Custom Waxed Cloth Field Jackets and Vests

There is something about waxed cotton that feels so different than other weather-resistant fabrics. More authentic.  Less modern or plastic-y or tacky. Like pull-up leather, waxed cloth changes a bit each time you wear it.  It scratches and cracks and then the cracks begin to fade. It is sort of like having your history written in the fabric---the patina of your every motion.


The Future of American Sportswear

In the United States, we tend to call the best business and formal looks and fits “European” or “Italian” or “British,”–sometimes for good reason, and sometimes merely as a shorthand for saying that a look is “good” or “exciting” or somehow intangibly different from the basic relaxed New England look that we are used to […]


Custom 1920s Style Vests

We are famous for our 1920s style vests. The 1920s were a high point for waistcoats. The vests of the period contain all of the classic details that would become more codified in the 1930s. But in this earlier period there is still a wonderful flexibility and richness in style.


Custom Vests Handmade in Any Style

Waistcoats (or "vests" in good American English) haven't been this in style for decades. Perhaps the recession made us all a bit more serious, and many of the guys out there who hoped to be boys forever decided to grow up. Or perhaps we all just decided to think a bit more about history and a bit less about what was new, when future prospects seemed to dim.


Vegan Suits, Vests, and Frocks

For the growing number of vegans buying fine wedding attire and business suits can be difficult. It can be nearly impossible to find a suit that is made without the use of animal products. Nearly every part of a traditional suit is made from an animal product. The buttons are made from horn or shell, […]

Double-Breasted Notch-Collar Vest

This is one of the waistcoats that we designed to go with our early Victorian double-breasted tailcoat style. We wanted a vest that would cut away straight at the hem, exposing a few inches of the waistcoat fabric when the coat was closed. The result has proven popular both with our formal/wedding/tailcoat customers and those […]


Victorian Vest

This is a round-collar Victorian Vest that we developed awhile back. Like many of our styles, the vest has a very distinctive look that is historically informed and yet (worn with the right outfit) quite modern. The other pictures show the vest with a double-breasted suit that we tailored for a vaudevillian wedding on an […]
