You'll be lucky to find a place that will do it with 2 days notice.

I went in last month as I have a wedding to go to this weekend and I'm picking it up tomorrow.

As long as it's not a busy weekend you might be ok, though you won't get a lot of choice with 2 days to go.

Aye, I'm certainly well aware of the time issue. If I can't get one then suit it is, but I at least want to make the effort to try... hopefully it won't be too busy!

Try womens clothing shops they sometimes have the cheapest versions

They may be called skirts and rightly so

From what I gather Slaters may be able to sort you out at short notice, but it's best you give them a call first to check.

I think it's about 78 to hire if you're not a student (although I'm sure I was around 45 to hire the full shibang last year, albeit with 20% student discount).

I used to work for McCalls and the experience put me off ever wanting to see a man in a kilt again. You would not believe the stench that comes off of a kilt when you're steam ironing it. To be honest though, at last minute they're you're best best, they're pretty much the biggest kilt hire place in Aberdeen and are more likely to have something in your size...although the tarten may be gash.

I sue Philip King on George Street as well. Quick, easy and cheap. Plus, my dad forgot his waist coat while voer from Dubai with a Wedding the next day, and he was able to rent one with just the day's notice.
