The simplest kilt jacket, the Tweed, carries a clout that that is much more than the sum of its elegantly-tailored parts. This is contemporary highlandwear at its finest, combining a modern aesthetic with luxurious heritage fabrics and quality craftsmanship. Whilst technically a daywear jacket, it is increasingly popular at semi-formal evening events.
An investment piece, the tweed is a favourite amongst grooms and highlandwear afficionados. They’ve not been in circulation long enough to put it to the test, but this is a kilt jacket that we’d like to see handed down…
HOW TO WEAR IT
Tweeds are the go-to choice for weathered tartan fans, but they look wonderful with virtually everything. Try holding oneof these jackets against different cloths and you’ll be amazed by the unexpected colours that pop out of its dense weave. Like the Holyrood, tweeds can be styled up and down. Match your sporran to the event (full fur for evening wear, a military day sporran for a romantic stroll in the park etc) and go from there. Brogues are a popular alternative to ghillie brogues, well-suited to the Tweed’s nonchalant-luxury vibe. We like the look of a brown accessory. But nobody likes a kiltmaker with too many opinions.
