Early 19th century Double Breasted Waistcoat/Vest

Early 19th century double breasted waistcoat/vest front view

A common vest during the very late 18th and early 19th century, our double breasted vests are reproduced in a common style and pattern of the period.  Our vests feature a double breasted closure front and standing collar.  As with all of our clothing, they feature hand sewn button holes and your choice of wools, jean cloths, denim, or linen blends.  The vests also feature a double tie back, which was common to the period.  A great value for the authenticity of this garment!


Sizing info: this garment is sized in chest size, similar to modern sport or suit coats. 19th century waistcoats or vests fit closely and much shorter than modern vests and many “reenactor” versions of vests. They fit this way because your trousers are supposed to come up very high in the waist, to at least your navel or belly button. Our garments are sized and cut period correct, so they’re going to fit like they should to the period. Please keep this in mind when choosing your size. If your trousers don’t come up as high as period trousers, you can request us to add a couple inches in the length of the body of the vest. Please do that in the customer comments.

    Fantastic quality. Excellent weight of wool. Could wish it was a tad longer & that I could have chosen an off-white for the backpanel rather than the black it came with, but still an excellent product!
