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.

- Heck ya Eric
Price Value QualityNow, I’m writing this a couple days after getting my a$$ kicked by Ian and I’m sipping on a dram or three so take this into account please. Just before the storm I got my sixth casual kilt from USAKilts. Sixth.. Currently I’m wearing my new arrival; the Fraser hunting. And all the standard qualities are there. It’s color is great, the sizing and fit spot on as usual. All my older kilts have softened and feel even better after multiple uses. No frays, no tearing and the Velcro stays strong.

- Amazing quality Fast Fast Fast! German Heritage casual masterpiece
Price Value QualityReceived my German Heritage casual kilt after only 11 days. It is the perfect kilt for me, light weight and great fit. I love the double belt loops, the smaller 1.5" loops allows me to use a belt I can pull tight. Did I mention the colors of the PV material are amazing, love it. Ordered this kilt in August, love it so much I just another casual kilt for September, a Gordon Modern. (Posted on 9/7/2022)
