Royal Marines kilt

We recently accepted a commission to create a Royal Marines kilt in the Corps Colours:

  • Blue 4 part
  • Yellow 1 part
  • Green 1 part
  • Red 2 parts
  • Blue 4 parts

Blue

Navy blue is the primary colour in the combination selected. it marks the intimate connection of the Corps with the RN. Blue was the colour of the facings on the uniform for over 100 years.

Red

Drummer red is the secondary colour in the design. This tint of red is the old historic colour of the British Army and was worn by the infantry of the Corps from early times down to the introduction of scarlet in 1876.

Green

Light Infantry green was worn on the shako by the infantry of the Corps for some years. It was perpetuated in the bugle strings of the RMLI

Yellow

Old gold, rather than yellow, is the colour closely associated with the early history of the Corps, as it was the distinctive colour of the dress and ensigns of the Duke of York and Albany’s Maritime Regiment of Foot from which the Corps originates.

  1. How Much fae a kilt like this?

    1. Hi Fred,

      For a made to order kilt where we source the fabric we currently charge £300 plus the cost of the fabric. So we are looking at £320 + postage. If you have got some friends who would like to order with you then the cost per kilt comes down significantly. How does that sound to you?

      All the best,

      Richard.

  2. Do you ship to the USA and how long would shipping take. I would also like 45 Commando Tartan colours as well. What would be the cost of both?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Andy,

      Yes we ship to the USA at no extra cost.

      The commando stable belt design shown is £320
      The commando tartan kilt would be £250 plus the cost price of 4m of the tartan itself (which could be in the region of an additional £300)
      There is a £9.75 postage charge

      So, in total we are looking at £579.75 + the cost of 4m of tartan
      The factory is really busy at the moment so we are probably looking at mid March or so if you decide to put in an order.

      Any other questions please drop me a line.

    2. Is this the RM tartan you had in mind?
      As it is only 70cm wide I think we’d need about 8m of this. Looks like the cost would be about £440 for the tartan.

  3. Hi Richard

    Sign me up for the Corp Stable belt. Q? Might sound stupid but, how do I add to cart and complete the order?

    Also……I can’t view the RM tartan kilt but, if you do a 45 Commando one, I’ll be interested!

    Thanks

  4. Hi Richard, love your design, if i were to put an order in how long would it take to be ready?

    1. Hi Chris,

      Thanks a lot. It depends how busy the factory is and how urgent the order is … usually about 6 weeks is enough. Do you have a deadline?

      Cheers,

      Richard
