Braemar Barathea Jacket & 5-Button Vest
Occasion: Day/Business/Semi Formal
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 Braemar jackets and vests are made from pure wool to give a luxurious feel.
If wearing a necktie with this jacket, it should be of a plain colour that complements the kilt. Tartan ties are generally worn by pipers and drummers.
The Traditional Braemar Jacket can be worn with or without a 5-button vest and is usually accompanied with a belt and buckle set when a waistcoat is not worn. The tweed variant is especially well-suited for semi-formal or casual occasions. Other colours available upon request.
