Highland Attire - outfit hire
offered a hire service for NZ, then reduced it to just the North Island
then just local (collect & return in person). Over the years of operation
the attitudes of people changed and we had kilts returned with stab wounds
in the groin area, faeces and semen stains. All frankly just disgusting
to the point the disrespect put us off providing the hire service.
Now we just provide advice and help where possible or relevant.
The range included....
Kilts.................Adult, Youth sizes
Jackets............Argyll/Craill, Prince Charlie, Gleann
.......................(Most of our jackets are the
Craill/Braemar or Gleann style)
Sporrans..........Dress, Day, Horse Hair (Military
Style), Small Boys
Hose & Garters with plain colour or tartan
Long Ghillie Brogue style Shoe Laces.
Plaids (Full or belted & Brooch)
Ladies Sash & Shoulder Brooch
We can still provide contacts for kilt hire, local or elsewhere.

Once we CUSTOM
MADE items for folk.
Obtaining a personal kilt for your wedding is a cultural
statement, and a kilt so procured is likely to be used
regularly in the future too. These days a kilt is
perfectly reasonable attire for going out in the
evening, to restaurants, theatre, the races, family
get togethers, etc. Kilt styles.
The standard design made was/is the Feilidh Beag (the small
kilt), which is the most common form of kilt today,
but you could also have various forms of Feilidh Mor
(the great kilt), or even casual kilts.
Leather Sporrans were made to the customers design, or
to one of our variable designs.
Brogue shoes conversion
into Ghillie brogues can also be
made to order. Many pipers in NZ pipe-bands wear the
ghillie brogue conversions.
