The Kingdom of Scotland emerged as an independent sovereign state in the European Early Middle Ages and continued to exist until 1707. By inheritance in 1603, James VI of Scotland became king of England and Ireland, thus forming a personal union of the three kingdoms political union with the Kingdom of England on 1 May 1707 to create the new Kingdom of Great Britain. The union also created a new Parliament of Great Britain,

The True Scotsman With A Kilt Without Undergarments
New figures suggest more kilts, loved by the Royal family

kilt [kɪlt]

  1. a garment resembling a knee-length skirt of pleated tartan cloth,
    traditionally worn by men as part of Scottish Highland dress
    and now also worn by women and girls.*
    pleated [plíːtid] 름이 붙어 있는
    타튼천으로 만든, 주름이 붙은 무릎길이의 스커트 유사한 의상.
    전통적으로 스코틀랜드 하이랜드 의상의 하나로 남자용이나 오늘날은 여성과 소녀들도 입는다.
    "kilted skirts"

Kilts have also been adopted as female wear for some sports.

Today most Scottish people regard kilts as formal dress or national dress.

킬트는 몇가지 경기의 여성복으로 채택되었고오늘날 대부분 스코틀랜드 사람들은 공식 의상 또는 민족 의상으로 여긴다.


Certain regiments/units of the British Army and armies of other Commonwealth nations

(including Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa) with a Scottish lineage or heritage

still continue to wear kilts as part of dress or duty uniform, though they have not been used in combat since 1940


스코틀랜드계나 그 유산을 가진 특정 브리튼군의 연대와 오스트랠리아,캐나다,뉴질랜드,남 아프리카를 포함한 콤먼웰스 국가들의 군대들은 여전히 킬트를 의상으로 또는 근무복으로 계속 착용한다. 1940년이후 전투에서는 착용하지 않지만...



True Scotsman is a humorous term used in Scotland for a man wearing a kilt without undergarments.

Though the tradition originated in the military, it has entered Scottish lore as a rite, an expression‎ of light-hearted curiosity about the custom,and even as a subversive gesture. (subscription required)

*lore [lɔːr] 지식, 교훈, 민간 전승 *rite [rait] 의식, 엄숙하게 올리는 의식, 의식 절차

*subversive [səbvə́ːrsiv] 전복시키는(顚覆的) , 파괴하는, 파괴적인


"진짜 스코트 남자"는 속옷 없이 킬트를 입는 남자라는 스코틀랜드의 익살스러운 말이 있다.

그 전통은 군에서 기인하였지만 의식으로서, 풍속에 대한 가벼운 호기심의 표현으로서,파격적인(전복적인) 제스추어로서 스코트랜드 민간 전승으로 유입되다.


However, in 2010, the Director of the Scottish Tartans Authority, Brian Wilton, described the tradition of not wearing undergarments as "childish and unhygienic".

2010년, 스코티시 타튼 당국의 책임자, 브라이언 윌튼은 내의를 입지 않는 전통이란 유치하고 비위생적인 것으로 묘사하였다.


In response, racing driver David Coulthard and some kilt manufacturers spoke in favour of the tradition, while MSP Jamie McGrigor and Wimbledon champion Andy Murray admitted to wearing underwear under their kilts.

그에 반응하여 카트 경주 선수 대이비드 쿨사드와 얼마간의 킬트 생산자들은 전통에 대하여 호의적으로 말하였고

반면 MSP 재미 맥그리거와 윔블돈 챔피언 앤디 머뤼는 킬트에 내의를 입는 것을 수용하였다.

Tartan Army

As you have known,

The Tartan Army is a name given to "Fans of the Scotland national football team"



Three scotswomen are walking home at night (they are neighbours) and find a scotsman passed out partially under a wagon. * pass out 죽다 , 내놓다, 기절하다

이웃들인 세사람의 스콭츠 부인이 밤에 집으로 가고 있었는데 마차아래에는 의식을 잃고 반죽은 스콭츠 남정네가 있었다.

His upper body is under the wagon and they can't see who he is; however, they would like to help him get home.

그의 상체는 사륜마차 밑에 있어서 누구인지 볼 수가 없었지만 그들은 그 남자를 집으로 갈 수 있게 돕기로 하였다.


The first woman looks under his kilt and says, "It's not my husband".
