Really, making things cheaply:
Given that a kilt usually costs upwards of £375, I know what you\’re thinking: Scots love a bargain – or at least words to that effect – so they must be delighted at such a good deal. Well, yes and no. As prudent as Scots are – and I proudly count myself among them – after a day of wearing the £25 kilt, I\’m left wondering: is nothing sacred? I ask, not because of the inevitable chaffing that comes from wearing a kilt around the office, or the funny looks I got going to the canteen, or even because of the difficulties I encountered going to the loo, but because it\’s so cheap.
How dare they make things that the hoi polloi can afford? Next thing you know the proles will have enough to eat!
