How to Measure

 

Kilts

Your kilt will be selected from stock based upon the following measurements. We suggest you print this guide and take the measurements as illustrated. Quote these values when enquiring about the availability of any hire package. Please DO NOT take these measurements unassisted.

Waist (A to B) - Measure the natural waist, approx. 2 inches higher than the hip bone. This measurement should be firm but not tight. Note: Max waist size available for hire is 54 inches.

Seat (C to D) - This measurement should be taken round the fullest/widest part of the seat and hip. This measurement should be loose (ie. the tape runs freely round the seat).

Length (E to F) - Measure from the natural waist to the middle of the kneecap. Take this measurement to the nearest 1/4 inch. It is important that this is done standing straight with your feet together. Note: Max kilt length available for hire is 28 inch.

Height - It's very important that we get your full height (head to toe) so we can judge if the sizes you have provided appear correct.

Conversion Chart  - If required use the following table to help you convert your kilt sizes. All our hire stock measurements are in inches therefore measurements supplied must be in this format.

Jackets

Your jacket will be selected from stock based upon the following measurements. We suggest you print this guide and take the following measurements as illustrated below. Quote these values when checking the availability of a hire package. Please DO NOT take these measurements unassisted.

Chest Size (A to B) - Measure around the fullest part of your chest. The tape should run freely round the chest at underarm height. Max. chest size is 56 inch.

Waist Size (C to D) - This should be the same measurement as your kilt waist.

Sleeve Length (E to F) - This measurement should be taken ideally with a jacket on. Measure from the crown to the preferred cuff length (finished length).

Fitting - Jacket styles are either Short, Regular or Long fittings. Short fitting is 1 inch shorter than regular, while long is 1 inch longer than regular. You can now compare your chest size and sleeve length to the following table to determine your fitting:

Chest (inches): 36 38 40 42 44 46 48 50 52 54
Regular Sleeve (inches): 23.5 24 24.5 25 25 25 25.5 26 26 27

 

It is very important that we get your full height (head to toe) so we can judge if the sizes you have provided appear correct.
