Live for Tweed is constantly expanding its collection of the highest quality vintage waistcoats, with fabrics ranging from moleskin, doeskin, wool, cotton, corduroy and tweed from popular brands like Harris Tweed, Brook Taverner, St Michaels, Dunn & Co, Donegal Tweed, Barbour, Joules, and Gurteen Esquire. A waistcoat is the perfect way to complete any fashionable look, and can be found in various designs, with some featuring two or four pockets, collars, and up to six buttons. This tradition dates back to the early 1900s with King Edward VII who was too large to button his waistcoat at the bottom, instead paying homage to the riding jackets that were replacing suits. Today, waistcoats can be worn both with and without jackets, as they symbolize a sense of style and smartness. At Live for Tweed, we stock both vintage and modern waistcoats, with new inventory coming in daily, and we're sure they will never go out of fashion.

Before buying any item from our Live for Tweed store, we highly suggest that you measure a similar garment you already own or wear for accurate results. All measurements for our items are based on when the garment is laid flat and relaxed, and may be an approximation. We may occasionally recommend a certain size to fit a small, medium or large size label, however, this could depend on the fit needed, and what type of undergarments are being worn, so be sure to check your measurements first. Additionally, one often forgotten element is the sleeve length, which may vary from size to size - make sure to take this into consideration as well.

Top Tip – Allow room for undergarments, on the occasion we do recommend a size to fit if it has been labelled as a small, medium or large. However, this can vary by individual dependant on undergarments worn and desired fit needed, so please check your measurements before purchasing. 
Top Tip – Sleeve length – This is often not checked and overlooked by customers and sleeve lengths can vary dependant on size.
