Cherub Bottle Green School Knickers
I have always worn bottle green or navy blue school knickers under my kilt since the age of about 6. This would be 1954 when kilt wearing was more common than today. I regulary worn my kilt to school and wore a kilt for holidays, weekends and cubs.
The only style of school knickers I ever wore/wear were made by Cherub and had narrow tunnelled waist and leg bands into which a piece of elastic was threaded. These school knickers were very pratical for young kilted lads the elasticated legs ensuring one's modesty at at all times.
My 3 sisters and I would often wear our kilts on day trips etc and the four of us would be wearing identical bottle green knickers. I had'nt got my own knickers Mother would just take a pair out of my sisters knicker drawer and pop them onto a chair in my bedroom when it was a kilt wearing day.
I never went "commando"-too vunerable. I always feel safe wearing school knickers under my kilt. Luckily I still have a dozen pairs of genuine Cherub school knickers (bought some years ago from Exchange & Mart) which I wear today under my kilt. I am sure you other school knicker wearers will agree that nothing beats the cosy feeling of nice tight elasticated legged school knickers.
