    Just Ordered My 30th USA Kilt

    Kind of a milestone. Irony is back in the day I was afraid to take a chance on them...The reviews were so consistently positive I figured they had to be fakes or shills. Finally ordered my first anyway. When it arrived I was really impressed with the craftsmanship. No easy thing. I grew up in cut and sew factories and my college minor was Clothing and Textiles and I worked in the clothing industry for many years as an adult.

    Pretty easy to recognize quality.

    So far I've owned 14 USA Kilt Casuals and 13 USA Kilt Semi-trads and 2 USA Kilts 5 yard woolen kilts. This order makes my 15th Casual.

    Sized it to tide me over. I've lost 77lbs in the last couple years. Good for my health but it's made my kilt collection unwearable...even on the smallest kilt strap holes they are 4" too big now. So been selling them off.

    Don't wanna buy more until my weight stabilizes - hopefully in another 20 pounds or so. Meantime I've been jonesing to wear a kilt so much figured why not order one...

    This is an INTENSE addiction...

    And, if you're new to kilting or to USA Kilts this isn't a shill review. They really are top quality. Worth the risk to buy one and see for yourself if you're in the market.

    Choice for this Casual was Weathered Scott Green...my maternal grandmother's clan.

    Did you see if USAK would have been able to size down your old kilts? I don't know how difficult it is or isn't, I'm just curious.

    Glad you're getting back into the game!

    It'd be a BIG size down...just doesn't seem doable. My hand sewn kiltmaker offered to do that. Told her I'd best wait until I'm done losing weight. Will encourage me not to gain it back. No clue how much is too much to size down...guess we'll see ere long.
