Evening Kilt Jackets
The Coatee & Vest is the most popular Evening or Formal kilt jacket. The Kinloch Anderson Coatee jacket is a short kilt jacket and although it has three Celtic buttons down the front these are never fastened. It also has three Celtic buttons on the jacket cuffs.
The back of the jacket features short tails with four Celtic buttons on each side arranged in a traditional pattern formation. Most frequently it is made in black barathea fabric with silk lapels but other coloured barathea and other fabrics such as velvet can also be used. The Vest (waistcoat) is fastened with three Celtic buttons. A jacket similar in style to the Kinloch Anderson Coatee and Vest is often referred to as a Prince Charlie jacket.
