An informed consumer makes for a happy customer. We want the kilt you purchase to line up with your expectations and exceed them. Accordingly, we’ve broken down our kilts and their features and listed them out so you can choose which is best for you. Also, at the bottom of this page, there is a grid comparison of our different kilt models:
 

Casual Kilt:

The Casual Kilt is for the budget-minded customer or for a first time kilt wearer hesitant to make the investment in a more expensive kilt.  It’s 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. Our Casual Kilt is made from the best “non-wool” tartan fabric available:  a 12 oz Polyester Viscose (aka PV) material woven in the UK.  This fabric is very hard-wearing, has Low Pill™ technology to resist pilling and is Teflon® coated to resist stains.  It also holds a crisp pleat, is easy to iron and is machine washable.

Semi Traditional Kilt:

The Semi Traditional Kilt is great for the budget-minded customer who wants a traditionally styled kilt.  It’s also good for the customer who has a wool kilt, but wants something less expensive or lighter weight for wearing to the pub or outside in the summer months.  It will look good anywhere from the ball game and concerts to formal black tie affairs. Our Semi Traditional Kilt is made from the best non-wool tartan fabric available:  a 12 oz Polyester Viscose (aka PV) material woven in the UK.  This fabric is very hard-wearing, has Low Pill™ technology to resist pilling and is Teflon® coated to resist stains.  It also holds a crisp pleat, is easy to iron and is machine washable.

Our 5 Yard Wool kilt is a fantastic value for a “mid-level” kilt.  This kilt, like our 8 yard models, uses the finest 13 and 16 oz wool cloth woven in the UK. Click here to buy our 5 Yard Wool Kilt
