These diced hose are knit in Scotland and come in 2 colors. Black & Red or White & Red.
At USA Kilts, we will gladly tell you that all of our products are made in Scotland, England, Ireland, Wales and the USA. All of our kilts are made to the highest standards in the USA (by our staff) with materials from Scotland, England and Wales. We proudly support fair trade practices and promote Celtic traditions by offering products made in Celtic countries by Celtic artisans.
Using a cloth tape measure (or a retractable metal one in a pinch, though not quite as good), please take the following measurements in inches:
1. Length of the foot (while standing) from heel to toe. You must be standing when taking this measurement as putting your body weight on your feet will cause the length of your foot to change by about 1/4 to 1/2".
2. The height from the floor under your heel to the top of where you want to wear the hose. Typically, the hose are worn (turned down) 2" to 3" below the kneecap.
3. The circumference of your calf at the widest point. This is usually 5" to 6" below your kneecap.
4. The circumference of your ankle at the skinniest point.
5. The circumference of the ball of your foot (while standing). As in measurement 1, this must be taken while standing as putting your body weight on your foot expends this measurement a bit.

- Absolutely beautiful!!!!! T.McClive
Price Value QualityI cannot even begin to express how happy I am with these hose. The fit, the color, everything about them is stunning!
Don't have any doubts about buying a pair of these beauties!
As for the guy who said these were a looser weave than he expected; I don't see how. The weave is nice and tight and the pattern from the folded over hose top even matches perfectly with the part under the fold.
Well worth every penny!
Thanks Rocky and crew for another outstanding product!!! (Posted on 3/14/2015)

- Best Deal in Any Town!!! Glen
Price Value QualityYour own custom hose for only one hundred dollars!
I ordered red and white diced hose to wear with my black watch kilt. With this hose and kilt combination, I can wear the hose for everything except the most casual day usage. It has become my favourite pair of hose.
With short wide feet, and shorter lower leg but thick calf from years of lifting at work, it is a joy to have hose that are made to fit. The best thing is coming home at the end of the night and not finding compression marks on the leg.
I do find the knit a little loose, and the wool feels somewhat coarse, but overall this is still the best deal in any town! I don't think I will ever need to buy regular hose again

- Best there is! Dave
Quality Price ValueArrived far more quickly than even the estimated delivery time, are excellent in materials, workmanship, and fit, and the colors (black and ancient green) go perfectly with my ancient Sinclair kilt). I have shared the business cards with several interested friends, and I will be back for future needs. Doesn't hurt that the price is $50 or so less than anyone else is charging!

- This is where to buy Dancers Hose! David S. R. Clark, ASM
Price Value QualityI am as tight-fisted as they come. And I was a little hesitant when dropping a C note on a pair of hose for my 6 year old daughter.
But they were just perfect in every way; color/size/fit and durability.
I have a piece of advise for anyone purchasing good quality (wool) kilt hose. Think of them as hair...which they are. My group is instructed to hand-wash their hose in a good-quality shampoo, then use conditioner, and hang dry. Apparently, it works. I still have hose from when I started 33 years ago; and soft as a baby's bottom!

- Excellent value - wear like iron Steve
Price Value QualityI am a frequent kilt wearer and have worn these diced hose regularly for the past two years. They fit like a glove and wear like iron. Since they are made of wool, a quick hand washing in the sink and laying them to dry on a flat surface is all that is required. For the price, you can't go wrong. Highly recommended!

Kilt hose are typically worn pulled up, with the top stopping about 2 to 3" below the bottom of the kneecap. Also, note that they are "turned over" at the top. Elastic garters, called "flashes", are typically worn under the turned over top section to help keep the hose from falling down.
AvailabilityThese hose are custom knit here in the US, to your color requirements and to your custom measurements. They take typically 6 to 8 weeks to ship from the date your order is placed.
