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!

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.
