The Ghillie Shirt is a great casual alternative to the kilt jacket. It's very light and breathable which makes it a favourite for Ceilidhs and also events in hot climates. This outfit comes with your choice of a white, cream or black ghillie shirt made of 100% polyester. Leather neck tie is included.
The kilt, which is made in Scotland, is made from 8 yards of 100% worsted wool. The kilt is fully hand-stitched except for the pleating, which is machine stitched. There are 3 sizing straps, 2 around the waist and 1 around the hips for better shaping round the body which adds to the ‘swing’ of the pleats. There are 2 belts loops at the back of the kilt and 2 hanging loops.
Please note that some tartans have additional charges due to their cloth costing more to produce.
Also included in this package are durable leather brogues with long laces, kilt hose, tartan flashes, replica sgian dubh, kilt pin, belt and buckle and black semi dress sporran.

Our fully handmade kilts can be ‘re-made’ in the future which means the kilt can stay in your family for generations. ‘Re-making’ allows us to open the kilt back up into 8 yards of material and completely re-size it to fit another set of measurements. An extremely worthwhile investment.
If you are placing an order online, we will contact you to discuss the measurements and make sure your sizes are perfect. To measure yourself, here is our measurement guide.

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.
