Scottish Kilt - 8 Yard Heavyweight(16 oz.) Rare Tartans
Enjoy the finest-quality kilt, with heavyweight tartan cloth and all the right details. The tartans available with this kilt come from Lochcarron's Rare tartans list.
Lochcarron's 16 oz tartan cloth, their Strome line, has a richer look and a more textured feel than the lighter fabrics. It also offers the longevity, weight, and swing desired by pipe bands.
The tartan cloth is woven in Scotland at Lochcarron mills, and the kilts are custom made in Scotland and Canada. Because kilts are made to measure, they generally take 5 - 7 weeks for delivery.

How to Measure -
Waist Measurement Have someone else measure around your waist at a point 1" above your navel. The tape should be tight for this measurement because this fit will need to support the weight of the kilt. (Remember that kilts are worn higher than pants. Taking this measurement is extremely important.)
Seat Measurement Have someone else measure around the widest part of your hips/seat. The tape should be a little loose for this measurement because this fit will need to accommodate bending and sitting.
Overall Kilt Length Have someone else measure from 1" above your navel to the desired kilt length. Most people want the kilt to fall mid-knee. The distance can be measured in a standing position, or it can be taken from the top of the navel to the floor in a kneeling position. Please select tartan and measurements below -
