I've always wanted to get myself a kilt even tho I've been made fun of at work and in with my friends for wanting to wear what they call a "skirt" lol

The problem is where I live there is practically no where at all to even look for anything like this. Anybody know of any place or website to go to get a Kilt for less than an arm and a leg. i don't want a cheap cheap kilt but I'd also like to not spend all my honeymoon money on finding one lol

any help would be appreciated smile.gif

Have you tried The Renaisssance Store? I don't know about their kilts but I have order other things from there and was very happy with what I got. You can order on line.
Renstore.com
I just looked at the catalog for one and it's $94.95. You get 5 yards of unpleateed fabric that makes into a full kilt with a shoulder wrap, comes with instructions on how to fold and pleat it. Hope this helps

Googling kilts is your best source of information. Our Band kilts are 16oz fabric 8 yards and heavy. You will pay anywhere from 400-600 depending on supplier. Go to euspba.org calender events for higlhand games in your area.There is usually a couple of kilt suppliers at the games. Good luck

A real kilt has to come from Scotland!

How about Scottishkilts.net, they have kilts for $240 (whether that is cheap is a question for you)
Of course then you would need a sporran at the very least to go with the kilt.

By the way, ignore (ignorant) people calling it a skirt, the people who matter will appreciate it. thumbs_up.gif

I spent about 2 hours last night viewing many of the "Mock-U-Mercials" there. Some are good, some not as much- but definitely entertaining. smile.gif

Sportlilt is not too bad if you don't mind the company patch. I would suggest ordering a regular one before you decide on buying one of their "The works" kilt just because exchanging sizes is easier. You can also order a sash for over the shoulder for about $30. With a little work it can look like a full kilt.

Don't order the one with buttons on it from museum replicas. And I would avoid Clansman Knitwear if you need it in a hurry. Customer service has its extreme ups and downs in that company.

I just sent this to Shenaniganz via PM, but for anyone else looking at cheap kilts:
user posted image
That's me on the left in the pic (with the cigar) in a USA Kilt
That's my friend Josh on the right wearing my camo UtiliKilt. Both of them were suggested previously here, and both will run about $110-$120 for the kilt. For either one, you'll want a belt. With the USA Kilt you'll also want a sporran, you can pass on that with the UtiliKilt.
Either way, for about $150 or less you're good to go.
For a "first kilt" you may like the pockets on the UtiliKilt.

P.S. yes, you heard me right.. I let one of my friends borrow a kilt. What can I say- I've known him for over 20 years.

The single most useful bit of advice anyone can give you regarding kilts:
If you plan to wear it "proper" make sure you get some BodyGlide anti-chafing stick.
There are numerous online drugstores that carry it, and many kilt sellers will also.
Warning: graphic but really necessary description follows!!





















Apply it to your thighs where your scrotum will contact your them. Else you *will* chafe and *will* really regret the next couple of days.
