Important: When taking measurements you will need someone to help as it is required that you stand straight and face forward with your feet together. Please do not look down.
The Waist Measurement should be taken at the level of the navel. Take a firm (not tight) measurement. This is usually taken 2 inches higher than your hip bone or 2 inches higher from where your trousers are usually worn.
The Seat Measurement is a firm measurement over trousers at the widest part of your hip. Ensure that your pockets are empty and your feet are kept together. (Only applicable to kilt making – not kilt hire)
The length measurement should be from the top of the hip bone to the top of the kneecap or mid knee as required. Remember that the kilt should not be worn too long. We also need your height and chest measurements.
Please note your proper height is the most important measurement to have exact.
By far the easiest and most reliable way of taking a jacket measurement is to look at a label from one of your *formal jackets that fits you perfectly and use the same measurement.
