The term 'box-pleated' is really a misnomer here, as this is actually a knife-pleated kilt with the facing folded back.
This intricate and rarely seen style is worn by a number of British and Commonwealth military regiments and is not offered by many civilian kilt makers.
Like the Knife-Pleated Deluxe, this kilt style uses seven or more yards of fabric and has a large number of pleats (19-25). Military box-pleated kilts are usually pleated to the stripe, though they can certainly be pleated to the sett as well.

IMPORTANT: It is preferable to have someone else take these measurements rather than yourself.
1. Natural waist. This is NOT your trouser size! For most people, this is the indent at your side just above the navel. This measurement should be fairly snug.
2. Hips. Measure the widest part of your hips. This can be loosely done over clothing.
3. Length of the kilt. Measure from your natural waist to the top of your knee-cap. Keep your back straight and don't look down. Add 2 inches to this result.
