FAQ's

How Do I Determine What Size Angry Bastard Utility Kilt I Need?

Waist Measurements:
Angry Bastard Utility Kilts range in Men's Waist Sizes from 28 - 56. We do have an option for larger sizes, but you will need to contact us directly, (800) 948-0456, so we can help you get the proper measurements for your kilt.

That said, Angry Bastard Utility Kilts ARE NOT BASED on American jean sizes. No two jean manufacturers use a standard measuring system. For example: A size 34, in a pant size, may not truly measure out to be 34 inches as you would expect. Jean manufacturers play to your ego and with Americans eating more junk and fast food, well.... you know...you just aren't your petite selves anymore. Angry Bastard Utility Kilts ARE however build on the Standard American Inch system. That means, if you order a 34 inch waist, you will receive a 34 inch waist.

Length Measurements:
Standard lengths for Angry Bastard Utility Kilts range from 22", 24", 26", 28" and 30". You may choose the length under the options with the kilt you choose. Before ordering, take the necessary steps as per our instructions on how to measure your kilt for length, here. >>

If you do not find the length you need in the options of the kilt you wish to purchase, please call us and we will make every effort to build you the kilt with the proper waist size and length. However, if you do not follow our instructions for measurement and you order the wrong waist and/or length size and need to have it altered, you will incur shipping fees to us and back to you, along with alteration fees. Like the old carpenter told me when I was an apprentice, "Measure twice, cut once". You don't want to pay out for more materials and shipping if you could have received the right size in the first place.


Why Do You Use #10-15 oz and 10 oz Duck Cloth For Your Utility Kilts
Angry Bastard Utility Kilts are built just for what they are named for....UTILITY. Or in other words, made to be useful and not for just mere decoration. Angry Bastard Utility Kilts are built for people who work hard, play hard and need a garment that will hold up to harsh conditions of work and play environments.  Some of our competitors call their kilts "utility kilts", but if you compare an Angry Bastard Utility Kilt to theirs, you will see the obvious difference in the quality of the fabric and the craftsmanship in the construction of our kilts. These kilts aren't made to play Scotsman in. They aren't made to wear once to a Ren Fair. They are made to work in and to move around in.

Cotton/Polyester and Twill fabric is the choice fabric of our competitors. These fabrics are not made to be durable or water resistant. Cotton/Polyester and Twill won't stand up to the every day rigors of a construction job. They won't stand up to the rough and rugged outdoors environments for those who don't stay on the main trail.

Angry Bastard's Utility Kilts are kilts that will stand up to most environments and maintain their integrity and function. The construction of the fabric make for a tighter weave, giving the fabric a higher durability rating and making it tear and water resistant. All the attributes you want from a utility kilt. 

Why do we use duck cloth? Because we use only the best materials that will take the punishment you are going to give them. And...we wear what we build. If it isn't good enough for us, then it isn't good enough for our customers.

Why Does A Size 56 Cost More Than A Size 46?
Larger sizes require more material and it takes more time to build that kilt. It is just that simple. You go to buy tack for a draft horse, you are gonna pay more for that tack than you would for a Shetland pony. Big men usually know that going in. We been there before.
