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".

 

For more detailed instructions, open the "Measuring Instructions" tab under the product description or watch our video on how to measure by the main product image.

 
 
 

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.

 
 
 

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 another person kneel at your side with the tape measure. They will put the "0" end of the tape measure on the SIDE of your body at the top of where you took your waist measurement (likely just above your "love handles").  Measure from that point down the side of your body to the middle of your knee, which is where the bottom of the kilt will be. That distance will be your kilt's length.

 

For more detailed instructions & alternative ways to measure length, open the "Measuring Instructions" tab under the product description or watch our video on how to measure by the main product image.

 
 
 
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.

 
 
 

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.

    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.

  • Measuring Instructions

    Waist


    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.

     



    Hip

    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.

     



    Length

    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.

    Kilt that won't break bank  Ian
    Price

    Quality
    This is a great kilt if you don't want to break the bank. At about half the price of a wool 8-yard kilt, you can have all the joy of wearing a kilt without the worry of damaging it. I like to wear my semi-trad to the bar or when I smoke cigars. If I spill something, this goes straight into the wash and comes out like new. Great for beginners too who are wary about the high price point of other kilts. Wholeheartedly recommend! (Posted on 10/14/2014)

    I've worn my PV semi-traditional kilt (in the Law Enforcement Officers' Memorial Tartan) for everything from casual gatherings to a wedding, and it looked great each time. The quality is very good, the fit was just what I ordered, and the kilt is holding up well. Overall, I'm very pleased with it, and expect to order another (in a different tartan) before too long.

    I am not one for ordering clothing from the internet, sizing issues. Ordered my Army Tartan Semi Traditional Kilt on Dec 21, 2012 received Feb 1, 2013. Was hoping to get my kilt by Feb 18th my 60th birthday. Tried it on last night and all I can say is Great Workmanship!!!!!! I served in the Army for 29 years and I will wear this kilt with pride.

    I own several kilts, from an 8 yard woolen traditional as well as a utility kilt and a sport kilt. Being rather active in several local various Scots/Irish/Celtic associations, I was looking for something with the look and feel of an 8 yard traditional in a lighter, washable fabric, preferably in time for the St. Patrick's day festivities. Marching in a parade in Birmingham, Alabama in the hot humid spring time wearing 8 yards of 13 oz wool can be very uncomfortable.

    I was looking for a kilt In which I could easily march in a parade, accessorize and then attend a formal St. Patrick's dinner, and then dress down and wear to a smoke filled pub.

    This kilt will fit the bill perfectly. The workmanship and look of an 8 yard traditional, with none of the worry. Also, the fabric is of great quality, unlike some sports kilts that can use fabric that's almost paper thin and won't hold a pleat well.

    I bought 2 and am glad I did. (Posted on 10/14/2014)

    Anderson Tartan. I just received my kilt in the mail this morning. I was concerned about the fit and my measuring ability's being this is my first kilt, but it fit perfect. It is heavy enough to not feel like it will blow off, but light enough where it will be comfortable in the Georgia summer heat. Every time I had a question they were super helpful when i called. I definately plan on ordering more. (Posted on 10/14/2014)

    My Scott Weathered fits great and don't think the ladies didn't notice (my girlfriend noticed that they noticed, potential hazard there). The construction is fantastic, the colors are incredible. I can dress it up for black tie just as easily as pulling on a t-shirt and heading to a pub. I'm already planning my next purchase from USA Kilts... (Posted on 10/14/2014)

    I own several kilts from other kilt makers, but my new Semi-Traditional from USA Kilts is much nicer than any of them! The fabric is high quality, the craftsmanship is exceptional, and the pleats just plain look better than all the rest. I chose the Scruffy Wallace tartan and really love the colors (and so do the ladies). I will definitely order another semi-traditional in a different tartan. (Posted on 10/14/2014)

The original multi-purpose kilt. USA Kilts’ semi traditional kilt is designed to be your go-to for any kilted occasion. Unlike our other PV fabric kilt, the Casual, this lightweight kilt has a more traditional design and feel to it. That’s because we use the exact same tailoring techniques that we use for our 5-yard wool kilts. In other words, even though the “semi-trad” is made of modern machine washable cloth, it is constructed in the traditional way with traditional details: knife pleats, real leather straps and buckles, sporran chain loops, apron fringe, and the correct drop from your true waist to your knee. You could call the Semi Traditional a semi formal kilt, but really it’s a true summer dress kilt. You can wear it with boots and a t-shirt or a Prince Charlie and tie even in the summer. We also highly recommend it if you are in need of a sharp-looking hypoallergenic kilt or stain resistant kilt. There’s no more flexible kilt for the price!
