18th Century Kilt Jacket

Made to be the perfect accompanyment to our Great Kilts, while also being suitable for a modern small kilt, this jacket is cut to evoke the mid to later eighteenth century, while also being comfortable for a modern wearer. This is a non-closable jacket with turn-back cuffs and is highly customisable in the cloth and finish of your desire. A closable version is also available, devised to look the part for the earlier part of the century.

18th Century Jacket with Waist coat

Here we have a ‘Justacorps’ style jacket, with a short cut for wearing with a Great Kilt feileadh mor, or even with a Small Kilt feileadh beag. This is a cut for the mid to later eighteenth century, with a non-closable jacket and turn back cuffs. We have devised this pattern to look the part, while also being comfortable for the modern wearer. 

This jacket can be made in a range of tweeds, or plain-cloth barathea, all 100% pure wool and lined in cotton. The back has large vents to better suit wearing with a feileadh mor.

The waistcoat is a buff-coloured cotton, with imitation horn buttons. Let us know in the text box if you’d rather it matches the jacket, or you'd like different buttons.

18th century Waist Coat

Our eighteenth century style waistcoat is made with a buff-coloured cotton, shown here with imitation horn buttons. Features a period-appropriate lacing at the back to ensure a good fit.

Please provide a firm chest measurement, a relaxed waist measurement (at belly button height, not trouser height), and let us know how long you would like it to be (this can be taken from a well-fitting kilt waistcoat you already own, or else measure from the nape of your neck to the belt line of your kilt). If you supply your height as well, we’ll be able to check that looks right,

Completely made in Glasgow. These waistcoats are made to measure and made to order, which can take around four or five weeks.

We can also make long eighteenth-century waistcoats for wearing with breeches, or in full tartan, or any other fabric. Please contact us to discuss and we will work out a quote.
