Sewn-Down Pleats

All Sport Kilts are pleated, but you can give your kilt that custom fitted shape with a leaner profile by having us sew down the pleats.

The first 4-5 inches of pleats (measured from the waistband) are sewn down along the knife edge of the pleat (vertically). This provides a more refined look and makes for easier care and pressing.

PLEASE NOTE: We cannot accept returns for customized goods, i.e., belt loops, sewn pleats, custom length. Please make sure of your measurements!

Buckle Closure

You can add two 1" wide black leather straps and nickle-plated buckles to the opening end of your Sport Kilt. A functional, traditional looking adjustable double strap.  You can also choose a Nylon Buckle Strap option as well. 

While all Sport Kilts are secured with Velcro at the waistband, you can give your kilt that custom look (and added security) by adding buckles and straps.

Also note: If you opt for the Buckles and straps, we HIGHLY recommend adding the sewn-down-pleats option as they compliment each other.

Belt Loops

Although you don't need a belt to hold up your kilt, we'll be glad to add 'em so you can wear your favorite belt.

Belt loops can also be used to thread your sporran "chain-belt" through. This is the traditional use of belt loops on a kilt.

Please note: We cannot accept returns for customized goods, i.e., belt loops, sewn pleats, custom length. Please measure carefully!


Now you can have us add 2 hidden side pockets to your Sport Kilt. You won’t even know they’re there unless you’re looking for them, or you’ve got your hands in your pockets.

A great custom option for those that have to have pockets on their kilts!

Please allow us a couple of days to customize your kilt with pockets before your order ships.


Now you can have the opening side of your Sport Kilt fringed for extra flair!

Custom Length

Use a measuring tape, instead of using your pant size. This will determine your waist measurement.

The ideal kilt length: While kneeling, measure from the top of your waist (where you'd wear your kilt) to the floor. Some say your kilt should just brush against the ground when you are kneeling. Of course personal preference is the rule! Have it YOUR way.

Note:  Ultimate and Commando kilts tend to sit higher on the waist (more like a traditional kilt) than our standrard Sport Kilts. Therefore, you may want to add an extra inch or two in length to compensate. If in doubt, be assured that ninety five percent of the time, our standard size Medium-long, large, XL, abd XXL length of 22.5 inches will fit most guys 5' 10" and 6' 2" tall. 

Please Note: We cannot accept returns for customized goods, i.e., belt loops, sewn pleats, custom length. Measure carefully, please!

One of the boldest tartans ever, clan Buchanan!
The Clan Motto: Clarior hinc honos, “Brighter, hence the honour”, just like the tartan.

Clan Buchanan can be traced back as far as the 11th Century when Anselan O Kyan received the lands of Buchanan, east of Loch Lomond. Some of the septs of this ancient clan are Colman, Gibson, Gilbert, MacKinley, MacCormack, Masterson, Morris and Watson.

Aye, lad, “Walk proudly” in this bold tartan kilt!

    Comfortable for hiking!
    I bought the Sport Kilt to wear while lead hikes at the Family Nature Summit in Maine/New Hampshire this Summer in July. I have worn it working out in the gym, I’ve treated it with permethrin for ticks, and it should work out great! It is very comfortable and the pockets I had put in will be great for some small things that I need to carry while hiking.

    Kilt Perfection and Save Money!!
    Ordering my Buchanan Kilt from the Sport Kilt folks was one of the best deals I’ve encountered. The kilt fit, ease of putting it on, and the excellent colors of the Buchanan tartan are perfect (I’ve stopped wearing my other kilt which I paid $600). The ordering process, delivery and follow-up have been terrific. I highly recommend ordering from Sport Kilt.

    A very comfortable kilt!
    I wore this kilt to a fireworks celebration on July 4th. The weather was brutally hot, but I was extremely comfortable all day. Getting several compliments on the great looking kilt didn’t hurt either!
