How to measure yourself for your kilt


Cargokilts will custom make your kilt to fit you perfectly. From regular sizes, flat gut to beer belly, there is more to measuring than meets the eye.
We have instructions on how to do this, but ideally we welcome you to visit our showroom in Springs, South Africa, for a personal fitting.

We understand that this is not always possible, so do CALL us and we will guide you through the process personally.
