A kilt has pleats on the rear; on the front it has two
overlapping plain aprons and is closed by means of straps and buckles at the
hips. Not the first Utilikilt, launched 2000. The only resemblance it had with a traditional kilt
was in fact pleats on the rear. It had no aprons, but pleats on the front, too. And it was closed by means of a zipper like on jeans. Technically
it was therefore a skirt, made for men. Nevertheless it was positioned as a
kilt, what might have been important.
Soon after the "New Original" with aprons came on the market and for a few years customers could choose between the
two designs, but then the "Standard" disappeared.
Some years ago
the company launched a “new Standard” which they called “The Spartan” which in design might give associations of ancient Rome. Obviously it did not succeed. And today "The Spartan" is the name of a redesigned "Original". Confused? No wonder.
The pictures below show the "Original Standard".
