This is a PV Mini kilt made in the Scruffy Wallace tartan. The tartan was designed by Scruffy Wallace, formerly of Dropkick Murphy's and Rocky Roeger of USA Kilts, Inc. and is intended for anyone to wear. It was inspired by two tartans that Scruffy wears: the Sutherland Highlanders tartan (aka Black Watch Ancient) that Scruffy wore during his service in the Calgary Highlanders, a sister regiment of the Sutherland Highlanders, from 1987 through 1996 (10th Battalion, CEF); and by his family tartan, Wallace. The muted colour scheme was chosen to reflect the gritty reality of life on the road with his band.
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 name "Scruffy Wallace Tartan" and the tartan pattern itself are both ©2011. They may not be reproduced anywhere without prior written consent.
Our mini kilt is designed to be worn at "low waist" (where you wear your jeans). This is where the top of your kilt will sit.
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.
Just relax and stand "at ease". When measuring, the tape measure should be snug – as snug as you will be wearing the kilt. Use that measurement for the waist.
This measurement is taken around the very widest part of your rear end. This measurement should be taken a bit loosely.
Standing with feet about 8" to 10" apart, measure around the widest area of your thighs. Measure both thighs together, not individually.
This is measured down the side of your body from the top of where the kilt will sit (i.e. top of your jeans) straight down to about 3" above the knee. 15" is an average length for a 5' 4" woman, wearing the kilt at her low waist). Any measurement shorter than this may be a bit "revealing" when you bend at the waist! As a reference point, here are some heights and mini kilt lengths:
If you're 4' 8" to 5' 2", the length will be about 14" to 15.5. If you're 5' 3" to 5' 6", the length will be about 15" to 16.5". If you're 5' 7" to 5' 9", the length will be about 16" to 17". If you're 5' 10"; to 6', the length will be about 17" to 18.5".

- I LOVE my Scruffy Wallace PV Mini Kilt!!! Gretchen
Value Quality PriceI just began practicing to throw in Scottish Highland Games. Couldn't quite prove my clan. But, as a fan of Dropkick Murphys and a card carrying member of the Red Sox Nation, I couldn't think of a more appropriate tartan for me. I have practiced in the kilt, I have had a casual movie/dinner night in my kilt. It is comfy. It is solid. It stays where it should. People (other than me) remark at the quality. The pleating is PERFECT. I will be back!! (Posted on 10/14/2014)
