Marchbrae Ghillie Shirt
A Ghillie shirt, also known as Jacobean or Jacobite, is an informal traditional shirt usually worn with a kilt. The term Ghillie refers to the criss-crossed lacing style as also seen on the Ghillie Brogue. Jacobite shirts are considered to be more casual than their shirt and waist-coat counterparts that are normally seen with the kilt. The Jacobite shirt existed before the kilt, with there being no documentation for kilts until 1575.
Ghillie shirts are traditionally used for dances or ceilidhs as they are light and spacious to allow for air to pass through. They do not need to be worn with any sort of tie. The Irish version of the Ghillie shirt is the Grandfather shirt. A casual Jacobite shirt for that less formal occasion. Our Jacobite shirts are all sourced in Scotland and are renowned for style, finishing as well as the generous sizing.
