Any men still wear the canvas utility kilts? Or were these a fad that died?

I was unaware kilts were ever a fad. I vaguely remember a few punk rockers in the 80s and 90s wearing them.

^^^^^ I was one of them . I mean, I didn't carry tools around with it or anything lol

Is a utility kilt different then a regular kilt? We're not talking about a tool belt here, are we?

I see a few people wearing them every day on the bus to Seattle, or around the waterfront.

One company that makes them is here and they are doing well, so someone must be buying them.

Thanks for the link, Hemlock140. I just wore a traditional kilt, but I would totally work in a utility kilt!
That thing is bad ass!
