How do I choose the right tweed jacket to go with my kilt?
As with kilt hose, the best thing to do when selecting a tweed kilt jacket is to choose a color that tones well with your tartan. For instance, if you wear the US Navy tartan, then a blue tweed kilt jacket may be perfect. There are many color shades and tweed patterns to choose from so you can fully customize your look!
If you can’t decide on a color, consider a subdued grey argyle kilt jacket such as our ‘Braemar Jacket’. It can serve as a casual kilt jacket for many events and is a good stand-in for a tweed kilt jacket in warmer weather.
