"In Stock" Casual kilts are available in limited tartans, in limited sizes and will ship out within 24 hours. In the rare instance something is out of stock when the order is placed, we'll let you know immediately.
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.

- Amazing quality and service Alex
Value Quality PriceI don't even know where to begin. I ordered an in-stock American Heritage Casual Kilt based on my current measurements. Following their guide if you're honest with your body composition, USA Kilts leaves no room for error. It worked out perfectly. My kilt is a perfect size and already goes well with some sweaters in my wardrobe for the colder months. It also washed very well based on the washing instructions. Definitely one of the highest quality garments I have ever purchased. I will 100% be going to USA Kilts for all of my kilt purchases. I am hoping to get into a 5 yard or 8 yard soon.

- Great Toss-around / Every Day Dihce
Price Value QualityThis is the first kilt purchased from USA Kilts and it has very quickly become the favorite in my collection. Looking forward to wearing it more in the summer. Lighter fabric will make for easy breezy days at the soccer fields watching my kids play (Posted on 2/7/2023)
- Excellent Ts
Price Value QualityI have a semi traditional already and grabbed this casual for a particular event. Not talking down my semi traditional but honestly for something that is half the price it’s amazing. You don’t get the buckles but the Velcro for me is in someways nicer because I can tighten it down easier than dealing with the buckles. Especially true if your bigger waisted I think. If your wearing a kilt belt nobody but kilt enthusiasts will even notice the difference. Bottom line buy yourself one you will not regret it (Posted on 2/2/2023)

- Excellent kilt Amos
Quality Price ValueThe quality and care that went into it is plainly visible. It is crisp and perfectly pleated. The PV fabric holds the pleats great. I have taken several car rides in it and it still looks mint. The Velcro fasteners are comfortable and convenient. I’m going to get a lot of use out of this kilt for sure. Highly recommend (Posted on 8/23/2022)
- Finally an American Heritage tartan kilt River
Quality Price ValueI’ve actually been ordering a bit too large and the in stock kilts were not available in that size. So, this is my third in-stock casual kilt. The tartan is amazing and pairs well with a lot of clothing. The build is just as sturdy and comfortable as my other two casual kilts in Firefighter Memorial and Kilts & Culture tartans. I plan on ordering one more in-stock kilt before moving on and ordering more casuals for day-to-day wear and even working out in - that’s how much I love wearing them! They’re amazingly built and comfortable, definitely recommend. (Posted on 6/11/2022)
