Our J.Higgins Value Kilt is perfect for our value minded customers and made by our own kilt makers here in Kansas City since 1983. The value kilt is made with less yardage than our traditional kilts and have fewer and wider pleats as well. Every value kilt is made with authentic tartans using 100% new wool material imported from Scotland. They have 3 buckles/straps and 2 belt loops for your belt. We fringe the front apron as well. We do not put lining in the Value kilt. We do put hems in these when we feel the mill selvedge is too wavy. Matching flashes are also available here: https://www.jhiggins.net/flashes/
This is a custom garment that cannot be returned. Because we make these value kilts to order, please know that delivery is approximately 8 to 10 weeks. This is a general estimate.
Use only a cloth tape measure when taking kilt measurements. Do not use rulers, or metal tape measures. However, we can copy a current total length if you have an existing kilt already. Please mention this in the comments section of your order. Check out our video and measurement guide below for helpful suggestions on how to measure for your kilt:

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 pleating 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 strongly suggest you pleat to the sett as pleating to the line can make a stark difference. First time kilt wearers should maybe avoid pleating to the line.

Excellent quality, excellent craftsmanship, and very professional fit. Getting material from Scotland took longer than I expected but staff members were always professional and courteous. After receiving, seeing and wearing my kilt, it was worth every second of waiting. I couldn’t be happier. I HIGHLY recommend Higgins and any future needs will be purchased from them. Thank you and very nice job.

I have had this kilt for a few months now and the quality is great. When I ordered it they made sure the measurements were correct, showing that they take great care of their customers. I highly recommend this product and the J Higgins team for their great products and customer service.

I will wear a Kilt 3-5x per year. I originally had a Sport Kilt that I used for casual and dress functions. However, now that I am getting married, i decided to order a "nicer" kilt. J Higgins has impressed. I purchased the "value" kilt simply due to me not wearing one that often. When I subitted my order, they realized my measuremtns were off. And they were. I acquired the assistance of a Kily novice, but his Kilt maker user different measuremnts. Make sure to watch thier video. The Kilt is beautiful and very well crafted. J Higgin kept me up to date during the entire process.

I searched every kilt maker that was online, to get the best kilt at the best price. If you are looking for a specific tartan kilt JHiggins LTD is the kiltmaker to hire! I am quite pleased with everything they did for me, including scrap pieces of tartan, I requested for cuff links. My tartan cuff links also are great thanks to JHiggins!
