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.

- Outstanding fit and quality! dean
Price Value QualityThe fit was perfect and the quality exceeded my expectations. (Posted on 1/29/2015)
- Exactly as expected MollysMom
Price Value QualityBoth pieces are of a nice weight wool and constructed very well. They look great on and I expect them to hold up over time and use. I took the site's advice in sizing up and these fit my husband perfectly. And the shipping was great! The package came very quickly. Even though I ordered in the panic days shortly before the Christmas holiday, it arrived it time for it to go under the tree. Very happy all around and would unhesitatingly purchase more from here again. (Posted on 1/11/2015)
- 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 10/14/2014)
- Quality matching pair Dean
Price Value QualityJacket and vest match well, and the quality lives up to the images shown here. No problems at all with the fit of either. (Posted on 10/14/2014)
- 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 10/14/2014)
- 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 10/14/2014)
- 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 10/14/2014)
- 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 10/14/2014)
- 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 10/14/2014)

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.
