Welsh Casual Kilts (Cilts)
(In the Welsh language, Kilt is spelled Cilt.) There is no evidence that
the Welsh wore kilts historically. Welsh tartans and Welsh kilts have been
created in recent times as a great way for you to honor your Welsh heritage.
The Casual Kilt is a great option if you want a nice looking kilt without
spending as much money. Nearly identical in appearance to our Formal Kilts,
Casual Kilts are machine stitched instead of hand stitched (less traditional,
but in our opinion actually more durable), and made with less tartan. The
average Casual Kilt is made from 5-6 yards of fabric compared to 8-9 yards
in a Formal Kilt. The end result is a kilt with pleats that are shallower
and wider, but still looks great. With less tartan, a casual kilt is lighter
and more comfortable for all day wear. Made to order in Wales. Please allow
6-12 weeks for delivery.
Made from medium weight 12/13oz premium wool tartan. The Casual
Kilt is a great option if you want a nice looking kilt without spending
as much money. Nearly identical in appearance to our Formal Kilts,
Casual Kilts are machine stitched instead of hand stitched, and
made with less tartan.
NOTE Welsh tartans are not woven with a kilting selvage,
so kilts will be hemmed. (It still looks great though. You won't
know the difference). Also, Welsh tartans are woven a little looser,
and have a softer feel than you will be used to if you are already
familiar with Scottish tartans.
One extra, interesting option you have with a Welsh kilt is the
option of having a small Welsh Dragon embroidered on the front apron
of your kilt at no extra charge. Choice of plain red Welsh dragon,
or a St. David's Cross.
Made to order in Wales. Please allow 6-12 weeks for delivery.
To Measure for Your kilt:
Measure your waist size in inches at the navel (belly button). This
is the traditional kilt waist.
Alternatively, many men prefer to wear their Casual 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 is more formal, but it 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
4) Your height.
