Collection: Prince Charlie

First advertised in 1920s tailor catalogues as the trendy option for daring young men, the Prince Charlie is the most formal kilt jacket worn today - the glamorous highlandwear take on black or white tie.

The Prince Charlie is the perfect option for momentous occasions like weddings, grand dinners, dances and graduations. It’s a popular choice for a ‘first kilt outfit’. After all, dad will remember wearing one himself (perhaps in velvet, with a lace cravat, if it was the seventies). 

 HOW TO WEAR IT:

Paired with a matching three-buttoned waistcoat, the Prince Charlie should be worn with a bowtie and wing-collared shirt. Because formalwear has rules, tradition dictates accompanying black, cream or matching tartan hose, a dress sporran and well-shined black ghillie or buckled brogues. For those seeking a slightly less ‘polished’ effect, the traditional chrome buttons can be replaced with antique-finish ones (just be sure to match the cantle on your dress sporran accordingly). For a still more modern look, some renegades may opt for a five-buttoned waistcoat, which will allow them to wear a cravat or straight tie.
