White Jacobean Jacobite Ghillie Kilt Shirt for Men with Expedite Shipping
A Word About Jacobite Shirt.
The Jacobite shirt is usually worn with the kilt to give it a casual look.
These are usually designed to look like a shirt that would have been worn during Scotland's Jacobite period (1685-1750). But in truth there is no evidence that these shirts truly represent what was being worn at that time.
They are simply a modern representation of an ancient shirt, which somebody decided to give a name to this period.
Having said that they do give the kilt a very stylish casual look, and they are very comfortable to wear.

Something More About Shirt…
They are longer than a conventional shirt, which is quite practical if you don't wear anything else under your kilt.
They are cut very generously not only in the body but the sleeves are also puffed, which gives freedom of movement.
These shirts are laced at the collar usually using a leather thong, one sign of a good quality shirt is that the holes for the thong should be stitched rather than riveted.
And quality horn or wooden buttons are used on the cuffs of the better quality shirts.
You can also find them being made without a collar, which they call a granddad collar and instead of a leather thong you then have buttons.
They are available in a wide range of colours to compliment the tartan of your kilt, but my personal choice would always be a cream colour, as that would contrast with almost any tartan.
Looking after your shirt would usually mean washing it on a gentle cycle, the cotton will have been hand shrunk before the shirt is made, so to ensure it doesn't shrink further in the wash, don't wash it on a hot cycle.
So all in all these shirts come in a wide range, and you should be able to find one to suit your taste if you want a comfortable casual look to go with your kilt.
