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. This white is slightly off-white for a natural linen feel. 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.
Very nice very light. I use while doing tours of the freedom trail in Boston and very comfortable on hot days. If have complaint I have a long torso so it's a bit short but not too.
I needed something light to conduct summer tours in un-airconditioned buildings and this was the perfect thing. Well made and well priced. thanks.
Absolutely preferred over the wool vest.
