Jackets

Coatee (Prince Charlie jacket) Left. The Coatee and waistcoat or vest is by far the most popular formal jacket for evening wear. Also known as the Prince Charlie, the fabric is usually black barathea but other fabrics such as velvet can certainly be used . Normally the lapels are of silk. The buttons down the front of the coatee are for decoration only and are not used. Photo Kinloch Anderson.

 

Kenmore Doublet

Right. The Kenmore doublet was actually designed by William Anderson & Son back in 1900 - the Edinburgh firm that became Kinloch Anderson - this is a single-breasted evening jacket that is a simplified version of the old-fashioned doublet. There are 'Celtic' buttons on the flaps front and back, on both sleeves and there five on the front for fastening.

The Kenmore is normally worn with a jabot and lace cuffs and can be of barathea or other fabrics such as velvet. Photo Kinloch Anderson.

Montrose

Left. The Montrose Doublet is a double breasted short cut evening jacket with high collar and 10 symmetrically positioned Celtic buttons on the front, 3 Celtic buttons on each cuff and an epaulette with a Celtic button on each shoulder. This jacket is worn with a belt and normally with lace jabot and lace cuffs. A barathea cloth or rich velvet as used here is an ideal fabric for this jacket. Photo Kinloch Anderson. 

Sheriffmuir doublet and vest.

Right. The Sheriffmuir Doublet is a high-collared evening jacket, fastened at the top button with a curved cut-away front featuring 5 Celtic buttons on either side, 3 Celtic buttons on each cuff and epaulettes with a Celtic button on each shoulder. There are flaps at the front and back with 3 Celtic buttons. AS with all the evening jackets, this can in barathea or, as shown here, in velvet. This should always be worn with a jabot but the lace cuffs are optional. Photo Kinloch Anderson.

Regulation doublet

Left.This Regulation Doublet is another old Wm. Anderson design which modernised the tradtional regulation doublet identified by its very formal shoulder shells, piping and blazer lapels. The newer version borrows the lapels for the coatee (Prince Charlie) and the tails from the Sheriffmuir. Kinloch Anderson describe it as a "short cut evening jacket with silk lapels worn open with a low break point . . . . a rich velvet fabric is frequently selected for this jacket " Photo Kinloch Anderson.
