If you simply go ahead and buy a kilt based on your pants size then there’s a good chance that it will not fit. However, if you have a recent bought kilt lying around then you can certainly go with that size but remember there are some size differences between utility kilts and traditional kilts.

So, you must check the sizing guide for any type of kilt you are looking to purchase. So, let’s go ahead and find out how to measure a utility kilt.

  • Before we start with the main procedure, let’s go ahead and measure where you plan to wear the kilt, whether it’s up your bellybutton or whether it’s down low.
