Cheater Pleats™

We include pleating instructions with each kilt. Traditionally, one pleats these kilts each time you wear them. We ask for size information to be sure that your kilt will fit you correctly, but we do not pleat the kilt for you unless you also select Cheater Pleats™ as an additional option.

Note — Kiltmakers generally pleat modern kilts so that the front apron of the kilt closes from left to right. For years this is how we’ve Cheater Pleated™ our Ancient Kilts. However, many customers brought it to our attention that this makes it difficult to wear the plaid over the left shoulder, which is also customary.
So, we’ve decided to make all Ancient Kilts the other way — front apron closing from right to left. This makes the aprons “backwards” compared to a modern kilt, but it allows the plaid to flow up and over the left shoulder. (This is the way Mel wears it in the Braveheart movie.)

Incidentally, plaid over left shoulder is not a hard and fast rule. It most likely originated as a practical way to keep the plaid off your sword arm. You might want to wear the plaid over your right shoulder, if you are left-handed. Just let us know — we can Cheater Pleat™ your kilt either way you want!

Please Note — If you add Cheater Pleats™ to your kilt, it becomes a custom-made item. Custom-order terms and conditions apply. Please click to view important information about custom-order items.


  • 6-yard Ancient Kilt fits up to about a 38-inch waist.
  • 8-yard Ancient Kilt fits up to about a 48-inch waist.
  • 10-yard Ancient Kilt fits up to about a 54-inch waist.
  • Larger kilts are available. Please contact us.

Depending on waist size, pleats will vary between one and two inches wide (pleats will get wider as waist size increases). If your waist size is close to one of the limits above, consider the next size larger if you want deeper pleats or pleats closer together.

How to measure for your Ancient Kilt

  1. Have someone help you. If you bend even a little while trying to do it yourself, the measurements will change.
  2. Kilt Waist: Measure the waist size at your actual waist, where you usually wear your pants.
  3. Kilt Length: Measure the length from your waist to about the middle of the knee.

  1. Gary M Steffen (verified owner)

    The material is great, a viable choice when one cannot afford wool. I had them put in cheater box pleats, which were done professionally. The ancient MacDonald sett also looked wonderful. Communication when I needed to make a last minute change was good and the change was dealt with without missing a step. Thanks!

  2. Gary Steffen (verified owner)

    Great fabric, well made and promptly shipped. Great communications.

  3. Doc MacTavish-Thomson (verified owner)

    This is exactly what I wanted! I got the 8-yard because you can never have enough kilt, right? The end fringing is nice and long, and the fabric is not heavy, but feels durable. Service was accurate and quick! I received it seven days after purchase, and that was with the Post Office shipping! The brooch is nice and heavy, and has a great hand-forged look to it. I will continue using Kilts-n-Stuff.

  4. Duncan

    I custom ordered this product and requested a delivery date waaaaaaaaay sooner than the standard delivery time-frame and actually got it sooner than expected! The measurements are perfect and the cheater pleats are very convenient.

  5. Kev Landry

    I was a little worried after opening it that I measured wrong by using inches instead of centimeters or something. It really looked like I had enough material for two or three kilts. After watching a couple videos on putting it on and searching around a little I realized I could have got the 5 yard instead of the 6. So it is a bit more work folding pleats but I think it makes a truly awesome and always original kilt every time. It is too bad customs dinged me for another 40 bucks. Since mine has no cheats or buckles I should be able to avoid it since it is like a table cloth or just unfinished fabric. (homespun). Oh well, great deal none the less.

  6. Karyn

    The kilt I ordered for my husband is perfect and amazing. The fabric quality is very good, but light weight enough that he was comfortable in hot, full sun conditions. We got the cheater pleats, which definitely helped. My only complaint is that the descriptions says they are sewn the opposite way now so that the tartan can be put over the left shoulder, but this was not the case with ours, he has to wear it over the right shoulder the way the pleats are sewn in, but that is SO very minor. I had asked if it was possible to receive the kilt WAY faster than the site says is normal and the seamstress followed through. I was able to gift the kilt to my husband for our 15th anniversary and in time for him to wear to our local ren fest this year. He got tons of compliments and hopefully we steered some business your way! THANK YOU!

    Better than I could have hoped for!

  8. Amie

    I bought this for my husband. At first we weren’t sure what kind to get but the product descriptions are excellent. The kilt is great quality. I was unsure what to expect for this price and was very impressed. We opted for the cheater pleats and are glad we did. I will definitely order from them again.

  10. Devin T

    It has been my dream since I was 16 to get a kilt. Getting the kilt from Celtic Croft was quick, easy, and cheap! It is excellent quality, and it looks fantastic! Many of my friends have told me that they wish they were Scottish now that I wear it around! Thanks so much, and I recommend them for sure!

  11. Steve H

    I just received the kilt. Thank you, the quality of this is O.M.G Perfect, Look forward to our next purchase. Thanks for the quick shipping. I’ll be recommending you to all my friends and family.

  12. NATALYA B.

    Dear Celtic Croft,
    Thank you for making my brother’s Christmas very special! He absolutely loved his kilt! The quality is amazing and I was very please with how quickly the package arrived. Thank you for the wonderful service!!!

    I just received my kilt. Thank you, the quality of this is beyond my expetations. Your homespun tartan is perfect. I wanted something that truely looks like a “daily wear” kilt and this is it. The weave is beautifull and smooth but looks tough and “real”. Like I could wear it today and use it as a blanket tonight and it would not wear through. Other tartan fabric I have purchased just seems dressy. Thanks also for the quick stich and shipping. I’ll be recommending you to all my friends.

    Thanks Christopher
