Early 19th Century Waistcoat/Vest

(4 reviews) Write a Review
Front view of 1812 era vest

Our late 18th/early 19th century men's waistcoat (vest) fits the bill for your needs up to approximately the 1830s.  Our vest features two exterior pockets and a tie back, is lined with polished cotton (other linings available upon request) and features hand sewn button holes.  These features, as well as the overall quality construction, set this vest apart from the competition available from other sources.  Our vest is also available with a variety of buttons such as cloth covered, wooden, and brass coin buttons.  We have also made these available in a variety of wool and linen fabric choices.  A great value for an authentically cut and constructed vest!

PLEASE NOTE - this garment is patterned from originals, and is not a long (in the body) vest that will fit over improperly or inaccurately made trousers.  We cannot take returns for garments that fit historically accurately but do not fit like clothing that was inaccurately made, but you might "like" the fit of.  We are not trying to be difficult, but our garments are made to fit in a historically accurate manner, not the manner of some companies who make historically "inspired" clothing that fits more like modern clothing.  Thank you for your understanding.


Note - If your size is not in stock at the time of order, a wait of 4-6 weeks may be necessary.

    The quality and construction of this waistcoat exceded my expectations. This is a carefully and faithfully made garment that is also quite sturdy. I highly reccomend and will surely procure another or such garment here again.

    Best Vest for Me

    I bought this vest to complement my reenactment clothing for the Texas Revolution. The fit is period correct, and comfortable. The light green wool goes well with my period shirt and trousers. The item came quickly. I plan to purchase more items from this company.
