My two cents worth on this subject....

Back in the 70's, my mother made 2 kilts out of Black Watch polyester
material so that my other brothers could compete in athletic events at games
without distroying their good wool kilt. It was light-weight, breathed fine
(then again if you are running a kilted mile there is enough air passing
through there as is) and disposible (although they are still in good
condition some 25 years later.)

The drawback was that it didn't hold the pleat, wrinkled like a cheap suit,
and it looked like a cheap suit. As a southerner, where the heat can be
enduring, I don't feel that wool kilt makes that much of an issue. Ask me
about the wool hose, and I will say that I have always empathised with women
and their issue with hose.

I'll get down from the podium now.....
