Kilt Pin

Whether  you are wearing a casual of formal kilt you will need a kilt pin  to complete your outfit. Apparently Queen Victoria , on a regimental inspection, offered her brooch to a solider struggling to keep his kilt  from  blowing up in the wind.  And, so the story goes, from then on the kilt  pin became part of regimental highland dress.

Most kilt pins look like miniature swords and daggers. There are a huge number of different styles featuring  Celtic  designs and clan crests they are made or pewter and silver and are between 2- 5 inches long.

The kilt pin should be worn  on  the right hand side of the kilt, around 4 inches from the bottom. To  prevent  tearing  it should only be pinned to the top apron of the kilt.
