The Scots Guards (SG), part of the Guards Division, is one of the Foot Guards regiments of the British Army. Their origins lie in the personal bodyguard of King Charles I of England and Scotland. Its lineage can be traced back to 1642, although it was only placed on the English Establishment (thus becoming part of what is now the British Army) in 1686. The Regiment is the oldest formed Regiment in the Regular Army in service today.
We hand craft wonderful period pattern kilt garter ties and kilt flashes for private Highland wear clients, film and television productions. Based on historical patterns we have developed classic Victorian style garter ties worn on modern elastic garters. In addition we offer full self tie kilt hose garters for those clients looking for that period vintage style. We currently offer a wide range classic patterns including Argyle garters, Atholl Highlanders, Gordon Highlanders and Seaforth Highlanders patterns.
Also available in dark green as worn by pipers of The Highlanders ( 4 Scots ), dark blue and light blue.
