Self Measurement Guide

Normally when receiving customers own measurements, we can tell by the height whether the length of the kilt is in proportion as this measure is the one that most people get wrong. We are always happy to discuss by phone/email to guide you through the procedures of customers own measures but you should always get someone else to measure you as you cannot measure yourself accurately.

Jackets and shoes really have to be tried on as makers sizes can vary, however off the peg sizes can always be exchanged.

We are happy to accept customers own measures on kilt outfits on the understanding that we cannot accept any responsibility if the sizes are wrong and the garment does not fit. Any alteration charges to put them right would be at the customer’s own expense.


Self Measurement Guide

Kilt Measurements

Taken round the natural waist in line with the naval. This measurement must be firm.

Taken around the broadest part of the bottom or hips. Easy measurement required.

Taken from 1.5 – 2″ above the hip bone (in line with the navel), to the middle of the kneecap.

From your full height, we can gauge if the length is correct.


Trouser Measurements

Taken round the waist where trousers are worn.

Taken round the broadest part of the bottom or hips.

Taken from crotch of trouser to finished length.

Please state whether you require the trousers to sit higher on the waist to fit a shorter style waistcoat.
