    I'm an unabashed fan of "loud" tweeds, and I generally think that they pair better with tartan kilts than most people imagine. Looking back at vintage photos, bold tweed patterns are all over the place. They offer a lot of visual interest, individuality, and style.

    I have a jacket similar to the one that piper is wearing; I think it complements the tartan in my kilt quite well. The pattern size is not quite as large as the one in the OP, nor do the colours have as much contrast within the pattern. But I think when the jacket is seen by itself, it appears much more bold than it does when put together as part of an overall outfit. There probably is a point where it's "too much", but one would have to work pretty hard to find it.
