    The kilt is wonderful, and as usual a work of art. As has been said on many other threads, when having a kilt constructed, it is best to consult with the kiltmaker, and his/her experience with the tartan. I prefer kilts pleated to sett, however, I will not part with two that I have pleted to stripe. Both were at the advise of the kiltmaker, and were the right way to go. (Thanks Rocky, Thanks Emma (not on XMTS).) There are some tartans best box pleated and many best knife pleated, and many that are open to any form of pleating. Again, the person working with the tartan usually knows best that which will be something to be proud of.
    Cheers

    When I'm make a kilt for someone who is potentially interested in having a kilt pleated to the stripe, I pin up a sample (more than one, if there's more than one option), plunk it on my flatbed scanner, and scan the pinned tartan. I just email a couple of jpegs to the customer and let them choose. Works great and saves the trouble of taking a photo and downloading the file.
