Kilt Society™ Essentials
Standard Black Prince Charlie Jacket & Vest
The jacket and 3 button waistcoat are made in 15oz pure wool known as Barathea, which is a style of weaving that gives a matt finish with a textured effect. This provides a good contrast to the satin lapels on both the jacket and waistcoat. The waistcoat has an adjustable strap on the back which you can alter to suit your shape.
The Prince Charlie jacket is very short to show off the full front of your kilt, and this is in keeping with wearing a kilt higher than trousers. It doesn’t fasten either, but that means that you see the waistcoat clearly too. The tapered, tailored style of the jacket is emphasised by the addition of three square Celtic buttons on each front, which follow the line of the jacket from the waist towards the shoulders. Because the jacket is short, it has no outer pockets, but has two deep inside pockets instead. There are two pockets on the waistcoat too, which may be stitched closed but you can snip the thread to open them if you want to use them. Otherwise, the stitching keeps the waistcoat flat and neat and can be left in place.
At the back, the jacket has two tail panels which are decorated with a stitched cuff effect, buttoned with matching Celtic design square buttons. This lies over the stitched section of your kilt, and leaves the pleats fully uncovered so your kilt will swing freely when you are ceilidh dancing. Your tails might well fly when you dance too!
The sleeves also have stitched, buttoned cuffs and are available in three lengths, short, regular and long. The jacket and waistcoat set comes in many sizes, so make sure you check our Measuring Guide before you order. This is particularly important when ordering online, so that you get the correct size. Of course we’ll exchange any item for you, but we aim to help you get it right first time. Our experience tells us that you should always measure carefully before ordering – you never know how you may have changed since you last measured!
