Kilt belts, also known as Montrose belts are specifically designed to decorate the top of the kilt in the absence of a waistcoat. The buckles are sold separately from the belts so that you can choose any buckle to match any belt.
The kilt belts are sold in different waist sizes, each of which has a good amount of adjustment. It is important that when you choose the belt you like, you also select the correct size. This sounds straightforward but there are pitfalls.
The one thing most people do when selecting a belt size is simply select the waist size that their trousers are. This however will undoubtedly result in the belt being too tight. There are two reasons for this. First of all the natural waist where the kilt is worn is usually slightly bigger than the lower waist where fashion trousers are worn. Secondly the kilt is a very thick quality garment and this adds two inches round the natural waist.
To choose the correct size of belt, we suggest you select the size 2-3 inches larger than your kilt waist size. (e.g. 32 waist = 34 belt, 29 waist = 32 belt.) If you do not know the waist size of your kilt, simply measure round your stomach and add 2-3 inches to that measurement.
