Utilikilts in NOLA

I spent the past weekend in New Orleans with my fiance. The combination of heat and humidity was almost unbearable. During the days I wore my blue, original skirt-style Utilikilt (about which I have previously written) and in the evening my tan Utilikilt Mocker (about which I have also written). Again, the public reaction was typical of what I have been used to:
a. Mainly, no reaction whatsoever;
b. A few compliments (e.g., "I like your kilt!")
c. Occasional Scottish related questions (e.g., "Are you from Scotland?" No. I'm from Philadelphia. "Do you have Scottish heritage?" Yes (as if that should matter).
In addition, I overheard one sweltering man remark, "I should get one of those." If only he truly understood how right he was. I was probably the most comfortable man in the city. I will never again walk around in a climate such as this with inseams encroaching on my crotch.
Most of the women were wearing skimpy sundresses. The men, on the other hand, were confining the area that - especially on males - need ventilation the most. Wearing trousers in such weather is insane!
