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!

USA Stars & Stripes Skilt

Our Skilts are made in London, England but we know that they are also popular on the other side of the pond.  This one is for our patriotic American cousins: a stars and strips Skilt.

The main fabric in this Skilt is hard wearing cotton drill.  It features a blue front apron with white leather appliqué stars and alternating red and white pleats.  It comes complete with two big, detachable blue pockets.  Perfect for sporting events, concerts, and just about anywhere you want to show your true colours.

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.

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.

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!

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.


On a kilt fabric buying expedition in the wilds of north London

Kilt fabric

With friend and ace photographer Laura Hynd.  I went to buy a small quantity of black synthetic fabric for a custom order and came away with 62 metres of fabulous brown wool fabric that will make up beautifully.

Kilts at the Barbican Centre on Sunday 18th December

 

Do come and visit us at the Duckie Christmas market at the Barbican Centre this Sunday December 18th. We’ll be there from 2pm-9pm and filled with Christmas cheer, and mince pies from the other vendors.  There are some lovely new kilts to see, that haven’t made it up on to the website yet!


Our kilts featured in Notion Magazine

We are delighted that Skilt has been featured in the Buffalo Boy feature in Notion 051.  We’re not sure exactly what a Buffalo Boy is but we figure it’s a reference to Malcolm McLaren’s Buffalo Gals.  All this scratching’s making us itch!


Skilt gets men to rock the punk look

Hi Richard,

Thought I would drop you a line to let you know that I was really impressed by your show at Alternative Fashion Week and have given it a mention in my article on Thinpurse.com along with a link to your website. You can check out the article here.

Thanks,

Imogen

Best responses when someone informs you that ‘that’s not a real / proper kilt’

How do you know?

I agree, it’s a completely un-real kilt

I agree, it’s a completely im-proper kilt

I assume by the trousers that you’re English … (they probably aren’t)

My other kilt’s a (enter tartan here), I use this one for town … it has more luggage space and gets better milage

 

 


Best reasons to wear a kilt

No need to unzip a kilt in the bathroom (think ‘There’s Something About Mary’!)

Kilt checks!

Skilts have roomy pockets that do not move when your legs do

Women check out men in kilts

Gay men check out men in kilts (even if it’s not your bag a complement is a complement)

Straight men check out men in kilts and admire you for having the balls to wear one

It’s better to run away with your kilt up than get caught with your pants down!

As Braveheart says: ‘Freedom!’

It would be selfish to keep those calves to yourself

Women are attracted to confidence and it takes confidence to wear a kilt

Kilts are great to dance in: plenty of ball room!

Kilts make people wonder
