The 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. Prince Charlie jackets and waistcoats are hip length so they cover the top of the kilt. This product is made from a wool/poly blend, and features braided epaulettes, satin lapels and square silver 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 matching 3 button, single breasted waistcoat, which is also a wool/poly blend 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.
