    Question Box Pleated Kilts?

    Hi Rocky and company,

    I'm jonesing for yet another kilt, and want a five yard box pleated one this time. I'd like to order another from USA Kilts specifically, but am wondering if you do these?

    I would have sent this inquiry via your website Contact Us, but thought the answer would be helpful to all of the members of Xmarks.

    Here is the exact DC Dalgliesh mill MacRae tartan I have in mind for this kilt:



    Cheers.

    There are so many options for pleats to the stripe in the MacRae. But, I am partial to box pleats and think the sett of this tartan would be best in a box pleated kilt. All the colors and lines would stand out better in my mind. I hope they reply with, "of course, when do you want us to start?"

    Let us know. Also, what sporran (in your stable) would be your first choice to wear with this?

    Hi my friend. I think one of the brown toned daywear sporrans I've made would be sublime with the colors of this MacRae tartan. I feel that this is the most attractive incarnation of the MacRae sett too. Hope that Rocky can access this DC Dalgliesh version.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks so much Rocky and Bobby! Great news. I have a few more pounds to lose, and then I will discuss this with you.

    Awesome and good luck!

    That's awesome that USA Kilts has the option for Box pleated kilts now!

    Please keep us posted about how your kilt goes! I'd love to see the final result! That tartan is beautiful!

    A word of advice regarding Dalgliesh's reproduction colors: get a swatch to be sure you like the colors. I'd considered saving for custom weave of Murray of Tullibardine, so I ordered a swatch of the MacNaughton they had in stock (very different tartan but in the same basic colors). The red was more of a brick red than the rich crimson their digital samples imply, and the blue and green were likewise closer to the grey and tan of Lochcarron's weathered palette. You might find, as I did, that House of Edgar's muted version is more to your liking:



    Again, that's not quite accurate either, so I'd advise obtaining samples of both.
