On my recent trip to San Francisco we had a fun day including A Scottish Morning at Pixar Involving Archery, Bagpipes & Kilts in which I told you all that I would soon be giving you the important information on Kilt wearing. I really think that the outfit is awesome (to bad women don’t wear them)!
Here is a photo diagram to help you with where the pieces go, if you can not see it click the image and it will open in a new window and be full sized.
WOW! That is a lot of pieces and it totally looks more complicated then they made it seem to but that just might be because they do it often. We will start from the top and work our way down the outfit 🙂
Hat- There are 2 different types of headwear for kits, one is called the Balmoral (this one is round, and brimless and flat on top) the other is called Glengarry(this is kinda a wedge shape but it is long and skinny width wise but kinda tall height wise). They come in different colors but most of the time it is black
Shirt- Plain white collard shirt
Fly Plaid- Same color as the tartan and is made of pleated material and worn over the shoulder.
Kilt- Comes in many different patterns called Tartans and each clan has their own tartan pattern that they wear to represent their clan. The smooth side of it goes in front and the pleated part in the back, it is held on with straps and buckles at the waist.
Belt- 2-3 inches wide and in black or brown leather.
Sporran- Since there are no pockets in a kilt you need something to hold all your stuff and you put it in your Sporran. It looks like a fannypack but goes in the front and it is either black or brown leather.
Hose- Kind of like socks but they are really really thick and they are knee high but they can not cover the knee. They are worn in cream color or any color that will match the tartan they are wearing.
Flash- An elastic band that goes inside the hose to hold them in place you can see it a little so it must be the same color or one that matches the tartan
Ghillie Brogues: These are the special shoes that they wear, they have holes in them so that they do not fill up with water and they get tied up the leg which was to prevent them from falling off or getting pulled off if they walked through mud.
So Who is heading out to get their own Kilt?
