These are simply some of the finest kilts in the world! Premium wool, heirloom-quality kilts, tailor-made in Scotland just for you.

Woven and crafted in Scotland by House of Edgar, one of Scotland’s premier woolen mills and kilt makers.

Why Medium Weight?
While there are more than 1,000 tartans to choose from, not all tartans are available in all weights. We work with 8 different woolen mills to bring you the largest possible selection. This kilt is made from medium-weight 100% premium wool tartan, which is awesome, because we believe medium weight makes for the best kilt. Heavy weight is more durable, but it is heavy. Light weight is a good option if you live in a hot climate, or simply if you are a human furnace. So why medium weight? It’s the perfect middle road. Comfortable, durable, holds nice crisp pleats, and swished just right when you stroll around the Highland games.
Pleat to Sett vs. Pleat to Stripe
Pleat to sett — Each pleat is positioned so that the pattern (sett) appears to continue through the pleated portion of the kilt. This is the standard default pleating method. Probably 90% of the kilts we make are Pleat to Sett.
Pleat to stripe — A prominent stripe in the pattern is chosen, and that stripe is centered down the middle of each pleat. This is a traditional military style, and can look very nice. Some tartans just don’t look good pleated to stripe however. If you choose this option we will let you know if it can’t (or shouldn’t) be done.
- Have someone help you. If you bend even a little while trying to do it yourself, the measurements will change.
- Measure comfortably around your middle, at your navel (belly button). This is your kilt waist. If you have a bit more around the middle than you might like to have (like I do), you may want to measure a little higher than the navel to get over the crest of the “beer gut”. The higher waist will help your kilt stay up where it belongs.
- Measure around your hips at the fullest point (usually 6-8 inches below the kilt waist).
- Measure from your kilt waist to about the middle of the knee.
