Utililt Original

A forest green kilt.    

Other kilt variants

A kilt must not have tartans.

Kilts can also be solid coloured.
And the fabric needs not be wool or PV. Tweed kilts are gaining popularity. Or how about a kilt in a nice camouflage pattern, or denim, or leather?.
They can be in traditional kilt style, or their design can deviate to the extent where they become utility kilts - or skirts.
Many kilt makers or vendors have these kilts in their assortment. Here, I shall simply link to already mentioned vendors if they are also offering these kilts.

Solid kilts are mostly about the same price as equivalent tartan kilts. Tweed kilts shall be more expensive than wool kilts. 'Imported' denim kilts shall often cost more than tartan kilts from the same vendor, whereas 'locally' manufactured denim kilts may be cheaper as their tartan cousins.
Camouflage kilts shall be cheaper, whereas leather kilts, what is to expect, are way more expensive than equivalent kilts made of in wool or PV.

Solid coloured kilts

No doubt, what most people connect with a kilt are the tartans. Probably they more than anything else signalize kilt. But, like just said, tartans are not a must.

Typically, solid kilts are black, but they may also be grey, green, blue, brown, and red.

St. Kilda Kilts Scotland
When you order one of their 5-yard casual kilts, made of 11 oz. high quality poly viskose from British Marton Mills, you can, besides in about 80 tartans, have it in solid black as well as in very many shades of blue, green, grey, and brown, making these kilts definitely something to go for if you are in the market for a fine solid kilt.
Add to this, most attractive prices.

Several Camo kilts are to have.

If you connect camouflage with a military look, this does not have to be the case.

CLAN makes four traditional-styled camo kilts to your measures. Two of them, the Artic Camouflage Casual and the Urban Camouflage Casual are in no way looking like combat kilts, but just fashion kilts for smart casual wear.

You can have them very casual, most often in utility kilt style:

Paul Henry is known for making very nice denim kilts. They are around £200 for a 5-yarder.

Denim kilt by Championkilts.com
An example of a denim utility kilt. This one is from Championkilts and I like its detachable pockets. When you need them, attach them; when you can do without them, leave them at home and enjoy a much cleaner design.
The kilt is also available in blue denim, which I think I should prefer, more destinguishing it from 'ordinary' utility kilts, and in a darker indigo blue. Often you have to pay extra for blue denim compared to black, but here you can have it at no extra cost.

Linen Wedding Dress
A wedding dress, you might ask, what on earth has that with something like a kilt to do?
Well, that Scottish men will often wear a kilt at their wedding, is a well-known fact, even if, most often, a kilt outfit is to replace a white-tie suit. There are weddings, however, where something more casual are asked for. Chances are, you have heard about or even witnessed grooms in dress shorts, or utility kilts, or just some nice jeans

The Lithuanian company, Linen Wedding Dress has specialized in wedding clothes, made of linen for both women and men.
As an alternative to their men's trousers, whether part of a suit or not, Linen Wedding Dress are offering a good looking linen kilt. Being not a traditional kilt, it is here considered a kilt variant.
It is no longer available in the checkered version, shown here, but you can have it in no less than 26 different solid colours.
Should you want one, contact Linen Wedding Dress, and they will give you all instructions regarding measurements.

Now, a wedding, hopefully, is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and you might already be married. Nevertheless, this shall not prevent you from ordering one of these linen kilts and wear it where and when you feel like it. The fabric is medium weight and is washed before the kilt is sewn. Price seems good.

Contemporary kilts

1stCentury Kilts
Expensive top-quality kilts where innovation is based upon tradition. According to Howie R. Nicholsby, founder and owner of 21st Century Kilts, the kilt should be an alternative to trousers and for every man to use, casual or formal:

“My aim is to give men throughout the world a realistic alternative to trousers. Pioneering the next step of its evolution, 21st Century Kilts is true to the original kilt which was everyday clothing. Casual or formal a kilt should be an option for any man from anywhere who can realize they are part of the history of an international garment."
