Waistcoat Vest (Tweed Charcoal)


Product Description


Our J. Higgins charcoal tweed kilt waistcoat is made from 100% wool tweed and features imitation stag horn buttons. Our argyle waistcoats use the same material in both the front and the back, making them wearable with or without our argyle jackets. It 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). Made by our talented staff here in the U.S.A.

As a general note, we ask for cloth tape measurements only. Please do not give us jacket or vest sizes from any other piece of existing clothing you have. There is virtually no standardization in the clothing industry, and unless you have a recent article of clothing from J.Higgins, we insist on accurate and specific measurements outlined in our measurement guide. Do not attempt to measure yourself, you must always use the help of someone else. All measurements are in inches.

NOTE: These tend to run small. Exchangeable and returnable if the first size doesn't fit.

  2. Too small

    Posted by T. Woods on 18th Jan 2024

    I ordered the waistcoat with my spouse assisted measurements 42 chest and 38 waist. A 44 regular nice appearing waistcoat arrived in a timely manner but was a size too small. I called J.Higgins to return for replacement with 46. On follow up call for shipping information, I was told it would be 6-8 weeks. A little late for the Burns Night…

    Perfect fit! Great quality tweed waistcoat. Perfect for a casual or a little more dressy situation. Highly recommended.

  4. well made

    I really like the vest but because its sewn straight down it is very snug on my hips. Would prefer a woman’s cut option.

  5. Not Bad For The Price

    Posted by Dennis Mc.... on 11th Dec 2021

    This charcoal vest isn't too bad for the price. It goes with anything. I bought this to use strictly without the jacket; looks sharp with just a shirt or a tie. The tweed is very nice and has a soft feel to it. The rear of the vest is not silk; tweed warps the entire vest. Quality construction. Buttons are not real stag horn, but these look decent. In US sizing, according to Higgins' site, a 42R should have worked. In UK sizing, I normally go with a 44R. The 42 was very tight, so I returned it for a 44 and it fits nicely, but NOT terribly generous. I think a 46 would be overkill. This 44 will suffice, but I dare NOT put on weight!

  6. Great waistcoat

    Posted by Unknown on 6th May 2020

    Great quality material, well cut, and nicely sewn. Clean, simple, classic casual look, exactly what I wanted. I am 6'0", ~200 lb, with a long torso; the suggested 44L fit me perfectly. Excellent customer service too. Highly recommended.
