Amazing Kilt Jacket!
Posted by SCOTT NICHOLSON on 19th May 2023
I was slightly hesitant about spending close to $200.00 for a jacket, however, the jacket I received fit like a glove, looked amazing, was correct in detail, and I got it really fast! Totally amazed at the awesome service I received from J.Higgins. Great job guy's!
I would recommend the Honor Guard Kilt Jacket

The Honor Guard Kilt Jacket is well made and looks sharp. J. Higgins customer service is top notch. I’m very pleased with the jacket and the customer service.
just all around perfect.

Bought this jacket for several upcoming events that require a perfect look. This is actually the second jacket for honours Guard I’ve pitched from J. Higgins. This company has the best customer service that I’ve ever dealt with. ( and I’ve been an officer for 4 decades ) The jacket(s) are crisp and perfect materials and construction. I’ve had uniforms from other vendors costing hundreds of dollars more. No comparison, Higgins is the best. I’m going to be needing to add more uniforms to my rotation and Higgins is my go to. Great Job, Cheers!!!

A Great Jacket
Posted by Jon Pipey Moritz on 24th Apr 2018
This jacket was well made and very sharp looking. I would be proud to wear one. The only problem I had was that the stock jackets are too short for someone over 6ft. They will custom make one but it will cost more. I was also very happy with the service I received. John's reply: Yes, this customer is 6'3" which is taller than our stock range supports, so if you are a similar height it would be best to have a special cutting which adds $100.00 to the $150.00 price.
Good lightwieght dress jacket
Posted by Mike P on 28th Jul 2017
Our Fire Dept pipe band decided to go with a good light weight alternate dress jacket and we purchased these off the shelf. We sized ourselves and sent in measurements. The first Jacket I received was just a little snug at the shoulder and bicep area but I called the customer service line and got the next size up Jacket within 3 days. Excellent customer service and worked with us to get correct fit.
I am well pleased with this item

This Tunic is well made and the help I received to get the correct fit was excellent.
Red Trim Class A Coat and Blue Trim Class A Coat
Posted by Unknown on 4th Aug 2015
I purchased both Class A honor guard coats; one with red trim and one with blue trim. Very good quality and at an excellent price. The blue trim coat would be excellent for police pipe bands. This company also has wonderful customer service. I've been very happy with my purchases from J. Higgins!
Can't say enough!

When I was shopping for a class A style jacket this one caught my eye, and the price was unbeatable. John even noticed I was looking and volunteered to help with questions. He told me they were adding sizes and options and I decided to wait to get just what I wanted. I received it and it's much better than I expected. Great craftmanship and a good medium weight. It's fully lined and the silver buttons I chose really make it pop. The sizing is right on as well. I can't say enough great things about this whole process and I will come here first when I'm buying piping supplies and highland wear in the future.
Great For That Solo Piping Gig!
