The Perfect Waistcoat
Waistcoats, also called vests, are sleeveless upper body garments that are traditionally worn over a dress shirt. Either worn on its own or as part of a three-piece suit, a well-designed waistcoat is a stylish addition to any man’s wardrobe.
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.
Below you can find a small selection of waistcoats from our collection. With thousands of fabrics and countless customisation options available to choose from, we can create a waistcoat for you that is uniquely yours!

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.
