A waistcoat is a close-fitting waist-length garment, typically having no sleeves or collar and buttoning down the front, originally worn by men over a shirt and under a jacket.
Nowadays also the women’s waistcoat (or vest) becomes en vogue. One can wear it over a shirt or T-shirt, with or without a jacket. Just as the jacket, it is customary to leave the lowest button open.
The waistcoat can be an eye-catching part of your clothing. But it can be also very practical for those days that it is to warm for a jacket but to cold for a blouse only.
Our waistcoat is produced in two basic models. These are the waistcoat with a V-shaped neck opening (equipped with lapels if desired) and the one with a round neck opening.
The back of the waistcoat is normally completed with lining cloth (as is customary), but can also be made of the same fabric as the front. When you choose a lining of Business Punks or Fancy Interlinings you can be assured to stand out of the crowd.
Whatever you choose, you will make a striking appearance.
