Measurements Required for Your Kilted Skirt:

(Most accurate fit when you have help; stand straight and have a friend measure for you. Bending to measure yourself will alter your results. Contact us by phone or email with any questions.)

Waist - This is the mesurement of where ever you want to wear you kilted skirt. The mesurement for the waistband. Traditionally kilted skirts are worn at your natural waist, but some, including our daughters, prefer to wear them at the currently popular hip waist, also known as the, "pant waist." 

Hip - A measurement taken at the fullest part of your hips. This is at mid-buttox level for most women. The measurement is required for a proper fit; to ensure that the skirt isn't pulling open or stretched at the hips.

Length - From waist band to bottom; how long do you want your skirt to be. There are length restrictions depending on the skirt. Please see product descriptions for limitations.

Measurements Required for Your Kilt:

(Most accurate fit when you have help; stand straight and have a friend measure for you. Bending to measure yourself will alter your results. Contact us by phone or email with any questions.)

Waist - Measurement traditionally taken at navel level. These days many wear their kilts at the pant waist instead. Where you take this measurement depends on personal preference and the type of kilt. Please veiw product description for more information on an individual kilt, or contact us if you have questions.

Hips - Measurement taken at the fullest part of the hips. This is mid-buttox level for most men. 

Length: Measurement from waistband level down to where you want the bottom of your kilt. Traditionaly the kilt rests at the top to the middle of the knee.

 

Measurements Required for a Jacket or Vest:

The instructions below are going to differ from what you may have read elsewhere, but in our experience these are going to result in the best fit. You can also order based on a jacket you already own that fits well, or go to a men's store to be professionally measured. Contact us by phone or email with any questions.

Chest - Extend your arms straight out from your body. Take a full breath and hold it. Have someone measure you around your chest under your arms. Lower your arms to your side, take a deep breath and measure under your arms. The larger of the two is your chest measurement, which is your jacket size.

Length - Strange but true: Your shoe size will determine your arm length. If you wear a size 9 or smaller, your jacket will be a SHORT. Shoe size 9-11 order a REGULAR. Larger than 11 order a LONG.

* A potential exception to this rule is if you have earned yourself a good size beer gut. If so, you might want to get a relaxed belly measurement as well. If your chest measurement is smaller than your belly measurement, you might want to go with the belly measurement as your jacket size. Your jacket will be looser in the shoulder, but comfortably fit your beer gut. Another way around this is to order the jacket based on your chest and your vest separately based on your waist. 


Shoes - we request your shoe size and width, and a measurement of your foot width and length in inches.  Our shoes are not based on dress shoe sizes for a more comfortable fit and longer wear.
