The Traditional Argyll is a versatile day wear jacket. It can be worn with a straight tie for casual events or a bow tie for formal events. The 5 button waistcoat also gives the option to wear a ruche/cravat tie.
Made from 13oz Barrathea Wool, the high quality jacket comes in a regular fit with chrome buttons, gauntlet cuffs, plain cloth epaulettes, single button front and 5 button waistcoat. The jacket should remain unfastened so that the buttons of the waistcoat can be seen.
The kilt, which is made in Scotland, is made from 8 yards of 100% worsted wool. The kilt is fully hand-stitched except for the pleating, which is machine stitched. There are 3 sizing straps, 2 around the waist and 1 around the hips for better shaping round the body which adds to the ‘swing’ of the pleats. There are 2 belts loops at the back of the kilt and 2 hanging loops.
Please note that some tartans have additional charges due to their cloth costing more to produce.
Also included in this package are durable leather brogues with long laces, black or cream kilt hose, tartan flashes, replica sgian dubh, kilt pin and a black semi dress sporran.

Our fully handmade kilts can be ‘re-made’ in the future which means the kilt can stay in your family for generations. ‘Re-making’ allows us to open the kilt back up into 8 yards of material and completely re-size it to fit another set of measurements. An extremely worthwhile investment.
If you are placing an order online, we will contact you to discuss the measurements and make sure your sizes are perfect. To measure yourself, here is our measurement guide.

I fell in love with this outfit when I first saw it online. Hunting MacGregor tartan with the burgundy tie. I have worn it twice so far and both times I have been the centre of attention (it helps being in New York). Thank you again MacGregor and MacDuff. A very happy customer.
For years I have worn the traditional prince charlie outfit and I did me well for most events, weddings, dinners and the like, but I wanted something different and this Argyll jacket caught my eye and I am glad it did. I can still wear this to weddings but its slightly more casual, which is what I notice people are wearing these days. So delighted all round.
Thanks again for the quick turnaround. Very happy with purchase.
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.
