1. Buying online - EU-Citizens

No matter where you buy online, shipment must be paid for. Within the European Union, it is rather cheap. Otherwise, the longer the vendor from Europe, the higher the shipment cost.
An exception is Pakistan, from where shipment in general is cheaper than from UK or USA. But take a look on the websites. You might be positively surprised.

All countries, not being part of the European Union, are considered 3rd countries which means additional cost:


Be careful with the customs duty. On a kilt, amounting to 149 EUR, approx. 160 USD, no customs duty applies. But if it is 161 Dollars, you must pay 12% duty of kilt plus of shipment. And of this, also import duty. Therefore, just one Euro or Dollar too many can cost you around 30 Euro more in taxes.

A trade agreement between the Union and UK means that customs duty never applies, provided the goods are manufactured in UK.
If you from a British vendor buy a kilt and accessories, imported from Pakistan, and the value exceeds 150 Euros, customs duty must be paid.

Import duty replaces your country's VAT and is the same rate. When buying in UK, the vendor shall deduct the 20% British VAT, in order that you shall not pay it twice. Therefore, it is more or less neutral.

A customs declaration fee to be paid to the courier company always applies for goods, shipped from a 3rd country. It varies with the courier but may be up to 20 EUR, making the fee the dark horse in the calculation. Some courier companies might charge you less for small orders.

Pakistani kilt manufacturers will often register companies in Europe, US etc. If you order a custom kilt or accessories from a branch within the European Union, for example Germany and France, you should avoid taxes, and sometimes you may, but according to the business model, the goods might be shipped directly to you from Pakistan. Obviously, a grey zone, for which this symbol is used:


This might also apply for Pakistani vendors with a business address in UK and USA. But in this case, shipped from Pakistan might simply mean cheaper shipment cost. If in doubt, or it seems unclear, ask the vendor. By all means, be prepared to pay taxes.

2. Utility kilts and other kilt variants

Utility kilts are the American take on a kilt. Judged from the increasing number of vendors, not just in the US but also in Britain, France, Germany etc. there must be a growing market for them. Their design is not defined like with traditional kilts. Many models, with their excessive use of metal and cargo pockets, seem to aim at not just traditional kilt wearers wanting more alternatives, but to various sub-groups of society. Nevertheless, you might be able to find rather clean-designed utility kilts with most vendors.

Very many of the vendors listed below, especially those based in Pakistan, will also make camouflage kilts, denim kilts, and leather kilts, some of them in a rather traditional kilt design, others from kind of utility kilt design to being just skirts.

Why not again?
When Emperor Augustus, well 2000 years ago, sent out a decree that "all the world should be taxed", Roman men were wearing skirts as a natural thing.
Why shouldn't men 2024 wear skirted garments again, whenever they felt like it? .

Despite the brand name, indicating man skirts, the people behind Sous les jupes des hommes seem to position their products as kilts. Neo-traditional kilts they could be called, very well-designed and should definitely have future potential.
