SSAFA Tartan Kilt
This unique SSAFA Kilt is made in the same stunning SSAFA Tartan design and colours as the SSAFA Tartan Scarf. It is worn with pride in the UK and worldwide, in celebration of all the great work the ‘SSAFA The Armed Forces Charity’ do.
You can enjoy wearing this fabulous kilt at any special occasions and events, instead of having to splash out on new suits every year. And there’s nothing more handsome than a man in a kilt, they always steal the limelight! Perfect for weddings, for all family occasions, all manner of personal occasions and for SSAFA reunions and events of course!
The SSAFA Tartan Kilt is made to the exact specifications of each individual. The attention to detail throughout the hand worked areas of the process creates an exceptional garment. In our opinion, far superior in quality to the fully machine made kilts. Made in the traditional and authentic manner with the ‘traditional selvedge technique’.
Your kilt will quickly grow into being your preferred garment of choice to wear for all your very special events in life to come! The longevity of a kilt is amazing, it is a much better investment than a suit. With it being fully adjustable you will be able to wear it for years to come! And we know you will get a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction from wearing it. Where memories will be created, captured and remembered for posterity. And your SSAFA Tartan Kilt will naturally become a genuine family heirloom. We feel this is very important, therefore every kilt made, comes complete with a brass disc engraved with your own unique ‘personalised information’ and is hand sewn into the inside of the kilt apron. All of our kilts also come with a matching pair of SSAFA Tartan flashes and garters.
You are advised to order well in advance as kilts are an all year round popular item of clothing.

The ‘SSAFA Tartan’ is the only officially registered tartan in the world, to pay respect to the SSAFA. The SSAFA Tartan is officially recognised by the SSAFA and is proudly worn by supporters all over the world.
We have created this Authentic Tartan exclusively for you. Weaving the DNA of SSAFA into its very core, by incorporating these significant colours:-
BLUE, RED, LIGHT BLUE: Represents the colours of the SSAFA logo. Signifying the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families they support, attached to The Royal Navy, The British Army and The Royal Air Force.
BLACK: Is for continual respect for all fallen comrades.
WHITE: Signifies hope for everyone going through challenging times.
Your unique British made SSAFA Tartan Kilt is made from the finest quality medium weight (13 oz.) SSAFA 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 SSAFA 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 SSAFA 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.
It’s worth knowing, that when you are planning your own personal diary for when you would like to be wearing your new SSAFA Tartan Kilt. That it can take around 4 to 7 weeks to be made, from the date of your order when the SSAFA 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 forward planning will really help us!
