Product Description

Your J. Higgins Kilt is finely tailored from premium Scottish wool by our own kilt makers here in Kansas City since 1983.  Each kilt is carefully crafted from authentic tartans imported from Scotland.  Don't be concerned if your measured waist size is bigger than your pant size.  This is normal.  Your waist size will ALWAYS be bigger than your pant size you buy! We can also make matching tartan flashes (listed under Footwear). 

Our kilt makers will tailor your kilt to have 3 buckles/straps, belt loops and double fringe on the front apron.  Each kilt is fully lined in the waist.

NOTE: This is a custom garment that cannot be returned.  Because we make these kilts to order, please know that delivery is approximately 8 to 10 weeks, but we can be somewhat flexible meeting due dates, so please email John at johnh@jhiggins.net or call us at 1-800-426-7268 to discuss your timeline needs, and we'll try and work with you.

NOTE: Price will change depending on sizes submitted.  Price ranges are as follows: 

7 yard kilt (Hips up to 37") $400

8 yard kilt (Hips 38 to 46") $425

9 yard kilt (Hips 47 to 55") $495

We believe our kilts are among the best kilts made in the world.  Let us make yours.

We want to introduce you to Drum Major Jason Paguio.  Jason is a 5 time World Drum Major Champion.  Here he is at the 2016 World Championship wearing his J. Higgins Napier kilt and Class A Honor Guard jacket.  We were truly honored to tailor Jason's kilt and jacket.  Jason tells us his outfit was the only one with zero dress fault deductions in the contest.

NoteUse only a cloth tape measure when taking kilt measurements.  Do not use rulers, or metal tape measures!  Please check out our video and measurement guide below for helpful suggestions.

There are two ways to pleat your kilt in the back.  You can either pleat it to the sett so the tartan is shown front and back in the same way, or pleat it to the line so that we choose one line to emphasize which then makes the pleat pattern look completely different than the front.  Some tartans don't lend themselves to pleating to the line.  We show you an example of both in the photos below using the Royal Stewart tartan.  If you're in doubt, we suggest you pleat to the sett.  You can email John at johnh@jhiggins.net to learn more about pleating.
