The photo at the top is the Old Fool in the latest acquisition. It is the cheapest kilt on the market at $28.95 plus very fast shipping of $9.00. It is from Stillwater Kilts in Minnesota and is called "the Thrifty Kilt". It looks traditional and is styled as such but it is made of acrylic. Acrylic is not my favorite fabric but it is cheap and it is wash and wear. Acrylic burns and melts easily. They are made in Pakistan and very light. Just right for my climate.
For myself I buy them a little large then sew down the pleats to my specifications, hem to the correct length and add a pocket. I have an everyday sporran but I don't care for them. For those that don't know a sporran is a purse but then so is a fanny bag, briefcase or a hand carried backpack. Somehow the word purse has taken on gender but when I was young my grandfather carried his money in a purse in his pocket and purse is what he called it.
I have two of these kilts now both modified. The first is starting to show wear but it has a lot of life left.
Soon I'll post the makeshift quick pockets I made.
