Which Tartan Should Your Men’s Kilt Be Made From?
The name for the specific tartan pattern used on a kilt is a sett. This relates to the weaving pattern, number of threads, weight and colours used. Though most setts are not trademarked, thus do not legally restrict who can wear them, most are registered to a clan, meaning that there are social conventions regarding who can wear them. If you do not have a known clan tartan, try tracing your roots back by using a search website such as House Of Tartan. Simply type in your surname and be told which clan you are, and thus which tartan sett you should wear on your men’s kilt. If you have no direct ties to any clans, there are a number of tartans which are universal, such as Black Watch, Caledonian, Hunting Stewart and Jacobite tartans, but search for your mother’s and grandmother’s maiden names to see if you have some connection.
