How to measure for a kilt with out measuring the waist.
Use this when giving a gift or other situation where you are not able to measure their waist.
NOTE: Your measurement should be 3-4 inches bigger than what the pants say. Example: A size 38 pants should measure around a 41-42.
Typically a person will wear 2 sizes above what their jeans are. EXAMPLE: Someone that wears a size 42 pants will typically wear a size 46 kilt.
NOTE: Only go up 2 sizes when the person can't measure their waist. It is ONLY a guess and you might end up with the wrong size. The only way to guarantee the right fit is too measure.
Modern kilts are typically worn at or near your jeans waist. Although, you can wear them higher if you prefer.
Traditional kilts are typically worn higher on the waist, usually at the navel. However, you can wear it wherever you like
