In 2010 a bicycle messenger contacted me to ask if I could design a kilt for cycling. Well, here it is! At first sight this rugged black cotton drill kilt looks like it has a pin-stripe design … but light it up with some car headlights and it reveals it’s special feature: almost 10 metres of reflective piping! Check it out! The other thing that makes this ideal for cycling is that the pockets hang independently from the legs so your legs can peddle and the pockets hang still.
Difficult to miss … making you easier to avoid. So you make an impression when you get to your destination … not before!
The off the peg Skilts are all a standard 22.5 inches (57 cm) long. This length looks good on most guys. Rather than the standard ‘on your knees’ approach to checking kilt length we recommend that you get a towel, fold it over so it 22.5 inches long, and then wrap it around you where you would like the waist band to be. Look at your reflection from a fair distance or get someone to take a photograph so you can see where the length will be relative to your knees. There is no ‘right’ length. If you like it then that’s perfect.
The waists are very adjustable and the sizes overlap. When deciding which to order please actually measure your waist at the place you would like the waistband to be. If you don’t have a tailor’s measuring tape you can use the towel to wrap around you and then measure it flat. (Do not assume that the size in your trousers are accurate … they usually flatter.)
|Size||Waist / cm||Waist / inches||Length / cm||Length / inches|
|Small / Medium||80 – 97||31 – 38||57||22.5|
|Medium / Large||91 – 111||36 – 44||57||22.5|
|Extra Large||100 – 123||39 – 48||57||22.5|
