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.

Quality Price ValueThe kilt is beautifully constructed, love the pleating contrast, USAKILTS is the best in the business in my opinion. Their customer service is unmatched. (Posted on 8/3/2022)
- Excellent quality, price and service. Coldpaws
Quality Price ValueFor the price they are charging I doubt you will find a better quality kilt. I also forgot to add another item to my order and didn’t want to pay shipping twice but they were happy to put a manual order through and ship it with my kilt. Excellent experience and likely not my last. (Posted on 7/6/2022)
- My First Kilt Ever GeorgiaRebel64
Quality Price ValueLove this kilt, followed measuring instructions and added 1/2 “ to them. Fit perfectly. I wish I had a pocket option though. I have worn it several times already. As I’m from a military family my foot wear are military boots. I have paired it with the family crest sporran, green socks, flashes to match tartan and a black waist coat.
Will be looking for a tartan waist coat in the future to match it. I love it , it fit perfectly straight out of the box. (Posted on 6/29/2022)

Quality Price ValueThe casual kilt is my go to kilt for daily wear (although I have some that are semi traditional). Wool is too hot in Houston so I go for PV. My most recent tartan was Sterling Yellow, and it looks fantastic. (Posted on 6/20/2022)

- Personable and excellent customer services! Seth
Price Value QualityThe 5 yard polyester viscose casual kilt looks fantastic, fits great, is made with excellence, and the customer service is even greater! I ordered my kilt to sit at my "jeans waist," and checked my measurements multiple times before submitting my order. When USA Kilts received my order, a staff member reached out to me personally to double check the measurements. The staff member expressed to me that it seemed like the kilt would likely be shorter in length than I desired based on the measurements I provided. The staff member patiently listened to me explain the process of how I measured, assisted me with my questions, and after briefly talking I decided to add an inch to the "length" of my kilt measurement.
I write all of this to say that the kilt fits perfectly, and it is because a staff member noticed a measurement that seemed like it might be off, and took the time to reach out directly and clarify with me (the customer). (Posted on 5/13/2022)
- Casual kilt Jim
Value Quality PriceThe kilt fit perfect and now my grandson and I can both share our Celtic heritage in style. I was trying to keep the cost down not knowing if he would really get into it like I have so I purchased the casual kilt. Unfortunately I purchased a sporran for him from “got kilt” to try and keep the cost for him down. The sporran, as I already knew was cheaply made and it won’t even stay snapped a shut. You get what you pay for and the frustration that comes along with it. Thank you for putting out good products. I will not make that mistake again! (Posted on 5/4/2022)
- Amazing quality Fast Fast Fast! Celtic Nations Casual
Price Value QualityMy second casual kilt from USA Kilts. The Celtic Nations tartan was designed by a genius, the colors seem to go with any hose or shirt. Fit is perfect and the lighter weight material just feels right. I paid for RUSH service and got it in 11 days. Note I have been wearing kilts for over 30 years, I love this one!
