Prince Charlie Made to Measure

Prince Charlie Made to Measure

This stylish, formal evening jacket can be worn to all formal functions where a black tie is requested such as weddings, dances and fancy dinner receptions. The Prince Charlie was developed from older military mess jackets, but has evolved by itself as an iconic piece of Higlandwear. Our Prince Charlie Jackets and Vests are tailored in the UK using the finest quality barathea wool cloth. 

 This Prince Charlie Jacket is a higher cut than an Argyll jacket and is completed with a 3 button evening waistcoat. 
  • 100% 19oz Barathea Wool
  • Fine  lining
  • Silk Braided epaulettes
  • Metal 'Clann na Gael' buttons, available in chrome or antique silver
  • Available in Black, Bottle Green, Rifle Green, Minch Blue, Navy Blue or Red
To compliment this jacket we suggest wearing a bow tie with a wing collar shirt, dress sporran and 8 yard kilt.

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 an inch-and-a-half below where the top of your kilt sits. 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.
