No Victorian Man’s costume should be complete without the good vest. It was often the one piece of clothing that had the most contrasting color to the rest of his suit. Stripes, plaid, paisley, and brocade were common patterns throughout the era. Single breasted and double breasted styles went in and out of fashion often as well as notch lapels, shawl lapels or no lapels. These new Victorian style men’s vests and waistcoats are ready to add to your Victorian costume.
