The Scottish kilt is without a doubt the most iconic way of expressing your Scottish heritage. The kilt pin is functional yet decorative and is used to add a little weight to the kilt, preventing it from flapping open.
The kilt pin is placed at the bottom corner of the kilt. The general rule is that it should be placed two pattern squares over and up from the corner of the kilt fabric. Men should wear the kilt pin on the right and women on the left. It should be noted however, that the kilt pin is never pinned through both aprons, as this will distort how your kilt hangs and will increase the likelihood of you tearing your kilt.
