HOW TO BUY A KILT ONLINE

Buying an outfit is a special experience. A kilt will last you a lifetime and so it is a big decision on what you want to go for. If you are unable to go into one of our stores, we have a simple process to follow online and one of our expert members of staff will be in touch with you to ensure that you have a seamless experience from start to finish.

How do I choose my tartan?

The first step is always to choose the tartan, the kilt is the basis of your full outfit and the other decisions are easier to make once this has been decided. You can go for your clan tartan or simply choose your favourite; have a look through our Tartan Finder to find your chosen tartan. We understand that this is an important decision, so you can order a Tartan Sample in order to better visualise what your kilt will look like.

HOW DO I MEASURE MY OWN KILT

We recommend for someone to help you measure for your kilt, and remember that the measurements will be different to your usual trouser measurements. Remove any bulky clothing and items from your pockets, stand up straight and relax.

Waist Measurement: Ensure that you are using tape measure for your body, and wrap it round your natural waist; this should be round the naval. This should be quite a tight measurement, as you do not want the kilt to fall down. The kilt sits a lot higher than your trousers, so this measurement will most likely be bigger than your trouser measurement. It is tempting to breathe in at this point, so double check your measurement a couple of times to make sure that it is correct.

Length Measurement: Stand with your feet together, and keep looking forward when this measurement is being taken - if you look down or bend your knees the measurement will be incorrect. Measure from the navel to just over the top of the kneecap: the kilt should just overlap the top of your kneecap and sit in the crease of the back of your knee. It is important that you also provide us with your height, as this will mean we will be able to tell if the measurements you have taken seem correct.

Seat Measurement: The next measurement is only required when you are purchasing a kilt. This is the seat measurement, which is for the third buckle of your kilt and a measurement of the widest part of your hips. Stand with your feet together, and cross your arms over so that they are not in the way of the tape measure. Take a loose measurement around the widest part of your hips ensuring that you have a bit of room to allow the kilt to swing.
