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

    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.

    nice waistcoat

    Nicely made. The wool is fairly thick, good for cool/cold weather. It fits snugly, as 18th century waistcoats should.

    Revolutionary War Waistcoat

    I recently ordered a waistcoat from Samson Historical's online store. The order arrived in three days, in good condition. Unfortunately, it was a bit too small, so I used the online service to request replacement and sent the item back. The replacement waistcoat arrived in five days, and was exactly what I needed. The waistcoat is perfect and the purchase and replacement process was far easier and faster than I expected. Kudos! I'll be back!
