STOCK Size measuring instructions:
The vast majority of our customers fit into a jacket that is a stock size (i.e. 44 Reg or 48 Long). To figure out which size will fit you best, follow the instructions below.
This measurement is best taken using a cloth tape measure, while wearing a t-shirt.
Lift up your arms and wrap the tape measure around your chest at the widest point (you can then put your arms down).
Breathe "normally" and don't over inflate or exhale too much.
Take the measurement (not snug) at the widest part of your chest.
Add 2" to 3" to that number to reach the next "even" number up. Example: If you measure 43 to 44, you would order a size 46. If you measure 41 or 42, you would order a size 44.
Short / Regular / Long
5' 4" to 5' 9" - Short
5' 10" to 6' 1" - Regular
6' 2" to 6' 4" -Long
If you are taller than 6'4", contact us for an Extra Long or Extra Extra long.
MADE TO MEASURE Jacket instructions:
If you find that standard jacket sizes don't fit your frame due to an overly athletic build (very broad shoulders with tiny waist) or a stout build (rounded shoulders with a large waist), then we can gladly make a jacket tailored to your frame. We will need the following measurements, as well as your height and 3 pictures of you in a form fitting shirt from the front, side and rear view.
Lift your arms and wrap the tape measure around your torso at the widest point. Put your arms down. Stand tall and "at ease". Do not over inflate your chest. Just stand and breathe normally. Measure loosely around the chest at under arm height while wearing a t-shirt.
Measure loosely around your "True Waist" at your naval while wearing a shirt.
Put on a well fitting suit jacket. Keep your arms at your side. Find the center back, center seam, starting at 6" below the collar. Measure from that point to the seam where the arm meets the jacket body (roughly 4" down from the shoulder). If you do not have a suit jacket, measure from the spine (4" below base of neck) to the edge of your shoulder.
Put on a well fitting suit jacket. Keep your arms at your side. Measure from the shoulder seam (the top of the sleeve where it meets the jacket body) to the cuff. If you do not have a suit jacket, measure from the edge of the shoulder, down your arm to where you'd like the sleeve to end. Typically, jacket sleeves end 1.5" to 2" above the base knuckle of the thumb, breaking at the wrist or slightly lower. Roughly 1/4" to 1/2" of shirt sleeve should show below the cuff of the jacket.

Value Quality PriceIf you want an excellent quality formal outfit with your kilt at a reasonable price, this is the wat to go. This is the uniform for my Pipe Band, the Clan MacLeod Pipes And Drums, and works perfectly for Funerals and other events. Be sure to order one full size larger for a good fit!

- Must have item Rascal
Price Value QualityThis jacket and vest combination is beautiful, and IMHO, a must have item for any kilt wearer. Quality is top-notch. This is a great way to dress up for any occasion short of full-on formal. (Posted on 3/16/2020)
- Great buy! Frank
Quality Price ValueI purchased the jacket and vest for use at events other than the games I attend regularly. The fit is excellent for both. The jacket has a good heft to it, and is very comfortable. The sleeves hit my wrists perfectly. There are two very generous inside pockets - and no one will know that your cell phone is tucked in there. I dressed the outfit up fairly formally for a recent event at church, and the jacket / vest worked perfectly. I don't own a fly plaid, but it would have done nicely. I think. The jacket and vest make a really sharp looking outfit for a very nice price. I look forward to many years use out of them.... (Posted on 2/10/2020)
- Excellent quality, they're serious about upsizing. Shaun A.
Value Quality PriceI really feel like a million bucks wearing this with my Premier Kilt! Looks great, feels made-to-last. One word about sizing, they're serious about sizing up. I wear a 42 Regular suit jacket, but I usually need it let out a tad and sometimes need a little more in the sleeves. I ordered this combo in 44 Regular, like they recommend, thinking I could probably get away with it, and it juuuuust fits me. The sleeves were a wee bit short, so if you're on the edge of a size, as in you wear a 42 but usually need it let out or lengthened to fit you well, consider jumping 2 sizes or going from Reg. to Long, or maybe doing the custom measuring option. I'd order a 46 Long if I wanted another, just to have a little more space in it. Fortunately, I have a good tailor who was able to let the sleeves out, but he wasn't happy with me, having to reposition those buttons and hide the holes from where they were. he managed, but I got lucky that he was able to do it. This is 100% my issue and is in no way intended to be a remark on the quality of the items, which is excellent. Just something to think about as you're ordering, which you should definitely do, if you're not going for a Prince Charlie. (Posted on 1/15/2020)
- Perfect! Edward
Quality Price ValueI bought the jacket and vest after thinking long an hard about which jacket (other than my tweed) would work best in my culture and also meet the need to 'dress up'. The black makes it look formal enough, especially with a vest. The sizing directions are spot on; one size bigger works! (Posted on 12/10/2019)

PLEASE NOTE: Our jackets are made in the UK and tend to run a bit snug. If you normally wear a suit size 44 Reg, order a 46 Reg. If you wear a 48 Long, order a 50 Long.
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.
AvailabilityWhile we try to keep a wide range of sizes in stock, we are occasionally caught between shipments. If you need your jacket for a specific date, please contact us to check availability.
