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.

The level of service, the quality of the finished product, the attention to detail when making the outfit and the customer service is literally the best I have ever received in any place I have ever visited. I will definitely be recommending this place to everyone.
I would just like to thank everyone at Kilts 4 u Hillington, the service I received was fantastic. the help I received on picking a Kilt package for a wedding in Budapest was second to none. Also the quality of the outfits from Shoes to Kilt was exceptional. The lady who measured me up got it spot on, the whole outfit fitted perfectly and was very comfortable to wear. I would strongly recommend Kilts 4 u to anyone that's looking to hire Kilts of superb design and quality, thanks again.
The service from start to finish was incredible. Kathryn and the team are superstars. Everything happened as they said it would and the selection and quality of kilts are incredible. It has been a pleasure so much so I am thinking of going back for a made to measure next year.
We visited Kilts 4 U after meeting them at the SECC. We decided to have a bespoke kilt made and the service from start to finish was exceptional. The staff were friendly, helpful and we were never rushed in to making any decisions. We would definitely recommend them.
