GO FOR IT! If you are wearing a formal outfit (P/C) I think it would look great. I have even been known to wear one with my argyle. Jock Scot and M of R, the paramedics are on their way!
Bottom line is you only have to please yourself and the one you're with.

I agree with Big Mikey. (Is that safe? )
The fly plaid gives you that extra splash, and since you're dressing up in your finest for the Bard, I'd say pile on the tartan. Tartan Claus, right?
When given a choice, most people will choose.

Really, a fly plaid is a bit over the top. Especially for a Burns Supper.
