For those of you who don’t know, the first ever Slater Menswear store was opened in Glasgow in 1973 and because of our Scottish roots, we have a passion for good-quality highlandwear.

As well as our range of suits, casualwear, footwear and accessories, we have a whole host of highlandwear available to view online and hire in-store. Not to toot our own horn but we believe we’re one of the best brands in the business when you want to rent a kilt.

Although we have a range of highland accessories available for purchase, our kilts are hire only and there’s some very good reasons for that which we’re going to share with you today.

Buying a Kilt is Costly

One of the main reasons we’d recommend you rent a kilt for a special occasion opposed to buying one is the cost. Our kilt hire starts at just £49.00 and for that price you don’t just get a great kilt for your occasion but all your alteration costs are covered too, saving you money where you would have to spend it if you bought one.

When it comes to kitting out a whole wedding party in kilts, that could get very expensive if you were paying for everyone’s but when you choose to rent a kilt with Slater Menswear, groomsmen of all ages can match in authentic tartan kilts without breaking the bank.

Renting Keeps Your Options Open

Because the cost of buying a kilt is relatively high, you’re more than likely to be in a position where you can only afford to buy one which really restricts your options. When you choose to hire a kilt from Slaters, the options for which tartan you choose are endless and because you’re renting, if you want to sport a different kilt for every occasion you attend, you can!

Whether you choose your tartan based on the colour scheme of the event or your family heritage, you can explore a vast selection of both classic and modern tartans here and choose the one that is right for you.

From the classic Royal Stewart tartan to a prestige Scottish Spirit tartan, you’ll find the perfect kilt for you here!

The Hard Work is Done for You

Choosing the kilt is just the first part of the process, it’s then time to choose the shirt, jacket and accessories to match which when you’re buying is just additional costs and extra effort. When you rent a kilt from us, we offer the option to hire kilts both individually or as part of a full highland outfit, with outfit hire prices starting from £89.00.

We do all the hard work for you by pre-deciding which jackets and shirts compliment which kilts and creating dapper yet traditional highland outfits that are perfect for all your formal occasions in both Scotland and beyond.
