    As was mentioned, they often do but don't have to. I happened to have a couple of lengths of Maple Leaf (bought for a kilt but ended up being put off by trying to work with asymmetric tartan) and Nova Scotia (was purchased as a table cloth long ago) that I've made into day plaids.

    point of clarification

    Here is a picture of the kilt outfit worn by King Edward in the 1930s I would think.
    As the display is set up it would appear to be a day plaid and brooch draped over the left shoulder.
    On close inspection however I believe it is actually a belted plaid (or drummer's plaid) with the belt tucked up inside and just draped over the display.
    Rather misleading if one is not aware of what they are looking at. Especially with a montrose and jabot.
