Our tartan waistcoats are a stylish and versatile addition to your wardrobe. Worn on it's own or as a 3 piece suit with tartan trousers and jacket, our classic feminine cut tartan waistcoat is a flattering addition to any outfit. Our women's tartan waistcoat is carefully made to order so you can choose a co-ordinating or contrasting colour for the back of your waistcoat or we will choose one for you. Choose a simple cut or lapels in satin or velvet and customise little details like the colour of the stitching on the button holes to create a truly unique outfit. Not to mention the choice of over 500 tartans. Pastel check tartans and tweeds can also be used on request. And of course we use the finest quality tartan fabric woven right here in Scotland. 

Our sizing guide below will help you to guide you in choosing the correct size for our Tartan Waistcoat, and we also ask for a few extra measurements just to double check. Use the Order Notes box in the shopping basket to provide any extra information or you can of course email us after you have placed your order if you miss this!

How we make your waistcoat

The Fabric

We use a top quality lightweight 10oz tartan fabric woven in Scotland to make your waistcoat. If you want a heavier weight waistcoat we can also use a 13oz or 16oz wool. A surcharge will apply for heavier fabrics.

Making your Tartan Waistcoat

Buying a beautifully tailored item created from Scottish cloth is creating a classic piece for your wardrobe that will look good for years. Our waistcoats are made from a lightweight wool woven in Scotland, fully lined and beautifully finished. You can customise lots of details if you wish. See below for all the options!

The Detail

Your waistcoat is already an original as you choose the tartan and we tailor it to your measurements. But the fun doesn't end there and you can request so many details to make your waistcoat even more special. You can choose the colour of your lining and back of the waistcoat. Or we can of course make it with a tartan back if you prefer. Be bold and go for a contrast colour or take a more sedate co-ordinating colour to suit the occasion. Buttonhole stitching can be emphasised to match a stripe or check. Button colours will match the base colour as standard or you can select any colour you like. Pocket styles changed to be jetted or flaps. Your tartan waistcoat is not only made to measure but also made to your specification. Surcharges may apply for some extras. Email us for more information.

The Tartan

Your waistcoat is made to measure just for you and you can choose from over 500 Scottish clan tartans. If you can't find the one you are looking for please ask as we may be able to source it for you.

How to care for your tartan waistcoat

Properly cared for your waistcoat will last for years. This is a pure wool fabric and should be dry cleaned only. Wool fabric can become dull with general dust and dirt. Gentle brushing with a garment brush will brighten it up again.
