How to Measure
Your kilt size is NOT your pants size. Instead of measuring around your waist where you normally would for pants, you need to measure around where you plan or wearing the kilt (usually it's around the naval/belly button). Make sure the measurement is taken against the skin (do not measure over clothes otherwise you will request a size that will be too big). The tape measure should be snug although not too tight when recording your measurements. If you need any more advice, send us a message through the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page.
It is thought that each family name (or clan) has their own tartan and thus, must wear the tartan they are attached to (or the tartan that their name is closest to alphabetically). This is a myth. Any person can wear any tartan they choose. The only exception to this rule is that if you are in the presence of the Queen, you must not wear the Royal Stewart tartan.
