    New kilt from Kilts4less

    I am a regular eBay surfer, and i came across some new wool kilts from Kilts4less. The posting said they were made from 100% wool from a bankrupt stock purchase. I couldnt beat the price $150USD for an 8yrd 100% wool kilt, including shipping.

    So it came today. While I have only had it for 5 hours, all I can say is what a deal! Let me know if you have any questions.

    lots more pics would be cool, inside showing how the lining and canvas is set up, close up of the fabric, pics of any labels, stuff like that.

    Its gotten rainy since i took my first pic. These were taken under inside lighting, so the color balance is a little off (warm). But hope this helps.

    the backing under both aprons is very heavy and stiff.

    A nice purchase indeed. Have to say I have always had quality items from them (cilt and/or jackets). Highly recommended by this member!

    I've been tempted by them before, but I'm not sure I like their advertising/listing policy. As I understand it, Clan Alba is their own line. They list these kilts as having been bought out in a bankruptcy sale or some such, but it appears they have had them made. I contacted them about a Buchanan kilt, and they didn't have my size in their current inventory (of bankrupt stock purchase), but could have one made for me within a week at the same price. This was a year or 2 ago, and the kilts advertized also had the Clan Alba tag. I also couldn't get them to send me a picture that showed the pleats, so I didn't purchase.

    Ya, for me I am a nervous reck spending any money online when i cant touch it first. I did find two or three good reviews from others on this forum who bought from kilts4less, so I felt better with my decision. Their stock of sizes is getting more limited. I just couldn't pass up the deal. I am very please with it.

    I would be happy to answer any questions you have.

    I've had excellent lucky buying from Kilts4Less. Kilts, Jackets, and accessories. A good place to go for deals.

    In my experience (and it is only mine) I have seen much higher prices for far lower quality. Each to their own I guess, but personally, I'm happy with their prices for a 100% wool cilt that I am not afraid to wear for everyday use. (Still go elsewhere for my dress cilts, mind you).
