Caledonian Outfitters was established in 2024 by Bill Catherall to make a one-stop, curated shopping experience for his kilt clients.
Located in Beaverton, Oregon, Bill started kiltmaking in February 2023, training at The Kiltmakery in Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland. His kilts are made under the label Bespoke Kilts by Bill Catherall. As he purchased kilt accessories for himself he discovered the luxurious fit and feel of House of Cheviot kilt hose and wanted to make these exquisite socks available to his clients by buying from New House Highland and reselling to his clients. However, by the end of 2023 New House Highland was experiencing some changes and made the difficult decision to discontinue their wholesale distribution. So Bill bought up their remaining inventory and the scottishkilthose.com domain and re-opened it under the new Caledonian Outfitters brand.
Our mission is to provide our customers with the highest quality traditional Scottish kilts and accessories. We are committed to using the finest materials and craftsmanship, and work with suppliers that do the same, to provide products that our customers will cherish for years to come. We believe in the co-operative values of democracy, self-help, self-responsibility, equality, equity, and solidarity.
