Braemar Jacket Made to Measure

Braemar Jacket Made to Measure

The Braemar is a variation on the traditional one-button fastening Argyll kilt jacket. Instead of the Argyll's gauntlet cuffs, it has a distinctive three button arrangement along the sleeve. This imitates the formal Prince Charlie jacket, and both are an echo of when rank insignia was worn on the cuff in military uniforms, until 1920. Like the Argyll, the Braemar is the standard day-wear kilt jacket, which is versatile for a variety of semi formal or formal occasions. Our beautifully tailored Barathea Braemar Jackets have the option of adding a matching waistcoat. Our Braemar jackets are made from pure wool to give a luxurious feel.

Features:
  • Cloth braided epaulettes.
  • Single button fastening
  • Traditional Braemar three-button cuff
  • Internal pocket
  • Imitation horn buttons available in black or brown; or polished 'Clann na Gael' or Irish Harp metal buttons, available in chrome or antique silver.
  • Available in Black, Bottle Green, Rifle Green, Minch Blue, Navy Blue (as shown) or Red. 
Measuring advice:
  • Chest: measure around the chest at under-arm height, while wearing a shirt or t-shirt, with your arms by your side.
  • Waist: measure around the waist at roughly naval height - in line with the top of the hips. *This is higher than where your trousers sit*. Let us know if you're wearing your kilt when you do this, as it can sometimes add to your waist or act as a girdle. 
  • Sleeve length: find a suit jacket you already own that fits well, and measure from the shoulder seam down to the cuff. 
  • Back length: measure from the nape of the neck (where the top of your shirt sits) to the base of the spine - where your tailbone sticks out. This is a tricky measurement to take, so give us your height as well so we can check it.  

It is recommended, where possible, to take your waist measurement over your kilt. However, if this is not possible we can factor this in.
