New Year brings new outfits to Anderson Kilts
The dawning of a new year inevitably leads to looking to the future and making plans for the year ahead.
Here at Anderson Kilts, we have been very busy doing this recently. Whilst looking to the future, we have also been looking back at our history. This year marks our 165th year in business, so we have decided to celebrate with several new hire outfits.These new outfits give a nod to our history and roots but with a modern feel. So, let's take a look at them!
The 1854 Collection
This new collection celebrates 165 years of Andersons as a business.
Established in 1854, Andersons started as a drapery business in Eaglesfield. It has evolved over the years into a men's clothing business, before focusing solely on highlandwear since 2000.
The 1854 collection has a contemporary yet traditional feel to it.
The jacket and waistcoat are made from locally sourced Kirkton tweed from Lovat Mill, a Hawick based mill with a reputation for producing tweed of the highest quality.
The velvet trim on the jacket and waistcoat add a touch of luxury to the look.
The Muted Red Roxburgh tartan is a traditional design with the modern appeal of the muted colours to complement the tones in the jacket.
This outfit looks perfect when paired with the tan leather sporran and ghillie brogues, as well as the lovat green kilt hose.
Exclusive to Anderson Kilts- there are no similar outfits available to hire elsewhere!
The Queen of the South Collection
Queen of the South is a nickname for Dumfries, the home of our business.
We were involved with the inaugural Queen of the South tartan 20 years ago which was very popular with many, so the time seemed right to update the tartan using modern, darker tones whilst still retaining the original design.
These outfits are complemented perfectly by the navy crail jackets which are available for both boys and men to hire. These can be complemented further by hiring the QOS tartan ties and waistcoats.
The Queen of the South tartan is also available to buy in kilts, trews, waistcoats, ties, scarfs, caps, bow ties, and ladies’ skirts.
Again, Exclusive to Anderson Kilts!
Weathered MacRae Kilt
Brand new to hire for 2019 is the Weathered MacRae kilt for men.
Exclusive to Anderson Kilts, it pairs well with our range of black and grey jackets.
The colours reflect the trend for more natural, autumnal tones and offers an alternative to a lot of the darker tartans available in the hire market.
We hope you like our new collections and would love to hear your feedback.
