Changing Kilt

A friend and mountain bike riding buddy who is also a first-rate seamstress made me a sweet changing skirt/kilt/wrap (if you can think of a great name, email me). It's got velcro and a soft lining and lets you strip off your bike shorts behind your truck after a ride or race with a little dignity:
Check out the sweet bicycle embroidery around the pocket (good place to stuff the things that just came out of your jersey pocket).

I promise to get some better pics as the season goes on. I just feel a little self concious about photographing myself in a public parking lot while changing. Maybe I'll need to stage a photo shoot.

Anyone else want one of these?

Been wearing a Utilikilt to races for years; the pleats are a good idea as it gives you much more wiggle room

First I need a device that reminds me to take along clothes to change into after an event. Oh, and some dignity to start preserving.

I could see that pleats would be nice but I really like the way you can quickly wrap this thing on you and then tear it off when you're done changing.
Alison - Chamois time is riding time. Go to the event in street clothes and you'll never forget them!

The kilt is a knee-length garment with pleats at the rear, originating in the traditional dress of men and boys in the Scottish Highlands of the 16th century. Since the 19th century it has been associated with the wider culture of Scotland in general, or with Celtic (and more specifically Gaelic) heritage elsewhere. It is most often made of woollen cloth in a tartan pattern.

Though the Scottish kilt is most often worn mainly on formal occasions or at Highland Games and sports events, it has also been adapted as an item of fashionable informal, and formal, male clothing in recent years.

I always it when i am on travel.

This is good in dress.

Mmm, thanks for the wikipedia entry?
