The Daily Mail's Live Magazine featured 7 of the best Men's Waistcoats on Sunday and our double breasted waistcoat was featured in the MacLean Hunting Ancient tartan alongside pinstripes from Paul Costelloe and a natty tweed by HE from Mango. August is a month full of weddings and the right waistcoat is crucial, particularly if the venue gets hot and you want to take your jacket off and still look the part. The current trend for Preppy style has brought the waistcoat back into fashion with so many options to customise if you use a really good tailor. Add a different lining, use a contrast colour to stitch the buttonholes, have satin or fabric covered buttons instead of plain colours or choose an extra pocket...the options are endless. This is the joy of made to measure instead of off the peg garments, you can really individualise what at first thought is a simple purchase. Of course our specialism is tartan and depending which tartan you choose this can be a bold statement in itself but a co-ordinating or contrasting back or lining can make a real difference to the look. One of our groom's recently had his waistcoat back in red and the rest of the wedding party had navy blue...just to make sure everyone knew whose big day it was! As the days grow shorter and we dare to talk of Autumn/Winter tweed comes to the fore again and we have some fabulous tweeds woven here in the Scottish Borders for you to choose from. Whatever fabric, colour or style you choose let us help you make it extra special and ask about the little details we can add to make it truly unique.
