Some people may wonder what a kilt is. It is not just a "skirt worn by men," which is what many people think. Considered an all-purpose garment, a kilt can be worn for formally as when getting married or for something rugged like going for a hike up a mountain. A kilt gives a man complete freedom of motion, a crisp clean appearance and confidence in his Irish or Scottish heritage. If you have never thought you could wear a kilt, think again. All men can wear a kilt; it is thought of as both universally flattering and practical. If you have decided to jump into wearing a kilt, you should probably go ahead and get a kilt package. The complete kilt package includes 13 essentials the man will need to achieve maximum kilt success and styling.
What All Comes in a Kilt Package?
You can get a basic package that will come with a 4-yard kilt, or you can get a casual, semi-formal, formal, or deluxe formal package that comes with an 8-yard "Regulation Kilt." Each and every kilt is made with the highest quality Worsted wool and all packages will include a belt of the highest quality leather, with a polished Celtic chrome buckle so your kilt will remain firmly in place. A kilt isn't a kilt without a sporran because your hands would stay full holding your cellphone, wallet and keys since kilts do not come with pockets. If you are wondering what a sporran is, it is a small pouch that is worn in front of the kilt. Though the levels of formality may vary, every kilt package will come with a sporran, and strap.
A kilt pin and a pair of kilt hose also come with all kilt packages. The hose will keep your legs covered and the pin completes the outfit for a traditional and neat appearance. Packages upwards of the basic will come with more accoutrements including a Jacobite shirt, which is the perfect shirt to go with a kilt and can be worn for casual occasions, Tartan flashes and garters to hold up the kilt hose. If you go for a Semi-Formal or Formal packages, they will include a Prince Charlie Jacket and Vest or an Argyll Jacket, a Ghillie Brogues, which are the proper shoes for formal events, and a Sgian Dubh, which is a decorative traditional blade.
For those who wish to have the complete Irish or Scottish ensemble, all Formal packages come with a brooch and fly plaid. Fly plaids are made with tartan that will match your kilt and makes the final touch for the more formal events. Brooch pins are worn on the left shoulder of the jacket.
