a bit of an odd question...
Does anyone here that wears a UK also wear a kilt pin on it? I've seen a few pictures of it and wondered how many people actually do and for what reasons. I do it to keep my front apron from flying up when running but I'm not sure as to other reasons for doing it.
And shepherds we shall be, for thee My Lord, for thee.
Power hath descended forth from thy hand,
that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command.
We shall flow a river forth to thee,
and teeming with souls shall it ever be.
In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti.

I used to. I like kilt pins and consider them one of key ingredients of a well turned out kilt ensemble. I think of them almost like jewelry. Some how the rough and tumble, wash and wear nature of the Utilikilt no longer seems consistent with kilt pins. I now save my kilt pins for tartan kilts.

I don't wear one on my Utilikilt because the apron is so narrow it doesn't look good. Just my opinion.

That was my feeling as well; the pin would almost be dead center unless you had it at the extreme edge.

I've seen it done in photos only. I don't because I don't want to poke holes in the cotton/poly fabric.

Have 15 UKs and never used a kilt pin on any of them...just looks too weird to me too.
I have put a LOT of patches on the cargo pockets from time to time...but always eventually take them off.

I do, sometimes. Reason: Someone here said you should never, and, like wearing the kilt, wearing a pin is just another way to express my individuality. I solve the position problem with proportion; I use a smaller pin.

I've worn a pin on both my UK's. I don't do it all the time, just when I want to be different.

I have never worn a kilt pin on the apron, but I have worn my X-Marks pin attached to the pocket of my survival a few times.
