I wear three styles of piping attire:
- “Piper’s No.1 Full Highland Dress”: This includes the long piper’s plaid, horse hair sporran, piper’s dirk, crossbelt and spats. This is usually worn with the large Pipers’s Feather Bonnet made from ostrich feather.
- “Day Dress”: Kilt, Argyll jacket, 5-button waistcoat, Ghillie Brogues and a Glengarry hat
- “Prince Charlie”: Much like Day Dress, but with the lower cut Prince Charlie jacket and waistcoat, and a dress shirt with bow tie.
Normally I wear the Full Highland Dress with the exception of funerals, where I wear Day Dress. I charge no extra to wear Full Highland Dress. Others pipers often charge extra.
