Piper's Kilt Outfit
The Bagpipers of the historic Highland regiments were used to dress up in regional and traditional full Bagpiper's kilt outfit. These regiments were first imitated by the Govan Police and after gaining much popularity in the early 20th century, various other police, colliery and civilian pipe bands followed the suite. The Full Highland Dress was worn by virtually all Scottish pipers and pipe bands until the 1980s when the Strathclyde Police Pipe Band adopted “Day Dress” as their competition-wear due to the dress being so heavy, impractical, and not to mention very expensive to purchase and maintain. However, as practical as Day Dress is, it provides nowhere near the visual spectacle as a piper dressed properly in Full Highland Dress. This is why bagpipers wearing dress are highly sought after to play at prestigious events. The Piper’s Plaid is modelled on the “féileadh-mór” or “Great Kilt” which was worn by highlanders until the early 18th century. The plaid is always the same tartan as that of the kilt being worn. The quality of uniform accessories worn is almost as important as that of the kilt, plaid and feather bonnet.There are many metal parts – belt buckles, the sporran cantle, the dirk, feather bonnet badge and the plaid brooch.They all contribute to the spectacle of the bagpiper outfit.
