Braemar Tweed Kilt Jacket
The semi-formal Braemar tweed day / evening jacket is similar in most ways to the Argyll, but with Prince Charlie style cuffs for a more formal look. The iconic tweed provides a stylish alternative to barathea wool. Tailored from top quality 13 oz cloth, this jacket will flatter any shape. The Braemar jacket is produced to traditional standards to keep its fit for many years to come.
Our Braemar jackets are made from top quality 13oz 100% pure new wool tweed cloth, with a single button on the front, two side vents, cuffs with 3 buttons, pocket flaps with 3 buttons, and flat cloth epaulettes. All buttons have washer and ring fittings.
The Braemar Kilt Jacket is popular for being a very versatile jacket. The formality of the jacket can be changed by altering accessories, so it is suitable for all sorts of occasions, such as dinners and Burns Suppers; balls, ceilidhs or other dances; weddings, graduations, or christenings; as well as Highland games or simply as general daywear.
Wear it during the daytime with a kilt in any tartan, a daywear sporran, and an ordinary shirt and tie. As more formal dress for evening events the Braemar jacket is best worn with a wing collared shirt and bow tie, plus semi-dress sporran, and ghillie brogues. Like the Argyll, the Braemar jacket is generally worn open.
Bone buttons are standard, but Silver Gilt or Antique Silver buttons are alternative options if preferred.
