It was no surprise for anyone who has seen law prof Clark Silliman walking around bare-legged at Edmonds Community College. But Oprah Winfrey, who you'd think has seen it all, said she'd never seen anything like the 70-year-old Silliman as he explained on her TV show yesterday why he no longer wears pants: To live free. Once you put on a kilt, he says, you never go back. As his exasperated sister-in-law says: "He has a summer kilt, a plaid kilt, a camo kilt - he even has a sport kilt."
She took her case to Oprah, who agreed to do a fashion Make Over on Clark and his wife Linda, along with other couples. Clark ended up happily kilt-less (for the moment anyway) in a snazzy suit, and Linda got a glam look. She loved it, she said, and even better, "I'm also glad not to be wearing the pants in the family."
