• Who he is: Kevin Williams
• What he’s wearing: A twill camouflage kilt from Utilikilt.com and a sporran bag from Amerikilt.com. (“Usually a sporran is worn in the middle,” Kevin explains — he updated his by adding a chain and wearing it like a messenger bag.)
• Why we love it: Kilts have been working their way back into men’s fashion, helped by modern fabrics (denim and canvas) and celebs (Vin Diesel wore a leather version to the MTV awards a few years back). Kevin makes his work for a stroll around town — the camo print worn with a tee and sandals renders this Scottish classic a viable alternative to cargo shorts.

There’s nothing quite like new clothes, unless it’s new clothes when someone else is footing the bill. This summer 250 lucky (well, they hope they’re lucky!) shoppers get a chance at a $5,000 shopping spree at Bellagio Art-to-Wear (5 Biltmore Plaza, 277-8100). Here’s the deal: The Biltmore Village shop is holding a raffle to benefit local Terpsicorps Theatre of Dance. Tickets are limited, and run $100 each — steep, but it’s for a good cause. The winner will be announced at Terpsicorps’ Saturday, Aug. 12 production of The Scarlet Letter. Visit the Bellagio store or go to bellagioarttowear.com for info.
