The drama and romance of the Prince Charlie jacket. The most formal of Highland jackets, and best suited to weddings and evening dress occasions.
This is a pure wool jacket and waistcoat, with satin lapels, and traditional square buttons – Yes, we know they are pain when you are in a hurry, but what an effect!
So why do we offer both a 3 Prince Charlie with a 3 and 5 button waistcoat? Very simply a Prince Charlie is worn with a 3 button waistcoat for evening occasions with a black bow tie. A 5 button waistcoat looks much better with a long tie or a ruche/cravat – it keeps the tie or ruche in place without flying around.
Even better, if you buy the Prince Charlie with either the waistcoat, you can then buy the other style at any later date – they do not have to be bought as complete outfits. Simply call me 01730 263105, and we will sort this out for you.
Our picture shows the Prince Charlie being worn with a plaid. It looks fantastic for a wedding picture. It is an option for virtually all our hire tartans, and a dramatic addition to make when having a bespoke kilt made.
