Fabric and Colour Options

There is a range of fabric and colour options when selecting a waistcoat. From wool blends to cotton blends, each fabric offers a unique texture and finish to suit your style. Waistcoat colours range from traditional neutrals like beiges, blacks and greys to bold hues, allowing you to effortlessly elevate your ensemble with a touch of sophistication and personality. Whether you prefer a timeless plain blue waistcoat or a daring burgundy check waistcoat option, the possibilities are endless when it comes to crafting a distinguished look that reflects your individual taste.

Slim, regular, relaxed or tailored fit?

It's important to consider the fit you're looking for when buying a waistcoat. If matching your waistcoat to the rest of a suit then going with the same fit style as the suit for your waistcoat is a safe bet. It's always best to try on different fits to see which style works best for your body and see what desired look you're after. Slim and tailored fits will offer a more streamlined silhouette, whereas regular and relaxed fit will offer a looser style if that is what you prefer.

Suit Waistcoats

If you have an event coming up in the diary and are looking for formal attire that will make a statement then a suit is the perfect option. More often than not, a suit will come with a matching suit waistcoat which will match the fabric and colour of the suit jacket and trousers. If you feel like adding a unique touch to your outfit you could opt for a waistcoat in a different colour or print that still compliments the overall look but adds some contrast. Maybe try a light grey waistcoat with a blue suit or a beige waistcoat with a brown check suit.

Casual Waistcoat Outfits

Men's waistcoats aren't exclusively formal wear either. When styled correctly a waistcoat could work casually too. Looking for an outfit for your next date night? Pair a waistcoat with your favourite pair of jeans or chinos, a shirt and some smarter trainers or loafers for the perfect smart casual look.

Black, Blue, Beige & Grey Waistcoats

Some colours work better for different events. If going to a black tie event, a funeral or just looking to take your black suit to the next level then a black waistcoat could be just the option. Maybe you're looking for a waistcoat for the next wedding in your calendar. A navy blue waistcoat is a great choice, or if it's a summer wedding you could opt for a beige waistcoat in a linen blend. If you want to look smart for work then a light or dark grey waistcoat will give you the professional style you're after.
