rip-stop material. I WILL BUY IT!
Something I really like about this kilt is the length. I am a fairly lanky guy and 6'0" tall, and I need a longer kilt. I've tried shorter ones and always felt uncomfortable. A 22 inch kilt feels like a damned mini skirt. All the DamnNearKiltEm Kilts are 24 inches long, and that, I've found, is just about the minimum length I can get away with and not feel exposed.
Also the pocket system is great. One on each side with multiple compartments, and one hidden "flask pocket" under the front apron. All you need. The hidden pocket is also nice because if you have something in there that has any weight, like a 200ml bottle of Jonnie Walker for example, it helps keep you modest by weighing down the front apron. It's like wearing a really small sporran but without looking like you're fresh from the highlands. The pocket is pretty small though. If you want to carry a flask there you'll likely have to buy something specific for the purpose.
One thing to note, this kilt seems to be sized to be worn traditionally, higher up and around the belly button. If you wear it around the hips like a pair of pants it can be difficult to walk because your legs are constricted by a tube, the bit where the vertical line of buttons is. I had the same problem with the stowaway model. I got around this by ordering a kilt one size up. The thing would slid right off if I didn't cinch it down with a belt, but once it's on I have great freedom of movement and plenty of extra fabric to remain modest.
Final take: I really like the "indigo" Smithy. If I feel weird wearing it in public it's not because it doesn't match my clothes, or because of its color or fabric, or its length, or its Scottishness, or it's lack of utilitarian pockets. It's because it's a kilt. And that I can get over.
Thank god for Prime (2-day shipping and free returns with something you are not familiar with is a HUGE plus).
UPDATE: Returned the kilt. Mike from DNKE was of awesome help and great customer service. Changed the Smithy for the Highlander... see my comment/picture there
