    Have you tried looking here https://houseoflabhran.net/shop/ they have vintage tweed jackets though I do not know what mill they use.
    That would be the direction that I would be looking, if I was wanting a new tweed kilt jacket made.

    Those jackets and waistcoats are beautiful! But considerably more expensive than the places I've been looking, for example

    I am not being mischievous here, but if the "jackets and waistcoats are beautiful" and "considerably more expensive" than those you have in mind, then why not wait a while to save up the money to buy the more "beautiful" garments? With the greatest of respect, I would have thought you of all people would have the completely justifiable wish of looking your very best as a professional musician.

    I'll also recommend House of Labhran, I'll be enjoying this for decades to come. Well worth it. I also like check jackets

    Richard you could have a jacket made by any competent menís tailor you trust if you give him an existing kilt jacket to work from. Iím sure at your height youíve dealt with one or two. The tweed can be ordered from various sources:
    https://www.huddersfieldfinefabrics.com/
    https://www.bookster.co.uk/
    And many others!
    May or may not be a more economical option, certainly may be easier to work with someone closer than the U.K. especially fine tuning the fit. Nothing can replace the actual proper fitting of a jacket while it is being made! I would think this may be of some importance to ensure a tailored look while playing the pipes.

    Being a man is a matter of maturity,
    Being a gentleman is a matter of choice!
