In Victorian times, gentlemen were not considered properly dressed without a jacket, vest (or waistcoat), and tie. Indeed, even smart Victorian women donned fitted vests for stret wear, with walking skirts and long jackets. Today, the vest is still an integral part of business attire and fashion for men and women.
Folkwear offers three Victorian Vests for women and two for men. Views A and B are originally men's vests, now sized also for women. View C is a closely fitted women's vest. All three are fully lined; the backs are cut from lining fabric for comfort and to reduce bulk.
View A is a simple, collarless V-neck vest with four welt pockets and adjustable back waist belt. Center front is pointed at the bottom and rises to high hip length at sides and back.
View B is bias-cut for a decorative fabric treatment, features a shawl collar, and ends above the hipbone with a shallow point in front. Like View A, a back waist belt adjusts the fit.
View C is shorter, extending just to the waist. Four front darts fit the vest snugly to the bust. A small notched collar plunges into the double-breasted front, which closes with two rows of buttons.
Traditional Bow Tie (with instructions for tying) are also included.
