Black Watch

$99.00$165.00

These kilts are custom made to size with adjustable straps so you have room if you need it. Make sure to measure properly as there are no returns! Measure from your TRUE waist .. just about the middle at the belly button or just below your belly button… that is where the waist is and where you SHOULD wear your kilt. DO NOT wear your kilt at the hip waist (fun fact: all men’s trousers used to be at the traditional real waist). Take a measuring tape and go around your middle and read what it says on the tape. The average length of kilts are 24 inches long, but if you are shorter or extra tall they can be longer or shorter. Take a measure taking hold of it from your true waist and let it dangle down to about just above your knee; it can go a wee further to the middle of your knee but personally I would not do this.
All kilts come with belt loops and hangers if you so choose to hang up your kilts.
Please be accurate as possible before submitting as there are NO refunds on kilts.

Description

The source of the regiment’s name is uncertain. In 1725, following the Jacobite rebellion of 1715, General George Wade was authorised by George I to form six “watch” companies to patrol the Highlands of Scotland, three from Clan Campbell, one from Clan Fraser of Lovat, one from Clan Munro and one from Clan Grant. These were to be “employed in disarming the Highlanders, preventing depredations, bringing criminals to justice, and hindering rebels and attainted persons from inhabiting that part of the kingdom.” The force was known in Gaelic as Am Freiceadan Dubh, “the dark” or “black watch.”

This epithet may have come from the uniform plaids of dark tartan with which the companies were provided. Other theories have been put forward; for instance, that the name referred to the “black hearts” of the pro-government militia who had sided with the “enemies of true Highland spirit”, or that it came from their original duty in policing the Highlands, namely preventing “blackmail” (Highlanders demanding extortion payments to spare cattle herds)

This is according to the Clan Chief of Campbell the only official Tartan of Campbell but others do not agree with the chief.
