Paul Henry Kilts

Traditional and Contemporary kilts sewn to order                                           

There are lots of different way to pleat a tartan,  sometimes to the sett, but often to a dominant stripe. It means that the back of the kilt can look very different to the front. Traditionally military kilts were pleated to a line, which made re-sizing very easy.


With any new order a series of test pleatings are done in order to decide the best look, sometimes there are many options, sometimes only a few.


Here are 3 kilts, all in the same tartan but with 3 very different pleating arrangements
