Premium New World Celt 16oz Wool Tartan Kilt
How to measure for a kilt
For Men's or Women's Kilts
Follow the following guide based on measuring from the video:
Traditional Tartan Kilts:
The size stated on each kilt is the smallest setting on the buckle straps (a size 36 adjusts from a 36 up to just under a 40). Depending on where you want the buckle to end on your waist will determine your size. A good rule of thumb to follow is to go down 2 inches from your measured waist size. That will put you in the middle of the buckle straps (i.e. 40 measured would order a 38).
These apply to all traditional kilst with the exception of the made in Scotland.
If you follow our measuring video in the videos section below, you will get a kilt that fits. However, if for whatever reason it does not, UT Kilts has the best and easiest return policy.
How to measure for a kilt with out measuring the waist.
Use this when giving a gift or other situation where you are not able to measure their waist.
GOOD RULE OF THUMB IN SIZING:
When you are measuring a pair of pants to determine sizing, it should be around 3-4 inches bigger than what the jeans size says (some sizes closer to 30 are only 2 inches bigger). You should only use this option as a last resort if personally measuring the person is not possible. DO NOT USE THIS OPTION IF YOU CAN MEASURE YOURSELF. Save yourself the time and just do it right the first time!
If for some reason you are just not able to measure anything, you can make a good guess at which size they would need. I would go up one sizes if guessing, i.e. 40 will go to a 42 size kilt. This is only a guess and does not replace at least trying to measure if possible.

This is a universal tartan. That means it does not have any clan or other affiliation. You do not need to have any special historical or ancestral connection to wear it. From the Designer: "Tartan designed by Michael S Dunlap and unveiled at the 2008 Dunedin Highland Games in Dunedin, Florida. The black background is the melting pot of the new world. The sett starts and ends with the colors of the flags of the Old Seven Celtic nations; with the center red, white, and blue representing the New Celtic Nations of the USA, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia."

Sizing / Measuring
It is extremely important you follow our measuring video and order the size you need based on your measurement, not pants size. All of men's pants are labeled 2-4 inches smaller than what they actually measure. Please see our measuring video below or checkout or measuring page here.
The size that you choose for your order will be the smallest setting on the buckle straps (i.e. a size 36 adjusts from a 36 up to just under a 39.5). Depending on where you want the buckle to end on your waist will determine your size. A good rule of thumb to follow is to go down 1-2 inches from your measured waist size. That will put you in the middle of the buckle straps (i.e. 39 or 40 measured would order a 38).
You MUST measure in order to get the correct size. Please visit our measuring section of the website to determine which size is best for you. DO NOT use your pants or jeans size to determine your kilt size.
