Revolutionary War Waistcoat

A waistcoat was an everyday clothing item for a man during the American Revolution. This cut hits the wearer at the waist and the vents in the back and sides are both fashionable and comfortable.  These are available in red or navy wool with a cotton lining. They also have the added benefit of working pockets. 

SIZING:

Our sizes are in inches. To ensure the correct size, we suggest measuring around your chest and belly. If the belly measurement is larger than the chest, please contact us for a sizing recommendation. If you have any sizing questions, please contact us for assistance.

    Waistcoat Review

    Coat is high quality and the sizing is perfect. Also, don't worry about shipping delays. This stuff arrives quickly! I had to do a return on a couple of items (my own error when ordering, not S.H.'s), and it was extremely easy. These folks offer a great product at a good price and their customer service is top-notch. I highly recommend them and will be using them often.

    A waistcoat of the best quality

    The revolutionary war waistcoat is finely made; seams, buttons, lining, all are top notch. The fit is perfect. I highly recommend Sampson Historical.

    This is the second waistcoat I purchased from Samson. This particular coat was tight, but Samson was easy to work with in resolving the sizing issue. Replacement waistcoat fit is good, love the green color and is a great addition with my colonial wardrobe. Samson has quality products for colonial reenactment. Ralph L.

    Quality and Fit Good

    Well pleased with this item, except for the buttons, which are modern chromed domes. I will probably replace them.

    Great customer service! I originally ordered a waistcoat that was a bit too small. The exchange process was simple and efficient. I got the new one very quickly. I’m impressed with the quality of the materials!

    Rev War Waistcoat

    Measured too snug and waistcoat fit but was snug, contacted Samson Historical and explained what I had done, and that I would like to return the item for the next larger size. I followed their directions and then received an email with the return authorized number. Packaged up the waistcoat and returned it they received it in a couple of days and with in 2-3 days the correct size was in my mail box. Samson Historical made everything easy and smooth great job, I’ll be back for sure.

    A very nice product. I am very pleased and satisfied with the fit. Added to my colonial wardrobe, I can mix and match to different outfits. Samson people are customer focused to please the buyer. I plan on purchasing another waistcoat in wool or linen. or both.

    Revolutionary War Waistcoat Review

    It was great!! The original one I purchased was a little too snug. So, I sent it back and was able to switch it out for a size bigger. It is nicely made and hopefully will last for a long, long time.

    Get your measurements right

    I have worn a particular size sports coat for many years. Before ordering the waistcoat I had my chest and "belly" measured to be sure I was ordering the correct size. I must not have gotten the "belly" measurement correct and it was too tight to wear. After talking to Samson, I returned the waistcoat and ordered the next size up. No problem with the procedure for the return, it was cheerful and easy. My new waistcoat came in and fit very well. Looks great! But I know the measurement I had made was wrong. So get a good tailor to make your measurements, it will save time and money.

    ...for our regiment.

    I already have two waistcoats from Samson and I picked up four more on this order for our regiment. Good quality construction, materials and fit. The pockets securely hold a pocket watch and a flint wallet. Will no doubt be coming back for more as our regiment grows.
