    I seem to recall seeing him, quite often, wear a kilt to “normal “ parliamentary debates.

    But they've taken that first big step and worn the kilt in public. So over time their style will evolve. Perhaps they will even join the Rabble.

    in the top photo the buttons on the sleeves show it to be a Braemare style which is day and office wear I believe. Devil in the details

    The cuffs are the style often called braemar by highlandwear outfitters but the jacket is in the prince-charlie cut, has silver buttons, satin-faced lapels, and is of finely woven black fabric, all of which mark it as more appropriate for evening wear.

    While Argyll cuffs are the most traditional “cuff treatment”, the cuffs alone do not determine the formality or purpose of a jacket. The cut and fabric as a whole determine that.

    Edit:
    Also PC jackets almost always have the “Braemar” cuffs.
