Kilt Alterations

We can Remake your Kilt

Have you lost or gained weight?

Maybe you have had a kilt handed down but its not to your sizes, then dont be disheartened. Bring it in and we can see what we can do.

You can be confident that your kilt will be looked after and only remade by one of our fully trained in-house Kilt makers with any work backed up by our 12 months wokmanship guarantee.


Whilst in our care your kilt will also be professionally dry cleaned and pressed ready for pickup at no extra cost**

How does it all work?

  • We need you and your kilt in store, that way we can accurately measure you and what sizes the kilt is currently set to, this allows us to assess what needs done and whether or not it can be done to meet your needs.
  • Our kilt maker will then explain to you the best way to remake the kilt, the costs involved and timescales to complete the work.
  • No Obligation to proceed with work after consultation and the consultation is FREE.
  • If you are happy at that stage to go ahead then we complete our remake form and book your kilt in for the work.
  • There are no upfront charges.
  • Payment is only taken once the work is complete and you are completely satisfied.
  • All costs are fixed at the time of consultation and will not change.
  • There are no other hidden charges.
