  • Note - The kilt photographed was made hemmed - to stop neatly on the brown block, as the current bolt of cloth is woven with a tucked selvedge. The designer felt this finish resulted in the best looking kilt (which is actually a matter of opinion!) - Contact me to enquire further if you wish to order an Angels' Share kilt without a hemmed finish.

MEASUREMENTS PROVIDED BY THE CUSTOMER - To make your kilt, 3 sizes are required.

Also please use a flexible fabric tape measure.

It's best to have someone else help you measure, and remove any bulky items from your pockets.

- - -

1/ KILT WAIST (for a traditional kilt)

Measure snugly around your waist just above the height of your belly button/navel (which should be about horizontal to the top of the hip bone). This should not be a loose measurement, but tight, as you don't want the kilt to fall down.

The larger gentleman may require a measurement much higher than the belly button, so the kilt waist is secured above the waist girth. (Please seek the assistance from an experienced tailor/kilt-maker if you are unsure).

The kilt sits a lot higher than your trousers, so this measurement will most likely be bigger than your trouser measurements.

Do not breathe in or hold your breathe.

- - -


With feet together, measure around the broadest part of your hips. Allow two fingers under the tape measure, so this is a slightly loose measurement, allowing for a swing in the kilt.

- - -

3/ LENGTH (Kilt drop)

Kneel on the floor, keeping a straight back looking forward. Measure just above the belly button (or previously measured kilt waist position) straight down to the floor, then deduct a half inch). This should result in a kilt length mid way on the knee. It is very important to have another person take this measurement for you as doing this yourself will result in leaning forward, and an incorrect measurement.

If a military style kilt length is required shorten the length by a further half inch.


TIPS ...and to check your length measurement

For the average build of man: When standing, imagine a straight line across your body at your waist position, about an inch above your belly button/navel (at the top of the hip bone).


Then drop a tape at a right angle to this line, and measure down to middle of the knee cap, this is the length of a traditional kilt. A military kilt length would be slightly shorter, and finish at the top of the knee cap.


Your kilt drop length will depend on how you want to wear your kilt, and how high you want it to sit on your waist. Standard kilt should always be worn to the middle of your kneecap, while military kilts are worn a little shorter, to the top of the kneecap. If you want to wear your kilt with a short jacket, such as a Prince Charlie, you may want to have your kilt sit higher on the waist, possibly by an extra inch or so. So bear that in mind when measuring your kilt waist size position.

- - -

Where you wear your kilt is personal preference, however a standard kilt is worn around the navel (or slightly above) down to midway on the kneecap, and remember your kilt waist size is likely to be larger than your trouser size.

- - -

If you are unsure, please have yourself measured by an experienced tailor or kilt-maker.

NOTE - Please ensure sizes supplied are correct and accurate - as custom made kilt orders - to supplied sizes -  cannot be returned unless there is a significant defect in the garment.

- - -


Normally, your kilt length will correspond with the following guides. If it's significantly different, try taking the measurements again. If it's slightly different, then it could be down to preference or body shape.


Height 5' 6" to 5' 7"
22" to 22.5" kilt length


Height 5' 8 to 5' 9"
23" to 23.5" kilt length


Height 5' 10" to 5' 11"
24" to 24.5" kilt length

Great tartan and wonderful service!

It took a long time for me to find where to get the Angels' Share, and then what to do with it. Stevie offered to have a kilt made, promised by late fall, and it arrived at the end of August! It is one beautiful kilt, with flashes, necktie, and bow tie to go along with it. During the process, Stevie had occasion to contact me for clarifications and updates - rare in these days. My next heritage kilt will be another Steve Sims tartan - for sure! (Design to be selected at a later date.)

I am in love with my new kilt. It is spectacular and a gorgeous addition to my wardrobe. The customer service experience throughout the entire process from start to finish was over the top. The owner Stevie went above and beyond on my order and emailed each step of the process. I will definitely recommend The Tartan Artisan to other people.
