kilts shall also after Brexit be available within EU; even if they come in tartans
of their own. I’m thinking of the Austrian Rettl Company, which for years has
been in business with their fashionable Corinthian kilts.
In fact, I know of no other kilt maker or vendor doing so much for promoting
Just have a look at the new 132 pages Rettl & Friends web magazine:

kilts but are not so much for tartans, or you should just like some variety:
Camouflage kilt might be a good idea. Scotweb is selling such kilts for just 99

Kingdom is to leave The European Union and that also includes Scotland – at least
until the Scots might chose independence - and Europe.
does the Brexit mean to kilt buyers living in Europe? Well technically it is
going to be a bit more complicated. But prices on kilts should not go up very
much, if at all.
it has been extremely easy – one of the blessings of belonging to EU. You just
paid the price including British VAT and had your kilt delivered.
When the Brexit
is a reality it shall be different:
to pay the kilt price excluding British VAT plus freight, added 12% import tax, added
your local VAT plus a handling fee to the courier company. 10 EU countries do
have a VAT rate of 20 % or lower. In 6 countries it is approx. the same (21%) and
in 11 it varies from 22% to 27%, meaning worse.
It is to
believe, however, that the British Pound shall loose so much compared to the
Euro and other European currencies (it has already started) that this shall
more than compensate for the 12 % import tax on clothing. In some countries,
therefore their new kilt might become a little cheaper, in others a little bit
who these days is ordering a kilt from Scotland can save money compared to one

fine casual kilts are really cheap. Heritage of Scotland.com sells them with 20% off, meaning a good opportunity to order your first kilt or just buy yourself
another one. Many tartans to choose.
2007 I bought one of these kilts, in MacLeod of Harris tartan. And today I have
actually been wearing it again. It’s really amazing how good this kilt is still
looking, after all these years of frequent wearing.

I’m not too
often here on my blog. Having always complained about not maintained webpages
on the internet, I should be, however.
Well, contrary to kilt makers and vendors of kilts I don’t make this for a
living. I just like buying kilts and accessories AND, first of all, wearing them.
That I will whenever possible, which again means almost every day year round. I
never need a reason or an excuse; just acceptable weather. That may explain my
rather seldom activity here. I simply didn’t get the time.
In future I’ll try
to write a little bit more, however. I’ll try.
I have been busy on the internet, nevertheless. A few months ago I have been
giving my homepage, Dress2kilt, a completely new layout. Some text was revised
and the gallery was increased by about 500 pictures; now sorted by tartan. It
took quite some time. If you have not yet noticed, you may take a look.

hear that the kilt is for men only; women wear kilted skirts, when in behind-pleated,
wrap-over (tartan) things. At least this is a distinction Scotsmen seem to prefer.
Well, on other languages than English a kilt has probably always been just a
kilt, whoever gender were supposed to wear it.
on the internet found a new site, Le Kilt, belonging to a female Scottish kilt
maker making kilts – for women.
Even if you
are looking for KILTS you may nevertheless enjoy this site, due to its most
elegant layout. And, by the way, the kilts themselves handmade in Scotland for women by Samantha McCouch and branded
Le Kilt are looking absolutely gorgeous.

ago an American, Steven Villegas, launched his Utilikilt and founded his company,
Utilikilts.com in Seattle, USA. It meant
kind of revolution, and in the meantime the brand Utilikilt has gained icon status
– is THE modern kilt, so to speak and if you today want the ‘real’ thing you
must be prepared to pay over $200 for it.
If you are an EU-resident duty tax and VAT come on top and you are exceeding what
equals 300 €.
A few years
ago most affordable utility kilts, primarily made by numerous small enterprises
in the city of Sialkot in Northern Pakistan started popping up, however, and now
kilt shops in America and Europe are selling these non-branded utility kilts.
Some are only available in the standard 24” length; with others you have a
choice. They not only come in many different colors; but also in various
designs. £40 or the equivalent might be what it takes.
You can learn more about utility kilts here:

For the Scottish
participants of the upcoming Commonwealth Games a special orange/light blue tartan
has been created. It is to be used for kilts to be
worn by the men and for capes for the women during the opening ceremony.
with the kilt the men will wear patterned light blue shirts – equalizing the
dresses for the female participants – yellow/brownish kilt hose, flashes in the
kilt tartan, and brown sporrans and shoes, but, unfortunately, no belt and
