Celtic Artisan Guarantee

We guarantee that every highland wear product USA Kilts sells is proudly made in America, Scotland, England, Ireland or Wales. By purchasing this product, you are supporting skilled Celtic artisans. Your choice honors the heritage you embrace and preserves it for future generations.


 

When taking measurements for your kilt, make sure to use a good sewing tape measure.  Wrap it around yourself at the widest part of your waist (typically just above the belly button) as this is where the top of the kilt will sit. The tape measure should be pulled as snug as you want your finished kilt to be.  

 

Do NOT hold your stomach in. You’ll only get a kilt that's too small. Just relax and stand "at ease".

 

For more detailed instructions, open the "Measuring Instructions" tab under the product description or watch our video on how to measure by the main product image.

 
 
 

With the same tape measure, measure around the absolute largest part of your rear.

 

Take this measurement a little LOOSELY. You should be able to slide a finger between the tape measure and your body when you measure. This is your HIP measurement.

 

In most cases, it's about 4-6 inches larger than the waist measurement.

 
 
 

Stand tall with your back straight. Do NOT look down or bend over as this will change the length measurement. Just stand tall and face forward.

 

Have another person kneel at your side with the tape measure. They will put the "0" end of the tape measure on the SIDE of your body at the top of where you took your waist measurement (likely just above your "love handles").  Measure from that point down the side of your body to the middle of your knee, which is where the bottom of the kilt will be. That distance will be your kilt's length.

 

For more detailed instructions & alternative ways to measure length, open the "Measuring Instructions" tab under the product description or watch our video on how to measure by the main product image.

 
 
 
This is used to double check your length measurement. Please be accurate with your height.
 
 
 

Flashes are the elastic garters worn to hold up your kilt hose. We give you the option to purchase them in the same tartan material as your kilt.

 
 
 

The Fly Plaid is the piece of cloth worn over the left shoulder that resembles a cape.  If you are considering a fly plaid, it is BEST purchased at the same time as your kilt, so it can be cut from the same bolt of cloth.  This way, there will be no issues with dye lots or different colors used in the fly plaid and the kilt.

 

 
 
 

4 clip Kilt Hanger

 

If you've ever tried to hang a heavy kilt on a 2 clip plastic hanger, you know they can slip off.  Solve that problem by using the same professional grade hanger we use in our store.

 
 
 
Our average turnaround on a kilt is 9 to 13 weeks. If you'd like the kilt faster, we offer a Rush option to have it out the door within 4 weeks for an additional charge.

  • Product Description

    Our 5 Yard Wool kilt is a fantastic value for a “mid level” kilt.  This kilt, like our 8 yard models, uses the finest 13 and 16 oz wool cloth woven in the UK.  Our 5 Yard Wool kilt is a great option for those who want their clan tartan, but don’t want to invest in a full 8 Yard Kilt.  It is also a wonderful option for those looking for a lower yardage kilt for it's reduced weight during summer wear.  It will look good in both a casual setting, like festivals or the pub, and a formal setting, like a wedding.


    Measuring for your kilt:  We would ask that you measure carefully for our kilts.  Since these are custom made to fit the measurements provided, you will need to be sure of the exact sizing. We will not refund in the case of mistakes in measuring.  Detailed measuring instructions can be found in the "Measuring Instructions" tab below this text.

  • Measuring Instructions

    Waist


    A Traditional kilt is worn higher than your pants, just above the belly button (for larger customers, just above the WIDEST part of your belly).  This is where the top of the kilt will sit.

     

    DO NOT HOLD YOUR STOMACH IN. You’ll only going to get a kilt that's too small.  Just relax and stand "at ease".


    Make sure to use a good sewing tape measure. If you don't have a sewing tape measure, you can use a leather belt to measure. Wrap it around you, mark it and then lay it flat on a metal tape measure to get the measurement.

     

    The tape measure should be snug – as snug as you will be wearing the kilt.

     

    *Note: It will probably be 2 to 4 inches more than your pants size. This is common.

     

    *TIP: BIG guys with large bellies may want to wear the kilt around the naval, as it gives a more flattering appearance.

     



    Hip

    With the same tape measure, measure around the absolute largest part of your rear.

     

    Take this measurement a little LOOSELY. You should be able to slide a finger between the tape measure and your body when you measure.

     

    This is your HIP measurement. In most cases, it's about 4-6 inches larger than the waist measurement.

     



    Length

    If possible, it’s best to take this measurement wearing shorts and a form fitting shirt.  There are 3 different ways to measure length:

     

    1) With assistance

    2) With bath towel assistance

    3) Without assistance

     

    1) Length Measurement with assistance

     

    Stand tall with your back straight. Do NOT look down or bend over as this will change the length measurement. Just stand tall and face forward.

     

    Have the other person measure down the SIDE of your leg. On your side, put the "0" end of the tape measure at the top of where your kilt will be (the same height you took your waist measurement from). Measure from that point down the side of your body to the middle of your knee.

     

    The number on the tape that is right where the bottom edge of the kilt will be is the length.

     

    2) Length Measurement with bath towel assistance

     

    Take a bath towel and FOLD IT so that it is 24" long.

