Traditional Scottish Socks.
Complete Your Highland Look with Authentic Kilt Socks.
Kilt hose, or kilt socks, play a vital role in completing the traditional Scottish Highland attire. Crafted from high-quality wool or acrylic blends, these knee-length socks provide both practicality and style.
It's important to pay attention to proper folding and positioning. The socks should be pulled up to just below the knee and then folded down to create a neat and even appearance. This folding technique not only enhances the overall aesthetic but also helps to keep the socks in place throughout the day. This fold is also used to hide the fastenings for the flashes.
They are available in various colours, allowing you to coordinate them with your kilt, tartan, or the overall colour scheme of your outfit. Traditional colours like black, cream, or off-white are popular choices, as they effortlessly complement a wide range of tartans and Highland attire. However, you can also opt for more vibrant hues to add a personal touch or match the colours of your clan tartan.
Aside from their aesthetic appeal, kilt socks also serve a practical purpose. The knit construction provides insulation and breathability, ensuring your legs stay warm in cooler weather while allowing air circulation to prevent overheating. The reinforced heel and toe areas offer durability, making them suitable for various activities and prolonged wear.
To enhance the authenticity of your Highland look, pair them with garters or flashes. Garters are typically worn just below the knee to hold the socks in place, while flashes are decorative fabric strips that adorn the top of the hose and add a pop of colour and flair. We offer a convenient set that comes with a pair of elasticated garters and a pair of flashes equipped with a hook and clasp to easily attach them.
