The Kilt Project: Belt Buckle

We’ve recently added quite a bit to our kilt collection here.  The project has moved on since the last time I posted about it., and hopefully I will catch you all up on it soon. Today, though, I’m highlighting Paul’s belt buckle.

Belt Buckle

Belt buckles for kilts have all sorts of designs on them, from celtic knots to Scottish saltires, to the rampant lion or a clan crest. We picked a nice Scottish thistle design for Paul’s belt buckle.  I really like the thistles on it and think compared to a lot of the design’s I’ve seen, it’s quite unique. You can’t see it here, but the belt also has a Scottish thistle design, and Paul’s sgian dubh also has the shape of a thistle on the hilt.

    Hi Sarah,

    You and Paul have chosen a really good design for his kilt belt buckle.

    I would just like to make one point, if the photo shown is of Paul wearing the kilt belt and buckle, he is wearing it to low.

    The kilt belt should be worn at the very top of the kilt, and not lower down as shown in your photo.

    If you would like any advice on kilts and their accessories, please visit my site at

    Kind Regards,

    This really is a great buckle (and a great camera shot to catch the detail in the way it’s shown!). Looks like a decent size too.
