How to Measure for a Kilt
Before taking the customer’s measurements, request that they remove any items from their pockets. Stand at the side of the customer when taking measurements. Measure twice!
Measurement Form is online!
(A) waist (taken over a thin shirt only) - find the bottom of the rib cage and the top of the hip bone. Place the tape measure between those two points and measure around the roundest part of the waist. This measurement should be taken taut. If the gentleman has a generous belly, measure quite taut (pull 1” tight).
(B) hip to knee - measure from top of hip bone down to the top of the knee cap. Note: If the customers prefers to wear his kilt to the middle of his knee cap, please specify and measure accordingly.
(C) round seat - measure around the roundest part of the seat, this measurement should be taken with approx 1" of slackness on the tape measure.
(D) total length incl. rise - Measure from the bottom of the rib cage to the top of the knee. Or, if customer intends to wear his kilt to mid knee, please specify and measure accordingly. A kilt is worn higher than trousers, approximately 2-2.5”above the hipbone. This measurement will include the “rise” of the kilt. A 2” rise above the hip is typical for most men.
Include customer’s height and weight.
