Traditional flashes can be made in almost any tartan or as well in solid colours, plain or embroidered with an insignia. Our flashes come with an adjustable elastic garter with a velcro "buckle" that keeps them not only comfortable but secure. While many are kept on hand, these are mostly available as an individual bespoke item and we welcome you to contact us with your request before ordering. We can provide several styles as well, dagged, looped , un-looped, fringed....just ask ! We do offer a traditional set of flashes that are available in the U.S.Special Forces tartan, but, please note,as these are made with the restricted tartan itself,just as with the Special Forces kilt, you must submit your DD214's to order these. HOWEVER: If you are a past customer that has purchased a kilt or anything in the Special Forces tartan already, we have your name on file and wecan just process the order for you immediately. Just feel free to check it out through the cart. This is done to protect the integrity of the tartan and keep it limited to those specifically entitled to own it. If you are interested in buying this as a gift for that special soldier of yours, we suggest using a gift certificate so they may order it. We thank you for understanding. *****
