Hi Matthew. I do not believe there is a kilt badge available for the surname of James. The James surname is generally accepted as being Welsh in origin, and whilst a commercial concern has produced a 'James of Wales' tartan - which in no way officially represents that surname - I have yet to come across a kilt badge for the James surname.

With regard to the kilt itself. Apart from the so-called 'James of Wales' tartan mentioned above, which personally speaking I think looks ugly in the extreme, all the James tartans in existence are special weave. In other words, the cloth has to be specially woven to order to make the kilt with, and thus it is more expensive than a generic tartan.

One commercial concern that I know of with experience of special weave is Houston Traditional Kiltmakers, who can be found here - http://www.kiltmakers.com/
