This formal and timelessly stylish jacket is the last word in sophisticated highland dress. Cut slightly higher than other jackets, the Prince Charlie is designed to flatter any shape whilst keeping the full length of kilt on display. Rest assured this isn't a budget import.
How we make it: Our Prince Charlie jackets and vests are made from top quality Barathea 100% pure new wool cloth with the lapels made from satin to complement a formal look. Our jackets are designed in such a way to allow for regular cleaning without any reduction in the quality or look of the jacket unlike many inferior jackets that you will find elsewhere. This will make your jacket a lifetime purchase.
When to wear it: The classic Prince Charlie 'Coatee' Jacket and Vest (waistcoat) is the traditional outfit for black tie formal evening wear events such as dinners, balls, or dances. Today, however, it is also widely worn at daytime weddings, by the groom and his ushers as well as by male wedding guests, as well as special events such as graduations.
What to wear it with: The Prince Charlie is traditionally worn with an 8 yard kilt in any tartan, kilt hose, and ghillie brogues. It is also traditional to wear a Full Dress Sporran with the Prince Charlie (and vice versa). To complete the look wear a black bow tie, though today you can choose a rouche or cravat if you are wearing it with an argyll 5 button vest for a more fashionable look. Most people do not wear a belt with the Prince Charlie, as the buckle can cause the vest (waistcoat) to lie badly, and is mostly hidden in any case.
