Duane: Kilt Makes Scots Special

Our discussion of interim parks director Bill Greenwood's kilt this afternoon has veered off into an unpredictable direction (which is the only thing predictable about Huckleberries Online). Duane Rasmussen (who I thought was Scandinavian) is claiming some Scottish in his lineage and taken umbrage with a comment I made about Bill's kilt. In a bit of a tiff, Duane asked: "By the way what do Portuguese men wear to make themselves look special?" I was going to say, "Our pleasant olive complexion." But Dennis intervened with: "Mustaches!!!! They start going them when they're 6 months old!!!" Actually, that's not far off. I started my mustache when I was 18 -- and have kept it ever sense. My wife hasn't seen me without it. My son has said he doesn't want to live in a world without my mustache. All of which raises the question someone posed by Duane:

Question: What do the men of your nationality wear to make them look special?
