FAQ: WHY ARE KILTS SO EXPENSIVE?


Question
Why are Kilts so expensive?

Answer
There are a variety of reasons.  Kilts are expensive.
For one, traditional tartan kilts are 8 yards of wool which is costly.  These Kilts usually cost about a thousand dollars.

Modern Kilts are made of less fabric- usually cotton or a cotton/poly blend, which brings the cost down to about a third as much as a traditional Kilt.

In particular, StumpTown Kilts cost between $155 for Women's Kilts to $195 for Men's Kilts because of the quality and craftmanship.  Each STK takes a professional 4 hours to sew.  Then, almost 30 minutes to rivet each key point for added strength.
