KILT VS TROUSERS – A LONG BATTLE

Are you confused about what you should wear at the next Scottish event you attend? Well, you are at the right place. Here, you will find everything that you need to know before the event regarding kilts for men and trousers. Many Scottish men point out that real men should put on kilts, but younger generations may be more flexible in their wardrobe choices. For example, Jaden Smith is known to rock a kilt on occasion. Of course, the choice differs from person to person–not all of us like the same food, do we? No! Similarly, some may like the kilt and others prefer trousers. Let’s discuss the pros and cons of each, so that you can decide which is most appropriate to wear for your upcoming event.

Men’s Kilts

A kilt is among the earliest and most popular types of Scottish apparel. Men, and even kings, have worn kilts since hundreds of years ago; and they are still a popular part of Scottish culture today. Many men and women–even those who are not located in Scotland–wear kilts as they are a comfortable and versatile part of their wardrobe. So, let’s see exactly why they love wearing kilts so much.

Trousers/Pants

Everyone prefers wearing pants–until the first time they try wearing a kilt for a day. Pants are everywhere in modern fashion, because according to the modern generation, kilts are considered very girlish. We have simply accepted trousers, but the following discussion is going to make pant-wearers reconsider their thoughts.

Comparing Kilts & Trousers

1- Comfort

No matter if you’re wearing a traditional Scottish kilt or a modern utility kilt, it will make you feel pleasantly surprised by its comfortability. In comparison, trousers make you feel bunched up  and limit your movements. Compared to the limited movements trousers allow, your legs get complete freedom to move in kilts.

2- Keeps You Cool in Summer

Kilts keep you cool when the weather is hot, but you may not realize this until you compare wearing both kilts and trousers in the hot climate. You’ll feel your legs drenched in sweat in trousers, whereas kilts keep you unbelievably cool, if you choose the fabric accordingly. When it comes to choosing the most breathable and summer-friendly kilt fabric, you should avoid heavy wool that’s used for traditional Scottish or Irish kilts. Instead, try a sport utility kilt made from a lightweight cotton blend for the most breathable feel.

3. Time Limitation

You can’t wear the same pair of trousers you run errands in to go to a formal event, can you? No! Unlike trousers, there’s no such limitation with the kilts. You can wear kilts anywhere and anytime, as long as you pair it with the appropriate accessories and shoes.

4. In Terms of Health

According to the Scottish Medical Journal, men who wear kilts regularly show better sperm quality and fertility when they plan to have a child. Although there’s not a lot of research-based scientific evidence on the topic, it can be something to be considered.

5. Makes You Feel Good About Yourself

Surprisingly, men’s kilts can have positive effects on men’s mental health, making them feel an improved sense of masculinity and pride. According to the Scottish Medical Journal, psychological benefits like these can help men feel more confident. Kilts give men the confidence they need to achieve their personal, as well as relationship, goals. Kilts may help men grow as a person. If you’re suffering from a lack of confidence, I’d suggest you try wearing a kilt–you may be surprised by the positive changes.

Benefits of the Kilt

●      Adjustable fit: kilts allow you to adjust their size according to natural body changes and/or preferred comfortability.

●      No bunching & bending: No more bunching and bending in clothing material will allow you to feel relaxed and free.

●      Keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter: Kilts can keep you cool in summer and maintain your body heat in winter, depending on the fabric. Especially in the summers, kilts can help make a hot summer’s day even more fun. Kilts are a perfect choice for any weather.

●      Health: The design of kilts provide the most breathable option for an outfit. The ventilation helps keep your private parts’ temperature regulated, which can lead to higher sperm counts and higher fertility. A kilt also looks attractive­­, which will keep your partners’ attention on you and, in turn, helps maintaining your relationship goals.

Benefits of Wearing Trousers

●      Trousers are appropriate in all situations. We cannot deny the fact that kilts can be inappropriate to wear in some specific places (usually due to religious or cultural differences,) so trousers come to the rescue.

●      Freedom of movement: Just in case you have to stand on your head, there is no risk of indecent exposure with your trousers, unlike kilts.

●      Keep your calves warm: Long pants cover your calves. We can’t deny the fact that trousers beat out kilts when it comes to keeping your calves warm.

●      Health: An advantage of trouser is that long pants can keep your legs safe from harmful UV rays.

Conclusion

No one can tell whether kilts or trousers are better, as it differs from person to person. In my opinion, it shouldn’t matter which you choose, but you should consider trying on both garments. If you haven’t at least tried a kilt before, you should give it a shot. Once you do, it is likely that you may never want to turn back. In the end, whichever makes you feel more comfortable, confident, and happy is what you should wear.

