Available in brown or navy medium-weight wool, this sleeved waistcoat (often referred to as a jacket in the 18th century) is the perfect look for a colonial man. Inspired by garments from the 1770s, both colors have matching covered buttons down the front and on the functional pockets. A coat (a garment having cuffs, a collar, and pleated skirts as seen in period images) would be worn over top of this sleeved waistcoat or jacket, such as our Frock Coat.
This sleeved waistcoat is very nice. I don't like modern wool that much but there is a comfortable fitting lining. The size ordered was true to my chest size but there is enough extra room for the shirt sleeves and unsleeved waistcoat to fit underneath without being restrictive in comfort or movement.
I really like this option for me over heavier sleeved jackets or coats over a unsleeved waistcoat.
Do need bigger color selection though.
