Create your Perfect Kilt for any occasion!

We are a family business supplying quality menswear, both online and via our shops on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey, and West Sussex for over 50 years. We stock traditional menswear and also cover a wide range of country and business occasional wear. In the last few years we have introduced a very successful hire service via our shops and website.

As you will see, we are able to advise and supply for every formal occasion - specialising with Kilt Hire. Being of direct Scottish ancestry, we simply love the drama and effect of putting you in full Highland dress. Your Scottish links may be frankly minimal, but you will still be impressed - just give us the opportunity to show you how.



All the samples we are showing are 13oz : £450, but are almost always available in 16oz : £475 if the customer prefers.
