How to properly measure your sizes

Remember we also have a home measuring service available too


Kilts

It is always recommended that you ask a second person to do the measuring

 Made to measure kilts require three different measurements: waist, seat and length. Mens kilts traditionally hang about mid knee, or top of the knee if it is a military style kilt.

Waist: Measure snugly around your waist at the height of your belly button.

Seat: Put your feet together and measure around the broadest part of the hips and bum.

Length: Kneel down, keeping your back straight, and measure from the belly button to the floor. UNLESS you are looking for a military style kilt, then (kneeling the same way) you measure from the belly button to the top of the knee. It is especially important to have second person to measure this because if you attempt to measure yourself, it is likely you will lean forward and accidentally alter the measurement.


Trews

Waist: For HIGH WAIST trousers (most of the made to order and in stock tartan trews), measure around your waist at the height of your belly button. For REGULAR WAIST trousers, measure around your waist at the top of your hip.

Seat/Hip: Put your feet together and measure around the broadest part of the hips and bum.

Inside leg: Standing up straight, your feet shoulder width apart, measure from the groin to the ankle on the inner side of the leg.

Outside leg: Standing up straight, your feet shoulder width apart, measure from the waist to the ankle on the outer side of the leg.
