What's new?



Dress2kilt.eu has existed since 2010, and before then it had predecessors starting 2001 under various names. By then, websites were looked upon on a computer with 14” or perhaps 17” screens with low resolution. Accordingly, website designs should not exceed 800 x 640 pixels.
Websites were to have for free and various programs made it relatively easy to make homepages, which a lot of people did. “Everyone” could have a website and without hardly any knowledge make one. No wonder, there were many websites for new and growing interests, like-men-in-skirts, and men-in-kilts.

After some years, free websites were no longer an option, and many websites for kilts and other skirted garments disappeared, but in 2010 this one found a new home on a paid-for server in a redesigned form and under the name Dress2kilt.eu.

However, the launch of the first iPhone in 2007 and especially the first iPad in 2010 should soon cause webdesigners to think in new and various formats, making it increasingly something for professionals.

Dress2kilt 2010 was not responsive, being, like still many websites at that time, designed for a desktop or a laptop monitor, and on a mobile device it was hardly readable. Therefore, it was more and more a question of closing the website or making it responsive.

The webmaster not being a professional web designer and with no budget to have someone design it, whereafter he could not possibly maintain it without external help, he decided to find out how to do and make it a DIY-project, which he did.
Since 2019 Dress2kilt is responsive. It might not be perfect yet, but it makes fun working with it and currently improve it. Nothing is worse than a website not being maintained. This one is and that several times a year. The latest changes are to see immediately below:

Champion Kilts
A kilt from Champion Kilts has almost blown me away; so good is quality of fabric, sewing, and precision in pleating. Everything is not only better than on any other kilt from Pakistan, I know of; it also compares to much more expensive kilts, sewn in Scotland. Definitely a Best Buy and the company behind it thus has my highest recommendation.
