New Kilt Model - Top Stitched 8 Yard Kilt (WITH RUSH Option!)
After much R & D (and taking a construction cue from some of our Scottish peers), we are adding a new kilt to our lineup. The Top Stitched 8 Yard kilt.
We've been asked for our Premier 8 Yard Kilts, but with our rush option (out the door in 3 weeks). We've never offered them with a rush b/c they take so long to make that they must be scheduled into production. Looking critically at our process of kilt construction, the longest part of the construction process in a Premier 8 Yard kilt is the sewing of the pleats inside out. That literally takes up 45% of the time in producing the kilt.
Well, after making and testing a few for store inventory and for store employees, we've come up with a design that STILL HAS the same internal construction bits of our Premier kilts, but we top stitch the pleats (like on our 5 yarders) to save time and allow us to offer the kilts at a lower price point (AND have a rush option available).
Without further ado, I give you our Top Stitched 8 Yard kilt: http://www.usakilts.com/top-stitched-8-yard-wool-kilt.html
