    Unique Kilt Pin

    Just bought a lovely and unique kilt pin from Ashling Aine on Etsy, and thought I'd share. It's excellent quality, solid and substantial, and it looks really great on the kilt.

    Nice pin, I like the contemporary take on a traditional theme.

    Lovely pin! I checked out their page. I really liked the tree of life pin, but alas it is huge!! It ends up covering half the thigh! I am looking for a unique kilt pin for my next kilt, and I gotta say, I really like this trinity one for the symbolism and the Irish connection.

    I like having a pin that is not the traditional claymore & clan badge. This one appealed to me also because the MacPhail clan badge features a stag.

    On size, note that the image they have of the pin on a kilt is waaaaay out of proportion. A very bad image manipulation. They list the size of the pins, and while they are a bit wider than normal, the length is standard.

    The knot/antlers pin I have is heavy, and top-heavy, and the pin mechanism sits pretty tall from the back. When I first attached it was a bit 'floppy' for lack of a better term. To make it sit flat and still, I gently bent the antlers back so that the tips were even with the height of the pin mechanism. This steadies it against the kilt.
