Planning a traditional Celtic wedding or want to make a splash at your holiday office party? Skip the suit and slide into a kilt from Kilt Rental USA. From tartans to ties, Kilt Rental USA offers packages for any occasion.

The history of the kilt actually stretches back to the 16th century. Although the kilt is a piece of traditional Scottish highland dress, it wasn’t until the 19th century that the kilt was adopted as a symbol of national identity. Originally, the kilt was a full length garment whose upper half could be worn as a cloak. The small or walking kilt came along some time in the late 17th or early 18th century and is essentially the bottom half of the original piece.

Kilt Rental USA was born in 1998, when Michael McClanathan, while playing with a local Arizona pipe band, decided his hometown of Scottsdale should have a local Scottish supplier. After doing some research, McClanathan discovered that most shops that provided kilt rentals charged an extra fee for shirts, ties, kilt hose, and shipping. Looking to carve his own niche in the market, McClanathan offered all-inclusive rental packages with no hidden fees.

Located near the Scottsdale Airport, Kilt Rental USA and its sister company Claymore Imports offer a wide selection of kilts, bagpipes, and accessories. Customers in need of a kilt for a wedding, party, prom, or other special event can choose from over 60 rental tartans made from 100% wool and woven by mills in Scotland, England, and Wales. The company also offers free cloth samples to its customers to ensure there are no surprises at delivery, as well as a variety of rental accessories and traditional Scottish wedding gifts.
