Kilt Tailor?

#1
Mods: Sorry -- this is posted elsewhere, but I thought I'd have a better chance of reaching the target audience here. :)

'Scuse me, gents...

Does anyone know of a good, reasonably priced tailor for kilt alterations in the Warminster area? (Blandford would also be OK.)

Thank you in advance!

pm Abacus, he may know someone
Hahaha - whatever gave you that idea? ;)

Tankies - just guessing but I reckon there won't be a dedicated Kiltmaker down your way.

However, any military tailor should be able to do the job. So could anyone point TankiesYank to a decent Military Tailor in the Warminster area?

I'm sure Moss Bros will put you in contact with a Kilt Tailor - after all they hire them out (the kilts not the tailors obviously).

There's a branch down by the cinemas in Bournemouth.

I know its a bit further East, but the Bulford Garrison Tailor is an ex porridge-gobbler and is very good. Contactable via 3DSR.

Err - aren't the Black Watch still in Battlesbury Barracks? They will have their own regimental kilt tailor.

Or the Argylls are in Canterbury. Any Jock regiment (Inf and Guards) or 4 RTR plus RSDG will have regimental tailor on establishment and do not 19 and 40 Field not have them also? There is also a Master Stitch at Knightsbridge and Wellington.

All your bases are belong us! (Jocks)

GDav - bugger of coruse you are right - I meant the new unit also known as "the Jocks and Newkie broons"

I thought 1RTR was full of Scousers and Mancs? It was in my day anyway. The Makems, Monkey Hangers and Geordies were all in 15/19KRH.

Just noted - 1BW are currently in Norn Irn (if their website is to be believed). Not sure if that is a roulemont deployment or garrison so if you're looking for a kilt tailor in Warminster better check first. Mind you there should be one in the Land Warfare School as well because they have to kit out Haggis munchers too.

Take a trip to Edinburgh and go to Celtic Craft Centre. They do fine work. Stay away from Geoffrey Tailor.

They do do good work here as well http://www.aldkiltmakers.com/

PMSL :lol: Scottish recruitment problems? Really?

Anyway, thank you for the feedback...ideally I could make the trip to Edinburgh (and I'll be sure to stop by Geoffrey and let them know that RCSignals thinks they're hackjobs :D) but these should help me get the Tankie kilted.

Cheers!
