Waistcoats

Yesterday’s celebrations and lovely outfits served as the inspiration for today’s vintage: the waistcoat – also known as the vest.

As far as I’m concerned, no suit is complete without one of these. And they’ve been fashionable for a very long time. In fact, it was introduced in Britain in the 1600s by king Charles II, although they were inspired by Persian clothes. For once, a member of a royal family was not only innovative, but also very stylish. (Sadly, this no longer seems to be the case in any monarchy…)

Since then, the waistcoat has managed to stay in fashion, and they come in all different colours and patterns. Most of them are singlebreasted and without lapels, but there are exceptions to this. Let’s take a look!

Staying true to the Vili Flik philosophy: always end on tartan and polkadots!

Love, Mari
