New Product: Baby Braveheart Outfit

For babies, it is especially important that they will be comfortable in their clothes, so we’ve found a kilt outfit that is perfect for little ones. This outfit includes a Velcro fastening kilt that can be easily adjusted, a sporran that can be gently tied with a leather lace, and soft, cotton mix kilt hose and ghillie shirt, so you can be sure they will be happy, and cute as a button, all day long.

What’s even better is that that the whole outfit, (excluding the sporran and leather lacing), is machine washable, so no matter how messy your little one might get it can be easily put in the laundry ready for next time.

This outfit is available in 40 different tartans and to fit tiny tots age 0 – 3 years. We know that a cream ghillie shirt and hose aren’t always what you’re looking for, so this outfit also offers a black option. With so much choice there’s something for everyone, whether it’s your special little guy and his first proper kilt outfit, or a little princess who wants to feel and look special, too.

This outfit all comes packaged together in a gift box, so it is also perfect as a present; we’re sure your favourite expecting parents would feel very lucky to receive this outfit. You can find it in our childrenswear category with all our other kids clothing for you to choose from.

New Products: Ladies Shawls

Our custom ladies shawl is made up in your chosen tartan. With hundreds of variations available you’ll be able to wear the tartan of your clan, or an equally stylish colour combination such as the stunning Isle of Skye tartan shown in the picture below.

Budget 5 Yard Kilt

After many requests, we have now added a 5 yard kilt to our budget poly-viscose range. These are perfect as a party kilt, and are already proving popular for rugby tours, scout outings and stag do’s.

They’re made from the same heavyweight poly-viscose fabric as our 8 yard budget kilts, making them a great casual alternative to your traditional kilt.

You may choose to wear a budget 5 yard kilt instead of an 8 yard kilt, particularly when travelling abroad where luggage space is at a premium. Having less material makes this kilt lighter and therefore ideal for hotter climates.

The 5 yard poly-viscose kilts have longer straps which make the sizes more flexible, and adjust for a great fit. We’ve currently got a choice of 6 tartans available including adding a Granite Grey tartan to our range. gb-k5grg

With St Andrew’s Day, Hogmany and Burns Night all on the horizon, you’re sure to get many invites requiring a little tartan to be worn. A sash is the best option for wearing a traditional or fashion item whilst still showing your Scottish Heritage.

The sash can be fastened with a brooch (sold separately) at the hip, adding another feminine touch to your outfit.

Available tartans:

 

Available sizes:

Each kilt is the smallest size when fully done up, but the long leather straps extend by at least 4 inches to fit the largest size in the range.

We hope to extend the range of tartans over the next few months so watch this space or subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to find out.

 

Ladies items now available

We’ve had numerous requests for ladies items in the past, and having listened to these, we have sourced a great selection of items. Any visitors to buyakilt.com will now see that we’ve been able to add a ladies wear category.

For ladies, tartan is a classic fashion staple, it never truly goes out of fashion and each year it’s seen throughout the seasons on catwalks and being worn by high profile celebrities. These are the ones who obviously have style.

For formal occasions many ladies choose to wear a sash to match their partner’s kilt. We have a range of 4 tartans to choose from including the Black Watch, Freedom and Heritage of Scotland tartans that correspond with the men’s kilts. A sash is also a popular option for Scottish weddings, allowing the bride to wear a small piece of tartan with a traditional white dress.

We have also added ladies kilts and corsets. The kilts are available in a range of lengths and tartans to suit all tastes. My favourite being the Bruce of Kinnaird for the vibrant colours.

Our ladies range also includes shoes, hats, scarves and beautiful stoles (just in time for winter)

Kilt Outfits Explained

You may remember back in June I blogged about some subtle changes we made to how we display the great range of kilt outfits we have on buyakilt.com. Well we weren’t quite finished there and as such have been busy beavering away in our efforts to offer an even better, streamlined experience for any intrepid outfit hunter.

As a result we are proud to present our new, improved, life enhancing (well, maybe not that last one..) range of kilt outfits! Now the first thing you may ask yourself is: where have all the outfits gone? This would be a perfectly reasonable thing to ask as it is by far our biggest change – we have cut our range from a staggering 54 outfits down to 34, and 10 outfit categories down to 6.

This was done to maintain a more streamlined approach and surprisingly you will find that even though we have cut the amount of outfits by roughly 40%, the actual choice within those outfits is as good as if not better than it was previously. Let me explain…

Previously for all formal kilt outfits we had a contemporary version and a traditional version of each style (eg. Contemporary Prince Charlie Budget Outfit and Traditional Prince Charlie Budget Outfit). At the time this made perfect sense as it allowed us to offer a choice of styles within the range, but what we found was that it led to a rather inflated amount of outfits. Now, as both outfits were essentially the same (with a few key differences such as shirt, tie and waistcoat) the most logical thing to do was to combine the outfits (eg. Budget Prince Charlie Kilt Outfit) and offer a choice of outfit styles within the outfit. It seems so obvious now that we think of it! This led to a dramatic reduction of outfits in the formal range.

Within the casual range we had a whole host of outfit styles – Casual Outfits, Deluxe Casual Outfits, Rugby Casual Outfits, Irish Casual Outfits etc etc etc. In other words, way too many for any sane person to make their choice. Again, with a bit of clever tinkering we were able to combine a whole host of these outfits and brought them all together under the fantastic title – Casual Outfits.

Now again you may think that your choice of outfits has been greatly reduced, but that is where our Create Your Own range come in. Our Custom Formal Kilt Outfit and Custom Casual Kilt Outfit have all the options you could get in any of the budget outfits but with the added beauty of being able to pick which items you do (or don’t) want. Combine this with a whole host of added options spread through all our outfits and we hope you will agree that these changes will not simply streamline your shopping experience, but also improve it!

Love the changes? Hate the changes? We look forward to any thoughts. As always you can find us in the usual places on Twitter and Facebook.
