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.
