scottish wedding outfits

Slater Menswear was started in Glasgow in the 1970’s and although we have the perfect men’s attire for every occasion, no matter what your style, highland wear is at the heart of our business and has been for decades.

Our collection of highland attire to rent and buy has something to suit both traditional and more modern Scottish celebrations and won’t break the bank either.

Our 2018 collection of highland wear is one of the biggest ranges we’ve ever had available, so we’re going to be giving you a tour around this year’s collection and giving you our top tips on how to tie the knot in true Scottish style.


Our selection of kilts is one of the most extensive available on the high street and truly has something to suit every wedding theme.

Whether you want to stick to your traditional family tartan or mix things up and sport a more modern design down the aisle, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for at Slater Menswear.

We believe there are lots of reasons why renting a kilt is best, which is why our tartans are all hire only, meaning you can wear the kilt of your dreams without blowing your budget buying one.

Highland Jackets

An essential part of any highland outfit is the jacket, so you need to be sure you’ve got the perfect one for you.

Our highland jackets are also available to hire for reasonable prices and come in two different styles, both with their own unique charm and appeal.

The Prince Charlie style jacket is all about the metal detailing that is a real feature of the design while the Argyll jacket is a more understated style that lets the smart shape of the jacket do the talking.

Most of our highland jackets also have matching waistcoats available to make your traditional Scottish outfit even more special and give you a super formal look for the big day.

Want your whole party to match? Our kilts and jackets are also available in children’s sizes, so your whole grooms’ party can be coordinated no matter what their age.

Tartan Trews

If a kilt isn’t the right choice for you but you still want an authentic highland look for your wedding day, tartan trews could be the answer for you.

A selection of both modern and traditional trews are available for hire in the Slater Menswear formal hire department. Our trews come in popular fabrics including Modern Robertson, Modern Douglas and Spirit of Bannockburn, giving you plenty of options to choose a style that suits you.

A comfortable but formal fit and the perfect match to one of our jackets, our trews are available as part of both standard and prestige packages to help you create the ultimate highland outfit for your big day.

Ghillie Shirts

If you want to have all the components of a traditional highland outfit for when you head down the aisle then a ghillie shirt is an important item.

These traditional highland shirts have their own unique style and are an essential part of any authentic Scottish wedding attire. A loose and comfortable fit with a lace detail at the neck, we have both black and white ghillie shirts available which means we have the perfect shirt to go with every colour kilt and jacket.


The sporran you sport on your big day is a statement part of your overall outfit, so choosing the right one to match your attire is important.

Our selection of natural seal skin sporrans and sporran chains has something to suit every groom and work with every outfit we have available for hire in our highland wear department.

Ghillie Brogues

Wedding shoes are an essential part of your attire for the big day no matter what your style but when you’re sporting traditional highland attire down the aisle, you need to have the shoes to match.

Ghillie brogues are a distinctive style shoe that are designed specifically for wear with kilts. We’re pleased to stock intricately detailed ghillie brogues from Thistle which are both comfortable and stylish for the occasion.

Once you’ve found the perfect shoes for your highland wedding attire, you need the socks to match and our selection of authentic kilt socks has the perfect pair for every groom.

All designed to be comfortable and practical, we also have a selection of colours and designs, so you can find the kilt socks that work perfectly with your Scottish wedding outfit.


As with any wedding outfit, there are so many accessories you can add to complete the look and we’ve got a whole host of different authentic and modern accessories to help you finish off your highland attire.

Every groom needs a kilt pin and sgian dubhs as part of his look but flashes and hip flasks are also great additions to your outfit.
