Gordon

$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 Gordon tartan is the regimental tartan of the famous Gordon Highlanders and was selected by the Alexander, the 4th Duke from a choice of three submitted by William Forsyth, a weaver and outfitter from the town of Huntly. Forsyth wrote on 15th April 1793 ‘When I had the honour of communing with His Grace the Duke of Gordon, he was desirous to have patterns of the 42nd Regiment plaid with a small yellow stripe properly placed. I imagine the yellow stripes will appear very lively.’ A Gordon website claims that the Duke offered the other two Forsyth samples to Gordon Branch or Cadet Families. The Gordons of Hallhead and Esslemont selected the tartan with three yellow lines and the Gordon-Cumming of Altyre and Gordonstoun chose the tartan with two yellow lines. The earliest known date from a list compiled by D.C. Stewart from Wilsons of Bannockburn letters is 1798.
