Classic Waistcoats Size Guide


Our classic waistcoat designs V01 (without lapel) and V02 (with lapel) are tailored for a slim fit along the body with a good degree of waist suppression. The button adjusters in the back allow to further take in the waist by up to 2.5cm in the half measurement. The body length is standard for a three piece waistcoat. The fit is true to size, however, if you are normally in between sizes or are particularly tall, consider sizing up.

If you are unsure of the correct size to order please email our customer service at We are happy to help!
