The classic Prince Charlie jacket and waistcoat is traditional formal attire for events such as weddings, dinners, balls, or parties. It is normally worn with an 8 yard kilt, but can also be worn with tartan trews - black is the most popular because it can be worn with any kilt regardless of what colours make up the tartan. Prince Charlie jackets and waistcoats are hip length so they cover the top of the kilt. This product is made from 15 ounce barathea wool, and features braided epaulettes, satin lapels and square silver (nickel plated) jacket buttons. Though the jacket has 3 buttons on each side down the front, these are never fastened. There are also three buttons on each jacket cuff and another eight on the short tails down the back. Also comes with a black 3 button, single breasted waistcoat, which is made from 100% new wool and includes satin lapels and back. Both the jacket and waistcoat are dry clean only. The Prince Charlie is traditionally worn with off-white socks, ghillie brogues, a full dress sporran, and a bow tie (or ruche tie depending on your preference). When wearing your waistcoat with your Prince Charlie, you normally do not wear a kilt belt as the belt and buckle are not visible. Though named for the famous Jacobite leader, Prince Charlie jackets did not come into common usage until the 19th century, after the tartan revival initiated by Sir Walter Scott.
When measuring for your jacket and waistcoat please allow at least 1" or 2" give for comfort and movement. For example if you measure as a snug 38" chest order a 40" jacket. The additional size will allow for comfortable body movement when wearing the jacket and waistcoat. Ensure your measurements are accurate re-measure at least twice! If possible get a tailor or seamstress to measure you up.
