Will I be assaulted if I wear a tartan kilt in America? To put this in to perspective, I am a disabled veteran suffering from severe PTSD and I am getting into sowing. As such I am looking to start making a few kilts (as I have forsworn pants more then 2 years ago now). I am not good at fighting alas, and am worried that I will be assaulted by a man taking offence to the material I might use in my tailoring.
