Kilts made to measure
Wanting a kilt in wool, which really fits you when it comes to waist and length and where you'll have a lot of tartans to choose from, go for a kilt made to measure. It doesn't have to be that expensive.
Only kiltmakers giving you the option to order your kilt online, according to your measures, are listed below.
Scotweb – a major Scottish kilt vendor – is changing their name to CLAN
and their website address to clan.com
and their new website is - in contrary to their old Scotweb one - extremely well designed.
You can have kilts in all price groups, except for cheap imported ones.
Instead they have their most interesting "Essential Scotweb Casual Kilt
It is a 5 yard made-to-measure kilt in UK-made poly viscose and it comes in 70 different tartans. The price is no more than £137 for 67 of them. Three are £163.
Talking, like we do here, casual-first
this kilt seems to really give a lot of value for money!
CLAN also sells a five yard made-to-measure Balmoral casual kilt
"with a contemporary lower-waisted cut" which isn't a bad thing for a kilt to be worn casually. Prices start at £194 and, best of all, actually a lot of tartans are available at that price.

House of Henderson
House of Tartans
House of Tartans, ‘Home of the World’s First Tartan Database’ also offers kilts and accessories. Most interesting for casual or active wear might be their machine washable, made to measure Sportskilts and Starter Kilts in PV from a British mill. The Sportskilt comes with invisible side pockets.
Living in Europe you must
add 20% British VAT to their prices.
Houston Traditional Kiltmakers
By Kilts & more you can have a 4 yard box pleated kilt at the same price as a 5 yard kilt pleated to the stripe. (A box pleated kilt takes less yardage).

At Kilt Society they have a vision of making the kilt everyday attire for men wherever they live; an attitude which to my opinion should be highly appreciated.
Also, Kilt Society might have one of the best designed web pages, making it incredibly easy to order a kilt to measure or other items.
Have a look at their "Kilt Society Custom Made Kilts" in 5 and 8 yard.
For smart casual wear I should recommend the 5 yard kilt. You have several hundred tartans to choose from. On most tartans you’ll have to pay an additional fee, but actually it is not difficult to find tartans which shall not cost you extra. It should be a natural thing, but unfortunately, on the kilt market basic prices are sometimes pure theory.

Besides beieng a kiltmaker Mathew A.C. Newsome has also written some fine articles on kilt wearing.
At Scottish Kilts you are not limited to the 24" standard length on affordable kilts.
Being really light weight the Sport Kilt is just perfect in a hot climate. For informal occasions where you might otherwise feel comfortable in shorts, it is great – provided you don’t expect it to be a traditional kilt. I don’t. And it is not. It’s an unpretentious kilted garment of its own and for the mentioned purposes I can highly recommend it.

USA Kilts.com makes a very nice 4 yard kilt according to your measures, called USA Kilts Casual. Being closed by means of Velcro it is more flexible regarding waist size, and when a kilt is worn together with a wide belt no one can see that the buckles and straps are missing. The lack of metal parts also means that it shall set no alarms at airports.
