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.

- Incredible kilt, incredible experience RobStark
Quality Price ValueWell what can I say? Try finding better kiltmakers with a greater value to price ratio, I dare you. My kilt is an absolute gem. Not only does it fit like a charm (thanks Blue) but the whole costumer service around it has blown me away! Both Ian and Gilian answered my endless list of questions with truly extensive answers. I had to scroll to read them. I ordered from Germany so I asked them the send the kilt on a specific day to a hotel where a friend of mine stayed. All of those inquiries where done with the highest level of assistance and understanding for my situation. On top of that did I realise that I wanted a pleating to the stripe with my MacGregor red, but I forgot to mention it. Guess what, Blue magically pleated it to the stripe. You guys got a costumer for life. (Posted on 11/26/2023)

Price Value QualityThe kilt that I had purchased was the first I have from USA Kilts. The other 16 I had purchased from a didn't source. I was excited because it is the American Dream Tartan, which is beautiful. When I finally received my Causal Kilt Amer. Dream I was slightly disappointed. The reason being was the price. But again that was compared to the other source. I did have some reservations, even from my wife. But ultimately the quality is good, the Causal kilt is definitely good for hot desert weather here in Idaho. I do wish there was a bit more bang for your buck but overall it is a good kilt to for starters and hot weather! (Posted on 8/24/2023)

Price Value QualityFor all the golfers out there, I played golf the other day in 112 degrees with the German Heritage kilt, it held up and was cooler than wearing shorts! I even kept the Sporran on throughout the entire round, didn’t get in the way at all. I plan on wearing more pv’s for future rounds. Thanks team USAKilts! (Posted on 7/16/2023)

- Quite Pleased - The jeans of kilts Don
Price Value QualityOK, so it has taken a year to get around to reviewing this kilt. I have had other PV kilts and was not pleased with them. Ordered this one in hopes a better quality of PV was used. My hopes were definitely met. Fabric is much higher quality, more comfortable, and far less stiff than other PV kilts I have purchased. Construction is top notch and fit is great. I consider it my jeans for around the house, working in the yard and general working around the place. Quite suitable for hiking and rough conditions that would take a toll on wool kilts. That said, this kilt has a great appearance and feel is more than worth the money for casual wear. The Velcro closures are much higher quality and stronger than on other kilts of this type I have purchased. However, I would suggest that USAKilts offer a 2 buckle option at an extra charge.
