The origins of The Black Watch can be traced back to 1725, when George II requested a series of Independent Companies to watch and patrol areas of the Highlands. The primary purpose of the Companies was to prevent smuggling and cattle rustling following the Jacobite Rising of 1715. The Companies originally wore kilts of locally woven tartan and comprised of groups of local men, most of whom were trusted and respected members of society.
Sept: The Black Watch Tartan is a universal tartan and can be worn by any individual.

Have someone help you with these measurements if possible.
To obtain the waist measurement, measure around the navel. This is your natural waist. It's important to relax (no sucking it in) when taking this measurement so the kilt will not fit too tightly. Remember, a kilt is all about comfort!
To obtain the length, measure the distance between the natural waist and the middle of the knee cap. A good way to do this is to kneel on the floor and measure the distance from the natural waist to the floor.
If you don't see your size, no worries! Just message us with your measurements and the tartan you would like.
