Default Re: Kilt Sizing

I've several kilts and this method is spot on.

However, I was recently speaking with kilt maker and he never heard of this method.

Should I be concerned? (we are discussing a kilt sold that doesn't pass this measurement test yet the maker swears I measured incorrectly).

Maybe you could take a picture of the kilt in question, with yardstick in place, and have the maker explain why he says it's measured wrong? Picture worth a thousand etc... At least it would get you both on the same sheet of music... I'm sure full of metaphors this morning...
