Sitting on pleats
Permalink  
 


I am wondering how much sitting with a kilt on affects the pleats.

Do you have to keep ironing them to keep them nice looking?

the heavier the fabric, the less the issue. You will learn how to sweep your pleats as you sit. search for the video on Xmarks showing this.

make sure you dont use an iron directly in the wool but use a damp cloth or send to dry cleaner for pressing. I have not done this often

They usually fade after a while of walking around, but if they don't I personally recommend a dry cleaner that knows about working with kilts and wool ( be careful though) or a steamer. I bought a steamer at Wallyworld for cheap and it does a good job. For long road trips I recommend wearing sport shorts and putting on the kilt when you arrive, saves the pleats and the kilt looks crisp when you get to your destination.

thanks Eric, I are wearing my kilt this weekend but it only about  a 20 minute drive but in July I am riding my motorcycle to PA but I will be wearing my armor on the bike but will put the kilt on when I get there.

How do you go about finding a dry cleaner?  just call around?

We have a local cleaner here that sews the pleast before pressing just the way a new kilt comes from Scotland. That keeps everything aligned when pressing.
