You would lie to stay elegant but prefer wearing a waistcoat than a jacket, which sometimes looks overdressed? Then the patch-pocket waistcoat will become a central piece of your wardrobe.
Its cut is the one of a three-piece suit: it should be close fitting without ever restraining you. That is why we suggest you should pick a size smaller than your jacket’s size. If your jacket says 52, choose a size 50!
Hollington’s waistcoat shows a V-shape collar and is traditionally worn with the lower button open. The back fabric is the same as the front fabric and it has no plait to respect the pure aesthetics of the clothing line. It also holds two side slits allowing a perfect freedom of movement, and a slightly plunging cut.
Inside is a zipped chest pocket large enough to contain your wallet. Outside, three patch pockets are maintained by topstitched seams.
Hollington favours double, symmetrical seams to underline the ‘work wear’ aspect of the garment even when it is not made of work wear canvas.
