Where To Buy A Kilt In Edinburgh

We will be visiting Scotland next month and I know my husband would like to buy a kilt as a souvenir. I understand that they can be a bit pricey, so I was wondering if there was any place that anybody could recommend with good prices, so that we don't necessarily get stuck in a complete tourist trap? We will be in (ta && ta.queueForLoad ? ta.queueForLoad : function(f, g)document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', f);)(function()ta.trackEventOnPage('postLinkInline', 'impression', 'postLinks-40746358', '');, 'log_autolink_impression');Edinburgh for a couple nights, but also will have visitied Drumnadrochit and Stonehaven areas previously if there might be a better place in one of those areas.

where to buy a kilt in edinburgh

real Kilt will cost in the region of 400 and there are many good companies that will make them,however these companies also sell ex rental Kilts at reasobable prices (ie 100+) so worth googling Kilt hire edinburgh and see whats available.

Shops outside Edinburgh would be cheaper, however, proper well made kilts are not going to be at bargain prices. I agree about the ex-hire, but there are also some Vintage Shops you could try... Here is one

Also as you will be in Stonehaven have a look at the shops in Aberdeen, not so touristy. Forget Drumnadrochit another very very touristy place as Inverness would be your nearest place to get a kilt and they have all the same tacky tourist shops with the really cheaply made kilts as Edinburgh.

The Old Town Weaving Mill is a large souvenier shop, with Geoffrey Tailor Highland Crafts on the bottom floor. They stock a large selection - the largest selection that I could find that was ready made in Edinburgh, with varying price points and quality, such as an inexpensive viscose kilt, to a heavy 16 oz. wool weight. They had from mini-skirt to hostess length for the ladies.

I purchased a ready made wool kilt here, then ordered one custom made as they were out of stock on another Tartan and length that I'd wanted. It arrived at my home in Canada about 6 weeks later, beautifully made in 14 ounce wool, and for the length I'd chosen - 28", about $300.00 Canadian - but this price will also depend on the Tartan you choose, weight of the fabric, how many yards of fabric in your kilt...the salesman will help you find or order what you are looking for.

Additionally, I later ordered online from them, a 'kilted skirt' - which has less fabric and was lighter in weight for summer wear, and that arrived in about 7 weeks time - I am delighted with their quality and service.

Elsewhere in town are several other good quality stores for kilts and blazer/jackets, with slightly different syles and fit, and especially wool scarves: some in the High Street area mixed in with the cheaper offerings at souvenier shops- everyone can find something at their price point.

There are a variety of kilt stores that sell custom made-to-measure kilts in either acrylic or wool. These online stores sometimes also have a physical storefront that you can visit to buy their products. There are also a variety of travelling kilt vendors that typically have booths at your local Celtic festival or Scottish Highland Games. Because kilts are niche products, people often overlook certain considerations about buying a kilt from these two different sources. The division between online and in person may not be perfect. Buying a kilt at a kilt store that allows customers to order a custom kilt might more closely resemble ordering a kilt online, so apply the considerations that best fit your situation. Read below to see which option is best for you.

Atlanta Kilts was one of the earliest online stores that rented and sold kilts in the USA. However, now there are a variety of options for buying a kilt online. It is important to buy a kilt from a store that specializes in selling kilts. General e-commerce platforms usually sell cheap kilts that fit poorly and degrade quickly, so we always recommend buying a kilt from experienced kilt vendors.

When George IV visited Edinburgh in 1822, Full Highland Dress was worn by almost everybody including King George himself thanks to the efforts of Sir Walter Scott. The kilt then became quite definitely the distinctive national dress of Scotland.

We are thrilled that the kilt is enjoying resurgence in contemporary fashion. The kilt is now featured in more formal occasions such as weddings, and Scottish functions, and is also found at Scottish Games throughout the United States as well as high school proms, social occasions, sporting events and in everyday wardrobe.

The visit increased the king's popularity in Scotland, turning some subjects away from the rebellious radicalism of the time. However, it was Sir Walter Scott's organisation of the visit, with the inclusion of tartan pageantry, that was to have a lasting influence, by elevating the tartan kilt to become part of Scotland's national identity.

Kilts and tartans were used for army uniforms but were no longer ordinary Highland wear, having been proscribed in the wake of the Jacobite Risings by the Dress Act. The "small" kilt as worn today was a relatively recent innovation in the Highlands, having been introduced around the 1720s and later adopted as dress uniform by the army, but the romance of the "ancient" belted plaid still appealed to those wanting to preserve the Highland identity. Soon after the Act's repeal in 1782, Highland aristocrats set up Highland Societies in Edinburgh and other centers including London and Aberdeen. These were landowners' clubs with aims including "Improvements" (the Highland Clearances) and promoting "the general use of the ancient Highland dress" by obliging members to wear this when attending meetings. Numerous less exclusive associations including the Celtic Society of Edinburgh, of which Scott was enthusiastic chairman, had membership including many lowlanders as well as chieftains of impeccable Highland ancestry, and also promoted a Highland culture with all attending meetings and dances wearing "the garb of old Gaul". 041b061a72
