KILT MEASURING GUIDE
Start with the 1st or waist size; put tape around your body at the point of your body waist or belly button or where you are planning to fasten your kilt. Normally a kilt should be at the belly button, but it’s totally up to you how you want to wear it, So measure the point with normal breath (our kilts has little losing for best fitting) and write on the page either in inches or cm to update in your order.
Note* It will probably be 2 to 4 inches more than your pants size. It is common.
Tip* BIG guys with large bellies may want to wear the kilt around the naval, as it gives a more flattering appearance.
Moving further measure your hips at widest point, it’s very easy to measure for that. Why it’s necessary to give hip size?? It’s an interesting answer, while we manufacture your kilt we must know either you have normal hips size or not!! Because if your hips cannot fit in your kilt that would be so embarrassing and uncomfortable to wear in public. Because we manufacture a made to order kilt so, we take care of each step manufacture.
At 3rd step, you need to measure your kilt’s length which means how long your kilt will hang while standing on your legs, People wear as per their choice, but a kilt should hang till your knee cap (but it’s not a standard at all its totally up to your choice). But be sure that your starting point is from your waist point or where you plan to fasten your kilt. So it will be a length from your waist till your knee cap or what so ever you want. The standard length of kilt or drop length of the kilt is 24” in a male case and 20” in female case, but you are designing your kilt it’s up to you.
Heading to end the kilt size guide the last point is your fell measurement. Don’t know what is fell?? Well, Fell is measured from your point of waist till your hips (in the picture you can easily understand that) some people want that their kilt should stay with their body rather roomy or airy like fittings of pants at hips sp if you will update your fell measurement you can fulfill this requirement as well. Most of the time a Fell measurement is not that necessary because most of the kilts are manufactured as per standard fell measurement which is 5-7 inches as per total length of the kilt.
