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!

This is the official California tartan. The tartan’s blue background reflects the sky, the Pacific Ocean, and the state’s many rivers and mountains. The green reflects the forests of the Sierras, and the many fields, forests, and parks. The red, gold, and blue signify the arts, sciences, and industry of the people of the State of California. There is also a hint of the Muir family tartan in its origin, in celebration of his many contributions to California.

A wonderful kilt that celebrates the history of the State of California.

    Good price
    Very comfortable.

  2. Damn Near Kilt ’em

    Absolutely love it. Wife hates it but she won’t hike with me so to hell with her. Ventilation and freedom of movement are unparalleled. It took some time to pull the trigger and wear it, worrying about what others thought, but once I did there was no turning back. So now, with pity, I look upon those poor, uneducated suckers still wearing shorts and pants. Thanks Sport Kilt.

    A successful wardrobe addition
    Some guys contra dance wearing skirts. I decided to try a kilt instead, for a less sweaty, freer moving, and different look and feel. Success ! It looks great, and is easy to wear. Perhaps , now that I know what a basic one is like, I might get one with more pockets, or a sporran, in case I wear it outside the dance hall. Sewn pleats might spare my wife some work, too. Made in U.S.A., too. This purchase was a wise choice.

    CA Sports Kilt
    I received my California Sports Kilt just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. I wore it making the rounds in Southern California and got nothing but compliments.

    California Dreamin!
    I love this kilt! I’ve worn it several times and it looks and fits great!

    great purchase
    I’m glad I got this. It’s a good price and a good product –comfortable and works with or without all the traditional gear. It’s also lightweight, which helps in areas much, much warmer than Scotland.

    I’ve already recommended the kilt (and site) to a friend.

    Great Kilt- Super Comfortable
    I purchased the kilt to wear on Halloween, but enjoyed the look and feel and have worn since. Fits well, very durable. Happy with quality and order turn around time.

    Sport Kilt Review
    I was really impressed by the comfort of this kilt. My brother and I both wore them all weekend long at a Celtic Festical in which we compete. I can see myself wearing this kilt for hiking, and all sorts of other activities. Great Job!
