  • Product Description

    The Argyll Vest is a great (and relatively inexpensive) way to dress up your kilt. You could wear it with a dress shirt unbuttoned at the top (no tie) and sleeves rolled up for the dressy - casual look. You could also wear it with a dress shirt and straight tie for more formal functions. Vests are a very versatile piece of clothing.  These vests are made in Scotland of the highest quality 15 oz Wool Barathea and satin backing (with a cinch for minor adjustability).



    While we do try to keep a wide range of sizes and lengths in stock for immediate shipment, these vests MAY take up to 8 weeks to ship if we don't have your size in stock. If you have any questions about availability, give us a call!



    These vests are made in the UK and are slim fitting.  If you normally wear an American suit size 42 Reg, please order a size 44 Reg. If you normally wear a 48 Long, order a 50 Long...

  • Measuring Instructions

    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.


    Chest Size

    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.


    Chest 

    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. 

     

     

     

    Waist 

    Measure loosely around your "True Waist" at your naval while wearing a shirt.


    Half Back

    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.


    Sleeve Length

    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.

    If you need assistance measuring, please do not hesitate to contact us: 800.368.8633 or Rocky@USAKilts.com

    I've purchased kilts, and hose, flashes and vests from USA Kilts and by far the best quality and great pricing make them the leaders in this field. I cannot say enough positive things about this vendor. Their attitude and level of customer service is unparralleled. (Posted on 6/12/2015)

    I needed a vest at the last minute before a wedding. I called the shop, it was in stock, and stopped by and wore the vest out the door. (paid first) Lots of praise from the other guest, Rocky made my kilt as well. (Posted on 12/20/2014)

    This vest is well made, using quality material. It is well cut,has good stitching, and the appointments are nicely done. Even I look particularly sharp in it. :)

    However, the best part of this transaction was in dealing with company. Their delivery was very fast, the product was well packed, and their return policy/process was easy. I had to get another size, and it was a breeze.

    These guys will get my business again! (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.

    The Doublet:

    These are worn mostly by pipe bands and military organizations for formal dress.  They would be worn in place of a military dress outfit.
