A man without a waistcoat was often viewed as “undressed” during the colonial period. The colonial waistcoat resembled a stylish vest and opening into an upside-down “V” past the stomach. All of America’s prominent voices of the 18th century donned waistcoats, from Benjamin Franklin to Thomas Paine to George Washington.
This colonial vest is short and fully lined, making it perfect for adding atop a shirt or under any jacket. This waistcoat also has a full back, allowing you to slip it on and fit comfortably.
All colonial men's gaberdine waistcoats come with detachable buttons that attach with hitch pin clips, this helps prolong the life of the vest during washes and allows for easy button customization.
Pair with our wide selection of colonial clothing parts and accessories to create your very own personalized colonial period outfit.
