Whether you are allergic to wool, or just want a great looking tartan for less than premium wool, our OUTLANDER synthetic blend is a great way to go! Our Poly/Viscose Tartan is hard wearing and cool to wear. To the untrained eye it is nearly indistinguishable from expensive 100% wool tartan. The OUTLANDER tartans are woven as a hopsack plain weave with a wash only, to give it that natural look. The weight of the fabric is 12oz, with a kilting selvedge. The tartan is woven in the UK, and each OUTLANDER poly/viscose Great Kilt is custom-made by us in the USA.
Just like in OUTLANDER: The Series, the Great Kilt is traditionally pleated each time you wear it. Pleating instructions will be included with your kilt (you can also download them here). Basically, you lay your kilt out on clean ground, the floor, or a bed. Pull fabric into pleats until it is nearly all used, leaving just enough to wrap around you. Then the whole works is held around you with your belt.
If you don't want to pleat your kilt yourself, we offer Cheater Pleats™ as a convenient option. If you choose Cheater Pleats™, we'll pleat the kilt for you, and stitch in a hidden waistband to hold it together. Once you belt it on, no one will know you didn't pleat it yourself! Our standard options are pleat-to-sette, lightly ironed. If you would like different cheater pleat options, choose the "Custom" option, and add the Cheater Pleats™ product to your order in addition to your kilt.
NOTE — We ask for size information to be sure that your kilt will fit you correctly, but we do not pleat the kilt for you unless you select Cheater Pleats™ as an option.
Special order. Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery. We try to keep the OUTLANDER tartans in stock at all times, but if the tartan you have chosen is temporarily out of stock, you may need to wait up to 8 weeks for delivery. We will contact you if we expect any delays.
A 4 yard kilt will fit up to about a 34 inch waist.
A 5 yard kilt will fit up to about a 44 inch waist.
A 6 yard kilt will fit up to about a 54 inch waist.
(Larger kilts are available. Please contact us.)
Depending on waist size, pleats will vary between one and two inches wide (pleats will get wider as waist size increases). If your waist size is close to one of the limits above, consider the next size larger if you want deeper pleats or pleats closer together.
How to measure for your OUTLANDER Great Kilt:
1) Kilt Waist: Measure your waist size in inches at your actual waist, where you usually wear your pants. This measurement will probably be 2-4 inches larger than your pants size.
2) Kilt Length: Measure from your waist to about the middle of the knee. Have someone help you! If you bend even a little while trying to do it yourself, the measurement will be wrong.
Note — For a Great Kilt, the length measurement is only really important if you are adding Cheater Pleats™. But the form above asks for it regardless, so you might as well do it right! If you pleat the kilt yourself, you can adjust the length as needed once you belt it on.
