They first appeared at the court of Charles II in the 1660’s and have evolved quite a bit since then. While it’s traditionally worn with a jacket and trousers to form a three-piece suit, it can also been worn more casually with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt or dress shirt. Regardless of how it’s worn, waistcoats represent class, sophistication, and a true sense of style and have always been a staple in any man’s wardrobe.

Bespoke vs. Off-the-Rack
Regardless of the fact that a waistcoat is most often worn underneath a suit jacket, the fit of the waistcoat is still extremely important: too loose or bulky and the jacket will fit badly, too tight and it will be uncomfortable to wear and may potentially risk causing ugly bulges. Even people with quite a regular body type can have difficulty finding a waistcoat that makes them look good and that they feel truly comfortable wearing. We’ll take the time to measure you – from chest to waist to shoulders – to ensure that the waistcoat we make for you is just right.

What Our Customers Say
Nelson Nogueira
Recommended by a friend, I visited Editsuits for a wedding suit and shirt. Two of the staff I interacted with were super friendly and helpful, the measuring took an hour and the suit actually arrived a few days earlier than expected. Everything was spot on so I didn't need to have it altered. Given that I paid the same as similar off the peg suits would have cost me (and I did shop around) for a tailored fit I could not recommend them enough.
Callum Williams
I've had a few made to measure suits and the one's I have received from Edit are by far the best! I received my suit in around 3 weeks of ordering and it was an excellent fit (a lot better than ones I have had made elsewhere that were significantly more expensive). The friendly service was outstanding throughout the process and the quality of the product was exceptional. I would highly recommend to anyone out there looking for a great suit.
Iulian Diaconu
Excellent tailoring. I bought two suits from them and I`m very happy with the tailoring and the quality of the materials. Highly recommended.
