A waistcoat is the perfect way to take your tailoring to the next level. Whether it's to add to your suit or wear over a shirt, a waistcoat provides a sophisticated, smart and formal look. Our extensive range of men's waistcoats features an array of colours, styles and fits and you can visit our full range of suits here to create your very own three piece.
The waistcoat was introduced in 1660 by King Charles II of England. Historically referred to as a vest, the term 'waistcoat' derived from the fact that the garment was cut at the waist, whereas formal coats at that time were much longer than they are now.
These days, the waistcoat is a welcome addition to traditional tailoring, by turning your suit into a three piece, you create a much more formal and stylish outfit. Adding a waistcoat to your attire is also a great choice for events taking place in the warmer months, as it allows a gentleman to remove his jacket and still maintain a certain level of formality.
Waistcoats come in an array of styles for a multitude of occasions. Whether it’s a coloured dupion for a formal wedding, black horseshoe for a black-tie event, tweed double breasted for a casual summer soiree or a navy single breasted for that important business meeting, our impressive selection will have the perfect waistcoat for you. Complete your waistcoat with a crisp new shirt and add the finishing touch with one of our bow ties for a true gentlemans attire.
Our extensive collection of waistcoats is one of the best you will find anywhere else, whether on the high street or the web, and our combination of high quality tailoring and incredibly competitive pricing makes us hard to beat.
