] Now, he's of Welsh descent, and I would love for him to wear a kilt for he has lovely legs. He wants to wear a blue color tartan, one like our Nova Scotia tartan. Is there any man in England, who ever would have reason to wear a kilt, and how far of a stretch is it to wear one at a wedding? (during the Regency period)>
Other parts of the UK, maybe, but I doubt if kilts were that trendy in England. They became more acceptable later in the century in England, when Queen Victoria got on the Scottish kick.
I believe some of the Scottish soldiers who fought at Waterloo wore kilts - try an internet search on military costume through the ages.
BTW, I went to a wedding last month where the groom and groomsmen all wore kilts, and the bride and bridesmaids were all in trousers. It looked very good. The only thing I couldn't stand were the bagpipes, which I regard as an atrocious weapon of war which should be banned by the Geneva convention.
