    Tweed kilt vs 5 yard

    I noticed that there are tweed tartan options listed under the 5 yard kilt, and some of those options are also available under the tweed kilt listing. Is there a difference in construction, or are these merely fabric options?

    I am not trying to be cleaver here but, I assume from your question, perhaps incorrectly, you mean that there is tartan made of tweed(remembering most tartan cloth is not tweed) that can be made into a kilt and then the more usual, there is tweed made into patterns befitting suits, sports jackets, etc. which could be made into a kilt. So I think in this case, your question is rather ambiguous.

    They're merely fabric choices. We've had a few requests for tweed kilts and several in tweed tartans, so we put the tweed tartans in both areas on the website. The construction is the same. 😁

    Thank you for the info!

    Follow up: This isn’t meant to be combative (it’s on me for not doing my own homework on the website), but why the difference in price ($299.99 for the 5 yard, $349.99 for the tweed)?

    Indeed, depending on the tweed you select the difference may be up to $110.00.

    Aren’t those the same tweed tartan?

    Yes, indeed. By the look of things, the same kilt will be made up in that same tweed tartan, with a $100.00 difference in cost depending on which button you click.

    I'm sure Rocky will adjust this appropriately.
