    Modern Tartan Kilt with Pockets

    Hey all, anyone have tips for finding a modern style kilt with pockets in a tartan pattern? As much as I like traditional kilts, having pockets is very helpful. I like to think of it as the jeans of kilts.

    I have a UTKilt that I like but I'd prefer something that is made of P/V. That said companies like Skilt (who I absolutely love) are a bit out of my price range right now.

    Steve makes contemporary kilts and kilts that look traditional (but you can have them made with pockets!).

    Hello, Yes, I am the developer of what today is called the Contemporary Kilt and the author of " The Hand Crafted Contemporary Kilt".

    I wear the kilt because:

    Regarding pockets on kilts but in the late 90's I remember the introduction of the "Hillwalking Kilt" which was of less yardage and which had conventional trouser style pockets similar to those pictures above on a slightly curved vertical slant.

    However googling images online there are some images of a different interpretation on Kilt Wear with some guys wearing kilts with boots, etc and in some images they apoear like they have waistcoats longer than their jacket, but closer inspection reveals that what I was seeing was not the base of the waistcoat but a seperate piece haging down - they appear to be forming Pouch style pockets separate from the main body of the k7lt. I can't say I am a fan of the style though!

    Just had a bit more of a look but the desgn I am referring to is from 21st Century Kilts designed by Howie Nicholsby. I can't say the style is to my tastes and personally they don't look a pleasingly aesthetically as a more traditional kilt to my eyes, but each to their own....
