Combat Skilt – features and sizing

The Combat Skilt is a fusion of kilt and British army combat clothing. Old style button down belt loops allow a wide stable belt or 58 pattern webbing belt (shown) to we worn with ease. Wear the pockets at the side for the true combat look – on patrol or harboured up in the bar.


The Combat Skilt is a wide apron contemporary kilt with single direction knife pleats and detachable pockets

It fastens with velcro at the waist and is held in place by a belt (not supplied). Because of the method of closure the skilts can be made as small as required and accomodate flexing waistlines

Each Skilt uses in the region of 5.2 meters (5.7 yards) of fabric. All the pleats are individually sewn and will never fall out

The reverse pleat on the right hand side is extra wide. Note that there are no buckles or straps

Pockets can be worn on the sides or ‘sporran style’ at the front
Or remove the pockets and wear a sporran (not supplied). Note that a belt is always worn as this covers the velcro on the waistband and makes sense of the large belt loops The pockets are a massive 20cm wide – big enough for books and beer bottles. This photo shows the velcro that the pocket sticks onto prior to being held in place by a belt We don’t like plastic buttons. Ours are made from very high quality Corozo, the nut of a South American palm tree


The off the peg Skilts are all a standard 23 inches (58.5 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 23 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 77 – 92 30 – 36 58.5 23
Medium 82 – 96 32 – 38 58.5 23
Large 87 – 101 34 – 40 58.5 23
Extra Large 96 – 111 38 – 44 58.5 23

If you require a different length or waist size then please let us know … if we still have fabric on the roll we can make you one to order.

    1. Hi Chris,

      I’m happy to send Skilts to the USA – I don’t charge any more for shipping either. Just order as usual through the site – paypal does the dollar conversion automatically.
