Traditional Kilt Costume

Male Scottish dress includes a kilt, jacket, sporran and gillie brogues. Men and boys in the Scottish Highlands first wore it in the16th century. Frequently worn on formal occasions, parties, highland games and sports events. The kilt is a knee-length ‘skirt’ with pleats, in a tartan material. It is typically made from one piece of fabric that is wrapped around and fastened at the side. The sporran is made of leather or fur, and serves as a wallet and container for any other necessary personal items, as the traditional Scottish kilt does not have pockets. Gillie brogues are traditional thick-soled shoes, with no tongues and long laces. The laces are secured by wrapping them around the ankles then tied. The shoes deliberately lack tongues, so the wearer’s feet can dry more quickly in typically damp Scottish weather. We stock a variety of jackets and kilts in different tartans.
