Clan Kincaid Modern Tartan Kilt


Decide where you want to wear your kilt. You can wear it at your natural waist, a bit above your belly button, or lower, closer to your hips like jeans or shorts. It’s your choice, depending on what’s most comfortable for you. If you want a more flattering look, it’s recommended to wear it higher up. Use a measuring tape to find where you want the top of your kilt to sit. Make it snug but not too tight, and stand naturally without sucking in or pushing out your stomach.

(Measuring the Space between Waist and Hip) Extend the measuring tape from the point you marked on your waist to the spot you noted on your hip. The pleats will be securely sewn along the fell, and this contributes to the distinctive swaying and fluid motion of a kilt as you walk.

Measure around the broadest part of your hip. To find this spot, stand with your back against a wall and take a few steps back. The area that makes contact with the wall first is where you should have your measurement.

A kilt is typically worn around knee length. If you prefer a very traditional appearance, position your kilt at the top of your knee. But if you like a more relaxed, hip-level look, place it at the bottom of your knee. To determine the length, stand upright and have your Trusty Assistant measure from the point where you took your waist measurement down to your chosen knee spot for the kilt’s hem. Alternatively, you can bend your knees and measure from the waist to the floor. Make sure these measurements are precise – double-check them, and even triple-check if needed. If something doesn’t feel right or if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask for assistance.
