Vintage waistcoats are a quintessential addition to any tweed jacket, offering a touch of timeless elegance and style. At Live for Tweed, we've received numerous requests for vintage waistcoats, with some of the most popular options including Keepers Tweed, Moleskin, Doeskin, and Tweed Vintage Waistcoats.
These waistcoats come in a delightful array of designs. You'll find some with two or four pockets for added functionality, while others feature collars that lend an air of sophistication. The number of buttons on these waistcoats can vary, with some boasting 5 to 6 buttons, allowing you to choose the style that best complements your personal taste.
One interesting historical tidbit about waistcoats is the traditional way of wearing them, which involves leaving the last lower button unfastened. This practice harks back to the early 1900s and the time of King Edward VII. The King, known for his portly figure, unbuttoned the lower part of his waistcoat and jacket as a nod to the riding jacket that suits eventually replaced. This tradition adds a dash of heritage to the waistcoat, serving as a subtle connection to the past.
It's worth noting that waistcoats need not be reserved solely for pairing with jackets. In fact, many modern gentlemen choose to wear them on their own, as waistcoats are symbolic of both smartness and style. Whether you wear them as part of a suit ensemble or sport them as a standalone statement piece, vintage waistcoats from Live for Tweed are the embodiment of timeless fashion and sophistication.

These overcoats were typically designed to be worn over suits or thick undergarments, so it's important to consider what you'll wear underneath the coat. Vintage overcoats tend to size larger than your standard size, allowing for extra room and comfort.
Our collection features a wide array of vintage brands, each carrying its own legacy of quality and style. Among the esteemed names you'll find are Crombie, Harris Tweed, Dunn & Co, Austin Reed, St Michaels, Marks & Spencer, Burton, Pytchley, Lynton, Foxley, and a host of others.
