How to Tie and Wear a Piper's Plaid

This is the simple method used by John Mac, with the following comments from him ...

That is pretty much how I do it, except the brooch pin is always down so it doesn’t fall off if it happens to come undone. Also, we have various length overhangs to deal with which is usual for a band where plaids are not customised and are usually a one size for all. In dealing with the short end which goes to the back, I like to avoid having people look like the hunch back of Notre Dame.
