    Informal Highland Attire or American Casual (Jacket and Tie)??

    Im attending a Game Hunt Dinner (Pheasant) wity the St. Andrews Society Of Phila at the Philadelphia Club in Phila -

    The invitation says Informal Highland Attire or American casual (Jacket and Tie), cocktail attire for the ladies

    Does that mean Argyll jacket and vest or I have a Lomond Blue tweed Braemer Jacket and vest , Gordon modern kilt and a red fox fir sporran for this occasion -

    They said Hunt or equestrian attire is encouraged

    Im leaning towards the Braemer Jacket and vest

    Thoughts?

    Thanks

    Jeff Little

    Tweed.

    I'm confused as to why fox hunting or equestrian dress would be encouraged. One doesn't hunt pheasant from horseback.

    Tweed and tattersall sounds like the most appropriate option.

    I would go with the blue tweed that you have. The difference between the jackets you are talking about are simply the cuff details.




    Crail
    The Crail Jacket has an all round functional look with a straight cuff and a single button. This jacket can be worn to both formal and casual occasions. Ideal day wear Jacket.

    Argyll
    An Argyll Jacket can be recognized by the gauntlet cuff, which add a little bit of bulk to the sleeve. Ideal for day wear or for a more prestigious day event.

    Braemar
    The Braemar Jacket follows the same button style on the cuff as the Prince Charlie cuff Ė a series of buttons vertically on the forearm of the cuff.

    This rather old fashioned British hunting, shooting, fishing and often kilted(in Scotland) gentleman is rather confused by the mixed messages from your post. So what I say will probably not help , but it might.

    What do “they” mean by dinner? In the Uk we dress for dinner, meaning a black tie and formal attire.

    What do “they “ mean by using the term “hunting” ? In the Uk that term is used for pursuing the quarry with a pack of hounds and often mounted on a horse.

    The term “informal Highland Attire or American casual” does not fit ,in my mind anyway, with the term of “dinner”.

    So what actually do they mean by using the word “hunt”? Horses and hounds? Or as the term used in the USA for shooting? I am glad that I did not get the invitation! I really would not know what to wear! It would have been fun to rub shoulders with fellow sportsmen and women though.

    The style of cuff on your jacket matters not. It is what the jacket is made of that might be more important.

    Why, oh why would anyone go to a dinner dressed in riding britches and hunting( horses and hounds)boots?

    All in all, I think the mixed and frankly rather baffling information from your post is somewhat clarified by what is written on the invitation and I think FossillHunter’s suggestion sounds a fair bet.

    Finally. Welcome from Inverness-shire.

    What Jock said.......

    What they want is an old country aesthetic, no duck hunter camo it would seem. As long as your not in camo, with a painted face drinking out of a camo yeti cup that cost more than some 3d world countries GDP, adorned with various gun/hunting brand stickers, you should be good.

    In 'murica? Yup. I have found that we do less and less formal events, and somehow what is appropriate dress is getting lost. I went to a black tie wedding this past summer in Williamsburg Va. Everyone over the age of thirty was in black tie dress and the ladies were in evening gowns. Those under the age of thirty, the guys took the "black tie" as meaning they wore a sport coat with a black tie, and the ladies wore "party" or cocktail dresses.

    We occasionally take our niece out to nice (not fancy) restaurants. Where jacket and tie is required. We have to remind her and her mom that just cause you spent $170 on a pair of cut up wholey jeans, that it still isnt appropriate attire. Her moms defense for allowing her to dress that way. "Well they are the most expensive things she has" . That doesnt make it appropriate. So my wife and i had to buy her a black dress and shoes.

    I would bet that for most Americans under the age of 30 the last formal event they went to was high school prom. And other than the wedding party, people are dressing less and less for weddings. I have seen people wear jeans and t-shirts to funerals.

    I live in Florida, where the daily wear is shorts and flip-flops, and people have really seem to lower the scale of what appropriate attire means.
