Off Kilter Kilts celebrates one year of bringing Liberty from Pants™ to Southern California!


Southern California’s only multi-brand modern kilt store is celebrating its first anniversary on August 27, 2016.

Kilters from across the region will be converging on the store to mark the occasion with owner J.T. Centonze and the rest of the OKK crew. With more than 800 kilts sold in the first year, Off Kilter Kilts has a lot to celebrate.

Off Kilter Kilts has become a regular sight at local Renaissance Faires, Highland Games, and Celtic Festivals. They can also be seen around Pasadena hosting Kilts and Drinks nights at local restaurants.

The modern kilt movement continues to grow, as seen recently on CNNMoney ( Off Kilter Kilts currently carries six brands of kilts (including Utilikilts), offering a selection of price points and styles. Off Kilter Kilts is the only place a person can come to compare multiple brands and walk out that day with the perfect fit for them. Ladies, kilts are no longer just for gentlemen – OKK carries multiple styles designed for women and won’t hesitate to fit you in a men’s, if that’s what you want.

Alongside the kilt selection, Off Kilter Kilts also carries Celtic-inspired music from artists local and distant, as well as chic hand-made chainmail jewelry. Those looking for a formal look can also find sporrans, flashes, kilt hose, and other items traditionally associated with kilts in the store.

Off Kilter Kilts is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm, and Sunday from 10am to 4pm. Located at 2610 E. Colorado Blvd in Pasadena, Off Kilter Kilts is right on Route 66 and welcomes all kilters, from the long-experienced kilters to those who have never shown their calves before.

Off Kilter Kilts is available to help spread the culture—or rather, kilture—and demonstrate kilts for local morning or talk shows; leading into the holiday season, kilts are a unique and interesting gift option. Whether the segment is filmed or recorded on-set or on-location, Off Kilter Kilts is happy to work with any circumstances. Please email or call (626)817-9999.
