The Tartan Vest can be a very 'over the top' way to show off your tartan. When paired with a matching kilt, it can be a striking and bold look for those confident enough to pull it off. With this model, you will also be able to customize your button preference from the choices given. As this vest is custom made at our tailor's in Glasgow, please allow 8 to 10 weeks for delivery.
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.

- Nice product dfpost
Quality Price ValueOrdered a vest (Kerr Hunting tartan) for my daughters wedding to wear under my suit jacket and love it. Appears to be made very well and fit was as described. I did order a size larger than my suite jacket (as directed) and was glad I followed that suggestion as it fits like a glove. A little pricey for a vest, but with the quality of the product received, it was worth it. Very proud to be able to sport the clan tartan at this very important occasion in my daughters life..

- Great Vest! Caleb Burch
Value Quality PriceAfter a lengthy wait (which was worth it, by the way), my vest finally arrived! I can't believe how well-made it is! The Tartan fabric matches by Kilt perfectly and everything is exactly as I'd ordered it!
The adjust belt in the back has a slightly different style of adjustment than I'm used to on other vests, and doesn't get as close of a fit on someone that's slim like I am, but I'll certainly make it work.
Overall, five stars, as always! (Posted on 7/20/2017)
- Love it ! Roger
Value Quality PriceI love the vest it is awesome!
I was a little disappointed at first that the pockets were fake, but after speaking with USA Kilts, they informed me that the pocket are not fake, but simply sewn closed.
As I have never owned a suite or fancy clothing before I did not know this was a thing that was done. I am exceptionally happy with the level of service provided and the vest itself is amazing. It fits wonderfully and the quality of all the pieces is just what i was hoping for. My fiance loves it also enough that i will be getting married in this fine vest, after the wedding it's definitely going to be my new going out vest.
I would recommend this vest strongly for anyone looking for a nice multipurpose vest.

- The best vest Tartan Martin
Price Value QualityI had spent some time designing and registering my own personal tartan with the Scottish Register of Tartans. When it came time to get my kilt and TARTAN VEST made, I researched several kilt makers both in the US and in Scotland. USA Kilts was VASTLY the most responsive. They understood that my kilt and TARTAN VEST will probably be the most custom items of clothing that I will ever buy. And USA Kilts was awesome to work with through the whole process. I could not be more satisfied. Thank you Rocky! (Posted on 8/26/2016)
- Looks fantastic with my kilt and under a jacket CW
Price Value QualityA fantastic article of clothing. Rocky advised me on the weight of the cloth (in relation to the kilt I had purchased) and he was spot on. It fits and looks great. A work of art in the MacDonald of the Isle Hunting tartan. (Posted on 3/5/2016)
