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.
