Other 5 Yard Kilt Specifications
- Our 5 Yard Kilt is made specifically for you using your exact body measurements that you provide.
- You can expect 1-1.2″ pleats from this kilt.
- The 5 Yard kilt is tapered down the fell to ensure you get the best fit possible.
- A good “swing” can be achieved. For added “swing”, consider the 8 yard kilt.
- This kilt is fitted with three high quality leather straps. You will also notice that the straps feature some intricate knotwork with high quality cast buckles.
- The kilt has two belt loops for holding your kilt belt.
- Waist: measure firmly around waist at navel (belly button) height.
- Seat: measure around the largest part of the seat area.
- Kilt Length: measure from the top of the hip at navel height to the top or middle of the knee. As a rule of thumb, your kilt length should be no shorter than a third of your height. It's usually better to get someone to help with this measurement, as you'll tend to lean forward and shorten the length when doing it yourself.
- Height: provide this in feet and inches.

Pleating at the back can either be 'to the sett' meaning it continues the pattern of the tartan, while 'to the strip' means each pleat carries a uniform stripe from the tartan (see picture comparison above). You have the option to choose which colour stripe you'd like carried over in this option (imput which colour from your chosen tartan you'd like in the text box).
