This weblog is mainly to describe slices-of-life in a kilt and with the objective, of course, that more men shall make the kilt a valuable addition to their wardrobe.

Why this dramatic price increase on Scottish kilts?

During the last couple of years prices on kilts made in Scotland have increased rather dramatically. Perhaps the vendors are trying to compensate for the drop in the British pound since the country decided to leave the European Union? This, however, makes no sense to me, as it is to believe that the wool comes from Scotland, and that wages to Scottish kilt makers have not increased that much.

You might remember that a few years ago some Scottish kilt manufacturers demanded that only kilts made by skilled Scottish kiltmakers in Scotland and from Scottish wool should be allowed to be called kilts.

Prices on imported Pakistani made cheap kilts have not gone up, which should have been the consequence.


I don’t understand it.
