Our Dress Wool vests have a soft hand and exceptional detailing that make them stand out in a crowd. Features a six-button front with a round lapel, two waist pockets and two breast pockets. This vest was the fashion statement of the 1880s.
This vest is fully-lined and comes in a variety of solids, checks, stripes, and plaid dress wool suiting. Very 19th century period-correct. The back panel and lining of each vest are made of fine cotton and utilize a period-correct adjustment belt and buckle to achieve a perfectly-fitted look.
Comes standard with a Black back and lining ~ but if you would rather have your back panel and lining in Brown, Tan, or Gray, please include a note to us on your order form stating your back and lining color preference (e.g. "Gray Back and Lining"). There is no extra charge to change your back panel and lining color.
For an extra special look, an optional trim is available that follows the lapel down the front and to the lining on both sides; pocket edges are also detailed in trim. Your trim (or piping) choices are Black, Navy, Brown, Tan, or Gray (please see the last photo on this page for a look at the actual trim colors). A nominal fee is charged for this attractive trim option. If you would like trim added to your vest, please select the "With Trim" option below and, please include a note to us on your order form stating your trim color preference (e.g. "Gray Trim").
