Black Watch Tartan Traditional Scottish Kilt 

This is the UTK Traditional Scottish acrylic kilt.  Made from an acrylic fabric, this kilt will give you a great kilt for a low price.  The acrylic kilt is perfect for any situation like ren faires or Scottish festivals where a wool kilt may get damaged or dirty.  It is machine washable so it is much easier to clean than a typical wool kilt.  While traditional kilts are made from wool, the acrylic kilt gives you an affordable option that is not cheap looking or just a costume.  While most wear these kilts for in-formal occasions, we have sold these to many to use for weddings and other formal situations when budgets did not allow for a more expensive, wool kilt.  This is the perfect kilt for those unsure if wearing a kilt is for them.

Tartan Information

This is a universal tartan.  That means it does not have any clan or other affiliation.  You do not need to have any special historical or ancestral connection to wear it.


The size that you choose for your order will be the smallest setting on the buckle straps (i.e. a size 36 adjusts from a 36 up to just under a 39.5).  Depending on where you want the buckle to end on your waist will determine your size.  A good rule of thumb to follow is to go down 1-2 inches from your measured waist size.  That will put you in the middle of the buckle straps (i.e. 39 or 40 measured would order a 38).  
You MUST measure in order to get the correct size.  Please visit our measuring section of the website to determine which size is best for you.  DO NOT use your pants or jeans size to determine your kilt size. 
Custom waist sizes, lengths, or tartans
Need a waist size or length not listed here?  Looking for a different tartan? Checkout our special order listing here that will allow you to customize the kilt to your exact waist and length (only recommended if our in stock sizes won't work).  We also have many other tartans listed there that we can custom order to your specific size.

    Superior work!

    This kilt is stylish, comfortable and well made! I've received 3 compliments on the kilt and I've only worn it twice! One lady asked if my kilt was made in Scotland!! I told her I think so. The quality of the workmanship for such a great price is incredible!! Thanks again, UTKilts!

    Black Watch tartan acrylic kilt

    Posted by Charles Davidson on 23rd Feb 2021

    This is my first traditionally designed kilt, and I love it. The material is a nice middle weight blend that has a nice feel and flow to it. The leather straps are a little thin for my taste, but since most probably won’t be wearing their kilt daily, with care they should last a good long time. The sizing is spot on, as long as you follow the sizing guide and measure properly.

    Black Watch Tartsn

    Posted by Stephen on 29th Aug 2020

    Really comfortable to wear. It’s a little heavier then the utility tartan I have and no pockets which is fine. Shipping was incredibly fast and customer service is outstanding. Anytime I get comments around town I refer them to UT Kilts. Plan on buying another shortly.

    It's ok

    This is kilt #6 I've bought from UT Kilts. The first one was a standard utility I undergrew, the second and third were a 8 yard acrylic in black watch and a wool in Scottish national. Both were bought off the clearance section, which I eventually undergrew. Those two were the best buys I've had with kilts and made me a loyal customer. Since then I've bought a St Patricks in acrylic, a wool in muted buchanan, a rip stop deluxe utility and now a this latest one. The St Patricks and this one aren't what the original black watch was in terms of weight, quality and length, with the latest black watch and the wool buchanan muted. the buchanan was bought off clearance, so I got what I got, but neither that one nor this latest one are/were 24", Maybe 23.5"ish.. I don't know the changes behind the scene, but it seems like that quality has dropped. I usually can get away with a 24", but a 25" is better, which the Scottish national wool was. I have to wear this one below the navel otherwise it's above the knee a bit. I think the Pakistani tailors need to check their rulers/tape measures and maybe some quality checks. I was hoping this kilt was like the last black watch I bought here, but it isn't. I think it's time to spend more money and have a kilt made for me in the US. Brice always gives great service and he's competitive price wise, but I think he needs to go back to the heavier materials in the fabric and straps if he wants my business anymore.

    UT Kilts:
    I am sorry it did not live up to your standards. We have reached out and, of course, offer a return for a refund or exchange.

    Black Watch Acrylic Kilt

    Posted by Russell Campbell on 29th Aug 2018

    Impressive! I recently purchased a custom-made wool kilt from another vendor. The wool kilt cost more than 10x the price of this acrylic one. The acrylic version feels and looks like wool - I have no idea how this is possible! It's a great value and I think that it works for any occasion. A great starter kilt, good for athletics, or a presentable back - up for more formal events.

    Black Watch Tartan Kilt

    Posted by K Bryant on 17th Aug 2018

    After much debate and delay, I finally bought a UTKilt tartan kilt for a Highland festival in my hometown. I was amazed at what I got! I was expecting something on the order of flannel shirt material, not the beautiful, beefy garment that I received. My wife swore it was wool and even went ballistic when I told her I spent $300 for a wool kilt! The leather sporran and hose were also exceptional quality for the reasonable price. They say you get what you pay for - unless you shop UTKilts, where you get more that you pay for.

    Great Fit

    Posted by Lou on 14th Mar 2018

    This was a great fit, lightweight, and looks awesome. Much lighter than my 100% wool kilt, and hangs like a more expensive kilt. Next kilt will probably be an Ulster. Wish you had a Seabee tartan.

    Great first kilt

    Posted by ESL on 5th Mar 2018

    This was my first kilt purchase, intended for use doing swordfighting demonstrations. Since I expect to get a bit of damage (we're using fencing epee blades) I didn't want to pay a whole lot. Much to (very pleasant) surprise, the quality was far more than I expected and I'm having a hard time not wearing this kilt all the time.
    Just one thing to watch out for: the points on the buckles are very, very sharp. Fortunately, they file down easily enough.
