Waistcoat Vest (Black)


Product Description

Our J. Higgins Kilt Waistcoat is made from 100% wool twill (9390) in both the front and back and comes in even sizes 30 to 60 in short (5'9" and below), regular (5'10" to 6'0"), long (6'1" to 6'2") & ex long (6'3" & up).

It can be worn with or without our kilt jacket. We stock black, but we can make all the other colors found in our jacket line. Call 1-800-426-7268 for prices and delivery times. NOTE: These tend to run small. Exchangeable and returnable if the first size doesn't fit.

As a general guide, we suggest the following size per weight range. Size 32 (130-140lbs), Size 34 (141-150lbs), Size 36 (151-160lbs), Size 38(161-170lbs), Size 40 (171-180lbs), Size 42 (181-190lbs), Size 44 (191-200lbs), Size 46 (201-210lbs), Size 48 (211-220lbs), Size 50 (221-230lbs), Size 52 (231-240lbs), Size 54 (241-250lbs), Size 56 (251-260lbs), Size 58 (261-270lbs), Size 60 (271lbs & up) Made in the U.S.A.!

John's Tip:  Here's a little trick to buttoning the vest.  Square buttons are harder to button.  It's best to put a "side" in first, rather than the pointed tip.  Then rotate to secure the button in the hole.  If we made the button holes any bigger, the buttons will pull through.  We learned that back in the early 1980's.

Here are the chest and waist sizing for each size. Generally speaking the waist will be 4" smaller than the chest. If your waist measurement is bigger than the chest size, then go up to the size that will fit the waist: Chest size 32 has 29 waist, chest size 34 has 30 waist, chest size 36 has 32 waist, chest size 38 has 34 waist, chest size 40 has 36 waist, chest size 42 has 38 waist, chest size 44 has 40 waist, chest size 46 has 42 waist, chest size 48 has 44 waist, chest size 50 has 46 waist, chest size 52 has 48 waist, chest size 54 has 50 waist, chest size 56 has 52 waist, chest size 58 has 54 waist, chest size 60 has 56 waist.

  1. Very happy with the service!

    Posted by Ryan on 8th Jan 2022

    I had a large order and was very surprised with the speed of delivery. I was chunkier than I had anticipated and had to make a return for the size larger. It was a very easy and super smooth process. I was very impressed and happy with the J. Higgins crew.

  2. Prompt Exchange

    Your staff was most helpful in arranging the exchange for the correct size. Fits great! Thank you for your prompt service.

  3. Great Vest and Service

    Excellent vest, price, and service. I measured carelessly and my vest was too tight. I easily exchanged it for one the right size.

    This arrives right in time and the fit is great. I would like it to be about an inch longer but I definitely would recommend this for others. Follow the guides for sizing. Great product.

  10. Beware the Height question!

    Posted by Richard Cook on 30th Sep 2020

    Be aware that they ignore what length you order and send you the length they think you need based on how you answer the question about your height. Study what heights they assume go with what lengths, and answer the question about your height accordingly. I need length "L", always have, but the site now insists you answer the height question, and they sent me an "XL" instead of what I ordered. Another quibble: the pockets are very shallow. (John's reply: Richard, we try to take everything into account, and don't ignore some things. We attempt to do our best estimate of sizing. The XL is 1" longer than the L and I will be happy to exchange it if you'd like to send it back).
