Celtic Artisan Guarantee

We guarantee that every highland wear product USA Kilts sells is proudly made in America, Scotland, England, Ireland or Wales. By purchasing this product, you are supporting skilled Celtic artisans. Your choice honors the heritage you embrace and preserves it for future generations.


 

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.

 
 
 

The Fly Plaid is the piece of cloth worn over the left shoulder that resembles a cape.  If you are considering a fly plaid, it is BEST purchased at the same time as your kilt, so it can be cut from the same bolt of cloth.  This way, there will be no issues with dye lots or different colors used in the fly plaid and the 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.

  • Product Description

    Do you want a heavy wool kilt, but prefer solid colors or tweeds? Are you looking for a fashion forward way to express your heritage? Check out our Tweed Kilts!


    This model kilt is constructed from 5 yards (bigger guys may use 6 yards) of the finest worsted wool and tweed woven in the UK. Each kilt is individually tailored to the measurements provided to insure a proper fit. It features a tapered and fringed front apron, approximately 18-28 pleats (.9 to 1" wide) and a 3 buckle closure system. It also comes with 2 belt loops (4 inches tall) on the back of the kilt to accommodate a traditional kilt belt. These solid kilts are for the truly adventurous and fashion forward among us.


    How about a solid kilt with matching jacket and vest to create a whole outfit?  See our Tweed Jackets and Vests in the Jackets category.


    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.

  • Tweeds

  • 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.

    I'm going on two years with this kilt and it still receives positive comments almost every time I wear it.

    Everything fans of USA's 5 yard woll kilt have to say applies equally to their tweed offering. The tailoring is spot on with belt loops and buckle keepers matching the tweed pattern perfectly. The pleating is even and crisp and the tapering at the fell is well executed. As for the cloth itself, mine happens to be the 16oz. Lochcarron Poacher, it's a slightly open weave, so it wears as well in the summer as the winter.
    The embossed leather straps are a great addition.

    Now, here's the real bonus—you're constantly asked "what tartan is that?" It gives you a chance to explain a bit of the history of tweeds and the fact that they are every bit as Scottish as the various clan tartans and from the very same mills.

    Well done, Rocky. (Posted on 10/14/2014)

    Got a matching vest / kilt for my birthday last June. Outstanding workmanship and materials. Lots on complements. This is one of my favorites to date.

    Thanks for making sure the pattern matches on the top and bottom. Great attention to detail. (Posted on 10/14/2014)

  • Fun Facts

  • Availability

When you think modern kilt or urban kilt, or even fashion kilt, chances are you have a picture of a tweed kilt in your mind. Actually, the solid color kilt is not new at all. It has been around for at least one hundred and fifty years. You can find images of Victorians sporting them. That said, if you want to make your highland dress sleek and elegant, a custom tweed kilt is a great option. Wool tweed kilts are often paired with matching suit jackets and vests to create what’s called the Highland suit or Scottish kilt suit. You may choose to wear a tartan tie with the tweed kilt set to add a spark of interest as well as family colors. Tweed kilt suits work great with both black and brown leather accessories. Tweeds can also make for a great, sporty heavy kilt -- something to wear on a date or to the pub as casual kilt wear. USA Kilts has hundreds of tweeds to choose from for your kilt, tweed jacket, tweed vest and other accessories.
