Default When is it socially acceptable for a man to wear a kilt?

When is it socially acceptable for a man to wear a kilt?
Assuming the answer asks in the context of modern Western culture: On any formal occasion.

It is acceptable for a man to wear a kilt on a formal occasion, such as a wedding, christening, funeral, part of a military uniform, etc. provided he has some credible reason for doing so, such as Irish (it is an Irish invention*) or Scottish heritage, membership or service in selected military units [1].

Absent these reasons, wearing a kilt will be seen as a fashion statement at best and would provoke either discomfort or amusement in others at worst.

For myself (no service in the armed forces):

Would I wear a kilt into the office on a random Tuesday? No, but a kilt is not provided for under my company's dress code (I work for a multi-national).
Would I wear a kilt for going to the shops? Yes.
Would I wear a kilt to my wedding? Yes, and I will some day.

* the kilt 'proper' that is, the x-yards of fabric one. The 'skirt' version was invented in the 19th Century [2].

I have a Scouting Kilt that is appropriate for amy Scouting event.
And my younger Boy Scouts love it.
Some of them have bought their own kilt as well now.

Kilts are awesome. And comfy. I wish I had one. And your work won't let you wear a kilt? Will they let women wear pants? Or skirts? Seems like a perfect opportunity for a discrimination lawsuit. I understand the need to look "professional" and I'm sure that could be held up in court, but if its a formalish looking kilt, why should they have a problem with it?
Don't really litigate this though. There's way too much of that in general.

I think one would want to be quite Scaw-ish to wear a kilt.

Perhaps a more interesting question-- Would you ride a sled in a kilt?
