We have 2 different styles of plaids – pleated plaids and fly plaids – which are available in a wide range of tartans. A plaid is a length of tartan cloth (the same tartan as your kilt) and normally worn over the left shoulder. The plaid is attached with safety pins which are hidden and a plaid brooch is then pinned on for decoration. The plaid reflects the original style of the kilt which was one long piece of material that wrapped around the body and over the shoulder. Plaids add an extra sense of occasion to your outfit and should match the tartan of your kilt.
