Price Value QualityThe buckles are NICE, but when they arrived, I found that I had to make some minor modifications to my belt. (Posted on 10/9/2019)
- Gorgeous! Rascal
Price Value QualityThis belt buckle is absolutely jewel gorgeous! The picture on the website does not do it justice. It's one solid cast piece including the parts that hook up to the belt and clasp. It's nicely packaged in a cloth bag for shipping and storage to keep it from getting scratched (prematurely). I'm going to enjoy wearing this for many years to come. (Posted on 6/8/2019)

Buyers GuideThe kilt belt is a “different animal” from a regular jeans belt. To attach a kilt belt, start with the end of the belt without the metal ‘D’. Slide the tapered end of the belt through the backside of the buckle with the corresponding metal bridge. Double the belt back on itself and attach the Velcro (or small strap and roller buckle) to itself. Now, the “hook end” of the buckle will be able to attach to the ‘D’ end of the belt. Adjust the kilt belt’s size by doubling the belt back on itself more or less until you get it to the proper size.

When a kilt belt is worn is a personal preference to a degree, but there are certain situations where it is “less appropriate”. One such situation is when wearing a dress sporran. When the dress sporran is worn, you do not typically wear a kilt belt. When you wear a waistcoat (i.e. vest) with a Semi Dress sporran, you can wear a kilt belt, or you can go without. Rocky personally wears a kilt belt for all occasions, except where a dress sporran is required.
The historical Irish harp is the national symbol of Ireland and, as such, appears in stylized forms in the Coat of arms of Ireland, the flag of the President of Ireland as well as Irish Euro coins and official documents. It also appears on the Royal Standard of the United Kingdom, representing Ireland. An image of a harp was registered as the Guinness trademark in 1862.

What symbols represent Ireland?
Symbols of Ireland and Irish heritage include the harp, the shamrock and the trinity knot. Celtic knotwork is also an important part of Irish iconography. Naturally, we have included all these meaningful elements in our unique and original kilt accessory designs.
Of all these, the most famous is probably the Shamrock. The humble clover has been associated with the Emerald isle since pagan times, during which it may have stood for the Three Fates. Modern pagans often associate it with the Triple Goddess (Maiden, Mother and Crone).
However the most famous story surrounding the Shamrock is that Saint Patrick, patron saint of Ireland, used the 3-leaf clover in his sermons. In teaching the Holy Trinity to the locals, he explained that the leaves represented the father, the son and the holy ghost - separate entities, yet joined as one.
What is the national symbol for Ireland?
The most storied national symbol of Ireland is the Irish harp, or Brian Boru harp. This design has appeared on Irish flags since the 18th century.
An older variant, the Winged Maiden Harp (which features a stylized woman with wings on the spine of the harp) was the main element of the Coat of Arms of the Kingdom of Ireland. The standard harp was used in other heraldic designs such as the Irish Provincial Coat of Arms. In both cases, the harp was on a blue field.
Irish nationalists adopted the 'Brian Boru' harp and placed it on a green field - this treatment is seen earliest on the Wolftone flag. The nickname "Brian Boru harp" comes from the 19th century when artists began to use a specimen of a medieval Irish harp as their inspiration. the harp, currently held at Trinity College, was popularly believed to have been owned by King Brian Boru or one of his court bards. This was never the case, but the harp is still a priceless artifact of Irish royalty and court life from before the complete rule of the English. The times when true bards immortalized the deeds of their lords in song and poem.
