    Measurement question

    hello!

    On this page under "length" are you asking for TOTAL length of the kilt, or the length from hipbone BEFORE a rise is added? If the latter, it looks like the minimum kilt length one could arrive at is 23.5 inches, which would be 1.5" too long for me:

    That could only be true if you're measuring from your hip bone to kneecap as 20.5". If you're like me and take that measurement as 22" then you're in under the wire.

    The minimum length you can click on is 22"; the minimum rise 1.5" - for a total of 23.5"
    All of my kilts have a TOTAL length of 22" See my problem...?

    Hello woodsheal.

    We are working on adding shorter measurements to all the kilts. Thank you for letting us know about this problem it will be resolved by the end of the week. If you don't see your exact measurement in the future just make note of it during checkout in the order comments. As kilts are made to measure we want to make sure we have your exact measurements.

    Again we will resolve this issue on all kilts by the end of the week. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    B&S- make sure that- while you are making changes- you reconcile the 3 measurements that were on your *.pdf file with the 2 measurements that you specify on your webpage.

    Anybody with uncertainty about measurements should call and talk with B&S; I didn't.

    We have updated to specify the length is on the Measuring form and then also Hip size is noted as (C) the Seat.

    If you have any problem measuring please contact us. Its important to get these right to ensure the perfect fit.
