The Royal Fusiliers were originally formed from two companies of the Tower of London guard, and called the Ordnance Regiment. Most regiments were equipped with matchlock muskets at the time, but the Ordnance Regiment were armed with flintlock fusils. This was because their task was to be an escort for the artillery, for which matchlocks would have carried the risk of igniting the open-topped barrels of gunpowder.
Drop us a line if you would like us to make a Skilt in your regiment’s colours.
Remember ’80s pop star Marilyn? You know, Boy George’s mate? Well, he’s on the way back and this time he’s wearing a Skilt!
A few days ago a chap called Christopher enquired about the possibility of making a pink Skilt for his holiday in Gran Canaria. Absolutely we can.
Christopher, if you are reading this now my emails are being returned from the address you provided. Can you please get back in touch with me: firstname.lastname@example.org?
I just thought you might like to see the effect of ‘those edges’ in a nightclub setting!!
Like something JPG could have designed for Fifth Element!!
Best wishes from Sitges.
Stoked to receive this comment from a customer who describes himself as ‘very satisfied’. Thanks Tim.
After several centuries of brainwashing to the contrary, ordinary men throughout the western world are beginning to realise that the wearing of skirt type garments is practical, logical, and extremely comfortable. So why the hell not do it?And if it’s a skirt type garment you’re after that looks great on a bloke – you’ve come to the right place! This wide selection of exquisitely tailored ‘skilts’ is, I reckon, about the best in the world. Each pleat is individually cut to a broad flare and sewn so the whole thing hangs beautifully from your waist. What you see in the pictures is what you get.I bought three:DENIM – rough and tough as any pair of Levis I ever wore to work (but with the added advantage it will never wear out at the knees or pockets)CORDUROY – same as above, but softer and cosy warm. If you’re off on a days hike down on the coast with your lunch and a hip flask you’d be an absolute idiot not to don one of these!
And a toe curling brew it looks to be too. Check out all the old school exercise equipment in the background. It turns out that Dave runs the London Longsword Academy. So if you ever need to take revenge against a six fingered man … you know where to go for training.
Sadly, despite all this support, Ireland beat England 19 : 9. Next time!
New customer Stefan from Sweden demonstrating two features of the Skilt: the moveable and removable pockets, and the way the front apron hangs between the legs to protect your modesty. He seems pretty happy with the service too:
“The kilt arrived today. It’s absolutely gorgeous and the size is perfect.
Thanks for fast delivery and good service. The weekend is saved :)”
Good on you Stefan – and good luck with your Skilt wearing in the Swedish winter!

As you probably know Movember is the mens’ health charity. All around the world men, most of whom are usually clean shaven, grow a moustache from scratch during the month of November in order to raise awareness and cash.
Multiple Skilt owner Nick FfFoulkes has gone one better. In addition to growing the tache, he is wearing a Skilt every day as he works as a kitchen fitter. He’s not wearing a plain Skilt either … but one with kitties on it (ahh!)
Please show your support for mens’ health and Nick by sponsoring him here.
Nice one Nick!
Apparently it wasn’t just the cows who were showing an interest!
According to Greg though Paris may be regarded by many as the fashion capital of the world Parisiens are not so confident when it comes to wearing what they design. “You’ve got London for that” he says. Greg’s just been back to pick out his second Skilt: another black one but with fire insert pleats. We are sure he’ll set Paris alight.
Why have hamburgers in Hamburg when you can have Mexican at El Pikosito?
What an honour to see Lee Thompson, the saxophonist from Madness, in his St George Cross kilt at the Olympic closing ceremony last night. Looks like the Englishness may have been an issue though as a couple of small Union Flags had been stitched onto the front. Wish we’d had the opportunity to provide him with a Union Flag kilt instead. Hopefully the George Cross one will be returned to its full glory for future gigs.
