  • Product Description

    This pewter kilt pin features a set of old-fashioned gears as the "clan crest". The motto is the famous phrase "Illegitimus Non Carborundum" -- Latin for "Don't let the bastards grind you down!" Cast in Scotland, this is a great pin for any steampunk or anyone who wants to show a wee bit of attitude, mischief and optimism.  The back of this pin has a pin lock with a secure clasp closure. It would make a great gift for any kilt wearer.

    Better than expected   Aaron H
    It's not often something looks better in person than it's picture (Posted on 6/22/2020)
    Don't let the bastards grind you down  Happy Kilts
    Perfect for a LGBTQ+ pride kilt I own. This pin has such a great look and weight to it. Very pleased! (Posted on 5/6/2020)
    Good looking and nice weight.  Lance
    I bought this wear on my American Heritage 5-yd wool kilt. "Don't let the bastards grind you down" just seemed appropriate for the American theme. Maybe I'll get an American National kilt to wear with the pin, too. (Posted on 3/3/2020)
    Great Pin  Jack
    Something different and a good solid pin. Nice and heavy, but not much bigger than the standard clan/sword pin. Makes for a nice conversation starter after a pint or two :) (Posted on 10/28/2019)
    Very Solid Product  Turtle
    I am new to the kilt world, so a lot of research went into what one needs for wearing & caring of a kilt. USA Kilts has helped me to understand more with all the information they have on their products. Quality is excellent, and the prices are fair. (Posted on 7/5/2019)

  • Buyers Guide

    The Kilt pin is worn on the lower right corner of the kilt’s apron (above the wearer’s right knee). Typically, the pin is positioned about 5” up from the bottom of the kilt (the bottom of the pin is 5” up) and about 2” in from the right edge of the front apron. Please note that it does NOT pin multiple layers of cloth together… it only goes through the front apron.

    - 100%  Pewter
    - Made in Scotland
    - Measures 3.4" long by 1.4" wide

  • Fun Facts

    If you don’t want to lose your kilt pin, try this… carefully poke the pin through the front apron of your kilt. With the pin sticking out the underside, stab the pin through a rubber band (usually a wide rubber band is easier). You can trim the rubber band so that you only use a little square. Then, poke the pin through the front apron again and close the clasp. If the clasp comes undone, the kilt pin will be held by the rubber band and won’t fall off.

  • Availability

    We try to keep this kilt pin in stock at all times.  In the rare instance that it is out of stock when you place your order, we will let you know within 24 hours.
