A Heritage Costumes Exclusive.
Throughout history, boys’ attire mimicked that of their older counterparts — and such was the case in the fancy fabrics and outfits of the Victorian era. The men of the mid-1800s wore layers upon layers of formal suiting, topping linen or cotton shirts with coats, suit jackets, and the most important of all, the waistcoat. More commonly known as a vest, the waistcoat is a sleeveless formalwear garment worn over a traditional dress shirt and tie. A coat or jacket in a coordinating color is then worn over the vest itself. Victorian boys followed in the footsteps of their fathers and older brothers, wearing imitation waistcoats or vests as part of their suits. For children, the vests of the 1800s were made in every possible type of fabric, from fine options like brocade and cashmere to more affordable choices such as cotton.
An exclusive piece in our Heritage Costumes collection of historical clothing, this Victorian era brocade vest is authentic to the formal and polished boys’ attire of 19th century America. Your Victorian vest front is crafted out of polyester and arrives with a matching collar, an attached shirt dickey featuring a wing collar, and a black ribbon tie. This piece is backless, making it easy for a child to slip on and secure with the attached adjustable back ties. Pair this Victorian look with our wide selection of clothing pieces, accessories, and added details from the 1800s to create your very own personalized period costume.
This high-quality costume can be used for Victorian-themed school events, a history lesson, or simply a fun day of experiencing life as a 19th century boy. Made with pride and care right in the United States, this brocade Victorian vest is built to last.
