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. 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.

  • 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.

    It's very hard to find an approved Campbell tartan, but USAKilts has it and they made me an excellent kilt for a reasonable price. Colors are right on, nice pleating to the stripe, good top stitching at hips, belt loops were matched so well you can't see them, nice fringe on apron, strap leather is just the right thickness, Best of all, it fits well and swings nicely.

    Recieved my kilt very promptly and was quite pleased with the quality of materials and craftsmanship. Having lived in the UK for quite a long time, this was my first American made kilt and the quality was right on par with the Scottish kilts I have. I did get a bit spoiled by being able to buy so close to the source, so it wasn't as inexpensive as I could have found there, but for the qulaity it was a fair price. (Posted on 10/14/2014)

    Recently received my semi trad in Stewart hunting. The fabric is beautiful, plenty of heft for a good swish. The workmanship is beautiful, fantastic sewing job. I paid the rush fee, and had my order at my door inside of two weeks. The people are totally professional and great to deal with. All in all, could not be more pleased!! (Posted on 10/14/2014)

    This is the first time I have had any issues with USA Kilts, and the first time I used the rush service. (received sooner than promised). They would not do Farquarharson ploy viscose pleated to the set, and the hemming was not as excellent as on previous orders from USA Kilts. That said, it is still and excellent value and I will reorder poly viscose kilts from USA KIlts if they can deliver the pleating and tartan needed. (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!
