  • 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.

    I cannot say enough about how great this fly plaid looks. USA Kilts always delivers the finest quality. Beyond that, however, it needs to be said that USA Kilts is incredibly well versed in tartan selection. I worked closely with Rocky to be sure that my fly plaid tartan came from the same mill as my kilt tartan. He was there to advise on each step of the purchasing process and engaged me as a customer with the greatest professionalism, knowledge and follow up. The price is by far the most fair in the market. I wore it for the first time, as a bagpiper, for an outdoor wedding on the coast of Maine and I lost count of the compliments it received from guests and even bystanders as I was walking to the ceremony! Thank you as always to USA Kilts for providing top notch service and only the finest quality! (Posted on 6/4/2017)

    I ordered this for my dad to wear on my wedding day. It came very quickly for it being a custom order, maybe 3 weeks. When I called the company to answer some remaining questions they were very helpful and professional. This product is of ultimate quality and customization. Thank You so much!! (Posted on 6/3/2017)

    The two best kilts I have were built by USA Kilts. The fly plaid was a match for one of them. They had my specs already in the system, never thought of anyone else. I prefer the purl and knot twist fringe. So, I just ordered a little long, extended the brush fringe to 3 1/2" by removing thread, and a $15 fringe twister tool and a few hours later, I had exactly what I wanted for under $100. The right materials. Great prices. Quick turnaround. Thanks guys. (Posted on 1/5/2017)

    These guys are the epitome of customer service! I needed a fly plaid to match my kilt. These guys matched my kilt pattern exactly! It looks like the fly plaid was made from the same bolt of fabric as my kilt. This is not the first purchase I've made from these guys, and it will certainly not be my last! Great products. Great customer service. Great value. (Posted on 8/12/2016)
