Private Purchase Military Style Standing Collar Vest

(1 review) Write a Review
Standing collar military style vest

Our mid-19th century military style vest features a 9 button front with two functional pockets and hand sewn button holes.  The back is made from brown polished cotton and features an adjustment strap and buckle.  The perfect compliment for any military impression or for some civilian impressions of the Civil War era.  


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.
