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.

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.
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.
Excellent quality fitting instructions are spot on.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I debuted this kilt to my friend's wedding and it was a success ( without stealing my firends' wedding). I am the 4-5th maybe human sporting a kilt in Costa Rica, but as far as I'm aware, I'm doing it with the right gear
This kilt was so much more than I expected for the price. My friend paid 5 times the price and didn't get near the quality.
I have several kilts of the traditional kind... Both Acrylic and Wool. There quality of fabric used on this particular kilt is of a much higher calibre than I had expected. Not to mention the excellent build quality that I've come to know from UTKilts product lines. Once again, Brice, thank you for your high quality standards. Your work is much appreciated
