Tartan Information

Quoted from the Scottish Tartan Authority: "This started life allegedly as a 'Royal' tartan - that of the Royal House of Stuart - and theoretically the personal tartan of the reigning monarch. Over the years however it became so popular and was so widely worn by all and sundry that it is now regarded as a Universal tartan (i.e. can be worn by anyone who has no clan tartan.) In their 1850 book "The Clan and Family Tartans of Scotland" William and Andrew Smith of Mauchline wrote: "The Stuart tartan here given is that for which many years has been universally believed in Scotland to be the Tartan worn by our Scottish Sovereigns. Sometimes it is woven with a small stripe of green, bisecting the broad red belt; but we know that this green stripe is a modern innovation, and therefore we exclude it having the best authority for doing so." The green line version is probably Stewart of Rothesay at #848 and the Vestiarium entry at #846. Theoretically this cannot be used or worn without the express permission of HM The Queen. In pratice however, this is the most popular tartan ever woven and can be seen on a huge range of products. The genie is well and truly out of the bottle so the theory rather evaporates. The pattern was first published by James Logan in his book, 'The Scottish Gael' in 1831, but references indicate that the sett was known at the end of the 18th century and a slightly different version of it was reputed to have been worn by one of Bonnie Prince Charlie's followers in the 1745 rebellion. Early samples show blue as a light 'azure'. In James Cant MA's manuscript book of 450+ hand-painted colour strips, someone (presumably Jack Dalgety who inherited the book) has written " ?? har (n)dspun sett dated pre 1689 . . ." Jamie Scarlett (March 2008) said that this was labelled 'Royal Bruce' in the Moy Hall collection dated to 1820 - 1850."

Sizing / Measuring

It is extremely important you follow our measuring video and order the size you need based on your measurement, not pants size. All of men's pants are labeled 2-4 inches smaller than what they actually measure. Please see our measuring video below or check out our measuring page here.

If you measure an even size like 38 or 40, then order that exact size.  If you fall in between sizes we typically recommend ordering up in size for a loose, but comfortable fit.  However, each size has an extra set of snaps to go up one inch in waist size.  If you prefer a snug fit then you can order down if measure an odd size (example: 37 can go up to a 38 for a loose, comfortable fit or down to a 36 for  snug fit)


If you follow our measuring video in the videos section below, you will get a kilt that fits.  However, if for whatever reason it does not, UT Kilts has the best and easiest return policy.  Click for details.
