Our Story So Far....
Hi. My name is Barry Fisher. Thank you for visiting our website. I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about me and the reason why I started this business.
Born in a small town in West Lothian, Scotland. I lived there for 30+ years before moving to Canada in 2014. I am married with a son. I have been involved in sales and customer service from the age of 14. From managing supermarkets, to owning food trucks, I have always been a hands on type of person. Sitting back in an office has never appealed to me.
For my own bachelor party, it was decided that the destination had to be Vegas. A kilt theme was decided between everyone who was making the trip from Scotland and Canada. I searched locally and nationwide and could not find any company selling kilts for reasonable prices. The lowest price I could find was in excess of $500. I certainly wasn't paying that for an item to wear on a bachelor party so I ended up ordering them from Scotland where I knew they were priced lower from certain companies.
Once I had returned from my bachelor party, I spent months researching kilt shops locally and nationwide. I did not find any retailer offering kilts at affordable prices. I decided to bridge the gap that existed between having no kilt at all or paying hundreds of dollars for one.......Affordable Kilts was born! We went live in April 2017 and haven't looked back.
Just because our prices are lower than you might expect for quality kilts & accessories, that does not mean the products we supply are cheap. Our aim is simple: To provide quality kilts at affordable prices. We are a small business, we care about our customers. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions at all. We are here to help you and give you the best experience possible. We put our customers first. Without you, we have no business. You can contact us here.
I have absolutely LOVED building Affordable Kilts from scratch. From building this website to finding trustworthy, reliable kilt makers that pass my quality test (which is simply.....would I buy this item myself?). It's all been great fun and an amazing learning experience. Mistakes have been made along the way but we always correct them, learn from them and move on happy knowing that we've improved as a business.
We do go out to as many events as possible with our mobile store. It's our aim to get to more and more as time goes on.
Our main market is the US & Canada but we do ship all over the world. We've taken orders from as far away as New Zealand, Australia, Scotland, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands to name a few countries.
There are plenty of custom kilt makers in Canada & the US. If you are looking for a custom, made to measure kilt and don't mind paying in excess of $500 for just the kilt alone, this is not the place for you. (Send me a message and I will be more than happy to recommend a few other companies for you to contact). If you are looking for a fantastic looking kilt at a fraction of the cost, then look no further.
We are so confident in the quality of what we provide that we offer a money back guarantee. If you don't like what you receive, send it back and we'll refund your payment in full. Simple.
Customer satisfaction is our highest priority. We are extremely proud of the reviews we have received so far. You can check them out here.
