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.

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.

Based in both London and Singapore, we have the expertise and tools to make your waistcoat just as special as the jacket you wear over it. We have capable staff who will take the time to learn about your tastes and requirements, in order to make something specifically for you.

What Our Customers Say
Zeeshan Arshed
I first found out about Edit Suits from the Time Out feature and booked a measurement appointment. The staff were incredibly helpful for someone who has not had a custom suit made before and walked me through every option and detail to make sure everything was to my preference. The suit was completed roughly 3 weeks after measurement as described and I arranged a fitting appointment to try on the suit leading to minor adjustments being required for the perfect fit. The staff were very flexible and the online support was helpful in arranging an additional item to my original order. All in all I had an entire suit (inc. shirt and waistcoat) within 4-5 weeks and all subsequent amendments completed. Edit Suits now has my measurements on record so I will be sure to source all my future suit needs from them in the future.

This was the first time I had a suit made to measure, I was very impressed with the service of the editsuits, the quality of materials in the suit I ordered was fantastic. The representative that came to my property was very helpful, polite and accommodating and took all my measurements in the first visit. The suit took about 4/5 weeks to me made and was delivered to my office once completed. I had to make a small adjustment to the trousers and they were very happy to make the amendments free of charge. I will definitely order my next suit through editsuits and now that they have my measurements they do not have to measure me again. I will definitely recommend this company to my colleagues.

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.
