Here we have a ‘Justacorps’ style jacket, with a short cut for wearing with a Great Kilt feileadh mor, or even with a Small Kilt feileadh beag. This is a cut for the mid to later eighteenth century, with a non-closable jacket and turn back cuffs. We have devised this pattern to look the part, while also being comfortable for the modern wearer.
This jacket can be made in a range of tweeds, or plain-cloth barathea, all 100% pure wool and lined in cotton. The back has large vents to better suit wearing with a feileadh mor.
The waistcoat is a buff-coloured cotton, with imitation horn buttons. Let us know if you’d rather it matches the jacket, or you’d like different buttons.
Please provide a firm chest measurement, a relaxed waist measurement, then a sleeve length measurement. The sleeve is best taken from a well-fitting suit jacket, taken from the top of the shoulder seam down along the outside of the arm, to the bottom of the cuff. If you supply your height as well, we’ll be able to check that looks right, The jacket length is made in proportion to the sleeve. Please also provide a bicep measurement – taken around the widest part of your upper arm – as the sleeves on this type of jacket are firmly fitted.
Completely made in our Glasgow workshop. These jackets are made to measure and made to order, due to an industry wide market demands,the lead time has increased to 20 weeks.
