How to Buy a Kilt Online with R.G. Hardie


Buying a kilt online can seem daunting prospect, but follow this guide and we’ll make it as easy as possible for you. Have any questions? Just drop us a line using the contact form.


All you need to supply us with are four measurements. We suggest getting someone to help take these though!

  1. Waist: the size around your waist at your belly button (kilts sit much higher than normal trousers, so won't match your trouser size). Kilt straps on this kilt are set with an allowance of 0.5" tighter and 1.5" looser.
  2. Seat: the size around the widest point around your seat (bum)
  3. Kilt Length: the measurement between the top of your hip - in line with your belly button – and the top or middle of your knee. 
  4. Height: this will help us check that the measurements you’ve given are about right.

Then you can choose your tartan. We source tartans from all the major mills in Scotland, so you should have no problem finding the one you want. Almost every clan and kindred of old Scotland is available, but if you’re looking for something else, there’s plenty more to choose from. You can use our tartan finder database to help you.


Do you need your kilt to match your bands? Just let us know if you have any special requests for pleats in a specific pattern, or for the apron to be centred in a certain way.
