The Macleod of Lewis Tartan
The Macleod of Lewis Tartan The Macleod of Lewis Tartan has its roots in the MacKenzie Tartan used in 1777 by John MacKenzie, also known as Lord MacLeod when he raised a regiment called "Lord MacLeod's Highlanders." The sett has its source in the MacKenzie Tartan, and the family claimed to be heirs of the last chief of Lewis, Rodderick, who died in 1595. This tartan design appears in many early collections, including Logan's "The Scottish Gael" (1831) and Smibert's (1850). The tartan was approved by Chief Norman Magnus, the 26th chief, in 1910 and adopted by the Clan Society.
When ordering a kilt, please note that the sizing is different from pants or jeans. Kilts are worn over the belly, so it's important to measure your waistline all around at the point of your belly button area. If your measurement falls between two available sizes, we recommend selecting the larger size for a comfortable fit. Please keep in mind that you cannot order based on your pants or jeans size when it comes to kilts.
