The ABC’s of Tartan CLAN highland wear has a wide selection of tartans to choose from. We carry Braveheart Tartan, Welsh Tartan, Irish Tartan, Premium Wool Tartan and Synthetic blends. Our tartan selection includes pretty much every tartan currently being woven. (We work with eight different woolen mills to bring you the largest possible selection.) If you don’t find what you’re looking for please let us know. Any tartan that is not listed can be custom woven. Please select one of the tartan links below to browse our selection. All tartan orders are non-refundable, so please make sure that what you order is what you want. We are happy to help, in any way we can, to identify tartans for you before you order. Please allow 8 – 12 weeks for delivery of most tartans.

Premium Wool Made from 100% pure new wool, woven in Scotland. This is the same tartan most of you are familiar with, used in modern, tailored, formal kilts. This is your best option if you are looking for a specific tartan, as there are over 500 available. We work with 5 different mills in Scotland to bring you the widest selection possible. All tartans are double width (54-60 inches wide) unless otherwise specified. Because it is cut from the roll and shipped from Scotland just for you, tartan yardage is considered a special order item.

Homespun Wool Our Homespun Tartan is made from a 55/45 blend of polyester & wool, woven by hand on old-world looms. It looks very authentic to what would have been woven historically. The yarn is worsted, but not spun as tightly as modern machine-made tartan. The cloth is also not as tightly woven. Homespun tartan will pleat by hand easily, but will not develop a sharp edge. Small snags, pulls, holes and other assorted blemishes are common. Because it is hand woven, these flaws are a natural part of it’s character. Homespun is approximately a 10/11oz. fabric, but feels thicker due to it’s looser weave. Homespun tartan is woven 54” wide.

Braveheart Tartan CLAN highland wear offers the same 100% wool tartan, woven in Scotland, as that used in the filming of the movie Braveheart! A very rustic tartan, woven in natural wool and earth tones, believed to be authentic to that period.

Welsh Tartans Enjoy a selection of Welsh tartans actually woven in Wales! Light weight, 100% premium wool. Woven 59 inch wide. Recommended for ladies wear, accessories, and light-weight kilts. Welsh tartan is not woven with kilting selvages, so a hem will be required for kilt (and skirt) making. Because it is cut from the roll and shipped from Wales just for you, tartan yardage is considered a special order item.

Irish Tartans Made from 100% pure new wool, woven in Scotland (yes, Irish tartans, woven in Scotland). All tartans are double width (54-60 inches wide) unless otherwise specified. Because it is cut from the roll and shipped from Scotland just for you, tartan yardage is considered a special order item.

Kilt

Meas

Measurements Required for Your Kilt: You’ll get the most accurate fit when you have help. Stand straight and have a friend measure for you. Bending to measure yourself will alter your results. Waist — Measurement traditionally taken at navel level. These days many wear their kilts at the pant waist instead. Where you take this measurement depends on personal preference and the type of kilt. Please view product description for more information on an individual kilt, or contact us if you have questions.

Hips — Measurement taken at the fullest part of the hips. This is at mid-derrière level for most men. Length — Measurement from waistband level down to where you want the bottom of your kilt. Traditionally the kilt rests at the top to the middle of the knee. (No shorter than the top of the knee. No longer than the bottom of the knee.)

Measurements Required for a Jacket or Vest: The instructions below are going to differ from what you may have read elsewhere, but in our experience are going to result in the best fit. You can also order based on a jacket you already own that fits well, or go to a men’s store to be professionally measured. Chest — Extend your arms straight out from your body. Take a full breath and hold it. Have someone measure you around your chest under your arms. Lower your arms to your side, take a deep breath and measure under your arms. The larger of the two is your chest measurement, which is your jacket size.


surements Length — Strange but true: Your shoe size will determine your arm length. If you wear a size 9 or smaller, your jacket will be a SHORT. Shoe size 9-11 order a REGULAR. Larger than 11 order a LONG. * A potential exception to this rule is if you have earned yourself a good size beer gut. If so, you might want to get a relaxed belly measurement as well. If your chest measurement is smaller than your belly measurement, you might want to go with the belly measurement as your jacket size. Your jacket will be looser in the shoulder, but comfortably fit your beer gut. Another way around this is to order the jacket based on your chest and your vest separately based on your waist.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING We can ship most of our products to most countries, but there are a few restrictions. Please contact us for more information, and for estimated shipping cost. We have no way of knowing how much it will cost to ship your order until it is packaged and sitting on the scale. All shipping costs found online, or quoted before that point, are estimates only. Be warned that whatever country you call home is most likely going to really “stick it to you� with customs duties and fees when your package arrives. So much for fair trade. If in doubt, Google it. Some countries are more import friendly than others.
