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.

- GREAT! Duff
Price Value QualityOut grew my first kilt, and have wanted to ware one again. Did not know exactly what to expect when I ordered this kilt. This kilt is wonderful. Light weight. Don't like wearing dark clothing on a hot day so opted for the Stirling plaid. I like the way it looks on me, wife, daughter and grand kids will just have to get used to me in a kilt. Trousers creep up while driving, never had that problem with the first kilt. We travel to another state for winter. The town where we stay for winter has one other person who wears a kilt. He won't be alone this year. Special thanks to Jamie, you did a great job of making my kilt. Thanks to Rocky and Eric. Have viewed many of your videos and looking forward to your new videos.

Price Value QualityI have been buying kilts Freon USA Kilts for many years -just ordered a kilt for my daughter (a rush) and it was delivered within 8 days! I referred my sisters and now the grandchildren are getting theirs here. Thanks for great service and products!!! (Posted on 8/8/2019)
- Great summer option Mark
Price Value QualityUSA Kilts casual kilt is well made and comfortable, if you are looking for something affordable that can withstand some abuse this is a great option. I was a little hesitant about Velcro closures over straps, but honestly for a daily wearing kilt, it’s much more comfortable. The PV fabric is lightweight enough for good solid summertime wear to festivals and highland games. Best of all – toss it in the washer when it needs. Customer service with USAK is as always superb!

- Works great for hiking Everyone needs a kilt to hike in
Value Quality PriceI was hesitant to get a kilt with velcro for hiking, but I wanted a non wool model so I bit the bullet and got this one in the Scruffy Wallace tartan.
It fits great. The velcro isn't going to come undone. It has been great on the hikes I've worn it on. I usually wear pants with multiple pockets to store items such as a phone, pocket knife, snacks, etc so I had to give that up. I am still looking for options to put some kind of "cargo" pockets in the same pattern that would hold a phone or a water bottle while not looking too out of place. I don't want flappy pockets, I want something attached to the kilt.
Regardless of this, the kilt is awesome for hiking and I got a lot of compliments on my last hike wearing it to the top of Texas. I will buy another to have multiple hiking options. (Posted on 7/3/2019)

- A good buy Labhras Morton
Price Value QualityI purchased my Casual Kilt more than 10 years ago. It still looks good and shows no wear. I wear it hiking,to Highland games, Scottish American Military Society events when I don't wear my US Army kilt. I also rely on it for casual wear around the house when I don't feel like wearing trousers. Now I'm looking to get one in another clan tartan. (Posted on 6/4/2019)
- Overall, Excellent Product Dale K.
Value Quality PriceI've had my casual kilt for a couple of months now. It wears well, and requires absolutely minimal maintenance when not being worn hard.Despite the very light feel of the PV fabric, the drape is perfect, and the kilt moves very nicely. It is FAR superior to it's acrylic competitors in every aspect, and thus well worth the slight increase in expense. Being as light as it is, I expect to be getting a LOT of wear out of it over the coming summer.
My only (and very minor) complaint is that there isn't a strap closure option available for those of us who prefer the traditional look and feel.
Definitely won't be my last Casual from USAKilts. (Posted on 5/21/2019)
