If you’re looking for tartan flashes to complement your 8 yard, made to measure kilt, we recommend ordering at the same time to ensure that they are an exact match for your chosen kilt!
Waist Take a firm (not tight) measurement at the navel. This is normally 2 inches higher than your hip bone.
Chest Size Take a loose measurement under the arms and over the shoulder blades.
Height The most important measurement! Ensure this is correct.
Kilt Length Measure from the top of the hip bone to the middle of the knee cap. You will need someone to help you take this measurement.
Sett Pattern - This is the most common way to have your kilt made. This is where the tartan on the front mirrors the tartan on the back.
Line Pattern - This is more of a military style where if there is a prominent line in the tartan this is seen down every pleat on the back of the kilt.
