Armhole on a waistcoat?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
What is the guideline on the armhole of a bespoke waistcoat? Does it need to be as high as the jacket's?

Thanks!

No one correct answer. Its arbitrary somewhat and dependent on the style of vest or the cutter/fitter's point of view. The height would relate more to the armhole of your shirt than the jacket.

I asked for high armholes on my mtm shirt. If the chest feels fine but the armhole still digs into my armpit, does that mean I need to have the armhole lowered?

If my shirt has high armhole, how close should the armhole on a fitted waistcoat be relative to the shirt? 1 or 2 cm allowance? Also, has any one put a "slit" on the side of a waistcoat on the lower part of the armhole?

How close is your shirt's armhole to your armpit? I think the shirtmaker usually leave some allowance?

The question somewhat answers itself. If any aspect of bespoke is uncomfortable it requires changing. You should be able to forget what you are wearing.
