With tartan all the rage on the international catwalks this season, it does not seem such a big stretch of the imagination for the kilt to make its way to the pages of the fashion magazines. If it were up to Howie Nicholsby the kilt would make its comeback as daily wear. Nicholsby, scion of a Scottish family of kilt makers, has already dressed celebrities like Madonna, Robbie Williams and Vin Diesel in kilts that range from the traditional tartan to versions in leather and denim. His kilts are even worn as club wear in Edinburgh ‘s hottest night clubs.
Nicholsby admits to wearing kilts every day and has big plans to roll out his designs, under the name 21 st Century Kilts , in major cities across the globe. His father, a traditionalist who runs the family business, Geoffrey (Tailor), may have had reservations about Nicholsby’s dreams, but the proof is in the pudding. Celebrities love his designs, for which he commands between £275 for a black wool kilt and £1250 for a leather version. “My aim is to give men around the world a realistic alternative to trousers,” he says. “It is not my aim to make all customers kilt addicts, although perhaps I should warn you – kilts are very comfortable.”
