Live out your Downton Abbey or Brideshead fantasies in one of our dresswear waistcoats. Made exclusively for Budd, we carry white Marcella and ivory moire silk vests for white tie wear and black Marcella, satin, faille or moire silk for black tie events. Whilst a dress vest is essential under a tailcoat, it is optional with a dinner suit. We love the vintage feel that a waistcoat brings with it, as though a wistful nod to times gone by. We also like the way in which a waistcoat can tidy up your appearance. It is immediately flattering, creating clean, slimming lines, holding your shirt in place and your waistband covered.
