Need a good waistcoat/vest (w/o spending $$$$$)

Hi all,

I've got a nice TM Lewin navy blue suit (Newmarket model) that sees regular use. It's not top of the line, but it's a step up from what I used to have so I'm happy enough for now. Now, I like 3-piece suits, and I've found that TM Lewin makes a matching waistcoat for my suit - but the sticker price is a bit steep IMO (£80), considering what I'm getting (Pakeman only charges £10 more).

So my question is, does anyone know where I can get a decent 100% wool, navy herringbone waistcoat for less, or am I going to have to bite the bullet on this one?

Thanks,

Geoff

Either get the one that matches exactly, or get a contrasting waistcoat, do not get one that almost matches...
