The Great Kilt

The exact origin of how the kilt we know today was created has been disputed for decades, but what is known is that it is derived from the Féileadh Mór or Great Kilt. The great kilt was a garment worn by highland men, starting as far back as (according to historical records) the late 16th century but was probably worn for quite some time before then. Vastly different from the kilts we know today, the great kilt would have been made from 18 feet of material that a highlander would fold into pleats then wrapped around his waist with the excess material then draped over the chest and shoulder.
