Standard Spirit of the Highlander Tartan Wool Kilt 16oz 

This amazing wool kilt is the perfect answer to those wanting a traditional kilt, lighter in weight that will look amazing for both formal and informal occasions..   The kilt is made from 4-5 yards of woolen wool tartan fabric.  This makes for a lighter weight kilt while still trying to keep as much "swing" in the pleats as possible.  Whether you need something lighter for a highlander games or just something more budget friendly, the UTKilts standard wool traditional kilt is perfect.  Plus, you don't have to spend hundreds of dollars for it.  At only $89.50, you get the perfect blend of a great price and an superbly made kilt.

Tartan Information

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 tartan is classified as a universal or fashion tartan.  You do not need to have any special historical or ancestral connection to wear it.  

Measuring

The size that you choose for your order will be the smallest setting on the buckle straps (i.e. a size 36 adjusts from a 36 up to just under a 39.5).  Depending on where you want the buckle to end on your waist will determine your size.  A good rule of thumb to follow is to go down 2 inches from your measured waist size.  That will put you in the middle of the buckle straps (i.e. 40 measured would order a 38).  
You MUST measure in order to get the correct size.  Please visit our measuring section of the website to determine which size is best for you.  DO NOT use your pants or jeans size to determine your kilt size.

    Compared to the competition

    Compared to the competition, UTKILTS has passed them ALL. I bought a wool kilt last year from UtKilts and it is even better than those made in Scotland.
