The Holyrood is an Argyll jacket in a lightweight tweed. You may have heard it referred to as a Crail. Or perhaps a Braemar. Whatever you call it, it’s rapidly become a highlandwear staple since Gordon first championed its charcoal version in the mid-noughties. We call it the Holyrood in honour of the royal residence a few doors down from our Canongate home.
By combining stylised period details with contemporary tweeds, the Holyrood caters to traditionalists and non-traditionalists alike. It is a popular choice for daytime events, such as weddings and graduations.
HOW TO WEAR IT
The appeal of the Holyrood lies in its versatility. It can be worn with any style of sporran to suit the occasion - from full fur to the simplest day leather. At GNK, we like our hose to match our Holyroods. Alternatively, you might coordinate your tie to your jacket, and match your hose to a colour in your tartan. The wide range of Holyroods and potential accessories leaves plenty of room for self-expression.
