The Story of the Kilt Pin: The first Scottish kilts were worn without a pin, as well as without any undergarment. If the kilt was worn on a breezy day... well, there were many revealing moments! One very windy day, Queen Victoria was reviewing the Gordon Highlanders at Balmoral Castle. A young soldier, standing at attention, could not control the flapping of his kilt. The Queen, noticing his distress, walked over to him, removed a pin from her own dress, and pinned down the overlap of his kilt. Ever since, kilt pins have provided both a practical and decorative addition to the traditional Scottish kilt!
