What accessories do you recommend?

There are some accessories that we recommend as a way to finish off your kilt?.some would say the minimum requirement when wearing a kilt. People normally wear a kilt as part of an outfit and some accessories complete the outfit the same way a necktie finishes a man?s suit. These accessories include a sporran, kilt belt, buckle, kilt hose (socks),and hose flashes.

Optional accessories include a kilt shirts, kilt pins and other jewelry, Glengarry or Balmorals (head wear), Ghillie brogues (shoes), and a Sgian Dubh (knife). Of course the Prince Charlie jacket ( with waistcoat or vest ), the Argyll jacket, or the Tweed jacket are all appropriate items to consider when looking for that perfect image.

Please refer the Accessories section of the website.

How do I wear the special ?Ghillie Brogue? shoes?

Ghillie brogues are like any other type of footwear, in that they are available in many different qualities and values. We don?t offer the cheaper versions because they are not going to provide the longevity nor comfort that the better qualities will provide. That being said, the ghillies that we offer are made using the finest leather upper, lining, and soles. The heels come complete with a steel ?heel saver? that ensures many years of comfortable outings. The Ghillie design is unique in that it is made with no tongue, and it has long laces that start by twisting the laces four times, then pull tight to produce a vertical thong about one inch long. Wrap the laces around behind your ankle a couple of wraps, and tie at the outside with the remaining lace and toggle left to dangle.

How do I wear the kilt hose?

Kilt Hose are generally thicker than normal socks, so it is wise to allow an extra half size when choosing brogues or shoes to wear with them. They should be pulled to about 2-3 finger widths beneath the knee cap.

How do I wear flashes with kilt hose?

Flashes are brightly colored strips of wool, cotton or matching tartan that hang down from the folds in the kilt hose. They are in effect a decorative garter that assists in holding the hose up. Bring the hose cuff down to cover half the flash with only the bottom half showing.

How do I wear a kilt pin?

Ever since Queen Victoria reputedly used her hat pin to secure a gentleman soldiers kilt on a blustery day, a kilt pin has been worn with a traditional kilt. Its style is entirely a matter of your personal choice. It should be on the right hand side of the kilt, pinned through the front apron only (to prevent tearing) about 4 inches from the bottom of the kilt and 2 inches in from the fringe.
