Oh! I meant to reply and say how well this works for my husband's kilt as well.

I have a personal fav to use for hanging kilts, which is this.
I like the fact that you can hang a jacket or doublet on it as well.
Amazon.com has them for sale as the Euro Mahogany Suit Hanger with Trouser clamp for 8.99. There is also the setwell, or setco Coat & Suit Contour Hanger No. 548

My tank from Scotland has 2 loops on the waistband. I was shown once how to fold and roll the kilt, using the two loops to hang it from a normal coat hanger. For the life of me, I can't remember how to do it.
Can anyone explain how it's one?

I hang my kilts the same way as if I were wearing them. Close all the buckles, place the wooden hanger towards the top, and hang them up, no rolling or crazy tricks, pure and simple.

I posted this tutorial almost a year ago and people are still missing the most important part.
No more buying expensive stuff. No more searching e-bay for deals or fancy new gadgets.
Just a quick stop at the clothing store of your choice in your local mall.
Oh, and baysidboy, the two loops inside the waistband are not meant for hanging your kilt for long periods of time. They are there to let you hang your kilt when you don't have any hangers and need to take it off for a short time, such as in the bathroom. Just hang the kilt by the loops over the coathook on the back of the door.
If you hang a good quality Wool kilt by the little hanger loops for a long time, or very often, the fabric will distort and not look good when you wear it.

I wear the kilt because: Swish + Swagger = Swoon.

Great tip. I've actually been doing that for years. I also splurge frae time tae time and spend a wee bit on a set of quality cedar hangers. I don't have a moth problem, I just love the smell of cedar (then agin maybe that's why I don't have a problem wit moths ). If you check a home goods store like Bed Bath & Beyond you can find the cedar ones rather cheap. I think my last set of 4 were well bellow $10. U.S. , I'd even say below $8. They are extremely well made and have super strong spring clips and the parts that touch the fabric have soft yet tear resistant rubber on both sides. Just a thought if you wanted some good hangers tae mingle wit the free ones.

The method my husband has used for 50 years is...
get a wooden men's suit hanger,the kind with the dowell that clips into the wire loop. Replace that short dowell with a loooong dowell, slide the hanging loops over the dowell and stretch the waist to hang naturally. He has never has a problem with the weight distoring the kilt, and until a few weeks ago, his were all tanks. He can also hang a jacket on the same hanger.
