Kilt Measuring Guide

Following are the important measuring steps which you must follow before ordering the kilts. Please note ” the kilt waist is different than the pant or trouser’s waist”.

  1. Kilt Waist Measurement
  2. Hip Size Measurement
  3. Kilt Length Measurement

1-  Kilt Waist Measurement

This is the most important measurement step. You must have a standard measuring tape to measure your kilt waist. The measuring tape should move around your body at the point of your waist or belly button or where you are planning to fasten the kilt. You must be stand erect and normal breath as it is necessary for accurate measurement.

To keep my academic performance on the highest level I use different helpful resources for students. To choose the best one I go to as here I can find all necessary info on each of them. Legitimacy is the key requirement for me, so I currently use Edubirdie for my educational tasks.

Normally the kilt is  2 to 4 inches more waist size than pants size.

2- Hip Size Measurement

In this step you measure the widest part of the hip. It is a very important measure when your hip size is larger than in normal.

3- Measure the Length Size

The measuring tape should be measured at the start of your fastening point to the down where you want the bottom of the kilt. Normally the default Drop length 24″for male and 20″ for female.

Jacket Measuring Guide

Stand tall and breathe normally while measuring the jacket. Measure the circumference around the fullest area of chest

  • Waist

Wear a shirt and measure loosely around your waist at your naval.

  • Shoulder to shoulder

In this step, you must wear a well fitting jacket for this measurement. Stay erect and measure from one shoulder to the other end of the shoulder.

  • Sleeve Length

Wear a well-fitting suit jacket for the sleeve length measurement. Now measure from the shoulder seam to the cuff. Normally, jacket sleeves end 1.5inche  to 2inche above the base knuckle of the thumb, breaking at the wrist or slightly lower. Roughly 1/4″ to 1/2″ part of the shirt sleeve should show below the cuff of the jacket.

  • Back length

You can take help from your partner to measure your body from the back side. The measurement will be from the end of your collar till your waist point or where you want the length of the jacket.
