Kilt Pleating There are two basic methods of pleating a kilt. In one - called pleating to the stripe - a vertical stripe is selected and the fabric will be folded so that this stripe runs down the center of each pleat. The result is a style where horizontal bands appear along the back and sides of the kilt (see the gallery photo "pleating to the stripe"). A kilt pleated in this fashion will look different from the front than it does from the back. It is often called military pleating because this is the style of pleating adopted by most military regiments. It is also widely used by pipe bands.

The other style of pleating is called pleating to the sett (see example). Here, the fabric is folded in such a way that the pattern of the sett is repeated all around the kilt. This is done by taking up one full sett in each pleat. The result is a kilt which looks much the same from the front as from the back.The tartan in this picture is Heather Isle.

my Cochrane ancient arrived and i couldn't be happier. beautifully finished and a great weight for Australia. i wore it that night walking the dog and shopping and received many compliments both on the look and the fact it is not common here to see a bloke in a kilt. if i wasn't married i could have really capitalised on the popularity of it with the many admiring ladies! also, it looked great with my 14up cherry docs! thanks HoS


Product merits: great drape, perfect fit.


Product drawbacks: same thing about the buckles

I received mine a couple of weeks ago and wore it for the first time to a wedding. This is a amazing purchase, cause I got compliments all night long. Beautiful, well designed and also well finished. Colours, material are just wonderful. Don't hesitate if you want to buy a beautifully finished kilt at a reasonable price.

The kilt is a construction masterpiece. Extremely well made. This is more than I expected thinking about the quality. I purchased this item 2 yrs ago and it has become my kilt of choice. I've taken it on international trips and it travels well. I am so pleased with this kilt that I have another on the way.

I received my custom tailored 5-yard John Morrison kilt and matching flashes yesterday. The wool fabric is soft and hangs beautifully. As a first-time kilt wearer I wasn’t sure what to expect but am quite pleased. The tartan colors (Donegal County) are as promised and a good match to the online swatches. The medium weight fabric is substantial so that it lays nicely and yet is light enough to wear in the warmer climate of Virginia, USA. I found the tailoring to be excellent with attention to detail and a perfect fit to the measurements I provided. Even my wife, who is a good seamstress, was impressed with the fabric and construction. Thank you.


Product merits: Beautiful soft fabric, nice tailoring and perfect fit, love the tartan colors!

Hi, I ordered three of these kilts, (in the Lochaber ancient tartan) for myself and two of my friends, and we were all extremely pleased by the quality and tailoring. The material is of a very high quality. As always when ordering on the internet, I was a little worried about supplying the correct measurements and making sure that the chosen Tartan was the correct one. However, I didn't need to worry; when everything arrived the fit, the tartan and the whole product was perfect. I can only thank the whole team for the very pleasant shopping experience. That includes all the telephone calls and e-mails. Thanks very much for everything. Neal.


Product merits: Top Quality.

I had been wanting to buy a kilt for quite a long time and one apprehension I had when visiting most websites selling kilts was that I would get the measurements wrong, or that the kilt maker would... But this site is incredibly clear and the kilt I have received is a perfect fit! The accessories are also of high quality, so I would recommend anyone who wants to buy himself a full package to do so here as it must be the best place to do so, and the staff is very attentive to what customers have to say, answer quickly and effectively, keeping you up to date without burying you under mounds of emails. Thank you!

Bought this kilt a few years ago and it has served me well I wear it as a Scout and it has been worn many times including on the Queens Colour Party at Windsor Castle.


Product merits: Beautifully made with a good swing indistinguishable from an 8yd kilt except at very close range.
