Differences between our 3 styles of kilts
#1 - 5 Yard Wool Kilts Made in Scotland
This style is the perfect kilt for those on a budget or for those that want less material used for a lighter weight kilt in hotter climates. Using less yardage does mean a kilt with fewer pleats and less 'swing' while walking. However, these are still fantastic kilts and can be used for casual wear or formal attire.
#2 - Premium Traditional Scottish Kilt with fabric woven in Scotland
These kilts will be made exactly like our premium 16oz wool that we currently carry in stock and have for special order. Everything will be made the same except the fabric will come from Scotland. By sourcing the fabric in Scotland, we can have access to almost any tartan that you could want. That is something that is not possible with our current weaving mills that are not in Scotland. Our premium line is made with 6-8 yards of material, depending on your waist size.
#3 - Premium Traditional Scottish Kilt woven and made in Scotland
These kilts will be made from tartan material woven in Scotland. However, the difference from the one above is that:
1. The kilt will be made in Scotland, rather than by our in house kilt makers.
2. The kilt will be 8 yards for all sizes (smaller sizes closer to 30 may be slightly less)
If you have ever wanted a traditional Scottish kilt, made in Scotland, this is for you.
The cost of your kilt
The cost of your kilt is going to depend on the style of kilt you choose along with your measured waist size and the tartan. Any time there will be a difference in price from what is listed, a cost or 'surcharge' will follow what you are choosing. The best thing to do is go through and select each of the options. As you go through your price will update automatically if there are any changes.
Our 16oz wool vs Woven in Scotland 16oz wool
Our premium kilts use a 16oz wool that is a Woolen wool, while the wool we get from Scotland will be a worsted wool. A woolen wool has a more fuzzy or rough finish while the worsted would be a very smooth finish (smoothness varies from mill to mill). Each has its own pro's and cons:
Tends to be warmer
Easier to clean and take care of
Cost to weave is a lot less
Tends to wrinkle much easier than worsted
Tends to wrinkle much less than woolen
Has a more smooth-to-the-touch finish than woolen
Cost tends to be a lot more
Much more care must be taken for cleaning and long term storage
A typical traditional kilt made in Scotland would be made from a worsted wool, though other fabrics are used.
Premium wool kilts cost vs Woven in Scotland vs Woven/Made in Scotland
At UT Kilts we have always tried to give the lowest price we could and still offer an amazing, long lasting product. In all of our products, utility or traditional, we feel like we have met that goal. However, we have also wanted to expand our tartan selection so anyone could get their favorite clan or fashion tartan. We have been hesitant since the cost can jump significantly (anyone that has done any research knows this first hand). With this new product offering we believe we have found a way to keep costs down as much as possible while still offering an amazing kilt with Scottish woven tartans.
The following is our price breakdown:

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: My tartan is not listed. Are you able to get it?
A: You bet! There is a good chance we can. We are adding tartans to our list almost weekly (at the beginning). If yours is not here, just use the contact form and we can possibly add it.
Q: Why would one tartan cost more than another? Aren't they all the same fabric?
A: They can be, but not always. In many cases, for example with rarer tartans, the fabric is different and usually costs more to make. Just send us an email and we can quickly
Q: Why are these so much more than what your other kilts cost?
A: While the fabric we use for our kilts is absolutely amazing for the price, it does not have the qualities that a worsted wool has. The type of worsted wool you need for a kilt is only available in Scotland and that is what drives the cost of these kilts. If you compare our made in Scotland kilts to anyone else you will see we are around 10-20% less in price.
