    It seems a tad longer than one would expect in a made-to-fit kilt, or at least the angle of the first photo makes it appear that way. The selvedge appears to be below your knees. But the photo from behind makes it look like maybe it's not. I was just curious on whether a kilt-maker guided you in the fitting and made it to your specifications.

    Just because I pay attention to details, I did notice that the rear of the kilt has a single belt loop smack-dab in the centre. I found that interesting. Not all kilt-makers put belt loops on their kilts, and of the ones that do, most that I've seen will install two of them, spread apart by perhaps 6 inches or thereabouts. We've had numerous discussions here about the real purpose of these belt loops, with the traditionalist consensus being that the kilt belt should be worn over the belt loops, and only the sporran strap going through the loops. This works out rather well when there are two belt loops, as the rear buckle of the sporran strap ends up neatly between them. But with only a single belt loop, the sporran strap buckle would interfere with the loop. Depending on the construction of the sporran and strap (one-piece strap that can be offset versus two-piece that has hard-point connection to the sporran), this could be an issue. I'm assuming that since you wear your kilt belt through the loop, you wear the sporran strap outside the loop?
    I wear both in the loops actually. It is what I've done since I got it. My kilt has two belt straps in order to secure the kilt and hold it on you, one on each side and my sporran's chains are detachable.

    I'm not sure why it has three loops.

    I'd like to point members to a former thread on feathers in one's bonnet.
