OUTFIT HIRE FROM
OUTFIT OWN FROM
The style is your choice. All jackets are available with the option of a five-button waistcoat and your chosen finish.
For a modern look to your outfit wear a Victorian collar shirt with a Ruch tie or if you prefer self-tying, tie down with a stylish Windsor knot.
Your kilt should be worn with the pleats to the rear and the fringes on the right hand side. It is high on the waist, at the tummy button - this is the correct way to wear a kilt as it will allow it to drop down to the top of the knee.
A decorative item which should not be used to pin the kilt aprons together. Place the kilt pin through the stop apron. Positioning of the pin can vary but roughly an inch above the bottom of the kilt and an inch in from the side.
These should be worn through the kilt loops located at the rear and then fastened on the front just above the sporran. The belt is optional when wearing a waistcoat.
The sporran is worn at the front of the kilt with the chain strap going through the loops of the kilt at the rear. It is worn four finger widths from the top of the kilt.
The hose are usually worn two finger widths below the knee with the embroidered top section folded back on it. Traditionally, cream-coloured hose are worn with the kilt; black or grey, however, are considered more contemporary.
Available in tartan to match the kilt or solid colours. The flashes should be worn on the outside of the calves and the garter should be hidden under the fold of the sock.
Often a favourite gift idea for the Best Man or Groom, this can be worn on either leg, tucked into the hose at the side of the calf with the handle of the Sgian Dubh protruding from the hose.
This item is completely down to preference: however it can add more detail and panache. The plaid is worn over the left shoulder with the brooch’s weight helping hold it in place. At a wedding, The Groom or Groom and Best Man may choose to wear plaid and brooch, to give them even more distinction, individuality and prominence.
These kilt shoes have long laces and no tongue. There are many different ways to tie the laces, the traditional method is: hold the laces together and twist 5-6 times then wrap the laces round the back of the leg and back round the front. Tie a knot and leave the tassels dangling at the front.
Amazing service from Kilts4U in East Kilbride. We hired 7 kilts for our wedding in May in the Spirit of Loch Tay Tartan. Everyone commented on how smart the kilts looked and the quality of them was great. Any time we had to go into the shop for an appointment/fitting the service was always brilliant and communication has been great throughout. Would highly recommend and would use again for kilt hire.
A repeat visit for the Duffy clan and it was an absolute delight. My husband set Lee the challenge of trying to identify our tartan…and he didn’t let us down. I now have one happy husband to join my 3 happy sons. Fabulous kilts, amazing people, faultless service. Thank you Lee.
Fantastic service from start to finish. John & Scott helped organise a last minute full kilt hire for my 10 year old son within the week. Everything fitted perfectly and the guys were so helpful. I was clueless about how it should be worn but the video on their YouTube really helped. They made it all very easy and kept in touch. Thank you and I’ll see you again in February. Highly recommend Kilts 4 U East Kilbride
Would highly recommend!! 5 star. Service was fabulous made our day perfect!
5 star service from start to finish. Kilt choice is fantastic with a range of unique kilts that are not available in other kilt hire places. When we went to collect hubbie's kilt the young lad (sorry I didn't get his name) went through everything with my hubbie to make sure it all fitted ok, talking him through how to dress on the day. Would defo recommend and we will definitely use again for kilt hire. 👏🏻🏴⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Had a great experience with kilts4u hillington shop. They made everything so easy and were always so helpful and easy to talk to whenever we had a query or a worry. Quality of kilt was great and instruction video helped us all out!
We hired our wedding party kilts from the Hillington branch and they were fantastic from start to finish. Would 100% recommend them and will definitely use them again, coming from Fife it was worth the travel to get such a lovely kilt and brilliant customer service. Thank you
Thanks to everyone at Kilts4U for all the help when organising our wedding. Such an amazing choice of kilts. There was a few amendments and a pandemic in between all our wedding changes and everything was dealt with amazingly. Scott, who we dealt with was so professional and friendly. The kilts were lovely and everyone looked so handsome. Definitly recommend Kilts 4 U to anyone getting married x
Chloe at the newly opened Prestwick shop was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. Great quality kilts and despite moving shops and all the chaos that could have brought, everything still went smoothly. Would recommend.
My now husband has an amazing experience in your East Kilbride store with the help of Scott. Scott made the whole process easy enjoyable and stress free! Scott made sure the groom stood out in our special day and we have received the best compliments about the kilts since the day! So thank you Scott and thank you kilts4u😃 (Tartan is spirit of loch tay)
The best in the business by MILES! Staff are all very friendly and to say they go over and above is an understatement. First class service and quality.
