Ordering off the internet can be frustrating. The objective of this page is to help you buy the right size Skilt first time. Luckily Skilts are highly adjustable at the waist so chances are you’ll do just fine. And if you don’t … no problem – just send it back and we’ll do our best to get you one that fits perfectly. That said, planning and preparation prevents piss poor performance; we shall consider:
Traditionally the kilt is worn high at the waist and knee. High on the waist as in ‘grandad high’ at the belly button. The traditional kilt should, apparently, terminate somewhere between the top and the middle of the kneecap. I’ve noticed that there seems to be a correlation between the level of inebriation of the kilt wearer and how far down his kilt has slipped.
Wearing a modern kilt is much more down to personal taste. The waistband tends to be worn lower – usually at the hips where your favorite pair of jeans would sit. The bottom of the kilt often sits a bit lower too … anywhere from the top to just below the bottom of the kneecap.
Your Skilt size is not your trouser size. Most of my trousers are a 34″ waist. But when I get the tape measure out I’m actually a 38″. Sad but true.
The idea with this method is that when you kneel down your kilt should just touch the floor. There are at least 2 problems with this method:
This is the most reliable method I’ve found for measuring both your waist size and your Skilt drop.
You will need: a towel, a measuring device, and a full length mirror.
