NOTE: Some seams, darts, back yokes, or other fitting-related details which are shown in the photos will change between sizes or body shapes, and may look different or be completely absent in your version (depending on your particular size or shape). Design details that don’t affect fit, such as collars or pockets, will stay the same between sizes.
WARNING: Your monitor may not show colours or textures accurately! If the exact shade is important to you, you can order a fabric swatch for $5, which will be deducted from your order.
For Tulip waistcoats, you can choose from the following galleries:
- Suitings (any)
- Faux Suedes
- Silk Brocades
- Lace Overlays.
Some materials may benefit from being made with coordinating side panels in a suiting with some give, both for comfort and appearance, depending on your preference (you can see what this looks like in the black and gold brocade waistcoat in the product photos). If you choose one of these, we’ll mention it when you email us.
The tulip waistcoat has side panels with built-in stretch, so the fit is somewhat forgiving. Remember that the waist can be made smaller by pulling in the back ties. We make these with a wearing ease of 2-3 inches above body measurement at chest level to accommodate layering except in materials with stretch (in which case, we go for 1-2 inches of ease). If you’d like your waistcoat to be made to fit looser or tighter than this, please make a note of it during your order.
