Reasons I put it off: First, I have a beer belly. And I've wanted to get in better shape for a very long time. The last few years I've done just that, however, because of having a new baby, and a job change, and whatever other excuses I can come up with, I've put some weight back on. Buying a kilt was always meant to be my reward for losing the weight. Why would I get a kilt, then loose weight, then not be able to wear it because it's too big, right? Also, I didn't want to look foolish, a man with a big belly trying to wear a kilt, right? Well... these are stupid reasons, especially when considering this kilt specifically.
Reasons I'm glad I stopped putting it off: First, all reasons I had made up in my mind why I should wait were totally wrong. Second, This particular kilt solved all my fears and misconceptions about wearing a kilt all together.
So what did I find out when I opened the package and put it on the very first time? It fit like a glove... Mostly because I did what I was supposed to do. I measured my waste, around the navel area, which was uncomfortable and shocking when I saw the number. But it was the truth, and I needed to see it. What I found was that when I ordered that size, and tried it on, it fit well, but was at the largest adjustment size. I was super excited to find this out. It meant I could still take a few inches off the waste and still wear the same kilt. There are three adjustment sizes just around the belt area alone. But beyond that, there are two buckled strap adjustments below the belt area that give even more customized adjustments. That means, no matter what your waste shape, for me it was bigger at the navel, but smaller at the waste where I normally wear pants, the kilt can be adjusted in a contouring way to fit your shape. I was ecstatic! Now I know for sure that as I take the belly off, and my shape changes, the kilt will change with me.
So, some things you should know... First, it does have two pockets which aren't amazing, but still useful. Around the house, they are great for dropping your phone or reading glasses in, but not sure I would use them for my wallet and keys and other things I might need when leaving the house, but that's a personal thing. They certainly could work for that since they are deeper and wider than normal jeans pockets that most people use for such things. Personally, I've carried what I call a man bag for a few years now. I do so because I like having a pocket knife, a multi-tool, a few band-aides, zip ties, etc... as well as phone wallet and keys, and I really don't like the feeling of full pockets. And not to offend anyone, but I don't consider myself a hipster or a feminist, even though I support anyone who defines themselves that way... and even though my son says dad has a purse. In fact, if I weren't secure in my masculinity, and proud of it, I wouldn't consider carrying a man bag, or wear a kilt for that matter. Sorry, off topic, the pockets are handy around the house.
The biggest thing to get used to is where the kilt is worn. I've worn jeans or pants my whole life, that ride on the hips. I wasn't use to wearing something at navel level. So it did feel odd for a short time. And I can't speak or all men who wear kilts, but wearing something with a very wide or thick waste line, by that I mean the area from the top of the kilt, where the snaps are, to the bottom of where the lower buckled strap is adjustable, feels a lot like wearing support belt for lifting. Now, I'm not saying wearing the kilt gives you support for lifting heavy things, it just feels the same as such support belts because of where it's worn. But what I have noticed is, at least for me and I can't say you will get the same results, is that it's improved my posture. I feel myself sitting up straighter and standing taller. So I feel like it's a game changer, and much superior than regular pants that let you slouch and your belly just hang out.
So, I love it. My wife says it looks really, really good on me. I get complements when I go out. And, in all honesty, I haven't worn anything else since I got it. I definitely intend to buy more, maybe in different styles or colors.
On a side note, I live in Minnesota, and todays temp. when I took my dog out this morning was 6F. And I just didn't care. I figure, women wear skirts and dresses all year long, even in the winter, and no one asks them if they are cold wearing such things, like it's ridiculous to do so. Why would it be different for a man? So... if you've ever even considered it, just do it.
I measured myself as 46" around where I felt the top should be, and had my spouse help to confirm it (measure twice, buy one to start!). I ordered the XL in black.
The kilt has double snaps on the inside and outside, in three positions. For me, the middle snaps were a teensy bit loose but the tightest ones were a good, snug fit. The outer snaps secure it, and the double buckles provide an extra degree of fit. The belt loops are a bit over 3", so use your widest belt. The side pockets might take a little getting used to; two snaps keep them closed and prevent things from falling out while sitting. Even with them closed, there is enough room to sneak in some fingers to pull out a handkerchief, but not enough to sneak a hand in or pull out a wallet (without undoing one of the snaps). But there's plenty of room for whatever you carry.
After an evening out (and compliments from strangers just about everywhere we went) I threw it in the dryer on low for about 30 minutes to shake out the wrinkles and lint. It shrunk a little bit (maybe one notch) but relaxed again by morning, so I would advise following the directions and hang drying it after washing.
Wearing it, there's a sense of "airyness" you don't get even with roomy cargo shorts. It is very comfortable, especially on warm summer days.
I took my spouse's recommendation of wearing boxer briefs to prevent chafing, and I don't regret it. And it looks good with combat boots, work boots, high tops or hiking boots.
I already ordered another pair (the Stowaway, with the pants-like pockets) but a size smaller and in grey. This could be the ultimate in comfortable summer wear!

Based on other reviews I ordered one size smaller and it fit just right.
The quality is reasonable for it's cost.
I can totally see myself not wanting to take it off :)
