    Wow, great replies from everyone!!! Now I guess I will have to take some time to consider if I will go for a wool secondhand (providing I can find a 40"waist/24"height, that seems quite dificult) or a brand new one in PV.

    You're all an awesome pool of information. Thanks!!!

    One more option for you.

    My latest kilt was from Lynne Ward in Glasgow. She does great work for very reasonable price. I paid about $300 for mine, made to my custom measurements. You can find pics of my kilt (and others from her) on this thread here.

    When business is slow, she makes up kilts in common sizes, and sells them on eBay for even more reasonable prices.

    Here's a Colquhoun Ancient in your size for about $200, which may be a touch more than you want to spend. Watch her page though, or maybe get in touch with her. Sometimes she sells low-yardage kilts for as little as $120 or so, and she currently has this 8-yard which is slightly too small for you, listed for just $165.

    Actually, that is a pretty common size on the used and ex-hire market. For example Claymore Imports have a lot of ex-hire kilts that are pretty close to you measurements. However, they do start a little about your stated price. I have purchased from them and have liked what I bought. I have also had good luck on the various charity auction sites.
