How to wear a kilt outfit correctly by the kilt hire company

PaulSwadzba | 26/10/2015 09:11:40

kilt-wearing

Its been a while since I posted this last, but its a reminder that needs said EVERY week especially to the lads just getting a kilt on for the first time. So if you know of someone that's wearing a  kilt for the first time, send them this link

Here a few basic rules & starting points

Pants on first, yes, underpants, underwear,if you don't your going to look might silly standing with your mates bollock naked, cover your bits with a pair.

Slide on your socks next, they are just like football socks, get them right up & slip those garter flashes on, they go directly under your knee in the smallest part & then fold the sock over the top.

The sgian dubh, black knife, slides into your sock up to the hilt, you put that in the sock on the side you write with.

Now the shoes, how to tie the lace is available here “Tie my laces”

Now slip your shirt & tie or cravat on, that bit hopefully you will find pretty easy.

The kilt is next, the main thing is that the kilt waist has to sit above your belly button, place the pleated section to your back side, take the right front side of the kilt by the strap & place across the front of your body & push the leather strap through the waist hole on the left side of the kilt & pull tight, put the buckle through the strap, note the hole number. Now take the left side of the kilt & place across the front of your body, push the top leather strap through the top buckle on the right side & in the same numbered hole as the inside strap. If you are lucky enough to have a seat strap & buckle, do the same thing, but this time, don't strap the kilt as tight.

The next thing for the kilt is to ensure that is centred on your body, in the main all kilts have a symmetrical pattern as you can see on the kilt above. The most prominent colour is the blue vertical stripe, therefore the middle stripe is the centre of the kilt.

Sporran is next, there are two straps on the sporran like a giant watch strap, on the kilt there are normally two belt loops & each one of the straps goes through the rear of the kilt loops & fastens like a watch strap. The sporran centres up to the kilt & the top of the sporran should be around 4 inches (10cm) below the top of the kilt, or when you get the waistcoat on, should be about an inch below the bottom of the peaks. If you wear a belt, then the sporran should be about an inch (25cm) below the bottom the belt. 

After all the above it should be a simple case of sliding the waistcoat on & fasten the buttons, slipping the jacket on next. If you need to fasten the jacket, then the correct button to do on a three button jacket is to fasten the centre button. (that's the button on your waistline & the jacket is shaped to show your shape to the best)

Best of all is when you collect your kilt, come into the store & try your kilt outfit on before your function, that way you ensure that

1. It fits

2. You know how to wear it

3. You have a smooth & easy function

4. Every woman on the planet loves you
