As with all our kilts, this garment is made in Scotland by our own trained kilt makers and can either be hand made or machine made. They are fully canvas lined with three buckles to ensure an excellent fit. Our kilts are made from 8 yards 16oz worsted wool, available in the full range of tartans from all the mills. Surcharges: Please note that for larger seat sizes of 46 inches and above a supplement of $45.00 and seat sizes 56 inches and above a supplement of $90.00 will apply to your orders. Custom orders cannot be canceled once fabric has been cut.
Kilt pin and sporran sold separately.
- Waist (A): measure firmly around waist at navel (belly button) height.
- Seat (B): measure loosely around the largest part of the seat area.
- Kilt Length (C): measure from navel height to the top of the knee. As a guide, your kilt length is usually about one third of your overall height.
- Height (D): provide your height (without shoes) in feet and inches.
Sett or Stripe
The repeating pattern in a tartan means that two quite distinct appearances can be had to the rear of a kilt, depending on how it is pleated. Kilts can be pleated either to the sett, so that the tartan pattern is preserved in the pleating, or else to the stripe, so that the same vertical line is centered on each pleat.Traditionally civilian kilts were pleated to the sett, and military to the stripe. But the choice is yours.

Kilt is spectacular

The kilt I received is expertly made - I checked it carefully for any sort of sewing errors or misalignments and couldn't find any. Wears perfectly and I'm told with just the right swing!
Great Service and the obviously Incredible Work

I just received my completed kilt in the mail last weekend, so I wanted to write and thank you so much for both your great service and the obviously incredible work that went into that kilt. I think I must have just stared at it agape for at least five minutes when I first took it out of the box, and it truly looks like something I’ll be proud to wear at my wedding.
I don’t know if you have any means of passing on my gratitude and praise to the kilt-makers themselves, but please let them know that they are exemplars of a prestigious and worthy tradition. Even though my Scottish blood is thoroughly diluted by now, and I’ve only had a chance to go “home” once in my life thus far, I think I genuinely felt a swoon from my heritage when I put it on.
You can rest assured that I will be recommending your services to everyone I know, and I’ll make sure to send you a picture of my completed outfit when I have it all put together. With that, best wishes to you and yours, and many, many thanks.

Couldn't be more pleased with this purchase. High quality construction and material. It took a little longer than expected (hence no 5 stars) but I'd recommend Scottish Lion to friends. Love my family kilt.
