How to Wear Kilt Hose

Kilt Hose are generally thicker than normal socks, so it is wise to allow an extra half size when choosing brogues or shoes to wear with them.

Traditionally kilt hose would have been blue or green to tone with the kilt, or even chequered in a pattern to match the wearer’s tartan. Recently white or cream coloured hose have become more common, largely due to their popularity with the kilt hire trade, but these are often frowned on by traditionalists.

Your hose should be pulled to about 2-3 finger widths beneath the knee cap.
