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 email@example.com. We are happy to help!
All measurements are flat on garment and in centimeters:
|IT 44 (XS)||IT 46 (S)||IT 48 (M)||IT 50 (L)||IT 52 (XL)||IT 54 (XXL)||IT 56 (3XL)||IT 58 (4XL)|
This Taupe Donegal Tweed Wool Classic Waistcoat is hand crafted by a skilled sarta in our family workshop in Como. The fabric for this waistcoat is sourced from Magee in Donegal, Ireland. This warm and sturdy plain weave fabric has a weight of 410gm and combines a dark brown weft and a lighter taupe beige warp loaded with the characteristic colourful flecks of the Donegal tweed. This waistcoat features a small notched lapel, two welt pockets and double buttoned back adjusters. The weight, texture and feel of the fabric make this waistcoat a great option both as a layering piece in the colder months or as outer layer in the mid-seasons. The neutral taupe colour allows for easy pairing with a multitude of autumnal hues.
