This is the traditional Scottish style Glengarry cap.
Originally, some wearers of the Balmoral wore it puffed up on the head and creased down the middle, which became a new style of hat called the Glengarry. By the end of the Victorian times the British Army had adopted this style hat for the standard military uniform.
Constructed of 100% virgin wool, satin lined.
Exactly as promised - we are very pleased with the Glengarry hat.
I recently joined the Knights of St. Andrew and I needed a glengarry for my first meeting. The members told me to get one from the local Celtic store. But the store only had one in the wrong size, and their next shipment would arrive in two weeks. With no time to lose, I went online and found a few sites that sold Scottish apparel, at high prices with long delivery times. Then I found Sport Kilt. They had a glengarry in the size and style I needed, at a fair price, and they shipped it in time for me to make my first meeting.
This is a great hat. Too warm for the beach right now but I will wear this winter. Size is true. Quality is great. Buy it to wear or as a novelty. I just need to find my clan (my heritage is from Prussia, so I guess I am a goth)
While wearing my Sport Kilt Glenngarry at Inverness Scotland I was conplimented on its quality and craftmanship. Enough said.
I needed my cap in a hurry and Sport Kilt delivered in a flash! Great looking product that exceeded my high expectations.
This is my second Glengarry from Sportkilt. I now own a diced and a plain black. Both hats look and feel like good quality items. The prices were good and delivery was quick.
This Glengarry looks GREAT! I happened to own a very generic, silver "Scotland" pin, which I affixed to the proper area of the Glengarry. I ordered just the right size. It looks best when I wear a short sleeve khaki shirt with my Sport Kilt and am trying to affect a quasi-military look. If I could find a used British army jacket, I could wear a long sleeved khaki shirt and black service tie and it'd be perfect. I love my tartan tam, but the Glengarry expands my options!
Yes I received the glengarry. Being St Patricks Day time I already have worn it a lot. Thanks for your quick shipping so I would have it. Ed
Thanks Sport Kilt; this is just the glengarry I wanted. The fit is true to size and the quality is superb. I will shop with you again!
Glengarry arrived nearly overnight. Value for money is excellent as this is as well made as Glengarry's I've seen going for over twice as much.
