Great as a standalone summer weight vest, or paired with our summer linen frock coat, this vest is patterned directly from a linen summer vest that is in the collection of the Merchant Tailor Museum. This vest is a faithful reproduction of that vest in every aspect. Made of 100% finely woven linen, with exterior pockets and belted back. Features shell buttons and finely sewn handsewn button holes. A great addition to any mid-19th century impression!
