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.

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
James Pratt
I bought my first made to measure suit at the Liverpool Street showroom in August this year, and it did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and most importantly, patient. The range of fabrics colours and options for the suit were vast, and you can really make it your own - down to your initials sewn onto the inside of the jacket at no extra cost! The suit took around 3 weeks to be made, and when then a further week to adjust - not a lot needed doing. Now the suit fits perfect, and looks very special, not bad for £467. I'll be buying another when the time comes.
Alexandre / Raphaëlle Macaire
Very good experience: the staff is helpful, they can come to your place to take all the measures, emails are answered promptly and they give you very relevant advice on the design of your suit. I ordered a first suit 5 months ago and the quality of the fabric turns out to be quite good. On that basis, I have just ordered a second suit and hope it will be as good.
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.
