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

This clan is descended from Celtic Royalty, the Strathclyde/Gododdin Welsh.

This tartan has also been misappropriated as ‘Rob Roy.’ This tartan existed before individual tartans became associated to particular clans perhaps because it is one of the easiest setts to weave. There are those who question MacGregors’ claim to this tartan as there are portraits of monarchs and other Highlanders wearing this sett. How and where this particular sett came into existence is not known. There is a famous painting of Norman Macleod of Macleod wearing it and yet it is very definitely ascribed to Clan Gregor. It is possible that due to its easy weave and striking sett that it was adopted by MacGregors during proscriptions. Whislt the banning of tartan in towns would have been easy, such a policy would have been very difficult to enforce in the wild and remote highlands. Miss Jean Rollo, who lived in Edinburgh in 1746, made it a point to wear a tartan gown in the Canongate in defiance of the law.

Whatever the history, it came to be regarded as MacGregor tartan This tartan has also been misappropriated as ‘Rob Roy.’ Kenneth MacLeay in his book ‘Highlanders of Scotland’ written in 1870 states: The famed Rob Roy, was a cadet of the Glengyle family.

DW Stewart in his book Old and Rare Scottish Tartans says:

“The pattern is accepted by sound authorities as the MacGregor pattern. There are fine examples of it in the collection of tartans made by the Highland Society of London 1816/17 labelled and sealed ‘The MacGregor tartan for undress ordinary clothing. The seal and arms of ‘Sir John MacGregor Murray of MacGregor, Baronet.’ Letters dated 1792 and 1794 were sent with patterns to Wilson of Bannockburn, the great tartan outfitters of the day, for an order.”
