Greetings gentlemen,

I currently have one kilt, a St. Patrick's tartan from Sport Kilt. I like it. It's well made, a comfortable fit, and this thing repels stains like you wouldn't believe. It's a perfect everyday kilt.

However, I'm looking to get 2 more kilts. I'm going to get a great kilt and another causal wear kilt. For the great kilt, I know it's limiting, but I'm looking to spend $150 or less. I've seen a couple of places online that do it in tartan fabric made from polyviscose (which my Sport Kilt is). I'd say my ceiling is $150 for the casual as well. If I could do one for $100 and the other for $200, I'd be glad to bend.

Long story short, I want recommendations from you all on where to get a kilt.

I'm happy to order from a local shop you might recommend, as long as they have an internet presence. I'm not a Utilikilt kind of guy. I want something that proclaims my heritage.

So, with that, what say you all?

I would go back to sport kilt for the casual wear kilt and take the savings for great kilt.. I think that it is going to be pricey.

Try Highland Kilt. Good prices and quality kilts. http://www.highlandkilt.com/index.html

I have no personal experience with these folks, but a kilt-wearing acquainteance swears by Stillwater Kilts.  They have numerous plaids and their non-wool fabrics come in under $100 for most patterns.

Can always try to find a local shop/tailor that deals in kilts or has dealings with kilt manufacturers in Scotland. Have them measure you up and they will order it. 

I have had good dealings multiple times with Strathmore in Forfar Scotland. 100% New Wool, well made etc, though a bit pricey.

And though I would never recommend buying a kilt from a highland games merchant tent, often you can use them to measure you and either order the kilt yourself or find out their provider and look into it.
