This premier quality traditional heavy weight kilt is available in a wide range of over 600 tartans, including many of the less common ancient and weathered setts.
We have our own expert kilt makers with many years experience between them, over the years we have become renowned for producing perfectly fitting kilts of exceptional quality.
Our premier heavy weight kilt is handmade in time honoured fashion, without compromise, using a minimum of 8 yards heavy weight 16oz 100% pure new worsted wool, which is woven in Scotland.
Your kilt will be hand stitched throughout, with a minimum of twenty nine, and up to thirty five, hand lifted deep pleats. Pleating will normally be to the sett, but can be to the line in the regimental manner, if specially requested.
We use superior heavy duty bridle leather kilt straps which are exclusively made for us by an Aberdeenshire saddler. The kilt straps are made from the best quality bridle leather, these cost much more than regular straps but the difference in quality speaks for itself, we guarantee they will last a lifetime.
We fit two of our high quality straps with hand cast buckles straps to every kilt we make. The additional seat buckle and strap found on most modern kilts is a hangover from the old military kilts with massive 4 rises. We find this additional kilt strap to be the most common cause of a kilt apron pulling tight and not sitting correctly. It is totally unnecessary on the civilian kilt with a 2" rise and is best left out.
The unseen work on a kilt is extremely important but often neglected to cut costs. Our kilt makers pad stitch heavy canvas by hand along the back of the kilt at the top of the pleats to preventing sagging. Our kilts are all lifted by backstitching each pleat by hand along the seat line, further ensuring that the kilt holds its shape throughout its long life. This is one of the most labour intensive stages in the construction of a kilt and often missed out completely by inferior kilt makers.
A heavy weight kilt of this quality, handmade in the traditional fashion, is labour intensive but the process does create the finest kilt. This hard wearing premier heavy weight kilt will hang well with that classic swing.
We include free tartan flashes with garters worth £24.99 with every kilt, no one gives you more value for money!
