Product Details

The black satin waistcoat is worn with a black bow tie and dinner jacket. This traditional design has not changed since the 1930s. It has a rounded lapel, two welt pockets and 3 buttons covered with the same silk. The front is cut low so that the studs on your dress shirt can be displayed. It has a fixed yoke which allows the waistcoat to hang perfectly. The waistcoat is backless, which will ensure you are cool and comfortable throughout the evening. It holds itself snug to the body with a discreet rear waistband. The waistcoat is cut from silk satin which has an elegant, deep lustre rather than the tinny shine you get from acetate satin. It is very flattering to the fuller figure. A special feature is a hidden elastic tab which anchors the base of the waistcoat to the top of the trousers – this means that when you’re moving between dining table, bar and dance floor that your upper and lower halves won’t part company. All Budd dress waistcoats come in sizes M, L, XL, and XXL. Choosing the correct size depends on your height and body shape. The basic idea is that the middle button of the waistcoat should line up with the waistband of your trousers. So if you have long legs and a shorter body and your trouser waistband is worn high, you would choose a shorter waistcoat. If you are tall with long legs and a long body, you should opt for the longer version.

We advise that you contact the shop direct before you order your waistcoat – that way you’ll get expert advice on the correct size for you. It is customary to match the satin of the waistcoat with the same satin bow tie.
