Blue Linen 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 linen/cotton (80/20) waistcoats are cool in the summer and fashionable all year round. They also have the added benefit of working pockets. 


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

    Nice Fit & Good Looks

    The fit is very good, and the linen cloth is thin and breathable. I like the color, and I like the length of the hemline which covers the waistline of my breeches. And the pockets are spacious (very deep) for this style. Great value!

    Quality Waistcoat

    I am very pleased with the quality of the waistcoat, and the good service from Samson. The lightweight linen is great for Texas. A word of caution on sizing...I wear a size 54 vest and coat when I buy at the Big and Tall shop, but I had to order a size 60 in the vest to get a correct fit. But the Samson folks were great in handling a return and shipment of the correct size.
