General Questions

Q.How do I wear my Sport Kilt?

  • Undo the Velcro, wrap the kilt around your waist or hips, and fasten the Velcro. The flat (non-pleated) part of the kilt should be squarely in the middle (front) of your torso with the Sport Kilt logo on the right side.

    When you wrap your kilt around you, be sure to center the flat panel squarely across your front. (Most important! The pleats always go around your backside.)

Q.How do I measure for a kilt?

  •  

    You can measure around your waist with a cloth measuing tape and plug that size into our size chart here:

    http://www.sportkilt.com/size_chart.html

    We recommend going by your actual waist measurement and not your pants size.  Your pants size is usually 2" smaller than your actual waist measurement.  If you don't have a measuring tape, just add 2" to your pants size and plug that number into our size chart for your ideal size. 

    For example, if you wear size 34 pants, then add two (36) and a 36 will fit best in our size large Sport Kilt. 

    Men with a 28-32" waist over 5'10" should go with a medium-long, and under 5'10" a medium will be a good length.

Q.How soon can I get an Original Sport Kilt?

  • All of our Original Sport Kilt model kilts are usually in stock, so we can get a kilt shipped out within 1-2 business days (women's kilts take a little longer). How fast it gets to you depends on what method of shipping you choose.  If you need your order by a certain date, let us know in the "order notes" field when checking out, and we'll do our very best to meet your deadline. 

    When you add things like leather buckle straps, sewn down pleats, pockets, fringe, or belt loops, we send your kilt over to our custom shop to have those options added, which typically takes 3-2 days. 

    Works model Sport Kilts typically take 3-5 days for us to add all the custom options you select. 

    When you give us a P.O. box as your shipping address, we can only ship it with the US Post Office, and not FedEx.

Q.How soon can I get a Works kilt?

  • We start production of your Works kilt the following day after you place your order. Normally they take about 3-5 business days to make. So, a Works kilt can be ready in 3-5 days. How fast it gets to you after that depends on what method of shipping you choose. 

    If you need your order by a certain date, let us know in the "order notes" field, and we'll do our best to meet your deadline.  Also, shipping to a P.O. box takes a couple days longer than a regular address because we only ship with the Post Office a couple times a week, not every day like our UPS shipments.

Q.What accessories should I get?

  • Complete the look!
    The best accessories for your Sport Kilt

    -Sporran: The small pouch that hangs directly in front of your kilt was the medieval Highlander’s wallet. They range in style from casual leather to formal fur.

    -Kilt “hose” (socks): Leave those ankle socks at the gym. Kilts look best with tall socks that come above your calf. A nice cuff on top with flashes is even better. Speaking of…

    -Flashes: These small flaps of fabric poke out of the cuff on your kilt hose. Sure, flashes are purely decorative, but they give a great finishing touch to your outfit.

Q.What is the Sport Kilt material made of?

  • We use a special 8oz yarn-dyed poly/viscose material that is machine washable, holds a pleat well, has a nice swing and drape, is non-itchy and great for sports in all of our tartan/plaid kilts.

    Our Commando kilts, and some of the specialty fabric camo kilts use a poly/cotton printed twill.

Q.What is your return policy?

  • We can accept returns on stock items for up to 30 days from your purchase.  There is a $10 re-stocking fee for us to re-press returned kilts.  However, custom kilts made just to your measurements like Ultimate, Commando, and custom length kilts, we can not accept returns on so please measure carefully!  On many occasions we can alter your kilt for a small fee if it doesn't fit you just right, however, we can rarely ever make a kilt longer once it has been cut to a certain length.   Other items we do consider to be custom are Works, Original Sport Kilts, Hiking Kilts and Women's kilts with added custom features such as belt loops in your choice of size, leather buckle straps, fringe, sewn down pleats, and pockets.  If your kilt doesn't fit you just right, please let us know!
