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.

Just got my UTKILTS weathered Black Watch kilt today and could not be happier, the quality of the materials is next to none.
I am looking forward to wearing this at my next function. I am very pleased with UTKilts products. The quality is excellent which is why this is the 4th kilt I have purchased from UTKilts. Customer Service is excellent and very responsive and easy to work with. Highly recommend!
I've bought a few "budget" kilts from other shops before, and I have never been satisfied. I bought this one hoping it would be better, and wow! It is miles better than what I was expecting, and hands down the best kilt you can buy for a decent price.
This kilt has even, sett pleats (over 4 inches deep), the selvedge is done beautifully, the belt loops, straps, and buckles are tough and built to last. The wool itself is soft, rich, and tightly knit, with very few loose threads and no runs. I wear kilts in the "regimental" manner, and this wool doesn't irritate me or cause itching.
Pressing and steaming the kilt is easy, the way it should be, not like PV kilts that never look right, no matter how much time you spend pressing and trying to fix them. When I received this in the mail, it took less than 10 minutes to press it with my steam iron, the wrinkles come out easily.
I doubt that anyone could tell the difference between this and an expensive bespoke kilt. Wearing "budget" PV kilts became gradually more embarrassing as I realised how cheap and stupid they look, but with this kilt, I look and feel like a million dollars.
Following Brice's recommendation of going 2 sizes down from the measured size provided me with enough room to lose or gain 2 sizes, so I will be able to wear it well into the future.
If you are new to kilts and want to start strong, save yourself wasting money on cheaper kilts, and get one of these instead. You will not regret it!
I've wanted a kilt since I was about 7 years old and have been deterred by price for the real deal. This one delivers the goods! I love it. Plus, I'm always happy to support a local business (even though the wool is not from Utah sheep ;) ).
I am completely satisfied beyond my expectations. This was my first purchase from UT Kilts and there have been more items purchased since. I have custom kilts, Grant tartan (Black watch is the same as a Grant hunting tartan which is why I jumped at the chance to get this tartan at such a good price), from Scotland, but for the price, the UT Kilt can't be beat.
It is pleated on the sett and they did an excellent job of aligning the sett through all 23 pleats. The sett is properly centered on the front apron. While there are some minor flaws in the wool fabric, they are well hidden in the construction. The fabric is totally appropriate for a muted hunting tartan. Even details like matching the sett on the belt loops (and flashes) indicates attention to detail. The bottom edge is precisely aligned. Straps and buckle hardware are substantial. You can pay hundreds more for a 16oz 8yd wool kilt and yes the fabric would be nicer etc. but the UT Kilt can be worn proudly at any Scottish event. I purchased this kilt for highland games but its use will be beyond that.
I received my kilt the day after I ordered it - wow. I have literally waited months for off-the-shelf items from Scotland. I do live less than 50 miles from UT Kilts so USPS was good.
Another reviewer noted the thickness of the waistband above the pleats - yes it is a bit thick due to the layers of fabric. It will keep your lower back warm in cooler weather.
If you want a good wool kilt that hangs well and looks good this might be the answer.
This really IS a premium product. I own one of UTKilts' "standard" wool kilts, which I like very much, but this one is much more substantial, heavier, more pleats, etc. I'm VERY pleased with it!
I will warn potential buyers that, at least in my experience, the size 34 premium kilt fits much tighter than the size 34 standard. This is due, in part, to the very much thicker panel along the small of the back (no doubt from gathering many more pleats of heavier fabric).
