Today's fringed fly plaid is a modern re-interpretation of the feilidh-mhor or Great Plaid. This Great Plaid was a 9 yard length of material that was worn wrapped around the waist and belted, with the remaining fabric draped over the shoulder and gathered to the front. This way it could be used as a cloak and hood to shelter the wearer from the inclement weather. Today's fly plaid compliments the modern kilt by replacing the heavy length of fabric that was worn over the shoulder with a lighter square of fabric that is worn draped from the shoulder. This is secured in place by the use of a Plaid Brooch.
The fly plaid is always made from the same material as the kilt to ensure a consistency of sett and colour between the kilt and the fly plaid. This fly plaid is available in our complete range of tartans, simply select the tartan you desire from the drop down list above. Material type: 100% worsted pure wool. Tartan shown is Royal Stewart.
As this is a hand made item it will take between 5-6 weeks to complete. This includes cutting the cloth, hand stitching, fringing and finishing.
How To Wear
First insert the sewn corner of the plaid through the epaulette of your jacket, or over your shoulder. This corner of fabric should be brought through until it comes to roughly the level of where a breast pocket would be. Finally secure the plaid by attaching a plaid brooch at the corner but do not attach to the jacket below. The weight of the brooch will keep the plaid in place.
