I've had a hard time finding a formal waistcoat for some kind of reasonable price. Brooks Brothers makes one for $175, but would rather not spend that much on something I will rarely wear and is barely visible to begin with.

I found this one on ebay, from some company I have never heard of. they claim it's made in the USA, satin, and the styling looks correct.

only $40. I guess its designed to fit 37-48, which probably means it fits none of those sizes well. deal breaker?

he also has these white pique waistcoats sized in more reasonable S, M, L, and XL, though I'm not sure a white pique vest would work with my dinner suit with satin lapels.

anyways, thoughts?
