Description

The ‘Corps of Royal Engineers Tartan’ is the only officially registered tartan in the world, to pay respect to the Corps of Royal Engineers. The Corps of Royal Engineers Tartan is officially recognised by the Corps of Royal Engineers.  And is proudly worn by former and current Corps of Royal Engineers personnel and their families, friends and supporters all over the world.

We have created this Authentic Tartan exclusively for you. Weaving the DNA of the Corps of Royal Engineers into its very core, by incorporating these significant colours:-
DARK BLUE & CRIMSON: Are historical colours associated with the Corps of Royal Engineers, visible on their stable belt and TRF patch.
SILVERY GREY: Represents the Corps of Royal Engineers crest buckle featured on their stable belt.
BLACK: Is respect for all fallen Corps of Royal Engineers comrades.

Your unique British made Corps of Royal Engineers Tartan Kilt is made from the finest quality medium weight (13 oz.) Corps of Royal Engineers Tartan.  Made with the full 8 yards, with no amount of effort nor material spared during the making! The traditional selvedge is the proper historical edge favoured by the military and pipe bands and all those ‘In the know about kilts!’  Taking longer to weave than the ‘modern tuck-in method’, the traditional process used to create your Corps of Royal Engineers Tartan kilt produces a far superior finish. Hand marked in the traditional way to ensure both accuracy of the fit as well as the accuracy of your original Corps of Royal Engineers Tartan design throughout the pleated area.  All straps and buckles are sewn by hand and the pleats are machined for extra strength.  With a high quality canvas and lining to ensure exceptional comfort and security for the individual.  A kilt of this calibre would normally cost around £600 plus.

Ordering Timescales:
It’s worth knowing, that when you are planning your own personal diary for when you would like to be wearing your new Corps of Royal Engineers Tartan Kilt. That it can take around 4 to 7 weeks to be made, from the date of your order when the Corps of Royal Engineers Tartan is in stock, and up to 16 weeks when we need more tartan woven.  If your kilt is for a specific event with a timely deadline date, then please place your order as much in advance as possible.  We will always try our best to have your kilt ready in time, but a bit of Corps of Royal Engineers forward planning will really help us!

Returns:
Due to the ‘made to measure’ nature of this kilt, returns cannot be accepted for ill-fitting garments.  The responsibility of the fit is with the customer.  Which is why we request you to ‘double check’ your measurements in accordance to ‘our measuring guide’ and to have a helper assist you, not to self-measure.

We are very proud to be Official M.O.D. Licensees. Which means, for every product we sell that features any of the Tri-services crests, we give a percentage to the relevant M.O.D. Benevolent Fund.

All tartans in our range are worn by current, former, future personnel and their families, friends and supporters. And are not part of any official uniform.
