“This is an incredibly stylish outfit, which would look equally at home at a special event, drinks party or wedding,” says creative director Andrew Brookes. “The blues in the handmade Muted Gunn tartan trousers are offset by the blue Cheviot tweed jacket.

“I’ve teamed this with a Thomas Mason cotton shirt, double-breasted waistcoat and silk pocket square. This bespoke outfit is anchored with hybrid pieces designed to be versatile. It’s a smart investment.”

MacGregor and MacDuff

Arran Mist tartan outfit, from £120 to hire and £850 to buy

“The Arran Mist tartan has been our most popular yet, selling out two summers in a row!” exclaims Izzy Tetlow at MacGregor and MacDuff. “The hues of the tartan match the Arran Tweed jacket and waistcoat perfectly.

“You could pair the outfit with a khaki pigskin sporran and camel ghillie brogues to give it an edge, or a tartan tie, plaid and pocket watch for a contemporary twist – accessories are the ideal way to tailor an outfit to your own personal style.”

“Model Martin is wearing our subtly accented, handmade, eight-yard kilt in our very own Huntsman tartan [left],” explains Kyle Swadzba of Eight Yards. “We set out to create a desirable, modern-casual look with this outfit, co-ordinating muted country greens and earthy browns with a natural horn kilt pin and a handmade sporran, crafted using traditional techniques, a laser-etched Celtic design and broguing.”

“Timeless, versatile and seriously stylish, our navy herringbone Harris tweed kilt jacket [right] will quickly become the foundation of your Highland wardrobe,” highlights Kyle. “We have shown our passion for personalisation and colour with the retro skull lining.”

“A rustic embodiment of rural Scotland, the bronze triple-windowpane Shetland tweed provides the perfect complement to a country wedding,” considers Walker Slater’s Tom Layhe. “Combine with navy or burgundy tones, a white shirt and a pair of brown brogues for a bold contrast.”
