The Scottish nationalclothing is a very harmonious, unusual and beautiful costume, which takes into account all the details. The Scottish national costume is mandatory, except for kilt includes a tweed jacket, a wide belt with a big buckle, my sporran, hose with a flush, kiltpin takes and brugi. Depending on what kind of event is put on national costume, it can be added other details.For example, no self-respecting Scot wouldn't wear full dress evening dress elegant jacket, "Prince Charlie" over the shoulder plaid clan tartan, fine shirt with bow tie and fur of my sporran. Also the same attribute needs to be a knife.

A huge role in how it will look Scottish clothes, playing nothing like a tartan (Scottish cloth inscribed with a pattern of intersecting vertical and horizontal bands). Each Scottish clan adorns their national dress tartan of certain colors. The most important and indispensable part of the national costume is my sporran. Many have compared the wearing of a kilt without my sporran with walking trousers with unbuttoned fly. In the past on my sporran judged on the social status of its owner. It is often decorated with metal, fur, embossed patterns, tassels, etc. The my sporran supposed to be strictly in the front so that it covered the most vulnerable man's place. This part of the costume as a belt with a modern twist - it is an ordinary decoration. On the plaques of the belt, in most cases, shows a Thistle, a Celtic script or clan symbols.

To winter the Scots could wear the kilt, while not freezing, their national dress includes hose is a special wool socks, crocheted very tight fine binding. Scottish national costume also includes shoes-brogues leather with very long laces. To date modern dress shoes inherited from the ancient shoes only perforation, title, and material (thick perforated leather).In Scotland the laces to tie made in the following ways: at the level of the ankles with the knot, knotted in the front, lace-up mid-calf with a knot formed at the front or outside of the lower leg.

 National dress in Scotland also includes an element such as a pin, is made in the form of weapons - kiltpin. It must be secured to the bottom of the upper apron in order to weight the edge (kiltpin does not allow the apron to open up with a sharp gusts of wind). Kiltpin made from light metals (often silver). Sometimes it can be adorned with semi-precious or precious stones.
