The Glengarry

The Glengarry style of bonnet was said to have been created by Alasdair Ranaldson MacDonell of Glengarry. 

It was later approved for use by the military during the 19th Century.

The Glengarry was traditionally worn on a slant with one inch above the left brow and half-an-inch above the right. Today it if often worn in a straight manner.

The silk ribbons are to be left untied. Mere decoration today, these were originally used to adjust size. Many people will tell you that each method means something different, be it political affiliation or religion. My suggestion is to do whatever you think looks nice. Typically, a Balmoral's ribbons are tied and the Glengarry's are left loose. The same situation applies to the dicing on the band. Traditionally it was supposed to denote Protestantism, though today it is chosen based on personal preference.

Made in Scotland from 100% wool in a wide variety of colours. Sizes 6-8. All prices in Canadian funds.

NOTE: All Glengarrys are made-to-order (i.e. non-returnable), so please MEASURE CAREFULLY before ordering.
