Any OUTLANDER fan will soon recognize the officially licensed OUTLANDER: The Series tartan! Created for and worn by your favorite characters, now you can have one too! Made from tartan woven in Scotland for an authentic, natural look, our Ancient kilts are finished in the USA and custom-made just for you. Ancient kilts are better for warm-weather wear than Great kilts, as they have less fabric, and these are made with a cool and comfortable poly/viscose blend perfect for those who are allergic or don’t like wool.

What is an Ancient Kilt?

The Ancient Kilt was popularized by the movie Braveheart. Compared to the Great Kilt (worn in OUTLANDER: The Series) which is made from double-width tartan (up to 60 inches wide), the Ancient Kilt is made from a longer piece of single-width tartan (up to 30 inches wide).This means you don’t have the bulk of fabric above the belt that you would with a Great Kilt. Instead, the Ancient Kilt is made with an extra length of 2-3 yards of tartan, an integral part of the kilt, that becomes a plaid when fastened over your shoulder.

Why an Ancient Kilt instead of a Great Kilt?

For one thing they’re less expensive, because they’re made from less tartan. For another, they are a lot cooler to wear in hot weather. You’ll want a Great Kilt if you want your kilt to look just like the kilts in OUTLANDER: The series. However, if you live in Texas, or you plan to wear your kilt to a Ren-Fest in mid-summer heat anywhere but Alaska, you’ll appreciate the lighter, cooler, Ancient Kilt. (Or if you’re a “human furnace” like me, consider an OUTLANDER Phillabeg — lighter and cooler yet!)

Just like in OUTLANDER: The Series,  the Ancient Kilt is traditionally pleated each time you wear it. Pleating instructions will be included with your kilt (you can also download them here). Basically, you lay your kilt out on clean ground, the floor, or a bed. Pull fabric into pleats until it is nearly all used, leaving just enough to wrap around you. Then the whole works is held around you with your belt.

Cheater Pleats™

If you don’t want to pleat your kilt yourself, we offer Cheater Pleats™ as a convenient option. If you choose Cheater Pleats™, we’ll pleat the kilt for you, and stitch in a hidden waistband to hold it together. Once you belt it on, no one will know you didn’t pleat it yourself! Our standard options are pleat-to-sette, lightly ironed. If you would like different cheater pleat options, choose the “Custom” option, and add the Cheater Pleats™ product to your order in addition to your kilt.

NOTE — 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 select Cheater Pleats™ as an option.

Custom-made just for you! Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery. Please click for important information about custom-order items. We try to keep the OUTLANDER tartans in stock at all times, but if the tartan you have chosen is temporarily out of stock, you may need to wait up to 8 weeks for delivery. We will contact you if we expect any delays.


A 6 yard Ancient Kilt will fit up to about a 34 inch waist.
An 8 yard Ancient Kilt will fit up to about a 44 inch waist.
A 10 yard Ancient Kilt will fit 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 OUTLANDER Ancient Kilt:

  1. Kilt Waist: Measure your waist size in inches at your actual waist, where you usually wear your pants. This measurement will probably be 2-4 inches larger than your pants size.
  2. Kilt Length: Measure from your waist to about the middle of the knee. Have someone help you! If you bend even a little while trying to do it yourself, the measurement will be wrong.
