    I saw an Argyll in a local thrift shop that might fit you. I will go investigate sometime this weekend.

    I was lurking about Ebay, yesterday. If memory is correct, there were a couple of Argylles, size 46. Going for good prices. Some would call cheap.

    Sorry this has taken a while, medical appointments and such have prevented me from getting to the shop, however I am going down there today.

    Good work McMurdo!

    Happily for the OP size 46 isn't all that rare, with vintage tweed kilt jackets on Ebay.

    Here's one super cheap, looks like charcoal grey. I would make sure that it's 46UK, because French sizes run completely differently.

    Here's a 46 black Argyll jacket well under $100 including shipping.

    I wish it was that easy for me! I need 50R and one comes up every couple years. (If you're 38 or 40 one comes up every five minutes...just kidding.)

    If the jacket option doesn't work waistcoats are far easier because you don't need kilt-specific ones. The last time I was in a shopping mall I saw several tweed-ish waistcoats that would be perfect for kiltwearing at low prices ($30 to $50).
