T. Gershman - Customer service is a rarity, and Barry's is second to none! The kilts look incredible! Being a short guy mine needed to be hemmed, but that's completely my fault. I didn't pay attention to the drop length. Luckily I'm also a fairly crafty guy so hemming only took me about an hour even though I know Barry would have probably had an easier solution. My other half is of Irish / Scottish / Welsh descent, and as long as we've been together I've tried to keep an eye out for kilt pricing. The price results of my first search (back in 2000) nearly knocked me onto the floor. Thank you, thank you, thank you for awesome products, great pricing, and stellar customer service!
S. Melton - Barry is the absolute best at what he does, and for the price he does. The product is very high quality. Barry's customer service is is where he pulls away from any competition just like this: I needed a McGregor kilt in 3.5 weeks for a wedding where I was the pastor marrying my daughter and her fiancee so everyone would see me so it had to be perfect. Barry got it done, had it in hand before the wedding, got so many compliments on it and how it looked and fit. Oh and just incase you were wondering about the wedding it was perfect. Barry's reputation in the kilt world 🌎 is the bomb 💣 so much so I've ordered 4 more kilts from him. So order with absolutely no worries from Affordable Kilts you will be glad you did. Thanks again Barry.
D. Bennett - Affordable Kilts has, in my humble opinion, the best customer service that I have ever encountered in an online sales venue. Quality products combined with excellent delivery at a very affordable price point. I am a repeat customer for a reason. My Argyll jacket arrived within a week and I was so impressed with the product that I ordered a kilt to add to my highland kit. Thanks for looking after everything Barry!
K. Rye - This company is more than amazing. I was having such a hard time finding my fiance his kilt, I had been looking for months and even looking for fabric to make one, by the time I found Affordable Kilts the wedding was 4 weeks away, and they are across the country from me and it needed to be made to fit him, there were none in stock in his size. So easy to talk with this company and I had explained what was going on, not only did they keep in touch with me almost every other day but they were so fast that they got it completed and shipped, (they even express shipped it for me free of charge!!) that it arrived two weeks before the wedding, and it looks amazing, proper tartan colours, (which I couldn't find anywhere) and it fits great. We couldn't be more pleased and if you ever need a kilt I would 110% recommend Affordable Kilts above all else!!!!!!
Mary Elizebeth O'Malley - From our very first interaction with Affordable Kilts it was clear that this was a company which far surpasses its competitors. My son was the ring bearer in my brother’s wedding. Barry spent time on the phone with us talking us through the pieces needed for the outfit, explaining the pros and cons of certain details and creating a cart for my son’s formal kilt. He even referred us to other companies when he did not have a product we needed to complete the outfit. I ended up placing the order a little bit late, which lead to a deadline crunch. Barry’s exceptional customer service and attention to detail alleviated so much stress and anxiety. He took time calling other companies and personally talking to his own staff to work with us on finding a solution to get the kilt in time for the wedding. He set up express shipment, tracked the package himself, reached out to the shipping company when it seemed there might be a delay and called me to give me updates every step of the way! We would not have had a kilt for my son to wear in the wedding if not for Barry. He made what would otherwise have been a disaster, manageable. In my humble opinion, this is the soul of what EVERY company should strive to be for their customers! When the packages arrived the quality of the products far surpassed my expectation. I still find myself, two months later, picking up the kilt and marveling at the workmanship. It is absolutely lovely! I honestly had no idea that a product priced so well, compared to similar items online, would have anywhere near the level of quality and attention to detail that this does! The kilt was a huge hit at the wedding and my son has been so excited to wear it to other events as well. I am so deeply grateful to Barry and everyone at Affordable Kilts for their resolute customer service and exquisite workmanship. It would be an honor to purchase from them again.
R.MacLeod - I must say that the ‘bang for the buck’ is truly remarkable! I was a little gun-shy to begin with, but given the reasonable price - thought I’d take the gamble. The workmanship is excellent, the material has a nice weight and the kilt hangs properly.
Your extra attention in getting people to measure themselves properly was a great move on your part! Had I not re-read your instructions, I fear that the kit would not have fit at all!
The delivery time was reasonable given the level of workmanship in the garment. You get a thumb’s up for a job well done. Have I need of another kilt - I will definitely be in touch!
J. Nytch - Absolutely great kilt at a great price, no doubt about it; but what sets this company apart is the level of customer service and care. You can have zero fear or reservations when it comes to buying from Affordable Kilts, if anything goes wrong, know that they will work tirelessly to correct it. Cannot recommend highly enough!
B. Beck - Your kilts are amazing. I received my MacLeod of Harris kilt with no issue. The wool tartan fabric is woven nicely and is comfortable when worn. The pleats move with no issue and seat perfectly. I highly recommend your product to anyone wishing to have a quality kilt. Your service and communication has been excellent even during this constant change due to the worldwide pandemic. I plan to continue purchasing your product for years to come.
Eleanor - Oh my goodness, we are thrilled with how easy the process was. Based on the price of the kilt we purchased, the quality is extremely good. We were not expecting the quality to be so good. We wished we had purchased the kilts etc instead of renting them all these years. When my son outgrows this kilt we will definitely be buying another affordable kilt. We have also told all our family so they can do the same.
M. Gallagher - We are beyond thrilled with our order. The quality of work and fabric is gorgeous. Customer service was spectacular. My fiancé will be wearing his kilt with pride on our wedding day - thank you so much for that!
P. Anderson - You know, I just wish I had shopped with you sooner. Was there an issue with my order? Yes. Are you taking care of it? Most certainly. Is the quality of the kilt I received good? No, it’s outstanding. When I opened the package, when I ran my hand over the fabric, it just had a very lux quality…. I put it on with my jacket and dress shirt, and, the way it hung, the way it moved…. You know, I have other kilts, and I always read, oh, this synthetic wool, it’s better than wool, the way it drapes, how it moves, you’ll never know the difference. Then, I got a kilt, a nice kilt, 75% wool, your kilt, and I don’t know if it’s because how it was made, don’t know if it’s the fabric, but there IS a difference, a really big difference. I cannot wait to get my fly plaid (you’ll get a picture/video once I can get my dress ensemble together!). Cheers and thank you, again!
KERRY FRENCH - I have had the honour of being a customer of Affordable Kilts for the past year and half. I now am the proud owner of 4 kilts, 2 ghillie shirts, socks, brooches, a sgian dubh and a tartan fly. Affordable kilts are just that, affordable! They are of outstanding quality and craftsmanship. I wear my utility kilts just about everywhere, I get lots of looks and get asked where I get my kilts from. A great product gets noticed Communication is top notch as I have had several phone calls with Barry directly. It is evident in his desire for not only good communication but accuracy in the order that he is a man of heart and cares greatly for both his products and his customers. Well done Affordable Kilts, well done Barry. I will certainly be ordering again soon!! Slainte!
