Prince Charlie Barathea Jacket & 3-Button Vest

Prince Charlie Barathea Jacket & 3-Button Vest


Occasion: Formal/Evening

This stylish, formal evening jacket can be worn to all formal functions where a black tie is requested such as weddings, dances and dinner receptions. The Prince Charlie developed from older military mess jackets, but has evolved by itself as an iconic piece of Highland wear and should not be worn without a vest. Our Prince Charlie jackets and vests are tailored in Scotland using the finest quality 15oz barathea wool cloth and come in a variety of stock colours:  black, bottle green and navy blue. Other colours available upon request.

The Prince Charlie jacket is a higher cut than an Argyll and a 3-button evening waistcoat completes the set. This can also be worn with a tartan vest. The rule of thumb is that tartan worn above the waist (vest) or below the knee (hose) should be on the diagonal. One should never be uncomfortable in this jacket but it should look fitted.

Features: 100% 15oz barathea wool; thistle jacquard lining; silk braided epaulettes; polished ‘Clann na Gael’ square buttons. Other colours are available on request in heavier baratheas.

Sizing: Our jackets are made in Scotland and are sized differently than in North America. We recommend that you come in to get measured, if possible, and we will order it for you. Jackets are available in S-Short, R-Regular, L-Long (tall) from 36 - 56.

Disclaimer: If we do not size you, we do not take responsibility for the fit.

We try to ensure that every product is accurately represented online, however, colours may appear differently on different computer screens.
