We recognise that such a significant purchase for your wedding, birthday or just “I’ve always wanted to do this” occasion, is an important decision. With access to many hundreds of tartans from Scotland’s leading mills, you can be sure that we will find the clan or generic tartan you want, in the right weight and we’ll custom hand-craft your kilt or ladies’ kilted skirt to measure.
Our kilts come with three buckles and top grade leather straps, canvas lining, two belt loops, knife pleating and triple fringing on the front apron. And years of experience in the making.
Ladies’ kilted skirts are hand-made in any length, generally in a lighter weight tartan, with fewer pleats, a double front apron, strap, buckle and fringing. Perfect for Scottish events or for those who simply want to enjoy the experience of wearing one of the almost countless attractive tartans available. All of our kilted skirts are made to measure in the tartan of your choice.
HIGHLAND and SCOTTISH COUNTRY DANCERS
Many highland dancers, young and not-so-young, trust us with crafting exceptional quality kilts that they will be able to use for years to come.
The Scottish Country Dancing community finds Staghorn a very useful source of traditional and not-so-traditional kilts, tartan kilted skirts and accessories for their passion.
The secret lies in the construction of the garment, the materials used and the skill (with more than a little magic) in our master tailor’s hands.
The cloth we use – tweeds, wool blends and jacketing – is almost invariably from Scotland or Ireland, but the fusings, chest canvas and linings are the best we can buy here in South Africa. All our buttons are non-tarnish nickel plated alloy, leather covered or replica stag horn.
Step out in style with tailored tartan or tweed jackets and waistcoat sets for men and women. We have access to hundreds of fine, 100% pure new wool tartans.
Always smart and a little more comfortable and casual than with a jacket, our master tailor will create waistcoats using only the finest textiles and finishes.
Add a flash of colour under a jacket or as a bold statement on its own. You don’t have to be a dyed-in-the-wool clansman to sport the tartan.
We offer a range of bespoke tartan cummerbunds that add an elegant, tartan touch – ideal for the gentleman who wants a slightly different style of formal evening wear.
There’s a world of difference between the two garments, but we have years of experience in bespoke tailoring of both styles from a vast array of tartans and tweeds. There has even been the occasional pair of our ‘plus fours’ in tartan found on golf links far from our tailor shop at the southern tip of Africa.
Tartan trousers can be can be worn with a variety of informal and semiformal Highland outfits or just as another pair of trousers.
Our own brand of ghillie shirts are traditional in pattern but with a local touch for added style and practicality. We have chosen a range of fine unbleached and bleached soft fold cottons, which are cut from tailored patterns, with deep yoked shoulders, fusing-reinforced collar, cuffs and yoke. They also have novel tabs to secure the cotton twist draw string at the neck and we make them extra-long for comfort.
