Kilt and Formal Dress Hire

Special events often require special attire, and in Scotland this frequently means a kilt. If you haven't sought out your own set of traditional Highlandwear yet, or if you'd prefer to hire your formal attire, then Bowdens might just be the place for you. They offer everything you may need for your formal occasion - tuxedos, kilts, sporrans, hose, shoes and more.

Should you choose to find your outfit at Bowdens, you will not only receive top-quality product, but also advice that is founded on years of specialised experience. The attire they provide for purchase is made-to-measure so that you can be sure of a perfect fit.

Bowdens has been well-established in Edinburgh for almost 100 years, and has been providing quality formalwear from the same shop in Leith since 1916.
