Be very careful when tightening your kilt straps. Make no illusion as to how big you are. Tightening the straps as a means to decrease your width will drastically shorten the life of your kilt, and possibly make you look rather silly if any stitching were to burst suddenly while out and about.

...look rather silly if any stitching were to burst suddenly while out and about.

Back in the '80s when latex clothing was drastically less common than it is today, my girlfriend borrowed a skirt from a friend of hers. She decided to snap it up the side instead of in front. You know how you tend to spread as you sit? The snaps all gave at once and the thing shot a good six feet to the left.

Wise words. If you need the top of your kilt tighter than you want to pull the straps instead tighten up your belt overtop, as the leather of the belt will take the load off the kilt straps and seams underneath.
