Celtic Artisan Guarantee

We guarantee that every highland wear product USA Kilts sells is proudly made in America, Scotland, England, Ireland or Wales. By purchasing this product, you are supporting skilled Celtic artisans. Your choice honors the heritage you embrace and preserves it for future generations.


These kilts have slightly longer than average straps to accommodate a wider range of waist sizes.  Pick the kilt with the "waist range" that your waist measurement falls within. 



When taking measurements for your kilt, make sure to use a good sewing tape measure.  Wrap it around yourself at the widest part of your waist (typically just above the belly button) as this is where the top of the kilt will sit. The tape measure should be pulled as snug as you want your finished kilt to be.  Do NOT hold your stomach in. You’ll only get a kilt that's too small. Just relax and stand "at ease".



These kilts are made to a standard 24" length which will fit most people 5'9" tall to 6'1" tall.  If you'd like a shorter length, please let us know and we can hem the kilt for an additional charge.  

This is used to double check your length measurement. Please be accurate with your height.

Flashes are the elastic garters worn to hold up your kilt hose. We give you the option to purchase them in the same tartan material as your kilt.


The Fly Plaid is the piece of cloth worn over the left shoulder that resembles a cape.  If you are considering a fly plaid, it is BEST purchased at the same time as your kilt, so it can be cut from the same bolt of cloth.  This way, there will be no issues with dye lots or different colors used in the fly plaid and the kilt.



4 clip Kilt Hanger


If you've ever tried to hang a heavy kilt on a 2 clip plastic hanger, you know they can slip off.  Solve that problem by using the same professional grade hanger we use in our store.

  • Product Description

    Due to the popularity of our American Heritage tartan and our 5 yard kilts, we've started offering PRE-MADE kilts in our American Heritage 16 oz wool tartan!  $289.99 for a 5 yard wool kilt, available immediately, with $2.99 shipping!

    Our 5 Yard Wool kilt is a fantastic value for a “mid level” kilt.  This kilt, like our 8 yard models, uses the finest 16 oz wool cloth woven in the UK.  Our 5 Yard Wool kilt is a great option for those who want a wool kilt, but don’t want to invest in a full 8 Yard Kilt.  It is also a wonderful option for those looking for a lower yardage kilt for it's reduced weight during summer wear.  It will look good in both a casual setting, like festivals or the pub, and a formal setting, like a wedding.

    Due to the larger range of sizes each of our In Stock 5 Yard kilt fits, we have intentionally left the hip strap off of this model.

    Measuring for your kilt: Detailed measuring instructions can be found in the "Measuring Instructions" tab below this text.

  • Measuring Instructions


    A Traditional kilt is worn higher than your pants, just above the belly button (for larger customers, just above the WIDEST part of your belly).  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 your HIP measurement. In most cases, it's about 4-6 inches larger than the waist measurement.



    If possible, it’s best to take this measurement wearing shorts and a form fitting 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 24" 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… just above the belly button.


    If the 24" 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 24" 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.

    Love my American Heritage Kilt  Jay
    This is the first kilt I purchased for myself. I love it. I have worn it a lot and always get complements.

    I really love being able to explain the tartan and what it stands for. This should be THE OFFICIAL tartan of the US in my opinion.

    I love the quality and weight. It just feels great and I am proud to wear it.

    Love my "American Heritage" kilt  Seth
    I was excited to get my kilt so quickly (because it is designed to fit a range of waist sizes)! It wears very well and looks great when paired with jacket, vest, and tie for work. Although my coworkers do not have experience with many kilt wearers in East TX, they were complimentary of the professional look! (Posted on 11/18/2016)
    Excellent!  Dusty Boots
    I made the leap and bought the American Heritage in 5yd wool as my first kilt. The quality and attention to detail is excellent. I get many compliments and the more subtle tartan is very versatile. (Posted on 9/13/2016)
    Excellent quality  JPCahill
    This is a review of the 5 yard, American Heritage tartan, off-the-rack kilt. I find myself somewhat astonished to be writing a rave review.

    I confess to being something of a kilt snob. I.e., if it's not 8 or 9 yards of heavy wool and made-to-measure it can't possibly be any good. Well, this one is. The cloth is good quality wool, the tailoring is good and tight, the fit is as advertized. The tartan is a beautiful one. It's brighter and livelier in the sunlight than the pictures on the website shows.

    One more thing that hadn't occurred to me when I purchased: because a 5 yard kilt is a better balanced garment it's a tad more comfortable than my 8 or 9 yard traditionally tailored kilts.

    All-in-all, an excellent job. I'd recommend it to anyone. (Posted on 6/3/2016)
