Utilikilt Original black
Shortly after The Standard
, which, due to its construction, was more a skirt than a kilt this one, The Original
, was launched. For a few years
customers would have a choice of the Utilikilt "skirt" and the Utilikilt "kilt". Then The Standard to the regret of many customers disappeared.
had, like today its successor, The Spartan
aprons like a traditional kilt, only they were not as wide. To compensate they were - and still are - secured by buttons, rather than straps and buckles on a traditional kilt.
Judged from the many pictures to find on the internet the black version might be the most popular Utilikilt. It can be worn at jeans waist level or higher, like you would normally wear a traditional kilt.
No rules. It can be traditional kilt length, it can a little bit longer - you often see Utilikilts covering the wearer's knees - or a little bit shorter. It is all up to you. Utilikilts are to order in three lengths, 21.5", 23", and 24.5".
This kilt is 21.5" long and will, when worn low, almost reach down to the top of my knees. But I'll often wear it (and my other Utilikilts) higher.
I prefer kilts to be to the short side.
