Welcome to Howie R Nicholsby's 21ST CENTURY KILTS. Created in 1996 & launched in 1999 at London Men's Fashion Week.
Howie Nicholsby's 21st Century Kilts offer a unique take, and are a fitting homage, to a traditional Scottish style. The use of original textiles, ranging from leather, gold and purple denim, camouflage, to pinstripe offer something different to those fond of this age old item. 21st CENTURY KILTS were borne in 1996 and launched in 1999 at London Mens Fashion Week.
My aim is to give men throughout the world a realistic alternative to trousers. Pioneering the next step of its evolution, 21st Century Kilts is true to the original kilt which was everyday clothing. Casual or formal a kilt should be an option for any man from anywhere who can realise they are part of the history of an international garment.
We went to a few stores in Edinburgh but were disappointed by their lack of brown jackets and outfits that were 'a little different'. Howie from 21st Century Kilts was excellent and helped Kris put together the perfect kilt outfit even down to the lining inside. He makes the kilts in the shop in Thistle Street, Edinburgh and although we had left the kilt ordering a little late it was made in enough time and was perfect. The tartan Kris chose had stopped being made by the manufacturer but Howie managed to source the very last length of it to make Kris's kilt.
