gents kilts Edinburgh

TRADITIONAL
Traditional kilts are made using 8 yards of 100% wool worsted fabric, in either a 13oz medium or 16oz full weight fabric. The weight refers to ‘ounces per yard’. This ensures the pleats stay sharp and the kilt has the full swing you would expect. Every pleat is sewn by hand, and every ‘Geoffrey’ kilt is planned and sewn by the same kilt maker from start to finish.
Made with a 2″ rise – the kilt sits 2″ above the natural waist – to accommodate a kilt jacket or doublet, which are traditionally shorter in style.

CONTEMPORARY
As with our traditional kilts, these are hand sewn as standard, but available in a huge range of fabrics. Coloured and patterned linings, internal and external pockets, the possibilities are endless! A great way to customise your kilt.

MACHINE SEWN (Hand Finished)
Similar to our traditional kilts, this is given the same attention to detail, but with machine sewn pleats, and hand finished. This cuts down on the time taken to physically sew the kilt, which is reflected in the price.

CASUAL
Made from 5 or 6 yards of material – as the name suggest, these kilts are for more casual use.
Machine sewn, and made to sit lower on the hips without the traditional rise, this would be best worn with a T-shirt or sweater for more casual events such as football/rugby matches.
