Anyone can wear this non-clan design. Not only is it cool because it’s kinda steampunk, but its faux-Latin motto, “Illegitimus Non Carborundum” makes a fine commentary on life. Now here’s the part where you’ll want to stop reading, if the sight of a mild cuss word is gonna singe your eyeballs or somethin’. Ready for the translation? “Don’t Let the Bastards Grind You Down.” Amazing, right?! A motto you might also recognize from a Handmaid’s Tale.

What is a kilt pin?
Have you ever worn a kilt on a windy day? Yes, we all have, and it can be quite nerving worrying about becoming the next Marilyn Monroe. Therefore, we recommend that you wear a piece of jewelry called a kilt pin on the lower corner of the outer apron of your kilt. The kilt pin adds weight to the outer apron, this prevents the apron blowing open and showing off too much leg. You may also wear a kilt pin purely as a form of decoration, so pick a kilt pin that represents you!
Be sure to get the matching cap badge/brooch too!
