We simply have the best quality for the price. Our kilts are indeed made with acrylic wool rather than old sheep’s wool for its many benefits. While still keeping the quality 16oz fabric, our acrylic wool stays cooler compared to a sheep wool kilt. Acrylic wool has also proven to be more durable, affordable, and long-lasting than sheep wool. Acrylic wool will pass through the years without any damage due to moths. Cheaper 13oz kilts sold on the market will start to fuzz and show signs of deterioration after the first few times they are worn, whereas our reinforced 16oz fabric is much less susceptible to such simple wear-and-tear.
On the inside, each of our kilts have a true hand-stitched, non-dyed muslin interior sweat panel with high quality interfacing to keep you even cooler. Although dyed linings may match the kilt, those dyes can bleed and stain your shirt. Avoid the inconvenience and extra cost of trashing a stained shirt by buying a high quality kilt from Atlanta Kilts.
On the outside, our kilts have invisible front facing stitching. The sparkling die-cast metal buckles on our kilts are much sturdier than the flimsy stamped metal buckles of other kilt sellers. Unlike other kilt makers, we don’t cut corners by using lower-quality imitation leather; nor do we skimp out on strap thickness. We ensure that all of our straps are one-eighth of an inch thick and made out of 100% genuine leather.
Yes, there may be cheaper kilts out there, but you will find they are much cheaper in quality as well. You will not find a better quality for the price we offer. Since this is a lifelong investment, make it last a lifetime and go with affordable quality.
