    express service at USAK

    For those who can't wait the normal 6-10 weeks for their kilt, USAK has a rush fee that you can pay when you place your order of $25-$50 that will get it out the door in just 2-3 weeks. The cost and time varies by the kilt you order, but it is still at least half the time as the normal wait.
    The hielan' man he wears the kilt, even when it's snowin';
    He kens na where the wind comes frae, But he kens fine where its goin'.

    Waiting is the hardest part, but the reward is worth it!

    I placed an order for a 5 yard traditional in Nithsdale tartan back in early February, and it just arrived over the weekend, and I have decided that waiting was well worth the outcome. The craftsmanship and appearance are more than I could have hoped for, and I was pleased to see on the care instructions that I can, in fact, machine wash this one in the machine, despite it being wool with leather straps (cold, gentle cycle, lay flat to dry)!

    I got everything in the order minus the sporran, which is on back order, but that is fine... I'll get it when they do....lol

    *** EDIT***
    USA Kilts just called, I retract the machine wash comment on the wool kilt (I do have a PV Casual that is good to go though with the washing machine, so I was partly correct in a very round about way...) the wool ones are dry clean only unless you know what you're doing (as Rocky states below).

    Either way, the wait is worth it and the customer service is beyond wonderful!

    When I decided that I needed a second kilt for the games here in May, I had to put a rush on it so that I would have it in time for the games. I chuckle because it is technically my second kilt, but the first one to arrive. The rush fee is very fair and it got to me well within the timeframe allotted on their website.

    Ummm .... please call us immediately. I fear you got the wrong instructions. You CANNOT wash a wool kilt in the washing machine (unless you REALLY know what you're doing with wet washing a kilt).
