UT Kilts Premium Wool Kilt vs Standard Wool Kilt
We currently have two types of wool kilts: The Premium and The Standard. While both are constructed in very similar ways, there are some very big differences. These differences give our premium wool kilt the most traditional look and feel. The extra yardage in fabric used means a better swing, with more pleats in the rear. Combining that with a 16oz wool fabric and you get an absolutely stunning kilt. At only $35 dollars more than the standard wool kilt, you get a more authentic looking kilt with a very low increase in cost.

This is a universal tartan. That means it does not have any clan or other affiliation. From the Scottish Tartans Authority:
"This sett is based on Logans 'Sutherland' tartan. Various thread counts appear in Wilsons pattern books of roughly the same proportions. Documents show that this was the tartan appointed for the Highland Companies in 1725 and later for the Black Watch in 1739. Slightly different count from 42nd Regiment. Sample in STA's Scarlett Collection. Sinclair/Brown Scrapbook (started in the 1930s) provides a particularly dark sample with the notes: " . . . worn by Earl of Sutherland 1719 [Portrait] and known to have been used by the clan and by the Gordons in the early 17th century."
Who can wear this tartan?

This is a kilt that will likely impress your Scottish Grandma, it is a great looking kilt and warm enough for early winter and even to Christmas dinner, Gran will be also impressed with the thriftiness of a UT Kilts purchase.
This is my third kilt and it is quickly becoming my favorite. With the temperatures getting lower & lower, I was dreading having to wear pants again. But this full wool kilt keeps me warm enough to not wear pants again. It looks fantastic and draws a lot of attention.
