All this talk about rosettes and what-nots. What of the kilt pin? I’ve often wondered where the kilt pin should be, um, pinned on the kilt.
An excellent question, PH. It is important that the kilt pin be mounted in a place that is symmetrical to the symmetry of the tartan. Ensure that it is equidistant to the stripes, and preferably centred on a cross.
You can always tell a band that takes pride in its uniform by their attention to kilt pin detail. Boghall & Bathgate Caledonia is one of the world’s best-turned-out outfits, and you can see each of their kilt pins located exactly in the same place, symmetrical to the very tasteful and distinctive Ancient Fraser tartan. Pure class.
And what do you pin on your kilt? From giant nappy pin to solid silver bespoke, The Style Guy will keep you looking sharp, so just send your questions of bravura to him and he’ll be pleased to help.
