Jewish law does not allow women to wear men's clothing.

So, do Scottish Jewish women wear pants?

This question is Purim Torah and is not intended to be taken completely seriously. See the Purim Torah policy.

    Why is it a PTIJ - it is a valid Halachic question? – Al Berko Mar 7 at 21:58
  • @alberko I'm not sure what the joke was supposed to be, but the serious answer is that they wear whatever Scottish women wear. – Heshy Mar 7 at 23:58

    The Purim Torah answer here must involve Scotch somehow; The Pasuk says nosen lachmi umeimai, water + bread = Scotch; ... "ve-shikuyai" even though normally Shok be'isha erva, here we give them leggings too; therefore it means that the women who drink Scotch should wear pants. – Shalom Mar 7 at 23:59

    I repeat my vote to close. This is not a Purim Torah question. – Double AA Mar 8 at 20:47
  • In light of the closing, reopening, and more pending close votes on this question, can you clarify why this is not a serious question? – Alex Mar 10 at 0:55

In Scotland, men wear either kilts or trousers, the latter being called trews. As men may wear either trews or kilts, women may wear neither, due to concerns of קלי גבר. Instead, women are to wear barrels used for the production of whisky, as these קלים are not used for menswear and should a man wear it, we accuse him of having consumed the contents, which is forbidden due to בל תשחית.*

*Using whisky simply to become drunk is תשחית according to many authorities, who hold that good whisky should be reserved for שמחות and עלויי נשמות.