In the 60th year of the Jaguar E-Type, The Outlierman – makers of handcrafted luxury driving accessories – has unveiled its full collection of Jaguar E-Type-inspired products.

The celebration of a legend

Launched in 1961 at the Geneva Motor Show, the E-Type’s arrival marked a turning point in automotive design – the coupe’s long flowing bonnet, gorgeous proportions, and powerful engine made it a game-changer. Dubbed “the most beautiful car ever made” by Enzo Ferrari, the Jaguar E-Type is a symbol of iconic British automotive design and has one of the world’s most recognizable silhouettes.

Using only the very best materials, The Outlierman has revealed its full collection of products inspired by the Jaguar E-Type, all entirely handmade in Italy by elite artisans in celebration of the British car. Included in the collection are t-shirts, scarfs, ties and pocket squares from The Outlierman’s World Beater and E-Type’s Portrait collections.

Andrea Mazzuca, founder of The Outlierman, said: “The Jaguar E-Type is one of my most favorite cars – the elegance, style and panache are all unrivalled. It’s a car I’ve loved ever since I was a child, so naturally, to celebrate the 60th anniversary I knew The Outlierman had to pay tribute in the only way we knew best – by producing the E-Type’s very own collection. Each item is lovingly handmade by our skilled and dedicated craftspeople, ensuring each product is of the highest quality.

“Alongside our beautifully crafted products, we have two Jaguar E-Types featured in our prestigious Rent & Drive service. It’s a vehicle loved by so many car enthusiasts all over the world and we are proud to feature it on many of our products.”

Highlights of the collection

Some of the best E-Type-inspired items from The Outlierman include:

E-Type’s Portrait – T-shirt with silk application – Limited Edition

Limited to just 50 examples, every piece features an authentic automotive art portrait created by The Outlierman’s talented design team, characterized by vivid brushstrokes and enriched by title and signature, for an even more exclusive result. Printed on a 100% silk satin patch that becomes the protagonist of a garment, with an elegant fit and versatile design, this t-shirt is suitable for free time as well as being worn under a jacket for an original and distinctive, smart, casual outfit.

E-Type’s Portrait – Silk Scarf

The Jaguar E-Type: a car that has left a permanent mark on history, here portrayed as oil on canvas for a luxury and timeless silk scarf handmade in Italy like a piece of art. The hand rolled edges make the finishing of this silk scarf have additional high-quality detail.

World Beater – Silk Pocket Square – Yellow

Jaguar E-Type: The world-beater of its era marks this pocket square handmade in Italy with the perfect fit of its roundness. Like the E-Type’s Portrait silk scarf, the hand rolled edges further enhance the finishing of this pocket square.

World Beater – Silk Tie – Bordeaux

Authenticity is a route that only few have the courage to take, going beyond the ordinary. And the direction of this tie, handmade in Italy, could not be anything but against the tide.

The Outlierman company was formed with a mission to handcraft a range of accessories inspired by the breath-taking beauty, supreme quality and timeless appeal of the world’s most iconic cars.

Puma and Kidsuper Studios collab for use by 360 Magazine

PUMA x KidSuper Studios

PUMA and creative artist collective KidSuper Studios are back for another football-inspired, co-branded collection, which is infused with boundless imagination and continues to explore KidSuper’s artistic and experimental way of thinking.

The PUMA x KidSuper Studios collab boasts mix-and-match design elements and fun prints, and challenges the conventional look of a sneaker. Hook and loop closures, decorative zig-zag stitching, and embroidered branding are complemented by raw edges for a purposefully unfinished look. Inspired by founder and designer Colm Dillane’s unbridled love of football, the campaign images were shot with his favorite team­–recent Copa Libertadores champions–Brazil’s Palmeiras. PUMA sponsored athletes Willian, Gabriel Veron, Weverton and Renan serve as the models for the collection.

Classic PUMA footwear styles are practically unrecognizable with the transformations in this collection. The RS-2K Slip-on is the standout piece, featuring the same camo inspired face print as the fleece top and pants, with a quilted upper. The Mirage Mox and Trailfox Boot get colorful transformations and feature unique aspects like stitched leather pieces on the collar to hold a pencil on the Trailfox, and tie dye laces on the Mirage Mox. The Ralph Sampson 70 offers a more subtle option, with a white leather upper and semi-translucent rubber overlay on the heel, KidSuper Studios embroidery on hook and loop straps, and an exposed foam edge on the formstrip and tongue.

Outfit yourself in a work of art when the PUMA x KidSuper collection drops on PUMA’s website, the PUMA NYC Flagship store and select retailers on March 20. Prices range from $60­­ to $160 for collection items.
