    Scottish 8-Yard Kilt Offer

    Hi! I just placed an order for the "Scottish 8 Yard Wool Kilt" deal that goes to help the kilt maker in Scotland affected by COVID-19. (URL https://www.usakilts.com/scottish-8-yard-wool-kilt.html). I wanted to make sure that it had the same internal construction design as other USA Kilts 8-yard kilts. Thanks!

    Yes, the internal construction is very similar to ours & they know our standards and specs. The one thing that WILL be different is the straps... they will have standard kilt straps (not our embossed ones).

    I ordered one on the last day of the sale. I'm waiting on mine right now. The post office hasn't moved to ship the kilt from PA in the past five days.

    Have patience - all good things are worth the wait. I'm very happy with my kilt from the Scottish sale - 13oz Fraser Red Ancient. Ordered in October, received in December, about 7 weeks.

    Patience will be rewarded ... eventually!

    I had a similar experience with that post office in Pennsylvania. They "sat" on a parcel from USA Kilts for which two-day shipping had been paid. For more than a week, USPS tracker showed the package had been received but "not accepted" (whatever that means!).

    Derek at USA Kilts was incredibly helpful. He dispatched a second order with two-day shipping which DID arrive in time for Christmas. The original parcel did not arrive until the day AFTER Christmas, 11 days after it had been shipped with "two-day priority." Sigh ...

    I was, however, able to "refuse" the first parcel at the post office and ship it back to the good people at USA Kilts.

    So ... I hope your new kilt arrives shortly and is everything you hoped it would be.

    Best wishes,
    Kevin

    I don't fault USA Kilts. They are great to do business with and I love their YouTube videos that are informative.

    The US Postal Service has just underperformed this fall. With package tracking, you can see how packages will sit for several days in one spot with no progress to the final destination. I recently had two packages that started on the east coast (USA), go down to Florida (near where I live), then to California, back to Florida, back to California, to then finally go to me in Florida.

    As of this morning, it looks as if my Modern Clan Young tartan will be delivered on 4 JAN.

    I had posted a few months ago of a similar issue with the Postal Service, but the tracking was not being updated when, in fact, the package was moving. I've actually had it happen several times in the last few months where the package shipping seems to dead-end at one facility or another, but the package eventually shows up (sometimes weeks or months later), long after I've obtained a refund from the seller or settled an insurance claim. In short, it's a total disaster right now with trying to get accurate information on anything that's in the mail.

    Sometimes they're actually handing off their packages to other carriers like UPS or FedEx to get it on its way. There's a spot a few blocks from my house where I see mail trucks meeting up with other carriers, backing their trucks up to each other for the transfer. When that happens, the online tracking probably just drops off the map.

    Which is to say, you might be pleasantly surprised that your package shows up without the tracking showing that it ever left the facility where it apparently dead-ended. Maybe not, but maybe so.

    I had much the same experience. USPS has really underperformed this Christmas season...they are normally reasonably fast, and quite good about tracking. Not this year.

    My big headache is that the kilt came in a bit small. I used measurements done by USAK when they did up my semi-traditional (which runs a little large on me)...the new kilt came in barely able to fit. I've got strap extenders on order, but it's a bit irksome.
