The Casual Kilt is a really nice looking kilt! If you want a nice looking kilt without spending as much money this is a great option.
Premium Wool Casual Kilts
Nearly identical in appearance to the more expensive formal kilts, casual kilts are machine stitched instead of hand stitched (less traditional, but in our opinion actually more durable), and made with less tartan. The average casual kilt is made from 4-5 yards of fabric compared to 8-9 yards in a formal kilt. The end result is a kilt with pleats that are shallower and wider, but still looks great. Because we work with 8 different woolen mills to bring you the largest selection, the kilts below are divided based on each supplier's price and availability. This is a special order item, so please allow 6-12 weeks for delivery.
Poly/Viscose Casual Kilts
Whether you’re allergic to wool, or just want a great looking kilt for less, our 100% synthetic, poly/viscose kilts are a great way to go! To the untrained eye our poly/viscose tartan is nearly indistinguishable from expensive 100% wool. Our poly/viscose kilts are made in Scotland and are constructed just like their premium wool counterparts. They aren’t woven with a kilting selvedge so the kilts will be hemmed. Available in about 60 tartans. This is a special order item, so please allow 6-12 weeks for delivery.
(These instructions are for all casual kilts and should also be listed on all the casual kilt pages)
1) Measure your waist size in inches at the navel (belly button). This is the traditional kilt waist. Alternatively, many men prefer to wear their Casual Kilts at the pants waist. If this is what you choose, then measure comfortably around your waist where the top of your pants rest. Or, If you intend to wear your kilt mostly for formal occasions, and you have a bit more around the middle than you might like to have, you may want to measure a little higher than the navel to get over the crest of the "beer gut". The higher waist is more formal, but it will help your kilt stay up where it belongs.
2) Measure around your hips at the fullest point (usually 6-8 inches below the waist).
3) Measure from your waist (kilt waist or pants waist accordingly) to about the middle of the knee. This is usually best done with some help because if you bend over even a bit, your measurement will not be correct.
4) Your height.
