NOTE As of January
2010, Products, prices, and options are no longer being updated on this

Our Economy Kilts are great
for athletes, first-time buyers, those on a budget, or as an extra kilt
to save wear and tear on your nicer kilts. Yet they are nice enough that
we have many customers use them for weddings and other formal occasions.
These are good looking
kilts, especially for the price. They are made from 4-6 yds (depending
on waist size) of our Homespun
tartan, and pleated in the back just like more expensive kilts. The machine-stitched
pleats are each about 1" wide, and 3-4" deep. They are fully
lined with three straps and buckles and belt loops.
HOWEVER, please keep in mind
that the Economy Kilt (both Stock and Special-Order) is NOT a custom tailored
kilt, so it will most likely not fit as if it was tailored for you. The
waist and hip size is about the same. If your hip measurement is more
than 4 inches larger than your waist, then the kilt will not fit as well
as it should. If this is unacceptable, please purchase a Casual Kilt or
Formal Kilt, either of which will be tailored to your exact specifications.

Measure for Your Kilt:
Measure your waist size in inches at the navel (belly button). This
is the traditional kilt waist.
Alternatively, for a more casual look, many men prefer to wear their
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
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.
