If you have any 'common sense and decency,' that is

(Newser) – The Scottish Tartans Authority is committed to upholding the country's traditions—but even so, it says the time has come for one particularly "unhygienic" tradition to die. "The idea that you are not a real Scot unless you are bare under your kilt should be thrown into the same wastepaper basket as the idea that you're not a real Scot unless you put salt on your porridge," the director tells the Telegraph, adding that it's "common sense" to don underpants beneath the traditional garb. "We have heard quite a few hygiene horror stories."

Even so, dedicated kilt wearers don't all agree: "To say it is unhygienic is wrong," says one kilt maker. "The freedom of movement is healthy. We always tell customers to wear nothing under the kilt if everything is in good working order." (Click here to find out why some think you should wear a kilt—sans underwear—on Wednesday.)

You better be wearing underwear beneath that...   (Getty Images)
