  • Product Description

    The fly plaid is the "cape looking piece of cloth" that goes over the left shoulder of the wearer.  It is a simple square of cloth, typically 46" X 46", with fringed edges and a box pleat sewn in one corner.  


    The modern fly plaid originated with the traditional Féileadh Mòr (Great Plaid) worn in the Scottish Highlands. The Great Plaid was a large piece of cloth, which by the 16th century measured up to 8.2 metres (9.0 yards) in length, half of which was pleated and belted about the waist, while the upper half was draped over the left shoulder, was then gathered in front and could be used as a cloak and hood during inclement weather.


    The fly plaid harkens back to that garment and was introduced in the 18th century when fashion dictated a switch to the modern kilt. The fly plaid replaced that portion of the Great Kilt that was draped over the shoulder. It is always worn in the same tartan or colour as the modern kilt, and should be made from the same fabric so that the sett and colours match exactly. It is typically worn only for formal functions and is paired with a jacket and vest and a plaid brooch.

    The product was nice. I wish the person that took my order spend more time to make sure I was ordering the correct tartan. It didn’t match my kilt at all and is no refundable.. so now I have something I will never use (Posted on 10/27/2020)

    I so much appreciated the extra cloth and sewing USA Kilts did for my fly plaid. It makes it so much easier to use a brooch and keep everything looking nice. I will absolutely be purchasing more fly plaids from USA Kilts. (Posted on 10/23/2020)

    Very impressed with the PV fly plaid. The precision of the fringing, and stitching and pressing of the box pleat is perfect. The PV tartan is actually a very high quality cloth and is surprisingly dense and heavy! (Posted on 8/17/2020)
