1. VAT, customs, and fees when buying online.



Buying online. General information for EU-citizens EU>

When you, as an EU-citizen, are ordering goods from another EU-country no taxes are to pay. You pay the price of kilt or accessory including VAT and freight, and it is delivered to your door step without extra cost. Could not be more simple.

When your kilt or accessory is to be sent from a non-EU country, i.e. a third-country, your own country's VAT and a customs clearance fee always apply.
And if the price exceeds 150 Euros or the equivalent in other currencies, a 12% customs duty applies too, and VAT hereof.

Due to the free-trade-agreement between EU and UK, there is NO customs duty on goods sent from UK to a an EU country, whatever their price, provided they are manufactured 100% in UK from materials, made in UK! Otherwise customs duty applies on the part of the product which is not British, if the value is exceeding 150 Euros.
At all times VAT and customs clearance fee are to pay, like from other third-countries.
Vendors in UK should deduct British VAT when selling to EU-citizens. Check before paying. In countries with a VAT-rate below the British there is something to save, whereas in EU countries with a higher VAT, like Denmark and Sweden, kilts shall in future be more expensive.
Due to the customs clearance fee all kilts shipped from Scotland, cheap or expensive, shall automatically become approx. 18 GBP more expensive.

Vendors of cheap custom kilts might send directly to you from Pakistan, even if their homepages indicate addresses within EU. This could mean VAT and customs clearance fee to be paid prior to having kilts and accessories handed over to you. But they might still be competive.



Why not again?

Like 2000 years ago we men can wear skirted garments today .

2. Utility kilts


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.

Roman Empire

When Emperor Augustus well 2000 years ago sent out a decree that
"all the world should be taxed", men were in skirts.



4. Man skirts and gender-netral skirts

In the past men have been wearing "skirts" as normal attire and without being regarded tranvestites or cross-dressers. Kilt wearers should benefit, would just more men be men enough to wear skirts again - in a strictly manly way.
Skirts designed for men are to buy, even if vendors are few.

Adidas

In Autumn 2022 Adidas has launched a gender-neutral skirt, which comes in two colours and sizes, which clearly show that gender-neutral is not just words. It definitely is made to also fit MEN.

Examples of countries are:
Adidas Austria, Adidas Denmark, Adidas Germany, Adidas Netherlands, Adidas Sweden, Adidas United Kingdom, Adidas USA.

Hiatus Kilts and skirts for men
In May 2020 Hiatus decided to "take a break for several months ... but to come back in 2021..." However, November 2022, nothing on their website indicates that the company should be back on the market.

Sous les jupes des hommes
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.

6. Skirts

Regular skirts, meaning designed for women, should be easy to find. But are they?
Women seem to prefer dresses over skirts these years, resulting in a decreasing supply. Add to that, that skirts (along with dresses) have become more feminine by design and fabrics. "Boyfriend" style denim skirts, which could be acceptable, accordingly have become rare in the stores, as well as online.
Looking at the links below you shall probably immediately realize that only very, very few skirts, if any, could come in question for a man to wear, does he emphasize a masculine appearance. Further there is the size issue. Either too long or too short or simply not big enough. I was about to remove the links, because of little relevance, but decided to keep them. At least they can serve as a warning. So good, we men have kilts.

Shorts

Shorts on men have been accepted almost everywhere and when.

7. Shorts

Men wearing kilts and skirts for comfort often also like wearing shorts, which, fortunately, nowadays are a commonplace thing. Therefore, links to vendors are not necessary. But perhaps to vendors of Lederhosen?

Lederhosen

50-60 years ago, every German boy would wear "Lederhosen", leather shorts, as daily attire. Until they were replaced by blue jeans. Due to fashion, and the fact that they became too expensive. Like with kilts, until cheaper imported ones have become a possibility.
Nowadays Lederhosen are seen in connection with the yearly "Oktoberfest" in Munich - like kilts at Scottish events. And then some men will just wear them when they feel like it.
Like men will wear kilts without any other reason than they are comfortable, different, looking good, probably healthier, versatile, and a valuable addition to an otherwise rather boring manly wardrobe.
