  • Measuring Instructions

    STOCK Size measuring instructions:

    The vast majority of our customers fit into a jacket that is a stock size (i.e. 44 Reg or 48 Long).  To figure out which size will fit you best, follow the instructions below.

    Chest Size

    This measurement is best taken using a cloth tape measure, while wearing a t-shirt.

    Lift up your arms and wrap the tape measure around your chest at the widest point (you can then put your arms down).

    Breathe "normally" and don't over inflate or exhale too much.

    Take the measurement (not snug) at the widest part of your chest.

    Add 2" to 3" to that number to reach the next "even" number up. Example: If you measure 43 to 44, you would order a size 46. If you measure 41 or 42, you would order a size 44.

    Short / Regular / Long

    5' 4" to 5' 9" - Short
    5' 10" to 6' 1" - Regular
    6' 2" to 6' 4" -Long

    If you are taller than 6'4", contact us for an Extra Long or Extra Extra long.


    MADE TO MEASURE Jacket instructions:


    If you find that standard jacket sizes don't fit your frame due to an overly athletic build (very broad shoulders with tiny waist) or a stout build (rounded shoulders with a large waist), then we can gladly make a jacket tailored to your frame.  We will need the following measurements, as well as your height and 3 pictures of you in a form fitting shirt from the front, side and rear view.


    Lift your arms and wrap the tape measure around your torso at the widest point. Put your arms down. Stand tall and "at ease". Do not over inflate your chest. Just stand and breathe normally.  Measure loosely around the chest at under arm height while wearing a t-shirt. 





    Measure loosely around your "True Waist" at your naval while wearing a shirt.

    Half Back

    Put on a well fitting suit jacket. Keep your arms at your side. Find the center back, center seam, starting at 6" below the collar. Measure from that point to the seam where the arm meets the jacket body (roughly 4" down from the shoulder). If you do not have a suit jacket, measure from the spine (4" below base of neck) to the edge of your shoulder.

    Sleeve Length

    Put on a well fitting suit jacket. Keep your arms at your side. Measure from the shoulder seam (the top of the sleeve where it meets the jacket body) to the cuff. If you do not have a suit jacket, measure from the edge of the shoulder, down your arm to where you'd like the sleeve to end. Typically, jacket sleeves end 1.5" to 2" above the base knuckle of the thumb, breaking at the wrist or slightly lower. Roughly 1/4" to 1/2" of shirt sleeve should show below the cuff of the jacket.

    Perfect for a piper!!  Farmer Jan
    This cape is so much better than the one I had when I was in a band! It has pockets and a special non slip area where the pipe bag goes. (Posted on 10/29/2019)

    Excellent Product  Paul
    I live in Los Angeles so I don't anticipate using this product much but the quality sure looks good. I love the drumstick pocket. Excellent customer service by the people at USA Kilts. (Posted on 6/9/2017)
    Quality Item  Kevin
    Reasonable price, great customer service, and shipped in a hurry. What else could you ask for? (Posted on 2/20/2017)
    Great product  Jay.H
    No matter what the item might be, I order from USA Kilts with confidence! They have great customer service, fast/cheap shipping, and their products are always the highest quality. Hopefully, I will never need to use this cape with the pipe band, but it looks great and it comes in a handy carrying pouch. (Posted on 1/10/2017)
    Looks good  Pcadden
    Luckily we have not have to use this yet. The quality looks great and it feels heavy for the price. I hope we never have to open them but am confident it will be worth it. (Posted on 3/18/2016)
    Keeps you dry  Rick
    After borrowing this same cape from my pipe teacher a couple times for ceremonies, I finally have my own. Excellent design and well made. Does what it's supposed to do and looks great. (Posted on 3/12/2016)
    Looks great!  Donald
    Purchased this for a trip to Alaska and to use this winter here in California. As things would have it, Ketchican, Alaska receives 12 to 14 FEET of rain a year, we were there for 3 days and nothing but sunshine and nice weather. Hopefully it will rain at home this winter, as this raincoat appears that I will stay dry no matter what.
    Great quality, superb workmanship and brilliant design. (Posted on 10/14/2014)
