Noel is “always a Fusilier” his Royal Regiment of Fusiliers Skilt

20161231_205416

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.

Marilyn is coming back in a Skilt

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!

Brown corduroy with Urban Dashing Tweed Skilt

Look what I found!  I think I was going to keep this one for myself … I still might.  Buy it quick before I change my mind.

Only one of these left – in M/L.

Black leather Skilt

How many hides do you reckon it takes to make one of these leather Skilts?  Six?  Seven?  Nope, about twelve!  Twelve of the highest quality super soft nappa leather hides that money can buy.  That’s why it’s not cheep.  And that’s why it looks and feels so good.

Electric blue rubberised Skilt

This has the look and feel of a rubber kilt but in a much thicker and more durable form.  This fabric was originally used by Belstaff and I managed to buy enough for just a few Skilts.  It has a rubber layer applied to a fabric base and in real life the colour is a vibrant electric blue that addled my main camera – it is closest in colour to the lighter blue fabric pic.

Don’t dry clean it!  Hand wash in warm water.

Silver rubberised Skilt

This has the look and feel of a rubber kilt but in a much thicker and more durable form.  This fabric was originally used by Belstaff and I managed to buy enough for just a few Skilts.  It has a rubber layer applied to a fabric base and is metallic rather than reflective.

Don’t dry clean it!  Hand wash in warm water.

Lightweight silver Skilt

 

This silver Skilt weighs in at just 500g and yet it is still robust enough for everyday wear.  What kind of mythical material is it made of?  We don’t really know.  What we do know is that we could only find one roll of the stuff so, as ever, once these are gone, they are gone.  Take it backpacking or dress it up with a dinner jacket.  Just be careful in the wind and don’t expect it to keep you warm!

LGB gay pride rainbow Skilt

This Skilt is made of black cotton drill with satin side pleats.  It comes complete with two removable pockets: wear them at the sides to maximise the amount you can carry, or use a single pocket at the front to really show off the rainbow.

The S/M size uses lightweight satiin that really catches the breeze. The M/L size uses a heavier weight duchess satin.

flamingo-1526694.jpg

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: richard@skilt.co.uk?

As I promised – few pics in my fantastic Skilt 🙂 I’ve been on FOLSOM in Berlin in this kilt and people reacted very well… Three or four people openly asked for producer and of course I sent them to your website.
25th I will wear it during gala concert of International Chopin Piano Competition. It will be in Wrocław… I think it will be a reason for gossips :)) I love (S)kilts ;))
With all the best…

Jonathan is edgy in his biker Skilt

Hi Richard.
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.
Jonathan.

Finally … a new black on black leopard Skilt

Grrrr!  For years now I’ve been searching for fabric to make more black on black animal print Skilts. Well…

Lightweight and soft with a velvety feel I predict these will sell quickly.  I’ve only got one roll of fabric so if you like it you best pounce quickly.

Tim is enthusiastic in his Skilt

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: 
 
Indigo denim kiltDENIM – 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)
 
SONY DSCCORDUROY – 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!
 
Black Flock KiltBLACK FLOCK – if you think this one LOOKS stunning…you should FEEL what it’s like to wear. BLOODY HELL!! I guarantee you will never, EVER, want to take it off!

Order out of Skilt chaos

2015-07-16 16.01.41

After years of having garment rails in my lounge I now have a dedicated wardrobe for clients to browse.  One of every stye and size of Skilt available – all neat and tidy.  Next time you are in London why not come over and have a look?

Dave has a nice cup of tea in his new kitty Skilt

Kitten Cat Kilt

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.
