Hand crafted to your measurements by skilled kiltmakers in Scotland. Made from heavy weight (15/16 oz.) premium wool tartan, woven in Scotland.
Heavy weight tartan makes a nice kilt, especially for durability and crisp pleats. A heavy weight kilt can tend to be hot though, if you live in a warm climate.
The Casual Kilt is a really nice looking kilt! It's also quite a bit less expensive than a formal kilt. You save money because it's made with less fabric. Made with 45 yds of tartan (vs. 8-9 yds in a formal kilt). The pleats are machine stitched, and a bit shallower and wider than those of a formal kilt.
The heavy weight tartan is more durable than any of the other tartans. If you are a member of a pipes & drums band, you may want to check with your quartermaster for the details of the weight, tartan and pleat option used in your band before ordering. (Most bands wear heavy weight formal kilts.)
While there are more than 1,000 tartans to choose from, not all tartans are available in heavy weight. We work with 8 different woolen mills to bring you the largest possible selection. If your tartan is available in medium weight, we generally recommend this weight, but the decision is yours.
Our goal is to make the ordering of your kilt as stress free and enjoyable as possible, and we look forward to handling your order. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
