The Prince Charlie is our most traditional jacket making it ideal for formal events. The 5 Button Waistcoat adds a modern twist.
Made from 13oz Barrathea Wool, this high quality jacket comes with chrome buttons, crail cuffs, knotted epaulettes, tails at the back and a 5 button vest. The jacket doesn't fasten at the front so that the buttons on the vest can be seen.
There is the option to upgrade to antique or black buttons.
The Prince Charlie Jacket & Waistcoat gives the option to wear a cravat or straight tie. If you wish to wear a bow tie, a 3 button vest should be worn.

I was looking for something different to the traditional prince charlie style but had not found it. Laura showed me the 5 button option and I was sold straight away. Great quality.
Waist Take a firm (not tight) measurement at the navel. This is normally 2 inches higher than your hip bone.
Chest Size Take a loose measurement under the arms and over the shoulder blades.
Height The most important measurement! Ensure this is correct.
Kilt Length Measure from the top of the hip bone to the middle of the knee cap. You will need someone to help you take this measurement.
Sett Pattern - This is the most common way to have your kilt made. This is where the tartan on the front mirrors the tartan on the back.
Line Pattern - This is more of a military style where if there is a prominent line in the tartan this is seen down every pleat on the back of the kilt.
