How to measure for your Kilt

Guides Banners Kilt Outift935X340

FOR THE KILT

We will require the following measurements from you in centimetres or inches:

WAIST

Run tape measure firmly around your waist at the navel, the actual kilt waist, not at the top of the hip where trousers/pants usually sit. Please make sure to measure firmly, as the kilt sits higher on your body, thus it needs to fit snugly enough to ensure that it will stay up.

HIP / SEAT 

Run the tape measure firmly, but not tightly around the widest part of your hips or seat.

LENGTH MEASUREMENT

To measure the length for your kilt please kneel on the ground, place the tape on the floor then measure up to the navel/belly button.

FOR THE PRINCE CHARLIE OR ARGYLE KILT JACKET

YOUR HEIGHT

How your Kilt is made

The Fabric

We use a top quality lighter weight 10oz kilt fabric woven in Scotland to make your casual kilt. This fabric will last forever if cared for correctly and has enough weight to hold the pleats and create a good swing. We use 4 yards of this fabulous tartan cloth to make your kilt and this allows us to offer it to you a great price.


Making your Kilt

Buying a kilt is creating a family heirloom that can be handed down from generation to generation. Our kilts are all traditionally made in Scotland with all the trappings of a high quality finish including 2 leather straps and buckles on the waist and one on the hip, fringed front apron and nice deep pleats for a great swing. The kilts are made using a combination of machine and hand sewing to ensure a top quality finish.


To Sett or To Stripe

As standard we make our kilts to Sett but if you want yours made to Stripe or horizonatally please just ask. Sometimes this costs a little bit more as it uses more fabric and takes more time but rest assured we will only apply a surcharge if we have to.


The Tartan

Your kilt is made to measure just for you and you can choose from over 500 Scottish clan tartans. If you can't find the one you are looking for please ask as we may be able to source it for you.

How to care for your kilt


Properly cared for your kilt will last for generations. This is a pure wool fabric and should be dry cleaned only. Wool fabric can become dull with general dust and dirt. Gentle brushing with a garment brush will brighten it up again.
