- Best Service - Amazing Quality Geoff
Quality Price ValueI ordered this pair with custom tailoring for a wedding this August. Rocky called to let me know my measurements matched an off the rack coat and vest and if I went with the tailoring I would risk not being able to have the jacket by August. I agreed. The coat and vest arrived and fit perfectly. Worth every dime. I was so pleased with his service I rewarded him by ordering a new kilt (don't tell him, but I already own one). I love rewarding good service and Rocky is the tops. I recommend whole heartedly USA Kilts. (Posted on 6/10/14)

- nice product chris
Price Value QualityI was measured for the jacket and vest at the bethlehem celtic fest last year. The one size adjustment was spot on. Very slim fitting and good looking. A man in a kilt and an argyle jacket drives those "otlander women" wild. Lol. (Posted on 1/23/14)
- Very pleased Vern
Value Quality PriceThe jacket arrived sooner than expected and fit just as hoped for. Coupled with the kilt we purchased last winter provides an opportunity to wear as business formal. (Posted on 10/25/13)
- Brilliant! Doc Smith
Value Quality PriceGarments arrived as promised. Great customer service. They notified me of a slight delay, ultimately delivered a few days later. Excellent quality and fit. Agree that British sizes run small. Normally 50 regular, loose fit; the 52R is a perfect fit. (Posted on 9/20/13)
- One of the best buys ever! JamesM
Price Value QualityA quality product. Rocky and his crew have provided a perfect combination with the jacket and vest. The fit couldn't be any better is it was hand tailored.
Thank you all for a great buying experience! (Posted on 3/20/13)
- Great pair DEXTER
Price Value QualityThe jacket and vest are a great pair. Made of good quality materials, and fits well. I am usually somewhere between a 42R and a 44R in more european cuts, and this jacket and vest are true to description - I fit perfectly in a 44R. (Posted on 11/20/12)
- Quality matching pair Dean

- great Jacket and vest Kyle
Quality Price ValueI got these from USA Kilts, I had to send the vest back as it didn't fit very well, the jacket was a perfect fit. I needed a 44L in the vest and a 46R in the jacket, seems a bit odd, but Rocky was happy to help and make it right. (Posted on 9/21/11)

Formality of Jacket Styles Guide:
There are several different styles of jackets (and vests) which span the scale from daywear to formal. This is a quick guide to our jackets and their appropriate level of dress.
Prince Charlie jacket and vest:
The Prince Charlie jacket and vest (also known as a PC Jacket) is worn for formal (black tie) events. In your mind, equate this jacket to a ‘tuxedo’ type outfit. Places you’d wear a tuxedo, a PC would be appropriate.
Argyll jacket (with or without vest):
This is one of the more versatile jackets. It’s a bit dressier than a Tweed jacket and less formal than a PC. In a situation calling for khakis and a blazer, the jacket (no vest) could be worn with the kilt and not be overdressed. When worn with the vest, the outfit could be worn in place of a ‘nice suit’. Also, the vest provides a bit of versatility in itself… you can wear it alone with a shirt and tie or leave off the tie and roll up your sleeves for a casual dressy look.
Tweed jacket (with or without vest):
Very similar in cut and style to the Argyll, this jacket and vest is made from tweed cloth, giving it a little bit of an ‘earthy’ or ‘natural’ feel. In Scotland, it’s still often worn to dressy functions (much like the Argyll), but here in America, we often relegate tweed jackets to ‘daywear’. That NEED NOT be the case. If you’re going to be a guest at a wedding, you would look perfectly fine in a tweed jacket and vest.
Brian Boru jacket and vest:
The Brian Boru jacket and vest is effectively the Irish equivalent of a Prince Charlie (see above)… it is worn for formal (black tie) events. In your mind, equate this jacket to a ‘tuxedo’ type outfit. Places you’d wear a tuxedo, you can wear a Brian Boru.
Kilkenny jacket (with or without vest):
The Kilkenny jacket and / or vest is effectively the Irish equivalent of an Argyll (see above). In a situation calling for khakis and a blazer, the jacket (no vest) could be worn with the kilt and not be overdressed. When worn with the vest, the outfit could be worn in place of a ‘nice suit’. Also, the vest provides a bit of versatility in itself… you can wear it alone with a shirt and tie or leave off the tie and roll up your sleeves for a casual dressy look.
Welsh Prince Charlie jacket and vest:
The Welsh PC jacket and vest are similar to their Scottish Prince Charlie counterpart, but differ in the details… they have gold buttons (not silver), red dragons embroidered on the epaulette and come with or without Welsh tartan accents. Like the Scottish PC jacket, they are worn for formal (black tie) events. In your mind, equate this jacket to a ‘tuxedo’ outfit. Places you’d wear a Tuxedo, you can wear a Welsh PC.
These are worn mostly by pipe bands and military organizations for formal dress. They would be worn in place of a military dress outfit.
