The main difference between 5-yard and 8-yard
kilt is, the amount of the fabric is used in the kilts. This difference also
affects in different features of kilt, especially in kilt pleats and weight.
PLEATS: The front of both the kilts looks
similar to each other with two layers of fabric lying flat one over the other.
The difference is on the back pleated section. As the more fabric is required
in 8-yard kilt that we make more pleats to use all the cloth. Pleats are more
densely folded and look less open as you move.
WEIGHT: 5-yard kilt is about 37.5% lighter
than 8-yard kilt, though the exact weight of your kilt will vary according to
the tartan you chose from our range of 22 clan tartans. Due to being light
weight 5-yard kilt is called causal kilts.
TRADITION: 8-yard kilts are called traditional
Scottish kilts, three more yards of material give the kilt an extra fullness
for look that is called confidence, heritage, and pride. 8-yard kilt has deeper
pleats that’s why kilt will hang and swing better.
