Bespoke Waistcoats

A three-piece suit is the ultimate in suiting sophistication. It is no surprise that their popularity has soared in recent times, in business environments, weddings, and social functions.

The addition of a designer waistcoat serves both aesthetic and practical purposes. Aesthetically, the waistcoat will transform a traditional two-piece suit into a very special garment: sleek, overtly masculine and immaculately turned out.

In a practical sense, a waistcoat will keep you warmer in the winter, and allow you to take off your jacket and still look smart in the summer. They are very flattering for the wearer, concealing any excess ‘padding’ around the stomach. They also lengthen the torso, which makes the wearer appear taller and more streamlined.

Finally, bespoke waistcoats are very versatile garments. You can mix and match them with other suits as a form of layering or you can wear them casually to smarten up jeans and a blazer.

Whatever environment you choose, whether it be business, wedding or occasional wear, the addition of a designer waistcoat will give you the confidence to know you are always perfectly dressed.
