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.)
