Rockin the man kilt
This may be the worst summer heat in the United States since 1964 but Irish American mechanics at O’Brien Automotive, in Tulsa, Oklahoma have come up with a solution. They wear kilts while they work.

The men wear them from May to October saying they’re “natural air conditioning”.

David O’Brien said he ditched pants during the summer 40 years ago, opting instead for a cooler kilt. Despite strange looks he might get he calls the kilt “the manliest man wear you can wear”.

Of course when the mechanics go under vehicles a certain amount of “kilt etiquette” is required.

Here’s the KVUE ABC report:
