As a result, pleats and folds all but disappeared from civilian clothing.
But what about the kilt? This is overwhelmingly made of folds and/or pleats. (It requires 6-8 yards of material to make a kilt for a 36" waist!)
Did kilts have an exemption on cultural grounds?
Or was there an austerity kilt?
Or perhaps production of kilts stopped altogether?
