What is an Argyll Jacket?

  • Scottish kilt jackets can be confusing. If you are unsure what you need, the Argyll jacket and matching vest is the easiest option. The Argyll is the most common kilt jacket today (sometimes spelled Argyle kilt jacket). Unlike the Bonny Prince Charlie kilt jacket, Sheriffmuir kilt jacket or Doublet (the military kilt 8>jacket), the Argyll is relatively simple and easy to wear for most occasions.
  • An Argyll set is usually sold as a kilt jacket and waistcoat. The two match perfectly or can be worn separately for different occasions. For example, you can wear the vest by itself for a warm Celtic festival day or at the Highland Games. Argylls are great for anything from date night to a kilted wedding or black tie dinner.
  • The Argyll comes in black with chrome silver kilt jacket buttons. You often find it offered as a hire kilt jacket (rental) or if you see ex hire kilt jackets for sale on ebay, chances are they are Argylls.

What is a Prince Charlie Jacket and Vest?

  • The Prince Charlie, or Bonny Prince Charlie, is Scottish formal wear - like a tuxedo you wear with your kilt. It usually comes in black, but other colors can be custom-ordered. It is usually used as a set - a jacket and vest (waistcoat) together.

How / When do you wear a Prince Charlie Jacket?

  • The Bonnie Prince Charlie coatee (tail coat) is designed for formal occasions such as white tie dinners or a kilted wedding. Many Masons and members of other fraternal groups use the Prince Charlie as part of their dress uniform. Some people think that you must wear an 8 yard kilt with the Prince Charlie Jacket, but this is not necessarily true. A “PC” can also be worn with a 5 yard kilt or tartan trews. You will almost certainly be wearing a bow tie and wing collar shirt with it, though occasionally some men wear a ruche tie.
