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.

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. *****

Traditional Scots Bonnet Traditional Scots Bonnet

Hand knit and felted with 100% wool right here in Maine by our own staff knitters, our Men's traditional Scot bonnet is made from an authentic pattern used for hundreds of years. Blackthistle Design has its own
special collection of knits based on both historical and new patterns and are pleased to say this seems to still be a number one request. Bonnets are shaped by hand and dried, while we do offer some to stock, for best fit wait a week or two and let us do one bespoke to your specific colour and head size. It will be stiff at first, but the more you wear it, the more it will become your favourite headgear.
Watch as we add more and more colour selections and as always, if you do not see it, just give us a call or message us
