    Question about the Fit of the kilt cut jacket

    All mighty Wizard, I have a question regarding your kilt cut jackets. How are the sleeves tailored? Based on the tweed jacket I own, the sleeves are about a half inch wider at the cuff than my regular contemporary slim fit suit jacket. Are your sleeves cut like a traditional tweed jacket or slimmer with a more contemporary look? Thank you for the info!

    The cut of the entire jacket is much more like that found on N. American suit coats.

    The sleeve at the cuff is slightly narrower than a typical Argyle cuff.

    There is a bit more room across the back and under the arms.

    But basically, other than my off-the-rack jackets, you can specify almost every aspect of this jacket. I can have them totally custom made if you prefer.

    I wear the kilt because:
    Swish + Swagger = Swoon.

    Thank you Steve. It's good to know you offer full bespoke jackets. Unfortunately for me, with a 42 inch chest and 34 inch waist, bespoke option is the only one that works for me. Being fit doesn't always pay off!

    I'm pleased to read that as I really appreciate how good those jackets look but I would prefer a more slim fitting jacket instead of the N. American cut.

    Thanks,
