Quality Price ValueI ordered a 16oz Great Kilt during the Covid 19 virus. I was told there might be a 3 to 4 month lead time and I got it much sooner than that so I am very happy and will recommend USA kilts to everyone that i talk to about kilts!! (Posted on 5/7/2020)

Price Value QualityI ordered by phone, the clerk was helpful and informative. I am a repeat customer, I only wish I could remember how to put it on properly. Does it come with a young attractive lass to help me threw the ordeal. (Posted on 1/23/2020)

- Buying a Tartan for a Great Kilt JohnR
Price Value QualityBe sure to get your swatches of the tartan before you buy because there are subtle differences among manufacturers. Compare prices among various vendors and you will find that USA Kilts has a great price. Add that to their superb assistance and overall they come out ahead. Great people to work with when issues come up, which they will when ordering a tartan made in Scotland. To get the best result in creating your Great kilt, look at several you Tube videos to get the gist that there are various methods and nothing is set in stone except that a belt is absolutely required!

- Amazing Kilt and Service Andrew
Price Value QualityOrdered the 16oz fabric and it is amazing quality. Great feel and weight to the fabric. I will be wearing this as often as I can.
Originally was on back order until the end of October, but I received it close to the beginning of the month. Great customer service with informing me and offering alternatives if I was interested. I will definitely be ordering all future kilts from USA Kilts. (Posted on 10/17/2019)
- Braw! Storyteller
Price Value QualityThe tartan arrived and is amazing. It took a few attempts to get one that was suitable but it was not USA Kilts that was at fault, sadly some of my choices were no longer available or in double width. However the staff went out of there way to make sure I got the Tartan I wanted, Great service, Beautiful Tartan and would use again and highly recommend. (Posted on 6/28/2019)

The Great Kilt is a true symbol of the Highlands and of Scotland.
Known in Gaelic as the feileadh mor (Feileadh Mòr), this is the big kilt you see wrapped around Scottish Highlanders of the 16th through the 18th centuries. It has picked up many pop-culture names over the years.
In reality, the Scottish great kilt is just a large piece of tartan cloth (if someone offers you a great kilt for sale and it is pre-pleated, watch out!). The trick to wearing one lies in learning how to pleat it around your torso and fix it in place with a plaid brooch and kilt belt. Our 16 oz. wool great kilt and 13 oz wool great kilt are each sourced from the best tartan mills in Scotland and are available in your choice of tartan sett. If you want something a little lighter weight for summer festivals, check out our 11oz great kilt.
Is this the kilt I see people wearing as a Renn Faire Kilt?
Yes. Though not every renaissance kilt is worn authentically and practice putting it on is crucial. Decide if you want to create a fantasy Celtic warrior look (like for a LARP) or a historically accurate Highlander or Jacobite look. Then practice before you go to faire!
Can I get an Outlander kilt, Braveheart kilt, Rob Roy kilt or Highlander kilt?
Yes because they are all essentially the same garment, just known popularly by the movie or TV series title. Of all of these, we are most pleased with the research that went into the costumes of the Outlander series. Very authentic look!
How do I find my family great kilt?
Just click on the tartan picker link and do a search on your name. We will provide you with a custom great kilt. That means it will be in any tartan you like. Remember that most Clan tartans were not registered until the early 19th century, so don’t worry too much about having an exact tartan for a historical costume or impression. In most of history, you just wore the tartan your wife had woven for you during the winter.
