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.
This has become my favorite waist coat for the summer months. I had a reenactment this weekend and the first day in the battle field was 92°. It was bearable, rather than wearing wool. The 2nd day was 87°, naturally the same applied. I am a very pleased customer. Thanks Samson
