Men’s Highland dress at this time typically consisted of a leine (a large, flowing linen undershirt which came down to the knees); belted plaid (a tartan blanket fastened round the waist so as to fall in a series of pleats); a short woollen jacket and perhaps a sporran (a leather pouch worn about the waist). A Scots bonnet – a thick woollen affair in brown, blue, black or grey – completed the ensemble.
