Howie Nicholsby’s 21st Century Kilts puts a unique spin on traditional Scottish style.
By using original textiles, ranging from leather to denim, and modern patterns such as camouflage and pinstripe, Nicholsby offers something different for those fond of this age-old item.
“My aim is to give men throughout the world a realistic alternative to trousers,” Nicholsby says about his mission. “21st Century Kilts is true to the original kilt which was everyday clothing. Casual or formal, a kilt should be an option for any man from anywhere who can realize they are part of the history of an international garment.”
