This waistcoat has my favorite tailored fit out of anything I’ve ever taken in to be altered. The tailoring job is exquisite and despite being a masculine garment, is extremely figure flattering. It nips at the waist and flares at the hip beautifully. It’s such a fun, dandy-esque piece that I love pulling out for summer.
Last summer, I had this waistcoat altered down to my proportions by taking up the shoulder (moved the bust, hip and hem into the right spots, as well as made the arm holes smaller) and slimming the sides. Having a skilled tailor you trust with complicated alterations is essential for an overhaul such as this. The tailor I had work on this piece is very knowledgeable in menswear tailoring, and it came out flawlessly.
