Our Casual Kilt is made from the best “non wool” tartan fabric available: a 12 oz Polyester Viscose material that is woven in the UK. This fabric is extremely hard wearing, has Low Pill™ technology to resist pilling and is Teflon® coated to resist stains. It holds a crisp pleat and is easy to iron.
The Casual Kilt is designed for the budget-minded customer or first time kilt wearer hesitant to make the investment in a more expensive kilt. It’s also great for highland athletes, runners, and anyone looking for a low-yardage kilt with excellent durability and stain resistance. It’s perfect for wearing to the pub or in situations where spills or getting dirty is expected.
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.
The Casual Kilt can either be worn at the "True Waist" (A) like a traditional kilt or at the "Jeans Waist" (B). 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.
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 the number we use for your hip size. In most cases, it's about 4-6 inches larger than the waist measurement.
If possible, it’s best to take the length measurement wearing shorts and a form fitting t-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 22" 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.
If the 22" 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 22" 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.

Price Value QualityI'm looking forward to using this kilt for my rucking events. (Posted on 4/8/2019)
- Won't buy a Kilt anywhere else! Jeff
Price Value Quality(I should have put this here sooner, as I've been wearing this Kilt for 18 months now, but I tend to forget to do these things, this is on their google reviews and facebook page as well)
Ordered a Pub Package, and I can't rave about how wonderful these folks have been. The first day I was trying to place my order, I was having a computer issue (totally my fault, I had set some firewalls in place while my 6 year old grand daughter was playing a game and forgot to take them down,) and I sent an email to their customer support at 11pm on a Friday night (Midnight for them) and received a response right back and they were going to call me the next day and we would go over the order on the phone. Thankfully I was able to spare them that, as I uncovered my mistake and fixed it (like I said, it was totally on my end.) I placed the order with them on 9/17/2017 and had it at my door on 10/2/2017.
The quality is top notch, and even though I bought a casual kilt, it still feels 100% better than some of the other makers kilts. They have a fan for life, and anyone I know that's in the market, I know where I'm going to send them. USA Kilt all the way! (Posted on 4/7/2019)
- Well done! Paul
Price Value QualityQuick turnaround when ordered fits great. Wears well and suits the need for athletics very well. Really like the Velcro in lieu of leather closures on waist. Makes for quick and easy adjustments while participating in athletic events. Overall well done! (Posted on 4/6/2019)
- Good products - purchaser needs work. Gwh
Value Quality PriceGood product, reasonably priced. Learning lessons about sizing... good in the waist, length needs a bit more tweaking. (Posted on 4/1/2019)
- Excellent Product at a Great Price Colin
Price Value QualityPurchased this kilt as an entry level kilt for bagpiping. Absolutely love it! It works great as a casual kilt, with a day sporran, or you can dress it up a bit with a dress sporran and shirt to use as an inexpensive piping uniform. (Posted on 3/30/2019)
- Awesome casual kilt Scott K.
Value Quality PriceI purchased the casual PV kilt in St Andrews tartan (name of my church) and like the tartan better seeing it in person. I am a big fan of the casual kilt (I have 4) and will likely purchase more in the future. (Posted on 3/25/2019)
- Great first kilt! Jace M
Price Value QualityI bought this kilt 3 years ago as my first kilt once I discovered and researched my Scottish heritage. I have worn it many times and it looks great! The fabric is very durable and easy to clean and iron. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking into buying there first kilt who don't want to get an expensive wool kilt right away. From the quality of the kilt I will definitely be buying a wool kilt from USA Kilts in the hopefully near future! (Posted on 3/23/2019)
- Love the Casual Kilt Scott K
Value Quality PriceI now have four casual kilts and a wool 8 yd from USA Kilts. The casual kilt, with the velcro closure is pure genius. Great for wearing around the house or dressed up to go to church and special occasions. I think Jamie has made all of mine (Black MacMillan, Ireland National, St Andrew, and Cty Fermanagh) and he has done a great job. Already have some more picked out to add to the "collection."
