Detail

Fly plaid was launched by the military as dress wear when the great kilt was superseded in favor of the contemporary kilt by the end of the 18th Century.
The current fly plaid invented 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 meters (9 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 stormy climate.
The fly plaid harkens back to that garment and was initiated in the 18th century when fashion stated a switch to the modern kilt. The fly plaid changed that section of the Great Kilt that was draped over the shoulder. Today, it is usually worn in two sizes but always 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 precisely.
It is classically worn with a jacket that has epaulets, but this is not obligatory, and brooch.
Few fly plaids are sewn so that one corner is gathered prior to attaching the brooch. Others are not sewn and are pleated by hand before draping over the shoulder or inserting through an epaulet.
