Border Tartan/Shepherd/The Falkirk Tartan

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 is an old traditional border shepherd’s check made of white wool and black wool, and which was later introduced to the Highlands and formed the basis of many of the estate checks. Also known as ‘The Falkirk Tartan’ because of the discovery of such a weave in the neck of a jar containing Roman coins buried about 260 A.D. The black and white check is woven today as a family tartan for the surname Shepherd tartan. The ‘Northumberland’ tartan, also known as ‘Border’, ‘Border Riever’, and ‘Shepherd’s Check’ predates most Scottish tartans and has long been associated with shepherds of the Border region who were encouraged to move north after the Highland clearances. As early as 1760 the Duke of Northumberland (Percy family) designated this tartan for his personal piper. It was later adopted as the plaid for pipers of The Northumberland.
