Kyle, I talked to the southeastern rep, for Utilikilts. I believe if you can get the material they will make it for you. You can check their website and see. If they do let me know I want one too. Good luck If you need anty help just let me know. Be safe, keep training.

while some of the midwest bands hooked up with the "PBI girls" at the FDIC to get material to make kilts I decided to do something totrally dissimilar ... since I am wearing my 3rd generation gear my old FDNY style long coat was going to be scrapped so I decided to begin with giving it a good washing, removed the liner, have been removing the reflexite striping and I found a Bagpipe cover maker who is willing to make a pipe bag out of my old turnout coat, and stripe it with the reflexite being a history buff and knowing the coats life experiances first hand it seemed like a cool thing to do when I get it back made up, I'll share the pics and bag makers info ..

Kyle short answer is No... any bands who wear kilts of Non tartan wear PBI material... I believe the idea popped up and the local distributer was approached who called the factory which along with I believe scotchlight ( I think)
got behind the project 100%... the material was shipped and a KILTmaker manufactured the PBIkilts along with scotchlight reflective markings....So you see how it came about... Youcould also try the same sort of path butI dont know ifits worth the trouble for a singlekilt or not, JIm

Does anyone know where I can get a Nomex Kilt? I've checked a ton of tartan and kilt webpages and have been unable to find one. Any help is greatly appreciated.
