Jacobite Kilt Shirts

The Jacobite kilt shirt is designed to be loose-fitting and very comfortable. It fastens with a lace threaded through the eyelets, creating a more casual look to your highland dress outfit. A Jacobite shirt, also known as Jacobean or Ghillie, is an informal traditional shirt usually worn with a kilt.

The term Ghillie refers to the criss-crossed lacing style as also seen on the Ghillie Brogue.
