Men's Retro Waistcoats

Men's Waistcoats

Look every inch the gentleman with our range of men’s waistcoats. Impeccably tailored and in a choice of retro styles, our waistcoats are truly dapper. The waistcoat is a retro classic and great way of expressing your personal style and confidence so don’t be afraid to experiment with pattern and colour.

How to wear a waistcoat

With A Morning Suit – grooms and groomsmen can bring a dash of style and colour to the traditional morning suit by pairing it with a contrasting waistcoat. Think about choosing a waistcoat in fabrics or colours that complement the theme of the wedding.

Retro Wedding Outfit – whether you’re going for a 1920s Peaky Blinders style or a 1950s vintage style wedding, you’ll want to include a retro waistcoat in your wedding outfit. For the Peaky Blinders look, choose a Donegal waistcoat by Gibson London with a matching suit. Of course, Tommy Shelby would accessorise his waistcoat with a penny collar shirt, cap and pocket watch.

Businesswear – make a break from traditional office-wear by adding a single-breasted waistcoat to your office suit. A clean-cut waistcoat with no collar looks super-professional under a matching suit for a 3-piece tailored look. Alternatively, waistcoats with lapels tend to have a higher neckline and look great with just a shirt and tie on hotter days in the office. For businesswear, choose a plain or Prince of Wales checked waistcoat and suit.

Eveningwear – take a leaf out of David Beckham’s book. Beckham has often been seen out on the town wearing a matching waistcoat and trousers (without the suit jacket), showing that elegant tailoring need not include a jacket. This contemporary version of the two-piece is smart without appearing uncomfortable and ‘buttoned-up’.

Smart/casual - Although generally regarded as formalwear, you can break the rules and style a waistcoat with casual clothing for a less put-together look. Choose good quality denim jeans and brogues with a textured men’s waistcoat and a crisp shirt. Dogtooth or tweed waistcoats are great for the casual look.
