  • Description

    WHEN PEOPLE THINK OF SCOTLAND, THEY TEND TO THINK OF TWO THINGS: WHISKY AND KILTS. WHISKY HAS LONG BEEN SCOTLAND'S MOST FAMOUS EXPORT, BUT NOW KILTS ARE BREAKING INTO THE EXPORT MARKET IN A BIG WAY. UP TILL NOW KILTS HAVE BEEN EXPORTED IN A CONSTANT STREAM TO EXILED SCOTS IN A HUNDRED COUNTRIES. BUT THESE EXPORTS HAVE BEEN FOR INDIVIDUAL TARTANS, MADE TO MEASURE, AND VERY EXPENSIVE. NOW BULK ORDERS FOR THOUSANDS ARE BEING RECEIVED FROM EUROPE AND MASS PRODUCTION IS THE ORDER OF THE DAY.
    MANY SCOTS WILL REACH FOR THEIR WHISKY WHEN THEY REALISE THAT HIS SUDDEN WORLD ACCLAMATION OF THE KILT IS DUE LARGELY TO THE INFLUENCE OF THE MINI-SKIRT. AND BUILD ORDERS FOR MINI-KILTS ARE FLOWING INTO SCOTLAND'S FACTORIES. THE FACTORY IN THIS FILM HAS JUST RECEIVED AN ORDER FOR 41,000 MINI-KILTS FROM SPAIN -- WORTH GBP82,000. THIS ORDER FOLLOWS AN ORDER FROM FRANCE FOR 30,000 MINI-KILTS.
    PARADOXICALLY THE MINI-KILT DEFEATS ALL THE MANY PRACTICABLE ADVANTAGES OF WEARING A PROPER KILT. THE HEAVY MATERIAL AND CLOSE PLEATING OF AN ORDINARY KILT MEANS THAT IT ALWAYS HANGS FIRMLY DOWN OVER THE KNEES GIVING WARMTH, PROTECTION, AND FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT. THE MINI-KILT WOULD APPEAR TO OFFER NONE OF THESE ADVANTAGES, BUT IT REMAINS A HOST ATTRACTIVE EYE-CATCHING SKIRT.
