Custom Made Scottish Kilt Costumes For Men
The success of period pieces like Outlander bring a natural interest in costumes for men for two purposes, Halloween fun or cosplay. So if you plan on visiting the Outlander folks at Comic Con, you’ll want to dress the part, right? In this case, Scottish kilts for men are the hot topic with fans of cosplay.
So let’s focus first on the historical version of the Scottish kilts for men like we see on Outlander. The period was the 1740’s in the Scottish highlands.
Who knew they were so…interesting? Where I could, I’ve included more authentic costumes and accessories for those who want them for cosplay or reenactments.
Did you know, though, that the Scottish kilts for men portrayed most frequently on the Outlander TV series are called ‘great kilts?’ Better than that, the true name for these clothes was ‘belted plaid.’ There, now we learned something right?
Looking for a fancy dress costume for cosplay? Are you going to a festival or reenactment? I know you want your belted plaid to look as authentic as possible. So, how about a handmade, custom kilt? Nice, right? Just look at these:

Today’s Scottish Kilts For Men Originated With The Great Kilt
As we see in the Outlander series on TV today, Scottish kilts for men looked a bit…different then than the typical Scottish kilts for men look now. It’s also a matter of location too. Great kilts, or belted plaids, were most common in the Highlands.
The great kilt we see most often on Outlander, and other movies about the Jacobite period were more utilitarian than any kind of fashion statement.
A highlander’s great kilt was his blanket, his raincoat, his cloak and his daily wear. All he needed was a shirt and a belt and his boots. The more care modern entertainment puts into depicting authentic period wear, the happier I am. The great kilt as I’ve seen it on Outlander not only looks nice (!), but tend to look closer to what the Scottish kilts for men in the Highlands were at the time.
