We believe that wearing highland wear with confidence goes a lot further than being one of the crowd! Choosing your jacket and waistcoat often comes down to how many types of functions you’re planning on wearing it to. Are you looking for a classic highland dinner or day jacket in a dark colour, or is tweed your preferred fabric? Andrew Brookes can design a unique tweed hybrid jacket for clients that gives them the best of both worlds, thereby making this a truly versatile piece - an A-Game jacket for your highland kilt look, which also doubles up as a casual tweed jacket and waistcoat that can be worn with jeans and brogues or trainers on a Saturday night out.
Versatility is important, tailored jackets should be versatile and not restricted to one occasion. They should cover several looks in one, thereby reinforcing why an Andrew Brookes jacket is such a smart investment.
Hybrid waistcoats are also a specialism of Andrew Brookes, the design of the hybrid pieces ensure that you can pair them with a kilt, tartan trousers or formal suit trousers to create a three-piece suit.
A great handmade kilt is a life time investment. They normally take around six to eight weeks to deliver, with prices starting from £800. We hand-cut and dye leather straps to match sporrans, use brass buckles and handmade linings. Kilts can be personalised with embroidered detailing including name, date and special messages. Andrew Brookes studio can also design personal family tartans with specific colours and checks.
