The 'Brat' is an Irish mantle. Originally this garment was worn like a cape; the top corners were affixed to the shoulders using brooches.
Traditionally, the Brat would have been made using solid-coloured twill cloth, especially green or saffron. There is no reason, however, that it cannot be made using the modern Irish tartans.
The Brat, like the Fly Plaid, is usually reserved for more formal events.
