Choosing a First Kilt

There are so many Kilt manufacturers out there, it can be hard to pick a right 1st kilt.

You want to be sure to choose a kilt that fits your needs. If you’re wanting a kilt for a wedding, you’ll want to pay for a nice one. There are many places to get a nice kilt for a wedding, I’ll just throw in a plug for my company. King Kilts has done several wedding kilts in family tartans at reasonable prices. Please check with us if you need more than one kilt for a wedding, because when we get into multiple kilts, you’re able to get every other kilt for $55. If you only intend to wear the kilt at the wedding and never again, a rental may make more sense rather than shelling out hundreds of dollars for something that you’re only going to wear once.

If you’re looking at wearing a kilt to the Highland Games, depending on what you’re doing and the rules of the particular festivity, you’ve got a few options. Some games don’t care what you wear as long as it’s a kilt. So, you can buy anything that catches your fancy, Amerikilt, Stillwater Kilts, King Kilts, Utilikilt, pretty much anything will go including Ebay which always has several good kilts available. Others have very specific regulations. You have to wear a family tartan kilt or tartan kilt of some sort. That will limit your choices. If you’re just walking through exhibits, you should be able to wear whatever you want.

If you’re looking to wear a kilt outside these normal kilt wearing occasions, a couple guidelines in choosing a kilt. First of all, wear something you’re confident in. I’ll discuss getting confident in a future post.

If you plan to wear a kilt to the office, my recommendation for at least the first time is to wear a tartan kilt. That’s going to be more readily accepted and recognized as a kilt. Otherwise, buy what you want, but don’t spend a fortune on it. You’re trying something new and dipping your toe in to see if you like it.

My first kilt was a budget kilt now renamed the economy kilt from Kilts N Stuff. It was fairly simple, light, inexpensive, but still gave that kilt feel. There are countless others that will work that are quite similar.
