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.
I liked the overall item, although I would have preferred an option to add additional stitching surrounding (a double-bound) the working for the button holes on the front of the waistcoat for better durability, especially with linen which can unravel easily.
Fit great, look great, lots cooler than the wool waistcoats I have.
Perfect fit. Excellent fabric quality.
