Sourcing the perfect kilt
Kilts look amazing in those wedding photos and their history and tradition make them an amazing piece of menswear. However simply selecting one is just the start of the process – you also need to ensure you wear the right jacket and accessories.
For example, for formal wear, the kilt should be paired with traditional evening wear attire, usually the Prince Charlie jacket outfit. This includes a three buttoned waistcoat, a plain shirt and either a black, plain or colour matches bow tie. You also want to get the right hose (those special long socks) – these should never be white, but you can go with cream.
Semi-formal wear kilts
If the event is a little less formal, then you can do with something like an Argyll jacket and a five button waistcoat. There is also the matter of accessories to go with your kilt that is an integral part of the look and also quite practical. One example is the kilt pin which is placed at the bottom of the open fringed corner to add weight and keep it in place.
We can help with all of these issues from selecting the right kilt tartan and jacket to the finishing touches to perfect your outfit. And if your group needs a mixture of kilts and other formal wear options, we can also help with these.
