This site is the best, the shipping was very fast and the candy that came with it was unexpected. Thank you USAKilts. (Posted on 6/3/2015)

- NICE BUCKLE DadofKilter
Price Value QualityNot sure what the previous reviewer was taking about... buckle received for Son's holiday gift was of very nice quality and appearance. No "plastic feel"... it has very nice crest and sturdy metallic feel and look to it. Happy with the purchase! Website worked well for ordering, and shipping was quick...even with the holiday rush.

The 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.
Why is the thistle the "Flower of Scotland"?
According to a legend, an invading Norse army was attempting to sneak up at night upon a Scottish army's encampment. During this operation one barefoot Norseman had the misfortune to step upon a thistle, causing him to cry out in pain, thus alerting Scots to the presence of the Norse invaders. Some sources suggest the specific occasion was the Battle of Largs, which marked the beginning of the departure of King Haakon IV (Haakon the Elder) of Norway who, having control of the Northern Isles and Hebrides, had harried the coast of the Kingdom of Scotland for some years.
