The following notes and illustrations are based on questions we are repeatedly asked by our customers and have put together to ensure you are wearing your outfit correctly and therefore… Looking your best in Highland Dress.

Helpful Hints: The easiest order in which to dress is to start with the socks, shoes, flashes and sgian dubh. Once you are correct below the knee, put on your shirt and tie, followed by the kilt, sporran and chain.
