MacGregor and MacDuff

MacGregor and MacDuff have welcomed an exciting new check to their popular Mist range, inspired by the Isle of Harris. Known for its picturesque scenery and dramatic landscape, the Outer Hebridean island’s influence over the new tartan has resulted in a check comprising ocean blues, earthy greens, cool greys and a splash of burnt orange – we think it’s a real showstopper. These myriad colours mean it’s versatile when it comes to pairing with outerwear, however the Tarbert tweed jacket and waistcoat were specially designed to seamlessly complement the tartan.

Clan Kilts

It’s easy to see why the Antique Scotland Forever tartan (below, right) has become a popular choice for grooms at Clan Kilts in Stirling. Grey tartans are a safe but dapper option for those looking to don Highland attire while keeping things looking cool.

Light blue and charcoal flashes in this particular check mean darker jackets would pair nicely, but we think a light-grey number is nicely suited to a spring or summer wedding.

Having already designed the Glasgow Warriors tartan, Slanj Kilts’ newest release completes their set of plaids for Scottish Pro Rugby teams. Incorporating the bold orange and blue hues of the team’s jerseys, fans can now celebrate their love of the sport on their big day, with the tartan looking especially smart when worn with a navy jacket.