     

    Wear a pair of shorts, so you can see your knees and stand roughly 10 feet back from a full length mirror. Hold the towel up to your waist, putting the top of the towel at the spot you took the waist measurement… just above the belly button.

     

    If the 24" length hits below your knee, shorten the towel by folding another inch or two, so that the bottom edge hits you square in the middle of the kneecap.

     

    If the 24" length hits above your knee, lengthen the towel by unfolding an inch or two, so that the bottom edge hits you square in the middle of the kneecap.

     

    Once you have the top of the towel sitting at the top of where you want to wear the kilt and the bottom edge hitting the middle of your knee, measure the length of the folded towel from the top to the bottom. That will be your kilt length measurement

     

     

    3) Length measurement without assistance


    Kneel on the floor with your back straight. You're going to measure down the SIDE of your leg to the floor.

     

    From the top of where your kilt will be (the same height you took your waist measurement from), measure down the side of your body to the floor down the side of your leg. It's easier to put the "0" end of the tape measure barely touching the floor and the numbered end at the top.

     

    SUBTRACT 1" FROM THIS MEASUREMENT to have the kilt sit at the middle of the knee.


     


    Use the following chart for reference. These are typical height / length measurements.

    This 5-yard 15oz kilt far exceeded all expectations, and clearly establishes the reputation of USA Kilts in my book. It is the first kilt I purchased from USA Kilts, but won't be the last, and I am proud to display my family tartan, which visually represents my clan, my family, my name, and myself, in this superb garment!

    I was expecting the highest quality from USAK, but when I received this 5-yard 16oz kilt and experienced it first hand, my greatest expectations became insignificant. This is without doubt the finest garment I have had the joy of owning and will be proud to display my family tartan in this way. It may be my first kilt from USAK, but it won't be my last!

    I cannot say enough good things about my wool 5-yard kilts. They are a fantastic kilt that uses a little less material than a hand stitched 8-yard quilt, cost a bit less, and looks great and is still made with the top quality work I've come to expect from USA Kilts. A great option for anyone, but especially for 'serial kilters' such as myself. I feel less on edge wearing a 5-yard kilt out and about that I would wearing an 8-yard kilt. I'll be buying several more over the coming months!

    PS: The measuring guide is right. Follow the guide! (Posted on 10/3/2022)

    I have owned other, less expensive kilts in my life. I loved them, wore them, and they were a fine value. But I have always had my eye on the real deal. I had a wedding coming up and finally decided to order myself a 5-yard wool kit, custom made, MacGregor Modern. I ordered a rush on the production, and it arrived in plenty of time for the event. I was worried about how it would fit because I measured myself (using the instructions online). Who wouldn’t worry a little?
    Anyway, the fit was just right. The kilt was stunning. When I look at photos from the event, I catch myself looking at the pleats and the fine example of craftsmanship. So very pleased with everything about this purchase. (Posted on 9/15/2022)

    This was my third kilt from USA Kilts. I don't usually like light weight kilts, but this one was a band kilt. I paid the extra money for fast delivery and the kilt arrived in time for the Pleasanton Games. I highly recommend any kilt from USA Kilts. (Posted on 8/27/2022)

    Question: My tartan is available in 13 AND 16 oz cloth... which should I get?

    The weight of the cloth is a personal preference.  13 oz cloth is considered "Medium Weight" while 16 oz is considered "Heavy Weight".  While they will both make a very nice kilt, which weight you want is a matter of taste.  We would ask you to consider your environment... If you're the type of person who is always 'warm', live in a hot / humid climate or will be wearing your kilt most often outdoors during the summer, then we'd suggest the 13 oz cloth.  If you are always cool, live in a cool climate (Canada or northern USA), or will be wearing the kilt indoors most of the time, a 16 oz kilt may be right for you.  

    Question:  Why are there so many / so few choices for my name?

    Our wool tartan gallery shows you every stock tartan from every mill in the UK.  We want to make sure our customers can weigh all of their options before making a decision.  We don't just use 1 mill or 2 mills for our cloth... we use the top 7 tartan mills in the UK (plus some smaller ones for custom weaves).  This gives our customers the maximum number of tartan options we can provide.  

    Some clans have only 1 tartan or there may only be 1 mill that weaves a specific tartan.  Larger clans may have DOZENS of tartan designs woven by multiple mills.  The options shown in the Tartan Gallery lists them all.

USA Kilts is your custom kilt source -- regardless of budget, lifestyle or use. We pride ourselves on making the traditional kilt you need and will get the most enjoyment out of. Our 5-yard kilt is a great example -- a real tartan wool kilt with all the details you’d expect, but at a great “middle ground” price. Essentially, good five-yard kilt can serve as a multi use wool kilt for a number of occasions -- from casual festival wear to a formal kilted wedding. Some people may try to tell you that a 5 yard kilt is less authentic than an 8-yard kilt, but this is not the case. In fact this was the most common mens wool kilt up until the Victorian age -- and the first highland kilt invented after the Great Kilt. We make ours with traditional men's kilt wool direct from the mills in Scotland, so you are sure to find your Clan’s sett. If you have waited to get a quality tartan kilt due to price, wait no longer!
