Daywear Argyle Kilt Jacket (Black)


Product Description


Our 100% wool black J. Higgins daywear argyle kilt jacket features silver square rampant lion buttons, one outer left chest pocket, two lower body pockets, and two inside chest pockets. We recommend pushing these tricky square buttons through the buttonholes via their side first rather than the pointed tip. Our black jackets are usually in stock and ready for immediate shipment. We craft these in even sizes 32 to 60 in short (5'9" & under), regular (5'10'' to 6'0''), long (6'1" to 6'2"), and extra-long (6'3" & up). Made by our talented staff right here in Kansas City. Exchangeable and returnable if the first size doesn't fit.

Our jackets are available with your choice of three sleeve styles as shown below:

  1. Very well made kilt jacket

    Posted by Brian on 22nd Jul 2023

    This is a great kilt jacket and very well made. Overall the fit at the chest and sleeves is spot on. The waist (on me), however, is quite "generous." I may decide to have it taken in (at least 2"), but for now it will serve me well.

  2. Excellent Quality

    Posted by Bagpiper Tom on 18th Mar 2022

    I first made mistake and ordered a jacket from elsewhere. Had to return theirs. Quality of the cloth really matters. JH is the best you can look to buy here in USA. Don't make mistakes and waste weeks with someone else. They additionally made it a rush order to help me have it for a pipe job. Thank you

  3. High quality - very fast!

    Posted by Nathan Fullerton on 23rd Jan 2022

    I had a last-minute event and JH managed to get me the jacket in 2 days!

    The jacket itself is very high quality, is comfortable, and looks great! I am a very satisfied customer. :-)

  4. Great Material, Great Fit

    Posted by Royce Myers on 9th Nov 2021

    Formal Jackets never fit me. I always need some extensive tailoring, and this jacket fit me right away. I never thought I could get something online that fit, but color me wrong. I'm delighted with the material and fit.

    I deducted a star because the quality of the shiny bits are lacking. It's a great jacket, and the shiny bits are easy to replace when you'll need to.

  5. Lightweight Argyle jacket

    Posted by Russ M. on 28th May 2021

    I was in need of a lightweight Argyle day jacket. The weather is just too hot her in southeastern Virginia to be wearing a normal weight wool argyle. A few years ago, I ordered the lightweight Prince Charlie from J. Higgins. I contacted John to ask if there was any possibility of ordering an Argyle jacket in the lighter weight wool blend. He said yes, I said make me one. I received it a few months ago. I love it. Very comfortable in the heat and humidity. Another fine product from Higgins. Top quality workmanship!! Whenever people ask me where to buy a kilt of any other Scottish woolen product, I ALWAYS tell them, J. Higgins. Thank you John.

  6. Nice!

    Posted by Jed Becker on 12th Jan 2021

    A sharp looking jacket. Comfortable. Excellent customer service.

  7. This is a very fine jacket.

    Posted by Robert Moore on 30th Jul 2020

    The construction and build of this jacket is very very good. The jacket fits very well and the wool fabric looks like it will maintain it’s fine appearance for a very long time. The jacket is comfortable to wear, does not bind up while holding my bagpipes and the sleeves do not ride up my arms while holding the chanter, which was very important to me. I would 100% buy this jacket again if I ever needed to. J Higgins also has the best customer service out there.

  8. A High Quality Item

    Posted by Joe Paolillo on 14th Oct 2019

    This is a beautiful jacket. The quality of material and construction is unbelievable for the price. I called with my measurements and Mr. Higgins suggested a size that fits perfectly. I've received many compliments on the jacket.

  9. Perfect fit, as usual

    Posted by Thom on 25th Sep 2019

    I don't know what it is about Higgins clothing products, but their stuff fits me perfectly, every time. I just replaced a ~20-year-old Higgins daywear jacket with another one, and once again, it fit me as if it had been tailored to my frame. Totally happy, once again!

  10. Jacket Review

    Posted by Aaron Kimzey on 4th Jan 2019

    This jacket has to be one of my most favorite items I have bought from this site. It fits super exceptionally well and gives off a lot of swagger! Best bang for your buck here! I would recommend that you call and order that way nothing gets confused and that you double check your measurements before ordering.
