A very versatile jacket for Police Departments. Our Class A Honor Guard jacket comes with metallic silver trim collars and epaulettes, two front pockets, two inside pockets, two belt hooks and easy-to-remove buttons. Standard buttons are our chrome thistle buttons, but you can even send us your department buttons and we'll put them on. You can also order without buttons and put yours on using our sleeve access for easy mounting. This doublet has become very popular mainly due to its attractive price and clean look.
We make these jackets using a wool blend of 55/45 similar to traditional Honor Guard jackets. Available in stock sizes 38 to 58 in regular (25" sleeve) and long (26.5" sleeve) sizes and exchangeable if the first size doesn't fit. We can even quote you a price with honor guard pants too if you are interested. Waist belt, kilt and sporran sold separately.
We want to introduce you to Drum Major Jason Paguio. Jason is a 5 time World Drum Major Champion. Here he is at the 2016 World Championship wearing his J. Higgins Napier kilt and Class A Honor Guard jacket. We were truly honored to tailor Jason's kilt and jacket. Jason tells us his outfit was the only one with zero dress fault deductions in the contest.
Well done Jason! Congratulations on your 2nd place in 2016!

Class A Honor Guard jacket
Posted by Unknown on 2nd Apr 2022
I have owned this same jacket for the past 6 years. It has stood up to moderate use as a bagpipers jacket. It has retained its quality over that time.
I recently purchased a new Class A jacket again from JHiggjns. I ordered a larger size as my previous one had become snug. The new jacket again retained the same high quality, fit and finish.
Saying its excellent is an understatement

This jacket is a fine garment that looks amazing. The fit and structure give the jacket the appearance that it was tailored to fit me exactly. The silver piping and chrome thistle buttons create a striking contrast and with wearing a belt on top of the jacket with the provided support hooks creates a very clean appearance. Coupled together with a horse hair sporran and you’ll look very sharp.
No. 2 Military Dress

I bought the jacket and matching Sam Browne cross belt to pipe at a veterans funeral. At 102 degrees it was a better choice than the full military dress. Much easier to don and doff. The veteran's honor guard loved the look and gave many compliments. I'll be wearing the No. 2 Dress more often.

Very Comfortable and Sharp Looking Jacket
Posted by CONNIE L CARLSON on 9th Jul 2018
First of all, I have to say the service was fantastic to say the least. Secondly, the jackets are very comfortable even in triple digit temperatures. I am going to order another one - a size smaller - but I got this other one due to time constraints and the one I needed was out of stock- but that was not the fault of the company. I will either sell the one I had or tailor it - but it still looked good even though a wee bit larger than wanted. We received TONS of compliments as a result. I don't see the option here to post a picture of us wearing our jackets with our kilts and all else from this past weekend - back to back events that were popped up on us at the last minute. Thank YOU for accommodating us and making it happen that we all could wear our tunics/jackets for these important events this past weekend. I am here to tell you these jackets are VERY comfortable to say the least. Top quality!!!!! THANKYOU!!!! (John's reply: Thank you for the kind words. I'm glad you like the jackets. We like making them. You are most welcome to email me photos and I'll put them up on our facebook page!).

Our post has been looking for a formal Honor Guard jacket for some time. This was half the cost of other brands. Lighter weight but still awesome looking. If I could add a photo of it I would. Delivery was 3 days as standard US shipping, Was not creased upon arrival and a light steaming did the job. The fit was better then expected for off the shelf sizes. We are happy with this product and would be happy to get more.

I felt very comfortable in the Jacket, I wore it in San Diego in cool weather and in El Centro in the heat for the Caltrans Fallen Workers memorial. I thought it looked very nice with my uniform. I dressed similar to Jason Paquio, I did add a belt
