    Extras for my Kilt Outfit

    Kilt Finish Options

    Super Machine Finish:

    This kilt is 60% handmade and machined internally and is reinforced around the buckles, straps and belt loops. Finally all checked and hand finished and super pressed to keep the pleats nice and sharp, this is the kilt finish we use for all pipe bands and for the Royal Regiment of Scotland and all MOD. The kilt is cut for growth, adjustable 11/2 inches up and down(e.g. if you measure 33”, the kilt will go down to 311/2 – 341/2), it can be altered over the years a few inches by unstitching buckles and straps & repositioning them.

    Super Hand Finish:

    This kilt is 100% traditionally hand cut and made by kiltmakers who are passionate about their work and have over 25 years of experience, they take about a day and a half to two days to make a kilt, with about 7000 hand stitches per kilt. At the back of the top of the kilt you will see tight stitch work. The stitching of the buckles and straps are all reinforced for extra strength. These kiltmakers are a lot older with over 20 or 25 years of experience in the art of kiltmaking. The kilt is cut for growth, adjustable 11/2 inches up and down(e.g. if you measure 33”, the kilt will go down to 311/2 – 341/2 , it can be altered over the years a few inches by unstitching buckles and straps & repositioning them. This kilt can also be stripped down and remade entirely.

    Sett of the Kilt

    All kilts are made normal sett, this is where the pleats are set to repeat the tartan ( front and back of the kilt is the same, this is the most common option and about 80% of people will go for this).

    Or we can make it regimental sett, which is where a predominant centre line in the tartan is repeated on every pleat on the back of the kilt. Please add in the comments section if you would prefer to go with this sett and which line to set it to. 

    We can also do a box pleat at £200 extra
