Waistcoats (Vests) were a HUGE part of the business and elegant fashion during the mid and early XX century. Luckily they are still widely popular in today’s age, so a vintage-looking model such as the Ruth&Boaz; Wool Herringbone won’t go out of tune.
This waistcoat not only looks classic but it feels due to its wool (front) and polyester (back) fabric. It is available in black, brown, blue, and a wide range of gray tonalities. The sizes range from X-Small up to 4X-Large (Look at the product description for full measurements).

Based on the quality of the product, the price range is very good.
On the downside, fitting is a common problem among these models; it possible you may have to send it back and try it again for proper fit.
Maintenance and delicacy (especially on the polyester side) are also details to keep in mind when purchasing.

The Vinci Classic fit is a very nice tuxedo coming in at a reasonable price. It has an elegant structure with a notch lapel and split tails on the back. It also comes with padded shoulders, and a white vest and wool pants as complement.
The fabric of the suit is very nice, having a soft fabric and providing comfort when wearing it. The lack of flexibility on the available sizes means your body type may not adjust perfectly, thus you may require to make some minor adjustments to it.
It also comes in black (as shown in the picture) as well as an all-white version, which looks very dazzling but requires exceptional care. The two tails on the back greatly increase the visual appeal of the outfit.
Overall a nice luxury option that will stand out without the need to spend thousands of dollars.
ASOS skinny suit jacket in brown wool blend
Brand/Type: ASOS /Single Jacket

Sizes (Chest): From 32 up to 46 inches
This ASOS skinny suit jacket comes on its own and both the waistcoat and the pants have to be purchased separately ($56 and $64 respectively – $234 in total).
The windowpane check print in the whole 3 piece outfit has a vintage vibe to it along with the modern design and fabric.
The jacket adjusts tightly to the body and comes with notch lapels and front pockets. The waistcoat has 4 buttons and a contrast black back that adjusts firmly with a clinch. The pants are skinny fit and have a regular cut on the waist.
The whole piece is both comfortable and elegant with the fabric being more resistant than other types of models. The downside is that the only available colour is brown.
Be sure to check out ASOS website, they have a nice catalogue of modern clothing with vintage traits. Quality is top-notch and the variety of styles is also really good.
Green Heritage Check Tailored Fit Suit (UK only)
Brand/Type: Racing Green /Single Jacket
Price: £120.00 (Now on offer – £59.00)
Place to buy: Debenhams
Materials: 35% wool, 25% cotton, 20% polyester, 15% acrylic, 5% other, Lining is 100% polyester
Sizes (Chest): From 34 up to 58 inches – Sizes Short, Regular, Long for every 2 inches
Whne looking for vintage models you sometime come across pieces like the Racing Green Suit. Apologies to all non-British people but this item only delivers to the UK 🙁
Despite this, we encourage you to look at some other options on the Debenhams website, they have quite a few vintage options that may interest you.
So onto the suit…
This Racing Green Jacket comes on its own. The waistcoat and pants are available but have to be purchased separately (also with a discount! – £25 each).
The full 3 piece suit just radiates pure classic British gentleman vibes. The jacket is tailored fit (so is the waistcoat) and comes with a notch lapel, 2 buttons, and overall resistant fabric and elegant cuts. The waistcoat has a dark blue back and the pants are skinny and have a high cut.
Right now it comes at a bargain price. The quality and elegance of this suit are usually found at double the price.
The downsides are that it only comes in one colour and stock is limited.
I recommend getting at least one of the upper body pieces and the pants or the full suit, this is because, on their own, the single pieces lose that vintage British aura they possess.
