The Gladiator – Leather Kilt
We are now taking orders for our Leather aka The Beast, Utilikilts. These kilts are hand cut individually and sewn to order!
The Beast is made of thick and heavy 3.5 oz. Motorcycle-Jacket grade leather. It’s the warmest, heaviest, most expensive, most amazingly badass, most go-to-a-bar-and-have-women-ask-to-touch-your-kilt garment we offer. This baby isn’t for the meek. The Beast is for real men. Big men. Men who aren’t afraid to wear large swaths of cow around their waists. Men who take secret pleasure in making vegans and bovine activists cry.
The Beast features two front pockets like a pair of jeans, and they are about as big as those found on the Mocker. Additionally, the Beast has two patch pockets on the back with the laser etched Utilikilts Trinity Logo. These pockets are flapless, fit tight against your ass, and work just like the back pockets on a pair of jeans.
Adjustability: The Beast features two adjustable ‘floating’ pleats, allowing you to tighten or loosen it up to 2.5 inches in either direction: that’s 5 inches overall! You can modify how tight the Beast is around your waist and butt and generally make it fit now matter how many beers or burritos you’ve gone through in a night.
Want in on this action? Give us a call and for the devilishly cool price of $666 you can look down at your pleather-wearing peers and scoff in their general nowhere-near-as-cool-as-you direction.
TLDR: ORDER THE SAME SIZE AS YOUR PANTS.
If you’re a 34 in Levis, you’re a 34 in Utilikilts. Done.
If you haven’t put on a pair pants since 2004 and have been living under a rock since 2015, first of all: Welcome back!
We did away with the “Honest Inch” System awhile ago. Cool as it was, 95% of all returns were due to sizing issues. After the advent of the Switchback, our adjustability feature–made with Military Grade 2″ Velcro combined with a flexible shock cord ‘asset’ (like a corset for your ass)–Utilikilts are now sized within a range of inches, up to 15% of the waistband measurement so now you can wear it out before you grow out of it.
Still not clear? Wrap a tape around your beltline where you plan to wear your kilt. No, not a metal tape measure, Silly. A seamstress tape. What’s it say? Put that number in the middle of one of the size ranges below. The number on your pants does not accurately reflect the measurement in INCHES around your beltline. And now you know.

What about the length of my Utilikilt*?
We make three standard lengths.
TLDR: Taller than 6’4″? you’re a 24.5… Shorter than 5’10”? You’re a 21.5…Everyone else? 23″. Done.
|65″ up to 70″||21.5″|
|70″ up to 74″||23″|
|74″ up to 78″||24.5″|
If you are all torso walking on a pair of stumpy legs or the inverse of that, following our handy sizing instructions will get you right where you want to be. The best way to find your fit is by kneeling and measuring your side, from the top of your pants to the floor (like this). Don’t bend your torso while measuring, it skews the reading. You’ll need something stiff (a yardstick, you pervert!), a mirror, or the help of a friend. The waistband should sit on your hips where your pants normally ride. The hem should rest between the bottom and center of the kneecap.
