Wear the traditional fly plaid to display your tartan in style. A fly plaid looks great with any kilt, whether you are dressed for a casual or a formal occasion. It is worn brooched at the shoulder and allowed to drape down the back. In general you want to choose a fly plaid made from the same fabric as your kilt. The standard finish is about an inch of fringe on each cut end of the fabric (enough to keep it from fraying) The other two sides are the finished fabric selvedges. Other finish options are available.
A piper's plaid is not just for pipers. It can also be worn by anyone for very formal occasions. Wear it with a Prince Charlie or other formal attire. Made from a full width of tartan, 3 1/2 yards long! One end of the plaid is pleated and stitched, and is usually worn across the body. It also looks excellent folded and brooched on the shoulder.
