Waistcoat/vest - alpaca wool, gray

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
As someone expressed interest in this recently, I have come to the unfortunate realisation that I don't know when I will get the chance to wear this. So it is up for grabs.

Custom made by Ravi's Tailors. I am between a 38R and 40R in suits.

From middle to bottom is approximately 23 1/2 inches.

Across shoulders it is 14 inches

Across bottom it is 19 1/4 inches

Order info:
· Fabric: Medium Weight Alpaca Wool Blend (#128)
· Color: Light Grey (ca)
· Requests: Lining: Camel
· Accessories: Authentic Hand-stiched Lapels and Pockets
Italian Designer Silk Lining

$57 (includes shipping in Continental USA)

This one shows the closest colour approximation



Lining is sort of a shade of gold/camel...silk

Great looking vest, just slightly too big for me or else it would be mine.

Yeah, every time I think about wearing it it is either too hot or ends up too contrived. Wish I had more opportunities to wear it...

I might be interested, but I'm unsure on how a vest is supposed to fit, even after reading the current waistcoat thread over in Men's Clothing. I stand about 6 ft 2 in - would this vest be too short for me or just right?

Not sure to be honest. I am about 5' 10" and it fits me well length-wise.

Thank you.

Regarding the buttonholes, the back looks irregular so it is possible that they were hand finished, I am not certain.
It is 20 inches across.

It looks to be a nice vest. I was the one asking - I was toying with the idea of wearing a stroller outfit to a friends wedding. As an aside, I was looking on ebay for vests, and you wouldn't believe the number of leather vests being modelled by muscular Tshirted men
