Men wear kilts to clean windows, gutters

April 3, 2013 at 3:16 PM

HOLLISTON, Mass., April 3 (UPI) -- A Massachusetts business called Men in Kilts offers customers window washing, pressure washing and gutter cleaning by men dressed in traditional Scottish garb.

Shane Ross of the Holliston, Mass., business, a franchise spun off from the original Men in Kilts service in Vancouver, British Columbia, said the response had been positive, WHDH-TV, Boston, reported Wednesday.

"I got a good thumbs up from everybody. They liked it, they liked the idea of the kilt," Ross said.

Ross said he isn't bothered by working in a kilt.

"Nope, I'm Scottish so I don't mind it at all, paying tribute to my heritage," he said.

Judy Briggs, the franchise owner, said the men do a lot of climbing in their kilts but they remind customers of their "no peeking" rule.

"We did a photo shoot last week in Boston. My son was up on the second floor and the women were walking down the street and instead of going around the ladder, they'd go under the ladder. And he just politely said, 'no peeking,'" Briggs said.
